Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers aka the indie folk supergroup boygenius, are at the dreaded Brooklyn Steel on Tuesday and Wednesday, completely sold out of course, yet a generation apart from King Princess, the two thirds queer identified, whole antimusic biz stars are at the height of their powers, the picture by the way? Apparently they like “Marrakesh Express” as well, or deep harmonies, or both…  I have a ticket and I am seriously considering losing my Brooklyn Steel cherry…

Monday – Billie Eilish – Brooklyn Steel – Did you know that the sixteen year old wunderkind from LA was home schooled? It’s funny because it’s true. This new school of electronic popsters remind me of elder statesman Lana Del Rey…

Monday – Colter Wall – Irving – The most miserable Americana in the country…

Monday – Hoodie Allen – Gramercy Theatre

Monday – Cantamos – A Celebration Of Spanish Song – United Palace

Monday – Edwin McCain – City Winery

Monday – BWF & NYCF Present Stand Up For Heroes – Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden – Eric Church will be there and there is a rumor Bruce Springsteen will show.

Monday, Tuesday – Lake Street Drive – The last album dogged but I liked it fine.

Monday – Edie Brickell – Music Hall Williamsburg – If you wanna go to MHOW now would be the time.

Tuesday – Papa Roach – Coney Island Baby

Tuesday – Petula Clark – Sony Hall – Mid-Town, where everything is waiting for you

Wednesday – Cursive – Irving Plaza

Wednesday – Blue October – Highline Ballroom

Wednesday – Big Red Machine with special guests Sam Amidon, Lisa Hannigan, & Naeem – Terminal Five

Wednesday – Lucinda Williams And Her Band Buick 6 – Beacon Theatre – Performing Car Wheels On A Gravel Road -though I’d prefer Happy Woman Blues…

Thursday, Friday – Elton John: Farewell Yellow Brick Road – Madison Square Garden

Thursday – Gregory Porter, Dianne Reeves – NJPAC
