Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of November 5th, 2018
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 – Hoodie Allen – Gramercy Theatre
Monday – Cantamos – A Celebration Of Spanish Song – United Palace
Monday – Edwin McCain – City Winery
