Live Through This: Top Concert Picks week Of March 4th, 2019
Robyn’s eagerly anticipated album from last year, Honey, didn’t do the business it should have though dance maven top of the top Swedish superstar certainly deserved a smash hit on her hands. The show is practically a sell out and for a woman who has been in the 10s that is both a surprise and not a surprise because when it comes to Robyn we are fanatics. I even went to see her give an interview last year (here) . Of course, I will be at Madison Square Garden on Friday to see this huge show.
Monday – The Monochrome Set – Bowery Ballroom
Tuesday – Marshall Crenshaw – City Winery – I haven’t checked in in awhile…
