Active Viewin': Concert Picks week of August 5th, 2013

Still shting stanging














If all you had on Saturday evening at the Lincoln Center was a Nick Lowe solo concert under the stars, it would be enough to maybe have the top pick for the week. But what you actually have is Nick Lowe, with Jason Isbel, yes, that one, and James Burton, yes, that one as well, opening. Now that’s easily the line up of the week. Like easily, easily. But here is the kicker: it is free.

Monday –  Central Park Summerstage King Kong – From the guys who brought you “Sleep No More” and “The Power Of The Trinity”, a hip hopera as the Bronx Burns.

Tuesday – Summerstage – Disclosure – sold out! Go figure

Tuesday – Under The Influence Of Music – Jones Beack – A$AP Rocky, Trinidad James, Wiz Khalifa – Well, except for Wiz not bad.

Friday – Amanda Palmer – Lincoln Center – When last seen she was blowing the roof off Webster Hall… Lincoln Center’s Damrosh Park doesn’t have a roof…

Saturday – Trixie Whitley – Lincoln Center – A 1pm set, and if she is half as good as she was at LPR…

Saturday – the Black Crowes – Jones beach – Southern boogie band lives on

Saturday – Kiss –  Mohegan Sun – Kiss have an opening act, Leogun? What’s that about?

Saturday – Justin Hayward – The Concert Hall – Prog rock’s fave bassist flys solo

Saturday – No Name # 1: A celebration Of The Life And Music Of Elliott Smith – Bowery Ballroom – Starring Rhett Miller and Mary Lou Lord
