Gone Troubadour

Gone Troubadour



Why did George Strait not play Madison Square Garden on his farewell tour? I realize the Empire State ain’t THAT big on country, but when the biggest name (if not the single best name) in country decides to hang up his spur shouldn’t he follow LCD Soundsystems lead and do it here? Nope, the crappola Prudential Center is what we get and trust me, we will take it this Saturday. 

Monday – Sebadoh – Mercury Lounge –  Lou Barlow is in the conversation for most influential musician of the 1990s (no slouch in the 1980s either) and here is a chance to see him at very close quarters.

Tuesday – Ladysmith Black Mambazo – If all you know is “Upendi”  and “Homeless” be prepared to be wowed by this harmony band: “seven bass, a tenor, an alto and Shabala singing lead” (per j. poet on rovi).

Wednesday – St. Vincent – Terminal – I’m not saying you HAVE TO GO, but… she was awful good with David Byrne last year…

Thursday – Mayer Hawthorne – Webster Hall – The UK is in the middle of yet another soul revival, but the US’ Mayer didn’t wait for the all clear.

Thursday – The Fleshtones – The Grand Victory – One of the great garage rock bands. The new album has a song called “Remember The Ramones”… any questions?
