Active Viewin': Concert Picks Week Of May 5th, 2014

This woman's world

This woman’s world

And now here she comes again, the woman, the legend, from Sonny and to disco diva, to half native American hippie queen who let the Stones sleep on her floor in 1964 through TV diva, divorcee, Mrs. Greg Allman, Studio 54 denizen of the demimonde, gay icon, Chastity’s Mom, and all round believer in life after love, at the Barclay on Friday. The one and only Cher.

Monday – Coldplay – Beacon Theater – Sure, I was tempted. Especially with SZA opening, right? And they are playing a 5pm and a 9pm show… cool, right? Still, it will still be Coldplay so caveat very emptor.

Monday – James Blunt – Webster Hall – I actually saw the “You’re beautiful” guy once and it was so bad he was weirdly good.

Tuesday – Johnny Halliday – French legend completely killed it when I saw him a coupla years and his fanclub translated my review into French!

Tuesday – John Hiatt – Iridium – Great club for the Americana classic.

Wednesday – Elizabeth And The Catapult – Bowery Ballroom -The opening act who I once met at a listening party for their indie folk music.

Wednesday – Wye Oak – Webster Hall – The new album by the popular indie duo ain’t bad at all.

Wednesday – Tune-Yards – Rough Trade – The Queen of loop returns

Friday – EMA – Rough Trade – Pretty good one woman electronic band whose new album has some melodic highlights.

Friday – Buster Pointdexter – Café Carlyle – Should be hot hot hot

Saturday – Mc Donald’s Gospel fest – Prudential Center – This was great at MSG for years and years

Saturday – M.I.A. / Solange – Webster Hall – I was thisclose to making this the show of the week. Should be epic.
