Active Viewin': rock nyc Concert Picks Week of August 4th, 2014

Nothing but blue skies

Nothing but blue skies

Sure, we’re hoping he returns to the Allman’s brothers for their last concerts ever in October, but even if he is, Dickey Betts, the country blues founding member of the Southern Boogie Kings, is unmissable at the Concert Hall at the New York Society for Ethical Culture this Friday. A fabulous venue (though the seats suck) for what should be a stand out performance.

Monday – The Offsprings – Terminal 5 – If all the Offsprings did was “Pretty Fly For A white Guy and “Come Out And Play” it would be enough and if they’ve done any more, what exactly is it?

Monday – One Direction – Metlife – The best boy band in the world and the first runner up.

Monday – David Gray – The Theatre At MSG – With a major new album Mutineers, just released, a major singer songwriter returns.

Monday – Ratking – SOBs – Terrific at Governors Ball in June, this is a major punk rap band.

Tuesday – Jackson Browne And John Fogerty – Jones Beach – Two masters, one is an asshole, the other a woman beater.

Tuesday – Barrington Levy – BB Kings – Dancehall king still broader than broadway….

Wednesday – Presidents of the United States of America – Irving Plaza – Two hit wonders but always better than just that

Saturday – Motown Gospel Revue – Summerstage – Smokie Norful, among others, mixing Motown and Gospel.

Saturday – Modest Mouse And Brand New – Forest Hills Tennis Stadium – One indie rock band, another indie emo band, together.
