Everything ends buddy, and this is the end of the Allman Brothers, the last March Madness ever. I saw em three times in the past six years and, if anything, have steadily improved over the years. And while the reports from the Beacon have been decidedly mixed, nobody is complaining. I’ll be there Friday night.
Monday – Black 47 – BB Kings – Another band calling it quits, and on this their national holiday you might wanna say goodbye.
Monday – Foster The People – MHOW – Vying for fun.’s crown, and the last single might not have sold enough but it sure had the chops.
Tuesday – Rosanne Cash – Town Hall – Caveat emptor, she will be playing her new album from one end to the other, so empot away if you so choose.
Tuesday – The Strypes – Bowery Ballroom – Very buzzy hard rock band
Wednesday- Mark Mulcahy – Lincoln Center – Boston legend knows his way round a song which is probably why he is playing the American Songbook series.
Thursday – Drive-By Truckers – Terminal 5 – Sure the newbie sucks, that don’t mean they won’t get their Skynrd on stage.
Friday – Casting Crowns – Prudential Center – One of the biggest contemporary Christian bands out there bring arena rock to Jesus.
Saturday – Kid Cudi – Barclay Center – The new album is pretty good but I’ve always found him a little dowdy on stage… could be good, could be a disaster.
Saturday – Shemekia Copland – Iridium – Standard bearer for blues and soul is always worth seeing.
Sunday – Trouser Press 40th Anniversary Celebration Ira Robbins celebrates with some of the biggest bands of the early 80s LES and YK scene.
