Wednesday -Sturgill Simpson – Bowery Ballroom – I’m not a big fan myself,and Steve Crawford wasn’t crazy for him either, but the crown prince of Americana has some rep and if he wasn’t playing Governors Ball this Spring, I’d have probably checked him out
Friday – The Hold Steady – Bowery Ballroom – Wasn’t crazy about em opening for the Replacements last year, but still they should know what to do at Bowery Ballroom, plus they wrote one or two of my favorite songs ever… the most reason song five years ago.
Saturday – The Stylistics – Beacon Theatre – A 3pm Valentines gig… The Stylistics, Dramatics, The Manhattans, The Delfonics, Blue Magic… you’re joking me, right?
Saturday – Kenny ‘babyface’ Edmonds -the Theatre Of Madison Square Garden – the best soulman of the 80s.
Saturday – Marc Anthony – Prudential Center – 3.0 was a terrific album and he is always first rate on stage.
