Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of March 2nd, 2015


Gregory Porter is having some 2015, a top 10 album in the UK is great, and the loud and intense approval of your some of the biggest names in pop music, Sam Smith for one, should make this a big gig,  but singing a duet with Van Morisson on Van’s next album? That’s BIG.  You can catch Gregory yourself, alongside rock nyc friend, bluesman Tomas Doncker, on Sunday afternoon: “The Harlem Arts Salon presents a jazzy, bluesy Sunday afternoon of music, poetry, an intimate chat with participating artists, food, art exhibition/silent auction on March 8, 2015, from 2:00 to 6:00pm at Harlem-MIST, 46 West 116 Street in Harlem. This event is a fundraiser for The Gloster Project, a free summer arts camp for kids in rural Southwestern Mississippi, an initiative of Margaret Porter Troupe Arts Projects. ” More info here.

Tuesday – Kat Edmondson – Le Poisson Rouge – The “Who’s Counting” singer with the Billieish voice and the jazz chops at a msallish venue.

Wednesday – Ratking – Marlin Room At Webster Hall – Trash Talk, who are great as well, are headlining but Ratking? the great young hip hop collective who made off with Governors Ball last year.

Thursday – Maroon 5 – Madison Square Garden – When last seen, they were feeling their age at Jingle Ball… though everybody over 16 was feeling their age. Their latest single, “Sugar” is a goodie.

Thursday – Will Butler – Bowery Ballroom – Tearing himself away from today’s headlines, the other other Arcade Fire is off and running. I don’t think Win is worried.

Friday – Hozier – Beacon Theatre – On Spotify, “Take Me To Church” streamed 225M times, the next nearest song? 20K. So if this is Hozier’s moment, he is a talented fellow and I hope he enjoys it.

Saturday – Bjork – carnegie Hall – I won’t be seeing her for another two weeks, and this first show post Vulnerica should be a giant.

Saturday – Gang Of Four – Irving Plaza – I’m not crazy about the new album  but hold the band in the highest regard.

Saturday – Bobby Vinton – The Fox Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino – Why do these late 50s, early 60s guys not play nyc? The Concert Hall or BB Kings would be happy to see em and I certainly would be

Sunday – Dropkick Murphys – Irving Plaza – The Irish Rovers via Boston aren’t New York enough but that’s about the only complaint.
