Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks, Week Of May 18th, 2015


It is City Park Foundation’s 30th anniversary of Summerstage, the arts but mostly musical citywide free concert spectacular. They are kicking things with this early opening concert at Summerstage in Central Park on Monday, featuring one of the biggest jam bands around, the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Expect a lotta BB Kings covers… and for free.

Monday – Palma Violets – Bowery Ballroom – The new album is a disappointment but they should be a world class UK rock class. Opener Public Announcement TV are pretty good as well.

Tuesday – Courtney Barnett – Australian singer songwriter, very buzzy, though I myself think she is way overrated despite her skills as a lyricist. We will see…

Wednesday – Primal Scream – Irving Plaza -On record from 1989 to 2000 they were the world’s greatest rock band and then they stopped being the world’s greatest rock band, live they remain great.

Wednesday – Buffy Sainte-Marie – Those Native Americans have powers, I’m telling you. How else to explain 74 year old Buffy releasing one of her best albums of her career last week? A must see.

Wednesday – TV On The Radio – Kings Theatre – I was a little disappointed in their latest, not devastated, it was just a little bland. But when I saw em last year they’d lost nothing on stage.

Thursday – The B-52s – Irving Plaza – Always a pleasure and in this small room especially.

Thursday – Sam Cohen – Mercury Lounge – If I liked his voice more I’d love this Texan singer songwriter, that’s what caused me to underestimate his fine new quirky album Cool It.

Saturday, Sunday – Electric Daisy Carnival – Metlife – Two names I’d love to see (again in one case):  Armin van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, and many many more.
