The legendary rhythm guitarist for Television -on both Marquee Moon and Adventure, Richard Lloyd never joined Johnny Thunders in junkie heaven, instead cleaning up in the 80s and returning to music on the Lower East Side, where he remains. Always one of the CBGBs All Stars, with a couple of excellent solo albums to his name, Richard is performing at Bowery Electric on Friday. Demand “Alchemy”.
Monday – EVERCLEAR 20th Anniversary Tour – Sparkle and Fade – BB Kings – Well, so much for the Afterglow as Art Alexakis failed to maintain the buzz around his first album. So, why not just play it, right? Right.
Tuesday – Kinky Friedman – The country Jewboy (his term not mine), has a terrific new album, The Loneliest Man I Ever Met, and enough classics to fill a terrific two hours.
Wednesday – Cutting Room – SImon Townshend – Pete’s kid brother, with chops of his own.
Thursday – CMT On Tour: Suits & Boots with Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett – Terminal 5 – Two top modern country popsters,if it was anywhere else it would be a must see. Sold out, by the way.
Friday – Joanna Gruesome – Rough Trade – Their current album is chock full of pop punk keepers.
Friday – Fuse TV Presents: Big Freedia – Bounce Shakedown Tour 2015 – Last time I saw the disco diva and reality star she was blowing up Terminal 5 and should be eye popping on a small stage.
Saturday, Sunday – Dead And Company – Madison Square Garden – So the Grateful Dead without Jerry Garcia and Phil Lesh
