I’ve seen Art Garfunkel on stage before, but only with Paul, and as a fan of his solo career, I’ve wanted to see him solo for years and years, so Saturday night at Carnegie Hall is a biggie for me. For awhile now we thought he’d never sing again so this opportunity to hear that golden voice Isis beyond thrilling. Apparently, and amazingly, his upper octaves are still in tact
Monday – Bully – MHOW – . The debut album by these indie pop rockers is excellent and “Trying” is so good I guess I underestimated it.
Tuesday – Chvrches – Summerstage – The new album is pretty good synth and I wonder if they can bring it live.
Tuesday – Rudimental – Webster Hall – I am guessing Jesse Glynne is too big to make the trip, same with Ella Eyre, which still means they’ll be one of the best dance bands you’ll see all year.
Wednesday, Thursday – Buster Poindexter – Cafe Carlyle – Should be hot, hot, hot
Thursday – Beirut – Radio City Music Hall – Not crazy about the new album but the one time I saw them live the myriad of instruments certainly did come to life.
Thursday – Steve Wynn – Bowery Electric – The Dream Syndicate leader was terrific the last time I saw him at this venue.
Saturday – The Drifters – BB Kings – They were real good when I saw em a coupla years but what I want to see is the 1970s disco Drifters.Remember? Sure you do.
an old school New York feel
oedipal vulnerable and blue collar visceral
An emotional song with Miya’s acrobatic and vulnerable vocals
