In what looks like a major disaster for Jimmy Buffett, Stubhub are offering tickets at $14 for his New Year’s Eve Barclay Center gig, and Ticketmaster were offering major discounts on all tickets last month. But I am spending the celebration with the son of a son of a sailor in the hope of a crowd pleasing trip to warmer climates. Huey Lewis And The News, who I have never seen, are opening the set.
Tuesday – Jazmine Sullivan – Gramercy Sullivan – Wut her first album in five years, the r&b strange and strong Reality Show, on my best of 2015 list, here is a chance to see her perform it in person. I hope she brings a band.
New Year’s Eve – Tower Of Power – BB Kings – Overpowering old school funk and soul with horns aplenty.
New Year’s Eve – Macy Gray – Iridium – Gorgeous voice
New Year’s Eve – The Dictators – Bowery Electric – Proto punks bring it still
New Year’s Eve – Gov’t Mule – Beacon Theatre – Warren Haynes jam band, I planned to go a coupla NYEs ago and fell ill -one of these days.
New Year’s Eve – Phish Madison Square Garden – When they’re good, they’re great and when they’re not they are a bore.
I can’t wait to hear the adds

I don’t believe in tomorrows
the night was quite a wild ride
I wish Cliff had beat Stormzy -who I admire but not here
we are all now sold on “Anti-Hero”
A horrorcore anthemic track with creepy vocals and abrasive guitars
they don’t quite show growth they do show
