Live Through This: rock nyc Concert Picks For The Week Of May 14th, 2018

Now that rock n roll is in the worst state imaginable, it should be fun to catch two of the great personifiers of Brit Rock in the ’90s, Liam Gallagher (Oasis) and Richard Ashcroft (The Verve), performing at Summerstage. The problems with Summerstage are pretty well documented, it is a loud place where audiences spend the show talking to each other and you’re stuck up front and you’re stuck at the back.  Even so, Liam is a great singer and always worth your time. Also, you know it will be over by 10pm because of noise laws. So this Wednesday…

Monday – Florence + The Machine and Serpentwithfeet – Brooklyn Academy Of Music –  Monday – I’ve seen Florence Welch twice and she was a straight drag both times so why recommend this, especially since the new singles aren’t very good? Because of serpentwithfeet,  the great neo-soul person.

Tuesday – Wye Oak – Brooklyn Steel – Mood music, these depressive Alty Americana guys worry me -they sound too depressed and I don’t take depression amusingly anymore.

Wednesday – The Fratellis – Brooklyn Steel – The latest album is their best in years.

Thursday – Speedy Ortiz – Brooklyn Steel – They are better live then and record and these indie rockers are pretty good in person

Friday – Jackson Browne – Beacon Theatre – I saw Browne last the day before he was inducted into the “Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame” in 2004 and he was great, so I go to this show overwhelmed by anticipation…

Friday – ANDREW W.K. YOU’RE NOT ALONE LIVE IN CONCERT WITH HIS FULL BAND 2018 – Irving Plaza – Sure he sucks, but he sucks and is fun on stage.

Saturday – Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies, Murphy’s Law – Prudential Center – Yeah, yeah, yeah the ORIGINAL Misfits, and two great openers… But what’s with this no cell crappola?

Saturday – William Shatner LIVE with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – NJPAC – Look, even William won’t last forever so check him out while you can.

Saturday, Sunday – Curated by David Lynch – Festival of Disruption – -Saturday: MUSIC: Animal Collective, Flying Lotus (DJ set), Jon Hopkins / TALKS & SCREENINGS: David Lynch and Rare Short Films, Isabella Rossellini and Blue Velvet, Gregory Crewdson and There But Not There / EXHIBITS: William Eggleston, David Lynch, Sandro Miller, David OReilly / MEDITATION: Bob Roth and Brian Eno’s Reflection – Sunday – MUSIC: Angel Olsen (Solo), Animal Collective, Au Revoir Simone, Flying Lotus (DJ set), Hudson Mohawke (DJ set), Jim James (Solo), Jon Hopkins, Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsytem (DJ set), Rebekah Del Rio / TALKS & SCREENINGS: David Lynch and Rare Short Films, Isabella Rossellini and Blue Velvet, Gregory Crewdson and There But Not There / EXHIBITS: William Eggleston, David Lynch, Sandro Miller, David OReilly / MEDITATION: Bob Roth and Brian Eno’s Reflection – I’d rather be poked in the eye with a stick… you might well disagree.

Saturday – Courtney Barnes – MHOW – No promises, but she has a good new single.
