Live Through This: rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of June 27th, 2016


Their  first local gig since 1995, the Stone Roses are at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, playing a set incredibly heavy on the first album and nearly non existent on the second, so I guess the second is not coming. One of the most important UK bands of the early 1990s, they invented Madchester and lead the way directly the Brit Pop. How it isn’t sold out is beyond me. A must see.

Monday – Ceu, Kauf – Highline Ballroom – When your pop move doesn’t fly, you go back to what you know best: Brazilian pop, which is what Ceu did on her last album. Me, I preferred her more Westernized but I’ll take her as she comes.

Wednesday – Pere Ubu: Coed Jail! Songs From 1975-1982 – Bowery Ubu – Well, if they are gonna mine their history, those are the years to mine.

Thursday, Friday – Paul Simon – Forest Hills Stadium –  I’m not crazy on his newbie but there will be enough old ones to keep us entertained. Plus, cmon this is ground zero for Paulie.
