Live Through This: rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of October 3rd, 2016


We haven’t heard much from David Letterman since his retirement, leaving us to the tedious hands of Stephen Colbert, so this the New Yorker sponsored in conversation with the second best talk show host of all time (Carson was better -simply no one like him) at Mastercard Stage at SVA Theatre 1 on Friday, is a welcome return to a man I, for one, can’t wait to hear rip apart Trump.

Monday – James Blake – Radio City Music Hall – Not crazy about the latest album, and I have no idea how he is gonna fill a 5,000 seater… Vince Staples opening… should be an interesting evening

Tuesday – Tedeschi Trucks Band – Beacon Theatre – I mention this one because Dave Mason is opening.

Tuesday – How To Dress Well – Webster Hall – This lo fi r&b guy could go either way but iy he can bring it, he has to the songs to justify the interest.

Thursday – The Selecter – Too Much Pressure – Gramercy Theatre – Not the least of the Two Tone bands (and if they were? How bad can that be?) Pauline Black is singing and if they are performing their Too Much Pressure album, this should be major.

Friday, Saturday – Blake Shelton – Barclay Center – He hasn’t released a decent album Based On A True Story and even so, the man is terrific on stage.

Friday – Bruce Springsteen – The Town Hall – Q and A with the editor of the New Yorker.

Friday – Sunflower Bean – MHOW – Ready for their sophomore year…

Saturday – Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes – Bruce Springsteen without the weirdness.

Sunday – Van Morrison – Forest Hills Stadium – The new album ain’t bad and hey, he might be doing it for the money (as he mentioned to Rolling Stone) but, undeniably, he is still doing it.
