Maybe the best hip hop show, maybe Chance The Rapper beat em but the venue was so uncomfortable it didn’t feel that way, either way Drake at MSG last August was an event, a full throttle hit percolating mass seduction by the former TV star who dominated the charts in the first three quarters of 2016. Perhaps Future will have figured out his boring mini set by Saturday night at the Prudential.
Monday – Christine And The Queens – Terminal 5 – The French dancer cum beats and indie pop star had a hit last year with “Tilted” though her apparently astounding live performance is the reason to go.
Tuesday, Wednesday – Drake – Barclay Center – If you can’t wait till Saturday…
Tuesday – Steely Dan – Beacon Theatre – The great band begin their annual October residency.
Thursday – Annie Sofie Von Otter And Brooklyn Rider – Carnegie Hall – Opera and art pop meet when the great Mezzo Soprano and a terrific string quartet get snooty.
Thursday – Ja Rule – 58 Below – The early 00s rap King got derailed to prison and never made it all the way back, but there was a reason he was so popular, and I don’t just mean his Busta sounding “Always On Time”.
Friday – Megadeth – Prudential Center – Last time I saw Mustaine he was holding his own with Motorhead, and Suicidal Tendencies are not Motorhead so assume Megadeth will appear to be even better than they are
Friday, Saturday – An Evening with Bob Weir – King’s Theatre – The new album is a killer deal and the show should be terrific, or it could be soporific.
Saturday – Charles Aznavour – He is 92 years old and a living legend everywhere but here, all you know here is “She”. well, take the opportunity to learn more.
Saturday – Tidal X 1015 – Barclay Center – This is that round robin gig where everybody sings a song, everybody includes Lauryn Hill, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and more.
Saturday – Summer Sixteen Tour with Future – Stage 48 – If Future is performing post-Prudential, it will be a late night but worth the lack of sleep.
