Live Through This: rock nyc’s Concert Picks 11-7-16 – 11-13-16


James Chance returns to Bowery Electric for his second (sold out?) performance in a month, pushing his 11-11 new album The Flesh Is Weak, with the revitalized Contortions, on True Groove Records. If you’ve never seen the no new york hero, get ready to contort and melt yourself into a hot sweat of funk grooviness and jazz embellishments, medieval black arts and James Brown sightings. It will be epic on Thursday.

Monday – Elvis Costello & the Imposters – Beacon Theatre – The Imperial Bedroom tour so it should be a goodie.

Monday – James Vincent McMorrow, Dan Mangan – Sold Out – Webster Hall – McMorrow is one of the most significant singer songwriters around, I wonder if he can bring it live.

Monday – Yellowman – BB King’s – The young, gifted and yellow Reggae superstar gets his rub-a-dub on.

Monday, Wednesday- Friday, Sunday – Gregg Allman – City Winery – The brother who lived… standing room only

Thursday – Maxwell and Mary J. Blige: King and Queen of Hearts Tour – Madison Square Garden – Not neo-soul, not r&b, this is the sound of soul music circa 2016. Maxwell’s current album is a biggie and if you haven’t forgiven Mary J for her excruciating Clinton interview, the new single “Thick Of It” should help.

Thursday – The Julie Ruin – Irving Plaza – From vanity project to a top punk rock band in three years.

Thursday – Digital Planets – Webster Hall – Just before Jigga and Biggie, jazz and rap were getting together for artistically varied and gloriously melodic bands like A Tribe Called Quest, and this terrific early 1990s duo. Check em out if you doubt me.

Friday – Fidlar Too Much Tour with Special Guests SWMRS and the Frights – Terminal 5 – So they’ve graduated to T5, eh?

Saturday – Pet Shop Boys: The SUPER Tour – The Theatre At MSG – I was a huge fan till I saw em live maybe five years ago and ever since then, well, I haven’t been a huge fan. But you could do a lot worse…
