Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks 6-24-19 – 6-30-19

I caught Hugh Jackman’s one man show on Broadway back in 2011 (here), and am excited to be catching his Madison Square Garden show next Saturday night (there is a 1pm show as well, I wish I’d known about that). I wrote about the 2011 show “The performance is sexy, charming, self-effacing, hugely fun, fleet of foot, beautifully maintained, with a full orchestra and six back up dancers/singers for the guys in the audience. Jackman’s rapport is easy and genuine and his singing fine and robust. This is a star making a star turn.”. I expect less on Saturday because she is carrying that “The Greatest Showman” dog songs, replacing the, how you say, infinitely superior “Oklahoma” songs. Still, a must, must, must see…

Monday, Wednesday, Friday  – Jackson Browne – Beacon Theatre – Last year at the same venue, Jackson was spectacular (here)

Tuesday – Kiefer Sutherland – Irving Plaza – Americana film star…

Tuesday, Wednesday – Saturday – Regina Spektor – Lunt Fontanne – Part of the pop stars on Broadway that brought us Morrissey last year

Wednesday – YBN Cordae : LOST BOY TOUR Ft. Bri Steves & Akinyemi – “Have Mercy” is one of the best songs of the year.

Wednesday, Thursday – Buddy Guy – Sony Hall – He can’t do it live anymore, but he is still the last blues great standing

Wednesday – Albert Lee Band – Iridium

Thursday – Juliana Hatfield – Mercury Lounge – Her last two albums, the Olivia Newton-John one, and the new stuff from last year, should stand up well on stage

Thursday – The True Groove Allstars – Parkside Lounge – The last time I saw them here was the Black Magnolia Project set, and pretty spectacular, this time Touchy Feely and Marla Mase are front and center…

Thursday – Peter Noone – City Winery – I’m en-er-ry the eighth I am…

Thursday, Friday, Saturday  – Drive-By Truckers – At first they were overrated, now they are underrated…

Friday – Masters of Ceremony – Barclay Center – The 90s live with Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, DMX, Ludacris, The Lox, Fabolous, Cam’ron, M.O.P., Junior Reid, and Das EFX… That’s right: FABOLOUS AND CAM’RON

Saturday – Uforia La X LIVE – Prudential Center – Anuel AA, Bad Bunny, El Alfa, Lyanno, Brytiago, Rauw Alejandro, Daniel El Travieso… so not MEGASUMMER but not bad…
