Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The week Of February 17th, 2020

The last time I saw Renee Fleming she was killing it on Broadway’s revival of “Carousel” a couple of years ago with the great American soprano singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” as perfect as you’d hoped she’d be post-retirement for opera. On Thursday, Friday (when I’m going) and Saturday, she won’t be performing Rodgers And Hammerstein, she will perform, as part of the New York Philharmonic’s Project 19, an initiative that features commissions by 19 women composers in honor of the centennial of the 19th Amendment. It runs Thursday-Saturday and I will be there for the last performance at David Geffen Hall. Though Renee performs only four song, the rest of the evening looks great as well.

Monday – Broadway Sings Queen – Sony Hall – What we want is Opera Stars sing Queen, but this will do.

Tuesday – Eagles – Madison Square Garden – One of those shows you should really consider seeing (here)

Tuesday – Jacquees – King of R&B Tour – Warsaw

Tuesday – Post Malone – Runaway Tour – Prudential Center – He gets on late and plays for just an hour but, man, what songs.

Wednesday – Soul Asylum w/ Local H – Bowery Ballroom – Two top 90s grunge bands

Wednesday – Bat for Lashes – Town Hall

Thursday – Kool Moe Dee & Family – The Treacherous One…

Thursday – Sloan – Bowery Ballroom – a strong, longstanding, power pop band

Thursday – Kamasi Washington – Kings Theatre

Thursday – Who is Jill Scott? 20th Anniversary Tour – Radio City Music Hall – a fine soul single performing her wonderful debut album

Friday – Drive-By Truckers – I was close to going to this show, I just don’t like their new album. (except for “Armageddon’s Back In Town”).. you might…

Saturday – The Wonder Years – Webster Hall – Perhaps the most disappointing band of all time, they\never came close to following up The Greatest Generation, so, yeah…

Saturday – Tory Lanez & Friends: Chixtape Live – Chixtape isn’t his greatest moment but still should be amazing

Saturday –  Chrisette Michele – a fine r&b singer

Sunday  – Woody Guthrie Center Presents This Land Is Your Land – The Town Hall – Jeff Tweedy is behind it

Sunday – Trippie Redd – Terminal 5 – I like Redd a lot in theory but he was terrible opening for Travis SCott two years ago… maybe he has figured it out
