Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of June 11th, 2018

An 80s country superstar summit arrives at the Beacon Theatre on Wednesday, dubbed the LSD tour reaches the Beacon on Wednesday. The L is Lucinda Williams and the S is Steve Earle , I have seen L numerous times on stage, and S twice this year alone, they alone always worth seeing and a pretty ace line up, but the D is Dwight Yoakam and a country legend who I have never managed to see at all. Enjoying a lateish career reboot, Dwight has gone from strength to strength in the past few years, and if you haven’t ever seen him, this is definitely a bucket list performance.

Monday – Bilal / Ayo (Co-Bill) – Sony Hall – Neo-soul mastermind is a s great as practitioner of beautiful soulscapes as anybody out there, the intensely musical multi-tasking Ayo has a lot of reggae in her DNA.

Tuesday, Wednesday – Albert Lee – Iridum – The master fingerpicking all sessions UK born country go to guitarist

Wednesday – Def Leppard / Journey – MSG – Def Leppard is the go to 80s heavy metals go to guys, Journey aren’t.

Wednesday – Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters with Sheryl Crow and Seth Lakeman – Forest Hills Stadium, Queens, NY – Palmer was excellent when I caught him at the Beacon last February.

Wednesday – The Decemberists, M. Ward – BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn, NY – II’m no fan bit The decemberists are great on stage.

Thursday – Daryl Hall & John Oates and Train – MSG – D&H have gotten a little too jammy in the past coupla years, and Train are Train, still an interesting one-two.

Thursday –  Liz Vice-  SOBs – The big voiced woman has an  only OK but extremely well sung neo-soul album just released.

Friday – WBLI Summer Jam 2018 – A heavy duty pop star line up starring Shawn Mendes, who was excellent at Governors Ball, along with Meghan Trainor, 5 Seconds Of Summer, and more.

Friday – Alt -J – Forest Hills Stadium – With another good album in their back pocket, Alt-J has been promising some amazing amplification.

Friday – Chromeo, Pomo – Terminal 5 – Crap venue, talented disco band

Saturday – Hayley Kiyoko – Expectations North American Tour – Irving Plaza – The “Girls Like Girls” singer is awesome, and if it was at a club I liked I might have gone

Saturday – Logic Presents: Bobby Tarantino vs. Everybody Tour with NF and Kyle – Madison Square Garden – I have a ticket for this but I think I’m gonna pass although I do like Logic live and really really wanna see KYLE.

Saturday – The Joe Budden Podcast w/ Rory & Mal – Sony Hall – Joe is a great 90s rapper, and I’ve heard some good things about the trash talking trouble maker’s podcast – B

Sunday – Roger Daltrey Performs The Who’s ‘TOMMY’ with members of The Who Band and The New York Pops (Steven Reineke, Music Director and Conductor) – Forest Hills Stadium – What the fuck is The Who Band?
