Silverstein are the ultimate modern rock band, a mix of various cores plus screamo with songs that need to be stronger but they are also the best at what they do. Expect the Silverstein: 20 Year Anniversary Tour to be as powerful as anything in rock and scream(o) for their cover of Kanye’s “Runaway” at Webster Hall on Friday.
Monday- Thursday – Widespread Panic – Beacon Theatre – Grateful Dead pastoral jam, so if that’s you’re scene…
Wednesday Cyrus – Bowery Ballroom – Opening for Katy Perry a coupla years ago Noah was terrific, but her subsequent recordings have been disappointing.
Wednesday – Sounds of Justice: Sun Ra Arkestra and William Parker – Town Hall – Sun Ra, or what is left of his legacy, is always welcome.
Wednesday – Wye Oak – MHOW – They are from Brooklyn, right?
Wednesday – Cam-ron – Sony Hall – He was great at a hip hop festival last year and remains one of the best out there
Thursday – Celine DIon – Barclays Center – I blew it off last week for Hall & Oates
Thursday – 070 Shake – Webster Hall – her new album is a goodie and if it was a Friday I might break my Webster Hall renovation cherry with it.
Thursday, Friday – Silversun Pickup – Brooklyn Steel
Thursday – Big Country – Sony Hall – One hit wonders sure, but Stuart was always a great songwriter and better guitarists and twenty years after his death I am happy the band exists, Richard Lloyd is opening and let’s hope BC cover some Skids.
Friday, Saturday – The Jayhawks – Brooklyn Bowl
Friday – Fabolous Cold Summer Tour – Apollo Theatre – The new album is strong and on stage less year he was as great as the man who taught Pusha T a lesson at BB Kings a few years ago.
Friday – Steve Aoki – Avant Gardner – More than just the scion of the hibachi king, an extremely popular DJ
Saturday – Destroyer – Brooklyn Steel
Saturday – Patti Austin – Sony Hall
