Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of November 13th, 2017

George and John are dead but there is still Paul and there is still Ringo, and to miss them when you can see them in concert is insane. To this day, I mean right now this minute, there are people entering this world who will eventually  discover the Beatles, and have their minds blown and their lives changed… how will you explain not seeing one of them in person?  Ringo and his All Stars are performing at the Beacon Theatre Wednesday night and while I could live without the Toto and Mr. Mister songs getting in the way, I will suffer in silence for the honor and the pleasure of hearing Starr cover Buck Owens, Carl Perkins, not to mention Lennon-McCartney.

Monday – Grace VanderWaal – Irving Plaza – The America’s Got Talent” winner is the real deal deal pop gooey stuff.

Monday –  Chief Keef Live at The Gramercy – Gramercy Theatre – He’s the “That’s the shit I don’t like” guy, and his new single “Come On Now” with Lil Yachty is excellent.

Monday – Bully –  Music Hall of Williamsburg – Terrific indie rockers skipped the sophomore slump.

Monday – Iron and Wine – Town Hall – The poster boys for folkie, down beat, Americana.

Monday – Tyler, The Creator – Terminal 5 – I remember seeing Odd Future at this very venue convinced a riot was gonna explode, yeah, you should be safe now.

Tuesday –  Dead & Company – Madison Square Garden – Yes, they sucked at Citi Field this summer, but MSG is a better venue for em…

Tuesday – Taylor Hicks with Special Guest Jamie McLean Band – BB Kings – American Idol’s token blues guy

Tuesday – Robert Gordon – American Beauty – Brought rockabilly to punk back in the day.

Wednesday – Janet Jackson: State of the World Tour – Barclay Center – The one time I saw Janet, at Radio City in the 90s, she was mindblowing. Older now, if course…

Wednesday – The Drums – Brooklyn Steel – Or is that the Drum?

Thursday – PnB Rock –  Gramercy Theatre  – I have seen the Philly rapper’s name  on so many songs I like, it is time to check him out solo.

Thursday – An Evening With Dream Theater – Beacon Theatre – A day before King Crimson hit the venue, here is American prog-rock.

Friday, Saturday – An Evening with King Crimson – Beacon Theatre –  Back to the court of the Crimson King

Friday – Tony Orlando – St. George Theatre – “Candida”? Soft rock has never been sweeter, “Knock Three Times,” “Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree”…

Friday, Saturday – Bettye LaVette – Iridium – Yeah, I found her arrangements a touch complicated as well  till I saw her perform em live.

Sunday – SQUEEZE with special guest Wesley Stace (John Wesley Harding) – Beacon Theatre – If they shut up and play the hits I’m all in.

Sunday – American Football, Land of Talk, Pure Bathing Culture –  Brooklyn Steel – Emo goes pop rock so what can go wrong?
