Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks Week Of June 10th, 2019

Julie Burchill once noted that the biggest bribery in the world of rock critics isn’t money, it’s friendship. A sentiment that’s hard not to echo. FOR INSTANCE… I was pretty sick of Jenny Lewis circa her tour with then boyfriend Johnathan Rice, then a coupla years ago I met her and was completely disarmed by her sweetness … and discovered I began to enjoy  the music again. SO… despite not being a huge Ben Gibbard (or the Postal Service) fan, I will be at Death Cab For Cuties Forest Hills gig on Saturday night where Jenny is opening.

Monday – Frank Carter And The Rattlesnakes – Mercury Lounge – Coming off a strong folk rock album

Monday – Wolfmother – Irving Plaza

Monday – OMD Peezy – SOBs

Monday – Beach House – Brooklyn Steel – If you can get past the ambience aura, they are pretty good.

Monday – Songs Of America: Tim McGraw and Jon Meacham – Tickets were as low as $20 last time I looked.

Tuesday – Justin Townes Earle – City Winery – Pushing his worst album ever

Wednesday – Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real – willie’s boy, Neil’s backing band

Thursday – Nav Bad Habits Tour – The Rooftop At Pier 17

Thursday – Howard Jones – Playstation Theatre – Men without Hats are opening

Friday, Saturday – Perry Farrell – City Winery

Friday, Saturday – Ariana Grande – Barclay Center – I am catching her next week at MSG

Friday – Real Estate – Webster – I once caught em smoking weed backstage at a gig

Friday – Kim Petras – Irving Plaza

Friday – Luis Miguel – Prudential Center – Latin pop, classicist, Mexican superstar, beg and plead for “Ahora Te Puedes Marchar”

Sunday – Wisin y Yandel – Prudential – Reggaeton stars together again

Sunday – Wu Tang Clan – Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk – Performing 36 Chambers, god forbid we get the Gods Or Rap tour…
