Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert PicksWeek Of September 12th, 2016


East Village Eye is the early 80s arts and culture magazine where I got my start. It hasn’t been around for decades but “An Arturo Vega Project is pleased to shine a light on another important source of East Village social and cultural history: The East Village Eye. A monthly magazine published from 1979 through 1987, The East Village Eye focused on popular and avant-garde culture, politics and other issues relevant to the East Village and environs.” On Friday: East Village Eye party starring James Chance & The Contortions, Lenny Kaye, The Sic F*cks with Tish & Snooky of Manic Panic, Rubulad’s DJ Shakey & Hotel Amazon’s DJ Wazu. MC: comic Tessie Chua. Presented by Hotel Amazon. $12 in advance. More acts TBA. 21 and over or good fake ID. (After art opening 6-8 at Howl Happening, 6 East 1st St.).

Monday – Continuum 10: Celebrating the Music of John Mayer – The Marlin Room Webster Hall – Really! I am intrigued. I wonder who their guitarist will be.

Monday – Peaches – Rough Trade – The UK pop, art, rap woman released a terrific album, Rub, last year and has a remix EP out.

Monday – Echo And The Bunnymen – Webster Hall – If they were performing Heaven Up Here, I’d be so there.

Tuesday – ANDY FAIRWEATHER LOW & THE LOW RIDERS – BB Kings – The former Amen Corner lead singer was pretty darn good when I caught him opening for Clapton a coupla years ago.

Tuesday – John Mayall – Highline Ballroom – His Bluesbreakers was a breeding ground for the likes of Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Andy Fraser…

Tuesday – Peaches – Webster Hall – The UK pop, art, rap woman released a terrific album, Rub, last year and has a remix EP out.

Wednesday – The Beach Boys – Summerstage – When Brian is with em, they are an art band with a pedigree, when Mike Love is leading, they are a pop band trading on nostalgia. Mike is leading.

Wednesday – AC/DC – This is where Axl Rose -so great at Metlife earlier this year, takes over as lead singer for a tour.

Wednesday – Cute Is What We Aim for 10-Year Anniversary Tour – Panic! contemporaries, these emo guys were the best of the pack.

Wednesday – Sound Series: Yo La Tengo with Special Guest, Lambchop – The Alchemy – We haven’t heard from Lambchop in a coupla years, he’d be reason enough to check the show out.

Thursday – Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 – Radio City Music Hall – Are they taping this, we knew Lady Gaga would show, but Diana Krall? Michael Buble? Must be taping it…

Friday – Carol Burnett: An Evening of Laughter & Reflection – Beacon Theatre – The funny woman is always worth visiting.

Friday, Saturday – Jeff Lynne’s ELO – Radio City Music Hall – The Beatle fan cum producer cum Travelling wilbury and more, I wasn’t crazy about his last album but even so…

Friday – Psychic TV: “Alienist” Record Release Show – Yup, the post-punk stalwarts are still around.

Saturday – Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Parts 1 and 2 – Palace Theatre – I will be in London for the weekend so I am catching both parts of this Harry Potter reboot, before it reaches Broadway (2017 is my bet). It should make “Hamilton” tickets in its prime look like  an easy get.

Saturday – The Proclaimers – Gramercy Theatre – Sure, they’re one hit wonders but they are such nice guys.

Sunday – Jim Morrison Celebration Featuring Wild Child – I saw these guys once and thought they were one of the best tribute bands in the business.
