Remember when he was Justin Bieber Jr? Then he got the break of a lifetime, opening for Taylor Swift, and blew up like that. Good looking guy, he has the # 1 single in the country, and he is a generous live act with enough bangers and enough ballads to thrill the girls of America. He is at Barclay Center on Saturday.
Monday – Adrian Belew – Iridium – Great guitarist, Zappa and Bowie fought over him.
Tuesday – Kiss – Barclay Center
Tuesday, Wednesday – Mark Knopfler – Beacon Theatre
Tuesday – Chase Sound Check: HAIM – The Rooftop At Pier 17 – I’ve never been much of a fan but “Summer Girl” is killer.
Tuesday – Rufus Wainwright – Ridgefield Playhouse – I haven’t much cared for Rufus live since his epic and shining moment at Carnegie Hall in 2010, so caveat emptor.
Wednesday, Thursday – Tame Impala – I can’t take him at any price but you might. $50 on stubhub…
Wednesday – The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Webster Hall
Thursday – Vertical Horizon – Sony Hall
I was happier because I knew I was happy
a snapshot of big hits and high tides, mostly high tides.
There is just a lot to love
the sound seemed to erupt from every side of the room
still on top
“danceable music for the end of days”
contracts its world in Nashisms
let’s take what we are offered
It’s the music, stupid
