Live Through This: Top Concert Picks For The Week Of February 11th, 2019



rock nyc writer Dorothy P meets Interpol


Headlining Madison Square Garden? It doesn’t get much bigger for Interpol, the local boys who came out of all that turn of the century, last rockers standing Strokes to Yeah yeahs to LCD scene. Mood rockers with a soupcon of Ian Curtis added to the mix, they peaked in 2002, though I prefer their 2005 Antics -they will be giving us six songs off that one on Saturday night. Opening is yet another teen lesbian with an acoustic guitar, Snail Mail, and some hetero boys with electric guitars, Car Seat Headrest.

Monday – Cherry Glazerr – Mercury Lounge – The new album is a depressing disappointment, but the venue is small, the start time 630pm, and the opening act, Snails, a terrific esperimental rapper worth the twenty bucks by herself.

Monday – Gin Blossoms: New Miserable Experience – Bowery Ballroom – If this album, and the song they wrote with Marshall Crenshaw, is all these guys have, it’s enough.

Monday – Steve Earle – City Winery – I hope he’s doing some of those Gene Clark covers

Monday – Beirut w/ Helado Negro – Brooklyn Steel – The new album is killer, the sound Beirut makes remarkable and unique folk-Americana-indie-ish

Wednesday – Action Bronson – White Bronco Tour – Irving Plaza – The deeply weird Bronson is a great rapper, maybe a little past his prime

Wednesday, Thursday  – Anita Baker – Radio City Music Hall

Thursday – Peter Murphy – Terminal 5 – From Bauhaus to a soulless warehouse

Thursday – Billy Joel – Madison Square Garden – He’ll love you just the way you are

Thursday – Gregory Porter – Beacon Theatre – Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Thursday – Kool And The Gang – Ridgefield Playhouse

Thursday – Umphrey’s McGee – Brooklyn Steel – Not perfect for Valentine’s day

Thursday – Adrianne Lenker – Music Hall Of Williamsburg – Did you read Alyson Camus’ live review (here)? She likes her…

Friday – Joe Jackson – Town Hall

Friday – BOYZ II MEN: 25th Anniversary of The Album II – Radio City Music Hall

Friday – Ladysmith Black Mambazo – If you want a taste of South African pop not lead by an old Jewish guy, try this.

Saturday – LP – Terminal 5 – A great songwriter who did a fine if thankless  job opening for Bryan Ferry a coupla years ago.

Saturday – Marc Anthony Legacy Tour 2019 – Prudential Center

Sunday –  Andrea Bocelli – Metropolitan Opera House – I keep on thinking I should see this guy, if only for the buzz, and then remembering I have seen him and was bored to tears.
