Live Through This: Top Concerts Week Of November 19th, 2018

St. Vincent


When it comes to St. Vincent, I found her arty lilith vibe a little off putting at first, but watching her with David Byrne a coupla years ago turned me around, and a coupla additional live shows and last years terrific Masseducation sold me completely. On Tuesday she is performing an intimate show at Brooklyn Academy Of Music, and it is , of course, sold out completely. Should be something to be thankful for!

Monday – Bob Weir And Wolf Bros – Beacon Theatre – But is it a reason to be grateful?

Monday – Alan Parsons Project – The Paramount

Monday – Joshua Radin – City Winery

Monday, Tuesday – Pixies – Brooklyn Steel – Kurt Cobain fave…

Monday – Dirty Projectors – Elsewhere – Bands have a certain magic and while David Longstreth is the leader and present, his former significant other Amber Cuffman felt important for the band’s internal tick tock and they haven’t been as good since she left. SO caveat emptor but caveat anyway.

Monday – Hot 97 Presents Who’s Next? Live feat. Yella Beezy, Bros Inc., Delly, Ken Car$son, Perri Jones, NYY, Abby Jasmine, Warren Wint, Rockstar Payso & Eddie White – SOBs – Yella Beezy is the deep South rapper and he has a terrific new album, Ain’t No Going Bacc, just released.

Tuesday – Knitting Factory Presents Tech N9ne’s Independent Grind Tour – Gramercy Theatre

Tuesday – The Struts – The Paramount – Not bad garage rockers

Wednesday – Jessie Reyez – Irving Plaza – My problem with going to see my favorite young singer is the venue, the gig is sold out and if you think there is a chance in hell of actually SEEING Jessie you are mistaken I’m afraid. So is it worth paying a C-note to see nothing at all?

Wednesday – Young Fathers – Two years ago they were the greatest band in the world, but their latest is a bummer

Wednesday – Echo And The Bunnymen – Town Hall

Wednesday – A Boogie live at Freq NYC Thanksgiving Eve (18+ to party)  – FREQ

Wednesday – Hot Tuna – Beacon Theatre

Wednesday – Alex Sensation – Melrose Ballroom

Friday , Saturday – Bob Dylan – Beacon Theatre

Friday – Paula Abdul – NYCB AT Westbury – The American Idol judge!

Friday – Rufus Du Sol – Terminal 5

Saturday – Travis Scott – Prudential Center – I am going the following week at MSG

Saturday – Ja Rule – Sony Hall – he derailed his career years and years ago but it was a good career

Sunday – Pusha T – Irving Plaza – I’ve always found Pusha T iffy live but the current album is killer…

Sunday H.E.R. – Brooklyn Steel – H.E.R. had a great 2018, her opening slot on Chris Brown’s tour was a revelation.

Sunday – Maze with Frankie Beverly – NJPAC
