Don’t – Ed Sheeran – I’ll believe most things given the opportunity, but Ed as a tousle headed ladies man, sleeping with a popular pop singer and writing songs about it? That’s pushing me to the outer limits of credibility. Maybe if he had sex appeal? – B-
Keep It Gay – Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick – Uproariously funny celebration of all things camp and magical and, well, gray about the musical theater… stopped the show when I saw it on Broadway. Of course, so did everything else – B+
A huge week, the debut album by Big Freedia, a really great disco guy whose 2012 “Booty-Whop” and current “Explode” are just so much fun, Cerebral Balzy are a blast live, everything I’ve heard off Lana’s Ultra Violence has been first rate, and J Lo better come up with the goods, but the week belongs to soul brother # 1 Sam Smith’s eagerly anticipated debut album.
