Keith’s best album since 2018
Cigarettes After Sex are at the Ace Hotel on Friday, at the Fonda Theatre on Saturday
A heavy duty concert week for me, Keith Urban, Action Bronson, Danny Brown, The Roots, Katy Perry and Chronixx, and not a dog in the lot but pride of place goes to Keith because it was just such a cool scene and Keith was a good natured country ramblin’ guy AT FORTY SIX!!!!
Taping Of Keith Urban For PBS' "Front And Center" At Highline Ballroom, Monday, July 21st, 2014, Reviewed
Keith was unhappy with the first take on “Till Summer Comes Round” (off Defying Gravity) and played it again, killing the momentum further, though the second version had a much much better ending and it took until that end, 20 minutes into the 80 minute second set, for Keith to get the set back on track.
Who ever thought Danny Brown would be the greatest growing up? Two terrific albums later, Danny sure is one of the best, Joined by Black Hippy Schoolboy Q and hero in his hometown Action Bronson for this years PeterPalooza # 3 at Best Buy on Wednesday. Should be the rap show of the year.
When it comes to ands like electronic duo Purity Rings I really show my age Dark Horse – Kidz Bop because they bore me to tears even though they have a gorgeous moodiness to them and if you want to hear them, the company of Danny Brown is where to do it – B+
So why go to catch him at Highline Ballroom? Simple: I can’t resist the tiny environment. How often do I get the chance to see Keith in a club where everybody you see there just because it is so damn small. I’ve seen both Blondie and Brian Wilson kill it there, and thisclose to the show as well.
Anarchy In The UK – Motley Crue – Do I buy into this being a lousy cover? Absolutely. And every attempt to switch from the UK to the US was a complete disaster. But so what? Who else is singing Sex Pistols songs in 2014? – B
Somewhere In My Car – Keith Urban – Thumps a little hard for country rock and pops a little too much for country or rock, this is the sound of country music running down the drain and as spectacularly bad a song as “American Kids” if not worse – D+
But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!
LL Cool J was bad last year and worst this year. The “Mama Said Knock You Out” in Tux and smile sprouted poorly written platitudes about music bringing people together. Really, I mean, really?? It was skin crawlingly insincere bullshit of immense proportions, I wonder how all these overfed over glorified nitwit pop stars can listen to this crap without throwing up
