Active Viewin': rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of July 7th, 2014
Whatever your taste and wherever it may or may not coincide with the free for all 4Knots festival at the Southside Seaport, still, nobody can deny the garage rocking , country hawking Those Darlins, a band I’ve planned on catching yp with for a coupla years now. And did I mention it is free? Saturday, July 12th 1pm – 8pm
Monday – Mary Bridget Davies – BB Kings – Broadway’s Janis Joplin
Monday – Michael Buble – Madison Square Garden – Terrific live performer, this Canadian is the standard bearer for the Great American Songbook…. the prices are ridiculous.
Tuesday – Crosby, Stills And Nash – Beacon Theater – As we eagerly await the 1974 CSN&Y live album, it is worth mentioning that they are better than ever in 2014
Wednesday – Katy Perry – MSG – The new album loses the playfulness of the first two but hopefully the live show will bring it back.
Wednesday – DIIV – MHOW – Dreamy pop from a Beach Fossil
Friday – Jay Z And Beyonce – Metlife – I hear it is over rehearsed. Perhaps, but the setlist is epic.
Friday – Procol Harum – Manhattan Center Grand Ballroom – Prog rock psycehdelia from way back
Friday – Romeo Santos – Yanke Stadium – The Justin Timberlake of Aventura riding another Bachata hit album.
Friday – Phish – Randall’s Island – They were dozy as fuck when I saw em at MSG last December, but Fuego is a very good album and it might actually rejuvenate them.
Saturday – Ab Soul – Webster Hall – 4Knots afterparty, with the best rap album of the year released, now he shows how to do it live.
