Concerts of the Week

Sunday, June 24, Pines Theater
Northampton Mass

America's band. Wilco's Jeff Tweedy helped invent "Americana" music (sorry to disappoint Jim Vicevich who thinks he invented it). And Tweedy has carried this band from careening rock, through insurgent country music, immersing in experimental sounds and all the way back to melodic, insistent, important rock.

Old Crow Medicine Show

Monday, June 25, East Hartford Cultural Center
East Hartford, CT

Imagine what country music sounded like just before Elvis Presley corrupted it forever. You'll have some sense of what this band is all about. Energy, creativity, edginess and excellent musicianship. No one has departed an Old Crow show disappointed. Proteges of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, this band plays to sold-out screaming audiences all over the map.

Considered Briefly

Bob Dylan and Morrissey on consecutive evenings at the Pines Theater, June 26 and June 27. Pick your poison.

That was a hoppin' show. Didn't expect anything less and got everything I asked for. Glad I got tix in advance!
