Psychedelic Furs at E2NY in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Last fall, The Psychedelic Furs went on a month-long tour with Tom Tom Club, which brought them to the NYC-area a few times in October. Check out some videos from their Irving Plaza show (10/3/11) below.
They'll return to the NYC-area this March on their recently announced short run of Northeast US dates, which culminates on March 24 and 25 at Maxwell's. Tickets for those shows are on sale now. The dates don't include any actual NYC shows at the moment, but they do play NY at Tarrytown Music Hall on March 22, so maybe they'll end up fitting one in. Tickets for the Tarrytown show are on sale now.

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings play their last of four NYC shows (seven NY shows total) this evening (12/14). Like last night, they're back at Bowery Ballroom. Their first two shows were at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and one day after those they played the seated Tarrytown Music Hall with the Starlight Girls. Here are some pictures from that one.
Earlier on tour Sharon and band opened some shows for My Morning Jacket who play Madison Square Garden with Band of Horses tonight (12/14).

I escaped the madness of CMJ on Friday hopping the Metro-North to catch Andrew Bird at the charming Tarrytown Music Hall. The bustle of a small town on a Friday night, a tiny street fair and a couple of musical acts accompanied the short walk from the station. It was unexpected but gave the main strip a festive fall atmosphere.
With Sock Monkey perched behind him, Bird played in his shoes this time, despite shouts from sold-out audience to remove them, admitting that years of playing in his colorful socks had taken a toll on his legs.
The setlist was sweeping; hitting seldom played songs, such as a condensed and cabaret-style take on "The Naming Of Things", staples like "Why" and "Plasticities" and a host of new songs (a new full length is due in March) including standout "Lusitania.") He also played "Bein' Green" from Muppets: The Green Album and, during the encore, a cover of The Handsome Family's "So Much Wine" as well as "Happy Day" from the Trials of Darryl Hunt soundtrack. Joining Bird mid-way through the set was collaborator and show opener, Dosh. At one point the two performed an improvisational piece, something they've be doing over the course of the short, nine-city, Northeast tour. Bird prefaced the number by telling the audience the nightly experiments had been going so well there would likely be a record.
Dosh's opening set of electronic, percussion- and keyboard-based instrumentals was excellent. The set contained the familiar (to Andrew Bird fans) music of "Simple X" to which Bird added lyrics for the track that appeared on Armchair Apocrypha.

The Zombies on Fallon
The Strawbs started things off with their unique brand of progressive folk. Founding member and lead vocalist Dave Cousins was joined by other longtime members Dave Lambert and Chas Cronk who provided guitar, bass, samples, and harmony vocals to the trio's drum-less set. The whole set was pretty great but everything really came together on the 8-minute epic "Autumn."
After about a half hour break, The Zombies took the stage, kicking their set off with their cover of "Sticks and Stones," which appears on their 1965 debut LP. After a few more early cover tracks and a fair amount of material off their recently released Breathe Out, Breathe In, The Zombies went into a much anticipated segment of songs from Odessey and Oracle. They delivered some of the albums strongest cuts, including "Care of Cell 44," "Beechwood Park," "This Will Be Our Year," and of course "Time of the Season." Though only two of the original members remain in the band, the sunshine pop vocal harmonies that made me fall in love with Odessey and Oracle were spot on, as were Rod Argent's driving organ solos. After the Odessey and Oracle section had unfortunately ended, the band played more new stuff and an Argent song, before returning to a high point with standout singles, "Whenever You're Ready," "Tell Her No," and the early psychedelia of "She's Not There."
The Zombies and The Strawbs are continuing to tour North America and will hit NYC's City Winery on September 26 and 27. Tickets are still on sale for both shows.

Alejandro Escovedo @ Clearwater Fest 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
From the opening power chords of "Always a Friend" from "Real Animal" to the finishing frenzy of the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog," Alejandro Escovedo performed energetic versions of favorites ("Castanets"), selections from the upcoming "Street Songs of Love" album (the title tune was a standout) and covers of the Rolling Stones' "Beast of Burden" and "Sway."The above review is from Alejandro Escovedo's gig on Friday, April 2nd at Southgate House in Newport, KY. He plays tonight (4/8) at the lovely Tarrytown Music Hall in Westchester with his band, and Graham Parker opening. Tickets are still on sale.
He remembered recently deceased friends and collaborators Alex Chilton (the Box Tops, Big Star) and Stephen Bruton ("Crazy Heart") with a passionate "Sister Lost Soul." He thanked Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter for standing by him during his bout with hepatitis-C in the new "Down in the Bowery." And he debuted "Gotta Have Faith" with "This is the one from the new album that the guy from New Jersey sings on." Bruce Springsteen would have been proud of the economy of the introduction.
This was the third of nine shows the band is playing before the June 29 release of "Street Songs of Love." Afterward, fans pleaded for a promise to return on the next leg. Cross your fingers now. It's not too early to start wishing. [Cincinnati.com]
The show is one of the only NYC-area stops on his current tour. The other is an afternoon at "Concerts In The Studio" held in Freehold, NJ (about 90 minutes from NYC by train) on Sunday, April 11th. The shows take place in a photo studio next to the home of the hosting couple, Mark & Elaine who seem to be drawing a highly respectable group of performers for their shows. Also on the schedule is a gig with X members John Doe and Exene Cervenka on May 1st. Info on those and other upcoming shows is at their website.
All Alejandro dates and videos of both the studio and Alejandro (who was at SXSW), as well as the tracklisting for the above-referenced new album, are below...
