Vanity, MJ Vision Group, Michael D’Addario Trio @ ALPHAVILLE
Glammy punk-n-roll act Vanity headline this show but The Lemon Twigs’ Michael D’Addario in on the bill as well, playing with friends doing a mix of covers and other non-Twig material. In between is Nashville’s MJ Vision Group led by Mimi and Jessica of Savoy Motel and Heavy Cream.
The Nude Party, Las Rosas, Glove @ Baby’s All Right
Brooklyn’s Las Rosas play the kind of catchy garage-y, Brit-influence psych pop that sounds more than a little like The Kinks. They celebrate the release of their new 7″ tonight with NC transplants The Nude Party tonight.
Jools Holland @ Blue Note
These days Jools Holland is best known as host of popular musical variety series Later…With Jools Holland which has aired on BBC 2 since 1992.

Springsteen on Broadway @ Walter Kerr Theatre
The Boss continues his completely sold-out “Springsteen on Broadway” run at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which has now been extended through June!
