Last week, Norah Jones at the Hammersmith Apollo. I know, I know, and I was not sure why I'd booked even before it started. I mean, I've never bought the new album. But as I'm sure I bored everyone wi

Going to see the Finn brothers in Central Park this evening. I assumed it would have sold out, but I got a message pushing half price tickets which I couldn't resist. Think it will piss down?

I always thought it was weird when Darin after modeling himself on Sinatra suddenly began emulating Tim Hardin.

Of course, the real irony there is that Tim Hardin's last hit single (in the US, anyway) was written by Bob "Don't Call Me Bobby" Darin.

And no, Darin did two albums of material like that.  And made numerous Tonight Show appearances in which he insisted that, really, he was a folkie singer-songwriter, that all that "Bobby" stuff was forced on him by the suits.

I mean, when real genuine icons of late '60s rock appeared on This Is Tom Jones, they were subjected to the same kind of treatment, with contrived dialogue being written for them.  It was just the price of the exposure.

The Sultan Room in Bushwick. Does anyone have enough familiarity to guess when a headliner might go on? Doors open at 7pm, but I don’t need to stand with a warm beer for three hours. 

That place looks as if 3 or 4 acts a night. When I went to see a show nearby last week, doors at 7, 2 openers, the headliner did not come on until 10. I can't imagine much before that.
