RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
I think I know what you need right now, and it’s not more cowbell. It’s an evening with New Orleans legends Aaron Neville and Dr. John. The pair perform at the Cannery on August 9 ($30-$70). You must hear Neville’s silky, soulful vocals and Dr. John’s funky, “voodoo”-influenced keyboards.
LOVE IS LIKE FOXYGEN
Don’t know Foxygen? You should. Last year’s We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic was one of my albums of the year, a generous helping of brilliant, lo-fi psychedelia. “No Destruction,” “San Francisco” and “Shuggie” are three reasons to see Foxygen at Brooklyn Bowl on August 12 ($13.20-$16.50).
ON SALE NOW
Remember the first time you heard “King of the Rodeo” by Kings of Leon and you couldn’t understand the lyrics but you liked the sound? Last year, the band released Mechanical Bull—their sixth studio album—and their tour brings them to Boulevard Brew Fest at the lot across from Luxor on September 27 ($59-$129).
