THE MAIN AVETT
I love the wistful quality of the Avett Brothers’ folky bluegrass sound. There’s nothing these guys play that isn’t worth listening to over and over again, so check out their three-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl on August 29-31 ($59 per show, $177 for all three shows).
U.K. singer-songwriter David Gray made a splash stateside with “Sail Away” and “Babylon,” but it took the release of Mutineers in June for critics to agree that Gray had fully regained his creative spark. David Gray plays The Joint on August 30 ($40-$85).
ON SALE NOW
Why is “Mack the Knife” the only Psychedelic Furs song I own? Where is “Love My Way?” What happened to “Heaven” and “The Ghost in You?” I need to do something about that before Psychedelic Furs play the House of Blues with the Lemonheads on October 26 ($39.50).
