Kinky plays Brooklyn Bowl May 3.

EVIDENTLY CLARKETOWN

English punk poet John Cooper Clarke has been spewing frank, irreverent verse since the late ’70s. One of his best-known rants (“Evidently Chickentown”) even popped up on an episode of The Sopranos. The alt-poet laureate plays Vinyl on April 30 ($20-$30).

MAKE IT KINKY

Don’t let your rusty high school Spanish keep you from seeing Kinky at Brooklyn Bowl on May 3 ($25). The lyrics aren’t limited to Spanish, and their music is all over the map: funk, rock, techno. Kinky leaves you wanting “Más” y más. ¿Comprende?

ON SALE NOW

Todd Rundgren is taking a break from Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band and hitting the road in support of his solo album, Global. The tour includes a DJ and some backup singers, but multi-instrumentalist Rundgren will play most of the music himself. He hits Vinyl on May 30 ($30-$45).
