KILLING US SOFTLY
Lauryn Hill sang the hell out of “Feeling Good,” one of the six Nina Simone songs she covered on the recent Nina Revisited tribute album. Hill, like Simone, is a passionate performer—often late, but worth the wait. See Hill in action at Brooklyn Bowl on Sept. 18 ($55).
DANDO CAN DO
Singer Evan Dando remains the only constant in the Lemonheads lineup. Happily, he’s still serving up the same stuff you bought yesterday, if by “stuff’ you mean wistful songs such as “Confetti,” and if by “yesterday” you mean 1992. The band plays at the Sayers Club on Sept. 23 ($22).
ON SALE NOW
