Wednesday's must-see concerts
Wed Jul 13 2011
James Blake at Webster Hall
U.K. 22-year-old James Blake's hotly debated self-titled debut defies genre classification, but that hardly matters at his floorboard-rattling live shows. Check out our interview with Blake here.
Crooked Still at Rockwood Music Hall
Crooked Still has been reinventing bluegrass, and tonight the band shares songs from a strong recent album, Some Strange Country.
A Perfect Circle at Beacon Theatre
Far less ambitious (not to mention less interesting) than Tool, alt-rock holdouts A Perfect Circle are nevertheless worthy of your attention.
Weimar New York at Cooper Square Hotel
Earl Dax helps keep the Joe's Pub spirit alive in exile with a new edition of his Weimar New York series.
Tim Berne, Michael Formanek and Ches Smith + Joe McPhee and Ingebrigt Haker Flaten at the Stone
Two of the most incisive and imaginative saxophonists in contemporary jazz play the Stone tonight, each in superlative company.
