This goes beyond a mere concert recommendation since it is worth plane tickets: Little Steven's International Underground Garage Festival, Saturday, August 14, Randall's Island, New York
Holy crap! What a vast amount of talent, all appearing on one day, and
for only $20 in advance.
Here's the list of who is confirmed to appear so, with more still
possible: Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The New York Dolls, The Pretty
Things, Bo Diddley, The Raveonettes, The Mooney Suzuki, The Romantics,
The Electric Prunes, The Chesterfield Kings, The Fuzztones, The Cynics,
The Stems, The Chains, The Singles, The Contrast, The Woggles, The Boss
Martians, The High Dials, The Forty-Fives, The Shazam, The Cocktail
Slippers, The Star Spangles, The Charms, and the Flaming Sideburns.
Yes, you read it right. The New York Dolls are back together (based in
encouragement from longtime fanboy Morrissey), but that's just one of
many, many lures for a day featuring several decades worth of great
garage rock. Looks like there are enough acts to fill two stages, so
the only hard part will be deciding who to see when.
