“Elegant and nearly devastating.”– New York Times on Lowe’s performance at Lincoln Center Out of Doors 2014
“Live is best way to hear this stuff...exhilaration and fury.”– Pitchfork on Los Straitjackets
Get ready for a reverent night of rock ’n’ roll with British music legend Nick Lowe. Lowe, who rose to fame in the late ’70s with his Top 40 single “Cruel to Be Kind,” is a venerated songwriter and producer of classic albums by Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, and The Pretenders. Tonight, Lowe’s latest musical persona—the mesmerizing, silver-haired performer-poet who’s been holding audiences rapt across the world—joins forces with Nashville-based, luchador-masked surf rockers Los Straitjackets.
