A classic (and classy) consummate entertainer, Tony Bennett is still going strong at 91. He’s pretty much the only remaining major performer from that whole American Standards era, and if you’ve never seen him (or if it’s been a while), you’re advised to attend his Tuesday show at Symphony Hall. And dress appropriately – has Bennett ever been seen wearing a T-shirt? He’s so unhip he’s hipper than you could ever hope to be. And when he leaves us, it’s going to be as if the last authentic remnants of a lost art form have left with him.
Nearly a year after a leukemia scare forced Dan Baird to take time off from touring, he’s back with Homemade Sin and returning to his old Atlanta rompin’ grounds (well, Decatur, technically) for a rave-up at Eddie’s Attic on Friday, July 13th. “I just wanted to make everybody aware that things are okay now,” he assures fans in a video posted on the band’s website. “So, quit worryin’ and come out and see us! It’s more fun.” Good to hear!
