Nick Lowe Solo Acoustic Show. Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 8 PM, Bijou Theater

Nick Lowe has made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of at least three songs you know by heart, short-lived career as a pop star, and a lengthy term as a musicians’ musician. But in his current ‘second act’ as a silver-haired, tender-hearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, he has no equal.

Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live acoustic show as “elegant and nearly devastating.”  Ticket information can be found here.
