As our NYE hangover dissipates, here are three shows we were sure would be sold out, but not so. Get on it.
Broken Social Scene at Terminal 5 on January 18; $40
The Canadians are back! We can only hope for a cameo by Feist, who joined the collective onstage at Toronto’s Sound Academy in December to perform her song I Feel It All. But if not, we’ll live. Tickets available at Ticketmaster.com.
The Decemberists at Beacon Theatre, January 24, 25, 26; $39.50
First they had to add a second show when the initial date sold out in 15 minutes, then they rounded it out with a third when January 25 and 26 sold out. Nice! The January 24 show still has tickets available at Ticketmaster.com. Wye Oak opens all three.
Robert Plant and Band of Joy at the Beacon Theatre, January 29 and 30; from $55
We love that hard-rocker Robert Plant is still riding the rootsy-Americana wave that nabbed him awards in his collaboration with Alison Krauss. The amazing Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller are part of his current band/project Band of Joy; throw in the soul-stirring North Mississippi Allstars at this gig and you have an unbeatable night. Tickets available at thegarden.com.
