Crosby, Stills & Nash
1111 Canal St.
The three have been together since Woodstock, but they refuse to be a nostalgia act, playing songs from throughout their careers together and on their own. That has often meant that they haven’t got to all the hits on the tour despite the generous show length. Reports from the tour say the trio’s trademark harmonies are largely in place, though Stephen Stills’ voice betrays some wear.
Phillip Manuel Swings The Beatles
626 Frenchmen St.
Tracks from The Flaming Lips’ very psychedelic remake of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” are starting to trickle out on the Internet. That album’s due out Oct. 28, and on Sept. 10 “The Beatles in Mono” box set will re-release remastered versions the band’s first nine albums and “Magical Mystery Tour” on vinyl and in mono as they were first heard. With The Fab Four in the atmosphere, it’s appropriate that jazz singer Phillip Manuel revisits their songbook as he did at Jazz Fest this year.
Bold Square Music
at Champions Square
1 Lasalle St.
If Jimmy Buffet begat Kenny Chesney then Kenny Chesney begat Jake Owen, who brings the country sounds of his Days of Gold tour to town with songs of good times, great friends, young love and easy living. These could be anthems for countless dudes living the dream along the Gulf Coast and plenty who wish they were. Guests Parmalee and the Cadillac Three will open.
