Albert Hammond Jr – 11/4 – Webster Hall (New York, NY)

Albert Hammond Jr Webster HallAs the George Harrison to Julian Casablancas’ Lennon/McCartney, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. doesn’t get nearly as much credit as he deserved. Underneath that suave New York image is a crack songwriter with just as much of a fondness for Sixties pop as he does for Seventies New York punk. His latest solo release, AHJ, is a modestly-produced EP with earworm tunes that you find yourself humming long after the songs are over. Hammond’s live shows aren’t nearly as short as AHJ, but they’re just as sweet. Seeing him at Webster Hall’s Marlin Room-a far cry from the arenas that Hammond’s other band is used to playing-is sure to be a delight.
