Nick Lowe’s Quality Rock and Roll Revue @ The Englert Theatre

September 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$35 – $55

Starting with 1995′s ‘The Impossible Bird’ through to 2011′s ‘The Old Magic,’ Nick has turned out a fantastic string of albums, each recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy. Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as “elegant and nearly devastating.”

His new 4 song EP “Tokyo Bay” features Los Straitjackets as his backing band. Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental, and have taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the “Jackets” have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, with their most recent album, “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace Love & Los Straitjackets” consisting of instrumental covers of Nick Lowe Songs
