There are few people that spend their entire careers moving from one pivotal and seminal musical group to another. David Johansen’s place in history as a performer is past mythical proportions at this point, from being the frontman of the New York Dolls to his reincarnation as lounge lizard Buster Poindexter, the common thread is his reputation for being one of the most impressive and captivating performers in music history.
City Winery which at this point is a vastly overlooked venue in the city (I saw Richard Hell perform there last year and I’ve never forgotten it) is hosting a monthly summer long residency with Buster Poindexter. Tickets range from $25 to $35 and I literally cannot think of a single better way to spend your Saturday night.
