Buster Poindexter aka David Johansen Takes the Carlyle, 10/31
Buster Poindexter, David Johansen, Carlyle
As a founding member of the New York Dolls and in a prolific solo career, David Johansen has been a seminal force in rock and roll, influencing countless singers and bands to this day. Equally rare is Johansen's having created an alter ego, with a different name and style, and with his own extraordinary achievements: Buster Poindexter, an elegant crooner and R&B balladeer. His late 80s single "Hot Hot Hot" made him a staple on radio charts, MTV and the NYC club scene. For the first time, in a Halloween night concert, Poindexter will play the legendary Café Carlyle. The evening marks the first time the hallowed venue has presented a rock icon.
The performance will begin at 10:45pm. Doors open at 10:30pm. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at www.ticketweb.com or 866-468-7619. Café Carlyle is located in The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel (35 East 76th Street, at Madison Avenue).
