“If I’m wanting to feel soothed, it’s probably Bill Evans. Robert Quine turned me on to him, and man, he really knew the great stuff.
I might play something that’s more new wavy, too, like the Nerves – something that’s more upbeat.
But there’s so many things I love. I could probably clean to the Beach Boys as well.”
Matthew Sweet pops into The Egg in Albany at 8pm on Friday (June 22), performing his classic 1991 alt-pop masterwork “Girlfriend” in its entirety, as well as other pop nuggets from his considerable discography. The like-minded A Fragile Tomorrow opens the show. Tix are $28.
