Address: The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th St. - 212-721-6500
Description: The deep voice and sardonic delivery bring to mind Johnny Cash or Kris Kristofferson, but it's the inventive lyrics that mark Bill Callahan as an original. Callahan recorded for years under the name Smog, perhaps as a need for anonymity and not as a reference to the impact that his music has on the listener. If that is what he wanted to reference, his previous identity would have been Poetry.
Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
