Nick Lowe's Quality Rock & Roll Revue starring Los Straitjackets

  • Birchmere 3701 Mount Vernon Avenue Alexandria, VA, 22305 United States (map)

Get ready for a reverent night of rock ’n’ roll with British music legend Nick Lowe. Lowe, who rose to fame in the late ’70s with his Top 40 single “Cruel to Be Kind,” is a venerated songwriter and producer of classic albums by Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, and The Pretenders. Tonight, Lowe’s latest musical persona—the mesmerizing, silver-haired pop poet who’s been holding audiences rapt across the world—joins forces with Nashville-based, luchador-masked surf rockers Los Straitjackets. Hailed for its fantastic live show, Brooklyn band Cut Worms evokes The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, and early Beatles harmonies in a not-to-be-missed opening set.
