Richard Barone 

Nightlife Highlights

May 18. The leader of 1980s Hoboken, New Jersey, indie stalwarts the Bongos, Richard Barone is truly a jack-of-all-trades. The singer, guitarist, and songwriter, who here visits Valentine's, is also the author of the 2007 memoir Frontman: Surviving the Rock Star Myth, as well as a professor at New York University's Clive Davis School of Recorded Music. Barone's most recent studio album, Glow, was produced by the legendary Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T. Rex), and of late he's collaborated with the likes of Pete Seeger, Donovan, and Lou Reed. A deluxe live CD/DVD set was recently released to commemorate his acclaimed 1987 solo album, Cool Blue Halo. With Blue Factory. (Peter Case croons May 10; the Spampinato Brothers bring it May 17.). 9pm. $9. Albany.
