Al Riggs, Second Husband
Ruby Deluxe, Raleigh
al Riggs has (so far) put out three of my favorite albums of 2016; it's rare for someone to be both so prolific and so utterly talented. On record his arrangements are often complicated, but even in a solo setting, the songs carry all the weight that needs to be carried.

Rick Springfield, Night Ranger, The Romantics
Raleigh Amphitheater, Raleigh
Weren't these three all on different sides of the great rock/pop wars of the 80s? Desperate times make for strange bedfellows, I guess -- which might also explain what Rick Springfield was doing playing a fundraiser/party at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. And he's Australian!
