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.
