Joe Jackson released a new record called Rain in January of this year and I think it was pretty well received by all accounts. Way back in April he played shows at the Town Hall and the Apollo Theatre and on November 7th he’s playing another one with Thea Gilmore at the (much smaller?) Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center. Tickets to that show are on sale right now (despite what the Bowery Presents website says).
Oh yeah, edgy NYC comedian Sara Schaefer made a video to try and convince Joe Jackson to move back to New York, you can watch that here.
