New York City’s secret weapon is actually a quite well-known and regarded national commodity with plenty of claims to immortality. He sang with Springsteen. Bono toasted him. Townshend and Lou Reed are among his vocal admirers. A verbal dynamo and complex character in the tradition of Zimmerman, Willie Nile has released no fewer than 11 records. Still, he is NYC’s secret weapon – maybe because that’s just a cool thing to be.
Willie Nile returns to the Falcon on Friday, September 29 at 8 p.m. Per usual, there is no cover charge at the Falcon. but generous donation is encouraged in strong language. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com.
