City Planner: Monday 12/11

Sean Lennon @ First Avenue

class=img_thumbleft>From today's A-List : " Friendly Fire , the new sophomore disc from John Lennon's youngest son, should prove to those who doubted the twentysomething charms of his 1998 debut that Sean inherited more than his dad's fortune. A self-consciously mature step away from the debut's haphazard salad-bowl vibe, Friendly Fire shows off Lennon's songwriting chops with dreamy folk-pop tunes that utilize plenty of studio-nerd texture. But they're really about handsome melodies and heartfelt words; the CD feels timeless and familiar in a way any Beatles fan can recognize. Opener Jim Noir, from the north of England, plays homemade orchestral pop without the aid of an actual orchestra."
