Nick Lowe is what they once called a “musician’s musician” — having made his mark as a producer with the likes of Elvis Costello, Graham Parker and The Damned.
But now, the affable rocker-next-door is in his second act, as a silver-haired, tenderhearted but sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, who will play a concert on Sunday, June 24, at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, located at 76 Main Street, alongside the energetic and eclectic group of masked guitar gods, Los Straitjackets, as part of Lowe’s “Quality Rock & Roll Revue” tour.
Starting with 1995’s ‘The Impossible Bird” through to 2011’s “The Old Magic,” Lowe has turned out a string of albums, each one devised in his West London home, and recorded with a core of musicians who possess the same veteran savvy.
“Lowe brings wit and understated excellence to every performance, leading Ben Ratliff of the New York Times to describe his live show as ‘elegant and nearly devastating,’” according to a press release.
The concert begins at 8 p.m., and tickets range from $51 to $71. For more information, please call (631) 288-1500 or visit whbpac.org.
