Neil Diamond All-Stars, Infidels 

When: Fri., Nov. 18, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10

Before there was a Boss, there was a Diamond, singing with similarly overwrought sentimentality (if less poetry) about solitary men, blue jean-clad lovers, red wine and girls approaching womanhood. Neil Diamond's ornate Brill Building pop shines with a Rockwell-like inner light that befits the son of immigrants singing from the heart of American promise. This crew of talented locals has helped reclaim Diamond from his kitsch corner and revitalize his classic pop with affectless energy, led by appropriately named (and besotted) frontman Jack Whitebread. Over the years, their work has gained a certain well-earned reverence for the overwhelming, fun-loving good-time spirit. —Chris Parker
