Hank Sinatra, Jesse Malin & the St. Marks Social, Richard Bacchus & the Luckiest Girls 

When: Sun., Jan. 16, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10
Since leaving underrated Bowery glam-punks D Generation at the close of the '90s, Jesse Malin has wandered the singer-songwriter landscape. He enlisted Ryan Adams to produce his debut, following his friend down the Americana byway. He dove into power pop, however, for 2007's Glitter in the Gutter, and that was a step in the right direction. Neither Malin's voice nor his songwriting is strong enough to stand out in the crowded roots-rock neighborhood, but he knows how to craft a hook. His ragged vocal swagger shines in front of a band, too. Those qualities make his latest, Love It to Life, his best solo effort. Probably because it was written collaboratively with his band, the St. Marks Social, it's tauter and grimier, harking back a bit to D Generation by way of Springsteen. Opening the 9:30 p.m. show is former D Generation guitarist Richard Bacchus with his band the Luckiest Girls; Hank Sinatra plays last on the bill. —Chris Parker
