Monday, 3/17:

Steve Ross
7:00 p.m., $40
Is he our best Cole Porter interpreter? You betcha. Ross has been singing the foremost songwriting sophisticate's phenomenal output for some time now, and the result is still as fresh and tangy as the day the Waldorf Towers resident penned them. This show's dubbed "Ridin' High: Cole Porter on Broadway," and that means many of the ditties Ethel Merman introduced and, if we're lucky, the magnificent "Begin the Beguine" that June Knight sang first in Jubilee. Expect the Merman items to be belted by truly special guest Klea Blackhurst. -- By David Finkle

Tuesday, 3/18:

Rosanne Cash
Town Hall
8:00 p.m., $35-$75
After a three decades of wrestling with the music industry to be recognized as a legit songwriter instead of just as Johnny's daughter, Rosanne Cash has traveled a long hard road from California to Arkansas to Nashville to New York (where she now resides) to tell us her stories. Her most recent release, The River & the Thread explores that road, sometimes literally, and is frosting on the cake after four supreme album reissues in 2005 and an acclaimed memoir, Composed, in 2010. Fans of the Cash clan would thus be wise to catch her on this current supporting tour, as she's clearly forged her way to a career sweet spot. -- By Erin Manning

The Allman Brothers Band
Beacon Theatre
Monday & Tuesday, 8:00 p.m. daily, sold out
The Brothers don't always play in New York, but when they do, they play at the Beacon. This year marks the band's 45th anniversary, and their 25th anniversary residency at the 2,800-seat venue, totaling 222 utterly unique, mind-bending midnight rides to the brink of Southern rock, featuring eclectic surprise guests from Clapton to Donald Fagen. With an old-school psychedelic light show, endless jams on "Whipping Post," "Soulshine," or "Melissa," and, well, Gregg Allman, there's a reason these shows fetch upwards of $400 a ticket. As per usual, the 14-night run has already sold out, but scalpers are easy to find outside the venue. -- By Aidan Levy
