Neil Diamond 

When: Fri., April 28, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $62 and up.
Let’s say Lauryn Hill doesn’t show up. Here’s a very different option just down the street. Don’t laugh. For every overblown schmaltzy moment in Mr. Diamond’s discography, there’s a “Cherry Cherry.” For every overwritten dramatic narrative, there’s a little Leonard Cohen song just dying to get out. Urge Overkill killed their take on Neil’s “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Now” in Pulp Fiction. Look: Your mama and grandmama loved him. Schmaltz? Yes. But brilliant schmaltz.
