Music Around Town

Crosby, Stills, and Nash

When: Sun., June 10 2012

More than four decades after fate and sparkling harmonies first brought Crosby, Stills, and Nash together, they're still at it, despite their often turbulent history. They were an immediate counterculture hit, but the highs of their success were frequently set back by inner-band squabbles and personal troubles. In a way, they're hippie relics who sing about a time long, long ago in America's history. But it's tough to argue with their legacies. All three guys are double Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees: In addition to CSN, they were key members of the Byrds (David Crosby), Buffalo Springfield (Stephen Stills), and the Hollies (Graham Nash). Later, as sobriety and age made CSN shows more consistent and the new millennium revealed a social unrest that eerily echoed the stuff they were singing about in the late '60s and early '70s, their music gained more value among younger generations. And they're still fighting: Crosby and Nash performed for the Occupy Wall Street protesters last year. Carry on, indeed. 8 p.m. Tickets: $40 - $145. – John Patrick Gatta
