August 15 Jimmy Castor:Wow, guess he's touring on the back of RCA's new 16 Slabs of Funk comp, which is damn near as definitive as Rhino's Everything Man from seven years back. Either way, dig it: Mr. Castor, who released a gigantic shitload of incomparably beatwise and heavy-as-in-metal and Latin-as-in-boogaloo afro-disco albums about troglodytes and Big Bertha Butt and Leroy's creature-from-black-lagoon father way way back in the try-it-you'll-like-it era (back between taking over for Frankie Lymon in the Teenagers and being sampled by everybody from Kurtis Blow to Prodigy), could be George Clinton if George weren't such a damn art dweeb.

Various venues, 528-2733, www.hudsonriverfestival.com
June 12 Randy Newman, the Plaza:Fresh from his Oscar triumph, the poor nephew of Lionel and Emil doesn't want our pity. Just our money as he exploits his fluke. What he'll provide in return are jokes no less funny for their sour taste and more good songs than he can sing before his voice gives out—sure to be leavened by a few bad ones, said Oscar winner among them. Eat your heart out, Sir Paul. And give Sting the gristle. (Christgau)

JONES BEACH THEATER

1000 Ocean Parkway, Long Island, 516-221-1000
May 30 "Pop Disaster Tour: Blink 182+Green Day":What better way to kick off summer than with thousands of teenagers crammed into the Garden, drinking soda, making penis jokes, and listening to the best mainstream pop-punk of the past 10 years? Be prepared to have the school-year blahs blasted out of ya, as both headliners have been known to get naked and light stuff on fire. Let the cool kids go to the Weezer and Get Up Kids shows; I'm sticking with the teenybop punkers. We're gonna have way more fun. (Phillips)
