Arto Lindsay Pages Through His 'Encyclopedia' on N.Y. Return: Concert Review

Musically restless guitarist and songwriter Arto Lindsay has been elusive in the years since a string of surprisingly seductive Brazil-based solo LPs ended with 2004's Salt. He did take over Times Square for an instant in 2009, mounting a one-night "parade" whose Ministry of Silly Walks-like choreography left tourists beaming with "only in New York" amusement.

De La Soul Celebrates a Quarter-Century of Hip-Hop: Concert Review

It may have been an event honoring the 25th anniversary of 3 Feet High and Rising, but De La Soul's show at Irving Plaza Tuesday was the farthest thing from one of those "play the album" nostalgia gigs that have become so common. Instead, the 70-minute set felt like a birthday party to which so many friends and relatives showed up that it had to be moved out of the backyard and into a club, with paying fans made honorary members of the family.
