Paul Simon to Play Webster Hall
Paul Simon reportedly drew approximately 600,000 fans to a free show in Central Park in 1991. On June 6, Simon will perform in a far smaller venue when he takes the stage at New York’s 1,000-person Webster Hall. The singer/songwriter has played a handful of club shows in support of his new solo album So Beautiful or So What, which was released last month. His Webster Hall appearance will be presented by the indie blog BrooklynVegan. Vampire Weekend, Grizzly Bear and several other indie buzz bands have cited Simon as a primary influence in recent years. Simon will perform at Gulf Shores, AL’s Hangout festival this weekend.
