ROCK | Willie Nile 

New York City's Willie Nile played here last year as part of the Big Rib porkstavaganza. And though it wasn't a blues act exactly, the band didn't stray too far from the blue notes. Nile and his band were outstanding as they brought the sights and sounds of the Bowery to the people in the park as they gnawed meat off the bone. It was straight ahead and gritty rock 'n' roll chop and bop with the ragged energy and urban poetry of say, Lou Reed or Patti Smith. The band was brash and energetic in its black-clad romance. Here's another chance to catch him live. You really oughta see this cat.

Willie Nile plays Sunday, January 4, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $15-$20.; willienilecom.
