Last Wednesday, I made sure to follow a strict caffeine regimen in order stay awake and catch Har Mar Superstar rock (Le) Poisson Rouge at midnight. I ended up sleeping it off for almost the whole next day but holy crap it was worth it. Sean "Har Mar" Tillman and crew (featuring #EDAS favorite, Denver Dalley) brought an old fashioned RnB show, the likes of which I haven't seen since I caught Little Anthony and the Imperials Shimmy, Shimmied their Ko-Ko Bops years ago at BAM. You may have already read our review of Bye Bye 17, which is certainly in the running for 2013 Album of the Year, but this man's stage-show is a whole other ballgame. I would categorize his act as part Marvin Gaye, part pro-wrestling villian's manager.
If you missed this amazing show, don't beat yourself up. New Yorkers get another chance tonight when Har Mar Superstar is the musical guest for my absolute favorite comedy show, The Moon. Join hosts Nat and Bob at Union Pool as they welcome funnymen Myq Kaplan and Mark Normand as well as the incomparable Cocoon Central Dance Team for their mind-blowing 79th Show. Tickets are only 5 measly bucks and the show starts tonight (May 21) at 8:00 PM. If you are going to miss this show as well, then I heck, you might as well start beating yourself up, hard.

As a final note, I must say that this was the first time that I can remember ever being disappointed that a grown man did not strip down to his underpants. Looks like Har Mar may be growing up. There is a realistic chance that the next time you hear from him, he will be one of the top adult contemporary artists this side of Carnegie Hall. Check the pictures below to see him in
