"This is like one gigantic Main Point in here," said Jackson Browne last night, midway through his first of two nights at the Mann Music Center. It was at that long-defunct Main Line club that Browne got his first taste of fame. "Philadelphia," he had mentioned earlier, "is the first place I saw a line around the block to buy tickets for my show. " A lot has changed since the early 70s. For one thing, Browne became famous for songs that defined yuppie angst before the y-word had even been coined.

Jackson Browne established his reputation during the early 1970s, when the singer-songwriter boom was in full swing. As an introspective post-folkie not averse to plugging in an electric guitar, Browne scored a hit single early on with the easygoing rocker "Doctor My Eyes" and became an FM radio favorite with melodic confessionals like "Here Come Those Tears Again," "Fountain of Sorrow" and "For Everyman. " Much as he strove to portray himself as one, however, Browne was never an Everyman.

Three years after Joni Mitchell apparently dissed him in the song "Not to Blame," Jackson Browne is extracting his revenge by branding Mitchell "very embittered" for not getting her due as a musical innovator and a "violent" woman who physically attacked him twice. "She's not really well," says Browne in a Dallas Morning News interview. ". . . She has had deep fallings-out with many people in her life. . . . She's not a happy person, and what she said in that song is absolutely, 100 percent wrong.

Jackson Browne returned to the concert circuit for the first time since 1985 last night at the Tower Theater, and almost instantly reaffirmed his place as one of rock's premier singer-songwriters. Beginning with the biting and muscular "Lawyers in Love," Browne used humor, poignantly detailed scene-sketches and acidic insight to communicate specific messages, many related to human rights and U.S. involvement in Central America. The concert, part of a 19-city tour to benefit the activist law and policy organization known as the Christic Institute, surveyed Browne's familiar material - and showcased a number of songs from an album Browne plans to release next year.

Jackson Browne knows what he's in for. Among the love songs on his new album I'm Alive, to be released Tuesday, is an intriguing little number about a desperate man who vows he'll do anything to bring back the woman he loves. No, he says, when delicate inquiries are made: "I'll Do Anything" is only glancingly related to his personal life. But tabloid readers may think differently. In one of the more publicized star incidents of 1992, Browne and his longtime girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah, broke up in a hailstorm of accusations and, some say, physical blows.

In the past I've sometimes feared that too much success had spoiled Jackson Browne, especially as a live performer. When he played the Mann Music Center three summers ago, Browne faced an overly zealous audience that only knew his rock hits. They were strangers to Browne's lovely, soul-searching ballads - the contemporary folk and folk-rock that first won him acclaim 20 years ago in coffeehouses like Bryn Mawr's late, lamented Main Point. Browne's need to pontificate (between songs)

21st Annual Neighborhood to Neighborhood Festival Best known to West Philadelphians as the N2N Fest, this free annual all-day block party starts off holy and ends on a hot and sexy note or two. Hosted by State Sen. Anthony H. Williams (rumor has it he's especially good at making elaborate balloon animals for children), the day starts with a prayerful Gospel Hour starring the Abundant Life Youth Choir, Calvary Baptist Church Ensemble, and Kevin Jarido & Nu Virtu. Amen to that. It continues with carnival rides and balloons for kids, karaoke for adults, and Philly native singer Tamika Patton, the Urban Guerilla Orchestra, and the Universal Dance & Drum Ensemble for all. By dusk, the noise heats up. As the sun goes down, soul-hop chanteuse Chrisette Michele appears with songs from I Am and Epiphany.

I assume both of you watched top-ranked Alabama methodically defeat Penn State last Saturday. My question is, did they look like a No. 1 team to you? The Crimson Tide didn't look dominant but are there any other teams out there - Ohio State, Boise State, Oregon, Temple - that have looked better and are more deserving of No. 1? Oklahoma is the best team in country. The Sooners embarrassed Florida State. I put Michigan in the top five. Florida made a statement, too, but the Gators were catching a South Florida team that was exhausted coming off that tougher-than-expected opener against Stony Brook.

Jackson Browne Jackson Browne is a true folk-rock road warrior. He spent much of 2015 crisscrossing the country with his six-member backing band, recently plowing through 55 U.S. tour dates in less than four months. After a month off, Browne hits the road again this week. But this time out, he's taking things down a few notches, accompanied only by his guitar and piano for a monthlong solo acoustic tour that kicks off Saturday in Atlantic City. The 67-year-old singer-songwriter will undoubtedly play some songs from his latest album, the well-received Standing in the Breach CD (his 14th, in case anyone's still counting)

"HOW do you get to the Academy of Music?" asked the shaggy-haired musician toting an electric guitar. "You can't," was the unfunny reply we ruefully used to share. "Rock's not allowed in our hallowed hall. " That's how it was for decades. But the times, as Bob Dylan sang, are finally a-changin'. Dylan himself returns to the Academy of Music for the first time since 1966 for a series of three electric shows Nov. 21 to 23. Fellow "classic rockers" Neil Young and Jackson Browne play the gorgeous concert hall even sooner: baleful-voiced Young for two nights of career reflections on Oct. 8 and 9; then Browne, running on premium (and all eight cylinders)

A GINGER-HAIRED, scruffy and increasingly tattooed "misfit" from Britain, Ed Sheeran plays guitar, beatboxes and, occasionally, fiddles. He also writes and winsomely sings hip-hop-inflected folk confessionals that enthrall young'uns - and their parents, too. And while clearly connected to the keep-it-real troubadour continuum that stretches, as he said, from "Bob Dylan and Van Morrison to Damien Rice and Jason Mraz," there's never been a phenomenon quite...

But Sara Watkins also has proven a formidable solo act in the five years since Nickel Creek split up. Her self-titled 2009 solo debut - produced by former Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones - proved she could go it alone with ease.
