San Francisco-based Adult Alternative megastars Train’s latest release Bulletproof Picasso (2014, Columbia) is a big old serving of larger-than-life, anthemic production rock shot all the way to the moon by singer Pat Monahan’s bulletproof pipes. The record careens all over the genres, from the nu-folk single “Angel in Blue Jeans” to the soul power ballad of “Give It All” and the jumpy neo-New Wave of “Wonder What You’re Doing for the Rest of Your Life,” but never sounds anything less than huge and sparkly.
Train visits the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Friday, June 26. Along for the ride are genremates the Fray and Matt Nathanson. Reserved tickets cost $48.50, $62.50, $79 and $107, and $32 for Lawn general admission. Tickets are available at https://www.bethelwoodscenter.org, via TicketMaster or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
