Rodriguez, the missing-then-found star of the hit documentary Searching for Sugar Man, opened his August 31st show at New York’s Highline Ballroom – his first major local concert since the film’s release in July – with a pair of curveballs: covers of the Flamingos’ 1959 doo-wop classic “I Only Have Eyes for You” and a 1967 single, “Dead End Street,” by R&B singer Lou Rawls. Dressed in total black, including a fedora with a brim so wide it hid much of his face for most of the night, Rodriguez played both oldies as if he was still soundchecking: settling into the room, measuring the curiosity and patience of his audience.
