Tonight: Jahn Xavier at Harley Davidson and Lydia Loveless at Webster Hall

Here are two shows, one early, one later, that I can hardily recommend.

Jahn Xavier

The early show starts at 6:30pm at the Manhattan location of Harley Davidson (yes, the motorcycle folks) and it features Jahn Xavier. This is a solo acoustic  show for Jahn.  Jahn’s music is intelligent, rocking and soulful and the record that he made with his band, The Bowerytones, Yes, You, made the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Albums of 2013 list.

Lydia Loveless

Later, at 9pm at Webster Hall, Lydia Loveless is back in town from her native Ohio.  Lydia’s music is an amalgam of rock, Americana, alt country with some punk thrown into the mix as well.  Lydia was one of my highlights at SXSW a few years back.  Lydia’s record released earlier this year, Somewhere Else, is a very strong contender for best record of 2014.  You’ll find Lydia at Webster Hall, where she’s opening for The Old 97s.

Jahn Xavier, Harley Davidson of NYC, 374 Broadway between White and Franklin Streets (J, N, Q, R or 6 Trains to Canal Street), 6:30pm, Free

Lydia Loveless (opening for The Old 97s), Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues (N, Q, 4, 5 or 6 Trains to 14th Street or L Train to 3rd Avenue), 9pm, $25

    Off the topic, however, but I stumbled upon this amazing archive a few hours ago and have been trolling memory lane ever since. Just thought I’d share it with you. http://www.nyradioarchive.com/index.html The WNEW memorabiia is too cool.
