With tomorrow being Christmas Eve, there’s a two night break in the music coming. But tonight there are two shows, both with casts of thousands (OK, dozens) before that break.
Over at The Highline Ballroom, The Jewbadours play another in a series of “farewell” performances knows as The Last Schmaltz. The Jewbadors have stated their mission: “bring the hits and lesser-known classics of the late ’70s and early ’80s back to the masses. Their catalog is a virtual A to Z of the Billboard charts from three and half decades past: Ambrosia to Xanadu.” Musicians tonight will include Ari Hest, Julian Velard, Toby Lightman, Jay Jay French, Rosi Golan, Allie Moss, Chrissi Poland, Amanda Brown, Colin Smith, Wes Hutchinson and Jamie McClean. Doors open here at 6pm with the show at 8pm.
If your tastes are more rock and new wave, then hit The Bowery Electric‘s Exile on The Bowery Holiday Party. It includes Bakersfield Breakers, Certain General, Charlie Roth, Deborah Frost, Deer France, Jahn Xavier, James Wynbrandt, Jana Peri, The Rousers, Tom Wynbrandt, Tuff Darts, Walter Lure and Walter Steding. Things get going at 7pm or so.
Exile on The Bowery Holiday Party, The Bowery Electric, 327 Bowery between 2nd and 3rd Streets (6 Train to Bleecker Street or Astor Place, F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 2nd Avenue exit), doors 7pm
