To quote Meat Loaf, two out of three ain’t bad. There are three shows tonight and seeing two of them is easy. I suppose you can even make all three by grabbing a cab from The Rockwood to The Bitter End. Here’s the scoop:
When I saw Jessi Mechanic last year with her old band, she rocked, with a bit of a New Wave feel. So she’s perfect to start out the night. She’ll hit the stage at the original The Rockwood Music Hall at 7pm.
Moving a bit to the north, you’ll find Jeff Litman. Tonight at 8pm, Jeff will bring his power pop and rock to The Bitter End. At this show, Jeff will be playing as a duo with Joseph Brent on mandolin.
Finally, back at The Rockwood, but this time at Rockwood Stage 2, you’ll be able to see the premiere performance of Interrobang. This new group consists of Zach Jones, Chris Kuffner and Martin Rivas. They will (a) definitely rock, and (b) be joined by Secret Someones on vocals (since Zach is a member of both bands, that means Bess Rogers, Lelia Broussard and Hannah Winker). This show will get going at 10:30pm.
