Would you would prefer to be in Brooklyn or Manhattan or see a show early or late? Any way you slice it, there are a number of shows out there tonight that I can recommend.
Mya Byrne gets things started tonight at 7pm at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on the Lower East Side. Mya will be release her brand new CD, As I Am. She will be backed by an all-star band consisting of Chris Kelly, Andy Mac, Scott Stein, Craig Greenberg, and Mark Marshall. If you want to stay on the Lower East Side after Mya finishes, stick around for the indie pop of Elizabeth and The Catapult. E & The C will be playing a duo show at the subterranean cozy and seated Rockwood Stage 3 at 10pm.
Over in Williamsburg, Julia Haltigan brings her band at Union Pool. Julia’s music draws on rock, r&b, latin rhythms, 40s and 50s pop and more. The show will get going at 8pm with Your Ex-Girlfriends and Zephaniah and the 18 Wheelers opening.
A bit further up Metropolitan Avenue, you’ll find North of Amarillo playing their usual Wednesday night gig at Skinny Dennis. Inspired by the music of Emmylou Harris, North of Amarillo pays tribute to her classic songs and arrangements along with a mix of originals and other country favorites.
And just a few doors north from Skinny Dennis, you’ll find the latest incarnation of The Living Room. At 11pm, Karlie Bruce will play a duo show there. Karlie promises a mix of her old tunes and some new ones as well.
