It’s another one of those nights where there are two good shows playing opposite each other in totally different parts of the city. So You’ll have to choose between Milton and Teddy Thompson, but that’s a great dilemma to have.
The music of Milton (the name of the band as well as its leader) is a combination of Americana, country, and folk-rock. During the years, Milton has played a four week residency at The Living Room every February. With the club closed last year, that did not happen. But now that The Living Room has reopened in Williamsburg, that four night stand has resumed, and you’ll find Milton there tonight and next Wednesday at 9pm.
Teddy Thompson plays NYC often, but usually as a part of the early rock and rockabilly trio Poundcake. Lately, Teddy has been playing a series of shows with the rest of the Thompson family. But tonight, Teddy brings his music front and center to the stage of The Rockwood Music Hall for the first show of a four week Wednesday residency there. I haven’t heard Teddy play his own stuff in a while and I don’t know what he has up his sleeve for us, but he is such a gifted musician that I have absolutely no doubt that it will be worthwhile.
Teddy Thompson, Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)
