I’ve been listening to New York Before the War, the new album from Jesse Malin over the past week or so. It’s quite good and I’m really looking forward to seeing both Jesse and his band and Steve Wynn and The Miracele 3 this Saturday at The Bowery Ballroom.
Here’s a sample of what will await us there: a live clip from an invitation only show at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 back in January. Jesse and the band play Oh Sheena from the new record. And yes, there are some familiar faces in the band: that’s Catherine Popper from Puss n Boots on bass and Michelle Casillas from Ursa Minor on keys. Thanks to Frank Robbins for capturing this moment.
