Tonight, there’s a Lower East Side doubleheader on tap. It starts at the original stage of The Rockwood Music Hall tonight, at 9pm. There you’ll find Mieka Pauley playing her monthly Rockwood show. Mieka is an incisive writer, a powerful singer and a fine blues guitarist. Whether she is singing her own songs or playing a few choice covers, you’ll find yourself moved by Mieka’s performance. So take this opportunity to see her.
Once Mieka’s show has finished, walk seven blocks east on Houston Street to Attorney Street. I don’t think you’ll find any lawyers there, but what you will find on that corner is the Parkside Lounge. There, in the back room, starting at 11pm, you’ll find Li’l Mo, Drina Seay and Homeboy Steve who will play and sing together as Candy and Women. There will be loads of Americana, alt country, country and 60s pop, with lovely harmonies, this time around.
