Today and Tonight: Something for Everybody

Choices Large

A great weekend for music continues today, starting in the late afternoon.  Over in Williamsburg, The Demolition String Band will play several sets starting at 4pm and continuing through 7pm at Skinny Dennis.  Led by Elena Skye and Boo Reiners, the band will play alt country, Americana and rock.

If you’re looking something very different than that, why not check out the Nevermind Orchestra at The Way Station.  You’ll hear the songs of Nirvana played by a brass band.  Things will get going at this Prospect Heights outpost at 6pm.

Meanwhile, over on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Lincoln Center Out of Doors wraps up its run tonight by presenting Lyle Lovett and his Large Band.  Lyle’s musical style really can’t be pigeon-holed, but you’ll find blues, bluegrass, folk and rock well blended in his songs.  The start time is 7pm, but I suggest that you get there as early as you can to get a seat as it will be crowded.  But if you can’t get to Damrosch Park, then you can stream the show here.

Finally, it’s another Radigan Roundup Sunday over in Park Slope at The 12th Stree Bar and Grill.  Joining Terry Radigan tonight will be Pete LanctotAlex Battles, Matt KeatingAndy Mac, Steve Mayone and Rony Corcos.  As usual, the show gets started at 7:30pm.
