There are four terrific shows on tap tonight. I know that if it were humanly possible, I would be at all of them. It’s not, though. But know that whichever one you pick, you are in for a real treat.
The Radigan Roundup is run by Terry Radigan on Sundays at Park Slope’s 12th Street Bar and Grill. As usually, Terry will play a short set and is joined tonight by Anna Kaye and Irakli Gabriel, Freddie Stevenson, James Maddock, and Aaron Lee Tasjan. At the Roundup, the music is usually stripped down and things are loose and spontaneous. Things will get going tonight at 7:30pm and run through 10:30pm.
Over on the Lower East Side, Aly Tadros will be playing The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 at 8pm. Aly plays Americana, folk rock and folk. Aly is originally from Texas, and spent some time in Austin before deciding to move here and make New York City her home. Although her mother was from Texas, her dad was from Egypt, which adds some Middle Eastern influences to her music as well. Aly has just finished recorded a new record, and I’m sure some of those songs will make an appearance tonight.
Still on the Lower East Side, just a few blocks further east, you’ll find tonight’s show at The Treehouse at 2A. Tonight’s show there will feature the new band Jellycake, which features Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin, Eddie Kunz and Eric Seftel playing rock and blues. Once Jellycake finishes, the evening will continue with Dina Regine. Dina will be playing stripped down versions of her mid-60s influenced songs from her wonderful album Right On, All Right, and a bunch of new songs as well.
Still on the Lower East Side, you’ll find a celebration of the songs of Randy Newman at The 11th Street Bar. Leslie Mendelson, Jon Graboff, Keith Christopher and Tony Leone will play those songs beginning at 9pm.
