It’s Sunday, and tonight two long running Sunday night series go head to head with good shows. First up, in Park Slope, you’ll find tonight’s edition of The Radigan Roundup. This show is run by Terry Radigan at The 12th Street Bar and Grill. As usually, Terry will play a short set and is joined tonight by Jim Andralis, Tracy Smith, Roger Greenawalt, Deni Bonet, Hillary Bratton and Barry Reynolds. At the Roundup, the music is usually stripped down and things are loose and spontaneous. Things will get going tonight at 7:30pm, but getting to The 12th Street Bar and Grill early for a seat (the place is on the small size) is not a bad idea.
Here’s your other option. Her day jobs include painter, music teacher and chocolate maker. Her album, On the Moon, was one of my 10 best for 2009. And tonight, Monica Passin, better known as Li’l Mo, leads her band, The Monicats, through country, rockabilly, blues, 60s pop and whatever else she and they may play. And I’ll add that not only are Li’l Mo and The Monicats terrific musically, they are just plain fun to watch. I’m sure you’ll hear songs from the recent album from Li’l Mo and The Monicats, Whole Lotta Lovin’ and you’ll have the opportunity to pick up a copy as well. This happens at Tom Clark’s Treehouse at 2A in the East Village.
