Here are the shows you should consider checking out this week in NYC.
Another event that sounds interesting Wednesday is The Black Diamond event at Joe's Pub. The music of Sarah Tracey has spawned a film noir, murder musical web series with five epiodes that will be screened. There will be live performance as well. I like this idea. It starts at 7:00.
The shows just keep on cranking as the week continues. Thursday night features our friends Blue & Gold plus the recently featured on the Dig Cold Blood Club at Mercury Lounge. Blue & Gold rocks it live and if Cold Blood Club is anything like their recent video, well, it's going to be a doozy. It's an 8:30 show and costs $10. Also on the bill is Stout Cortez.
This same night, Grand Resort completes their residency at Piano's. They play at 10:00, it's $8, and there are four other bands on the bill, including Suburban Living, who have appeared on this site in the past.
Notable electronic artist Jon Hopkins plays twice on Saturday. First, he'll be at the MOMA PS1 Warm Up Party, then later he'll be at Cameo Gallery. The latter show is a midnight party, you can get tickets here.
And finally, the Captured Tracks 5 Year Anniversary celebration takes place on Saturday and Sunday at the great new Bushwick venue The Well. The lineup is pretty amazing, get all the information here.
