And finally, if you’re not doing anything tonight, you can head to Noble Street, get a drink, eat Latkes and listen to some live Chanukah jazz music.  (Brokelyn)

New Orleans’ Swamp Donkeys Ass-Whipping’ Live Jass at The Exley Tonight! (6/20)

In what we hope will be the first of many live, unamplified and ass-whipping music shows, The Exley (1 Jackson St) proudly presents The New Orleans Swamp Donkey’s Traditional Jass Band.

Following recent NYC shows at Sullivan Hall, The Radegast Beer Hall and SOHO House, the Swamp Donkeys will play their unique version of traditional New Orleans Jazz from 8-11pm on Thursday June 20th at The Exley (1 Jackson Street, b/w Union and Meeker).

Everything happens on the front patio– live music, $8 aged Sazerac cocktails, and expertly (i.e. drunkenly) grilled hot dogs. No Cover charge although the band is known to appreciate tips, CD purchases, smiles, and dancing. Join us on a perfect NYC summer night of booze, humidity, food, and great live music. Get an idea of what you’re in store for in the video below.
