Weekend Music: The Andy Travis Shearling Coat (9/23 – 9/25)
Semi-secret show alert! Our favorite creepy-looking Aussie Alex Cameron is playing Aviv tonight (9/23) at 9:30. It just got announced yesterday by the club. In case you are not familiar with his work, he lays lounge singer sleaze over retro synth sounds.
And the ugliness is actually a makeup job, to help him get in character.
Elsewhere this weekend, there’s SNL’s Maya Rudolph performing with her Prince tribute band, The Levellers and John the Martyr in town, and filthy soul 45’s to sing along to at Our Wicked Lady.
DJ Wig Doctor is the one who will spinning at Our Wicked Lady on Saturday night. He starts at 10 pm, and there’s no cover.
I’m hoping his Dominican body double at least makes a brief surprise appearance.
Also Saturday night, John the Martyr plays the Knitting Factory at midnight.
The band’s style is Motown by way of New Orleans. They are stirring, tight, and funky. Here, see for yourself.
Finally, it’s hard to pass up any Prince tribute these days, we miss him so. The tribute band Princess is at Brooklyn Bowl both tonight and Saturday at 9 pm.
Here’s a preview of their show.
