What is the perfect antidote to the post-holiday blues? A night of great live music. This week, the previously snowed-in show with Talib Kweli at Highline Ballroom is rescheduled, Ms. Lauryn Hill plays rare club performances at The Blue Note and E-Street Band/Ex-Conan drummer Max Weinberg performs a "Big Band" show.
Definitely worth mentioning is the Rock & Roll Circus Party that is happening on Monday, January 3 and Tuesday, January 4. Both nights are packed with great bands (including Japanther, Ariel Pink and Yeah Yeah Yeah's guitarist Nick Zinner) and it is all performed for free, under the Big Apple Circus Tent.
