First, I saw The Girls with the Jones Street Station Band at Le Poisson Rouge. The thing about the Girls is they sing covers. The thing about Jones Street Station is they play that twangy Americana that everyone loves (now). The other thing about the Girls is they're all actresses, the most famous of which being Alison Brie, from Community and Mad Men.
For their encore they sang "Get Lucky." So here's a video of most of that:
Now here's a coincidence: on my way to the Girls show I saw Donald Glover, also from Community, hanging out on a corner in Soho, just talking with people and stuff.
After The Girls I had a spot on tostada de tinga from a new taqueria in the Village, "Mocajete Taqueria."
Then I got the L over to Brooklyn and saw Ringo Deathstarr at Public Assembly. They're a loud, heavy shoegazy band from Austin.
Thought I'd include video of them to illustrate the opposite ends of my "Music I Like" spectrum.
