Burnt Rome, Coal and the mysterious Jack Jackson
Yes, the rumors are true: Bar on A is currently soundproofing the place and making it into the perfect spot for acoustic alternative music in NYC. So most of the shows this week are cancelled, except our very special European Folk Country Pop evening.
So come down to Bar on A, 11th Street at 170 Avenue A, around 9pm to see and hear JACK JACKSON play some good ol' Country Blues he picked up all over the planet. Renditions of songs from Leadbelly, Skip James, Big Bill Broonzy... and some originals written during time travelling trips in the 30's. Verify here
Then, the Swiss country sensation COAL is going to play one of his last shows before returning to the old continent. How has New York City inspired his songwriting? Go to his MySpace page to check out this guy's amazing talent and impeccable taste. Live and intimate at 9. 45pm.
Then, at 10.45pm watch Rome burn with 2/5 of ROOM, namely Bernd and Roman as BURNT ROME. They are taking their raunchy songs and stage antics down for one night to reveal the pure bone of five of their songs and one surprising cover. If you sing along, you win a CD. If you bring a friend, we'll buy you a drink. As usual: Room is here.
