Around New York ... June 14 - 20

This week's highlights ...

Two words ... The Heavy! (pictured right) They'll be at Bowery Ballroom on Monday, June 14 with The Black Hollies supporting them. You should go. These cats are not to be missed. They're also at the same venue on Wednesday, June 16, supported by Mount Carmel. But, that show is sold out! So, if you didn't get tickets for that one, your loss! *Bad-ass show pick of the week*

The trio of Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette will be at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, June 17. The Jazz Gallery All-Stars will be at Symphony Space on Friday, June 18.

The National takes on Radio City Music Hall with The Antlers in support slot on Wednesday, June 16.

June 17 - Thursday is a hot night for music! The London Souls (pictured left) will be melting faces down at Bowery Ballroom that night. Seriously folks, these guys will melt body parts.
