LMB NYC: This Week’s Concert Calendar (March 26 – April 1)

by -

Lots of good shows in NYC this week, including another big 90’s jamband reunion with the original lineup of Strangefolk getting the band back together at Brooklyn Bowl. We’ve also got a number of great indie rock shows, including Of Montreal, Cloud Nothings, Delta Spirit, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Wild Flag, and Andrew Bird will be busting out his loops and whistles. On top of that, Dr. John will be joined by the Blind Boys of Alabama at BAM, and there’s some good EDM and groove-oriented options like DJ Shadow, Crystal Stilts, and Mord Fustang.

Since I’m on vacation this week, I’m trimming this week’s post down to the basics. I’ll be back next week with the full listings and live samples. Read on for all the show listings and details.
