Day of Show: Your concert guide for Tuesday
Tue May 5 2009
Fresh from his two-night stand with the Dead at the Izod Center last week, Branford Marsalis brings his quartet to the Jazz Standard tonight, kicking off a weeklong run. Marsalis's latest album, Metamorphosen, offers the latest evidence that his band—with pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts—is one of the hardest, tightest squads in the game. Don't miss your chance to watch it scrimmage tonight.
Those unswayed by all that jazz have plenty of options available...
Angel Deradoorian (of Dirty Projectors renown) recently stopped by our offices to woo curiosity seekers via this blog's Perfect Pitch series. We're convinced, and you will be too; catch her tonight at Cake Shop.
Pint-size firecracker Lady Sovereign, interviewed here last week, blows up at the Highline Ballroom, with the irresistible pop duo Chester French (whom we recently taped in a Steve Madden in-store gig) in the opening slot.
The Motor City disco punks of Electric Six get wired at the Bowery Ballroom.
And you can celebrate Cinco de Mayo at S.O.B.'s with Amandititita, Mexico City's foremost proponent of anarcumbia.
