Abrons Art Center and Clandestino

Conversationalists will enjoy this mellow date of a low-key jazz fusion concert followed by a cozy bar.

Electric Kulintang

1 Concert

You won’t have to scream to your beloved over shredding guitars at Filipino trip-hop band Electric Kulintang’s show ($24 for two) at the Abrons Art Center on Fri 14 at 8pm. Part of a series curated by Melissa Caruso Scott, the co-owner of the now-defunct music venue Tonic, this trio’s low-key sound blends traditional Southeast Asian gongs, jazz and hypnotic laptop loops. 466 Grand St at Pitt St (212-598-0400)
