Weekend Music Picks

Must Read

Here are musician Ken Beasley’s top music picks on the Lower East Side this weekend:

THE SOFT PACK – Friday, Sept. 10 at 9:30pm

The Soft Pack


Straight forward rock & roll. Sometimes you don’t want to have to think too much. You want to just sit back, down a beer, and rock out to a good band on stage. The Soft Pack (formerly called ‘The Muslims’) delivers just that. Not to say that Matt & Matty, the two heads of this Orthrus, don’t dedicate attention to the content of their writing. They certainly do, but that’s just a bonus. The real reason to catch them is because they’re fun, they throw down some good riffs, and they don’t suck. $15 // Bowery Ballroom – 6 Delancey Street

ROBERT KIDNEY – Saturday, Sept. 11 at 9pm

The Numbers Band

If you even remotely know The Numbers Band (15-60-75), then you definitely know Robert Kidney. The tight, full, brassy sounding blues group of the 70s tore through high energy songs like no other. The band has since had a series of ups and downs and personnel changes but Kidney, the mad scientist behind it all, is still going strong with his own stuff. He will be making a rare appearance at the Living Room, backed up by some of his old bandmates, along with some special guests. $15 // The Living Room – 154 Ludlow St.

THE NIGHTMARE RIVER BAND – Sunday, Sept. 12 at 7pm

Nightmare River Band

Few bands can boast the range of The Nightmare River Band. Blazing through a high-speed punk song, taking a screeching left turn into harmony filled folk-rock, then spinning smoky doughnuts right in the middle of 80’s garage rock, the 4-man group seems to pull it off quite well. The lyrics are fun enough, and the unpolished vocal delivery gives the songs a real honesty. They’ll be playing the Mercury on Sunday, sandwiched between The Jaguar Club, and Field Theory. $8// Mercury Lounge – 217 East Houston Street

Splitting his time between performing and producing, contributor Ken Beasley primarily plays with his own roots/rock band, Ken Beasley & Co., as well as the power punk outfit Missy Sport, while also curating the Underground at the Abrons music series on the Lower East Side.
