Weekend Music Picks

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

Julia Haltigan

JULIA HALTIGAN – Fri, Oct. 28 | 9PM at Rockwood Music Hall

Julia Haltigan has a sharply delivered, full bodied sound not all that dissimilar to other female retro-rockers like Amy Winehouse and Duffy, although Haltigan’s comes across a bit more voodoo vixen, than hotrods & high-waters.  Nestled somewhere in the middle of Wanda Jackson and early Roy Orbison,  Haltigan’s material gets lifted up by the shoulders of a stellar backing band and her own top-notch sepia-soaked voice.
