Weekend Music Picks

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

Foster McGinty

FOSTER MCGINTY - Fri, Apr 22 І 7:30PM at the Mercury Lounge

Combining squirmy stage antics with tight pants and Mad-Hatter chapeau Foster McGinty is a frontman through & through. Though beneath his pencil moustache, McGinty is a prolific writer, turning out song after song in a psychedelic 1970’s sex-rock style. A skilled riff-slinger, McGinty hits the Mercury stage on Friday to release his new recording “Chateau Fiasco“. $10//217 E. Houston St.
