This Week’s Music Picks

Must Read

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

Shroud Eater

SHROUD EATER – Wednesday, Sept. 22 at Pianos

The Miami based post-punk group Shroud Eater packs a hell of a punch. Growling out the kind of pumping noise numbers that cage fighters walk out to at the Mandalay Bay on fight night, the trio (two chicks on the front end – one dude on the drum end) inspire a certain amount of sweatiness. On tour with metal assemblage Monstro from Atlanta, Shroud Eater aim to kick-off Wednesday night at Pianos with the appropriate musical savagery. // FREE // 7pm // 158 Ludlow Street.

Sloan Wainwright

SLOAN WAINWRIGHT – Friday, Sept. 24 at The Living Room

The talent of the Wainwright clan is vast indeed. Sloan Wainwright, sister of Loudon, aunt of Rufus and Martha, has been putting out records and gathering a loyal following for the last 15 years. Much more on the traditional end of the folk genre, she supports her songs with a strong, deep voice that can easily fill any of the listening rooms she’s been touring in the last year. Wainwright plays the Living Room this Friday in support of her latest release, Rediscovery. $15 // 8pm // 154 Ludlow St.

The Doc Marshalls

THE DOC MARSHALLS – Sunday, Sept. 12 at Mercury Lounge

The southern roots of The Doc Marshalls are obvious, and it’s clear that although they now live in Brooklyn, members of the group have not lost their sincere affection for the music they grew up with. Mixing Cajun with Honkytonk, their tunes come off as honest and boot-stomping as anything currently coming out of the lower states. Case in point would be the night’s headliner Roger Creager, also from TX. I welcome you to put the Marshall’s tune, You know what the law is in Texas, against Creager’s Driving Home.  Both songs have pedal steel, both are about “home” and include themes of regret, but one comes off gritty and real, the other, painfully contrived. I’ll let you decide which is which. Mercury Lounge // $10 // 6:30pm // 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.
