Weekend Music Picks

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

ANDREW VLADECK – Fri Dec. 9 | 10pm at The Living Room

Andrew Vladeck

The last time we highlighted songwriter/banjo-picker extraordinaire Andrew Vladeck, he was performing as part of The Lo-Down’s CMJ showcase back in October. He’s back on the Lower East Side tomorrow, at the Living Room, and he’ll be followed by another great band (of which he is a regular member), Balthrop, Alabama. Formed by brother/sister team Pascal and Lauren Balthrop, Balthrop, Alabama offers up super-fun tunes, with left-of-center themes, and accompanies them with live illustratons.  FREE//154 Ludlow St.
