Here are musician Ken Beasley’s top music picks on the Lower East Side for this weekend:
MORRICONE YOUTH – Fri, Nov. 4 | 9PM at Rockwood Music Hall
It’s always fun when smart, talented musicians go conceptual with their band or repertoire. Morricone Youth are a snappy-dressing sextet specializing in covers of dramatic film scores and soundtrack music (mostly from the 60s and 70s). They work their magic incredibly well doing faithful renditions, as well as their own contemporary interpretations of others. Even their original compositions seem tailor-made for a stoic Clint Eastwood, smoldering in the Italian desert sun. FREE//196 Allen St.
