Every Sunday at 5 PM, New York Music Daily presents the Sunday Salon at Zirzamin, where some of New York’s edgiest songwriters and musicians trade songs and cross-pollinate in the old Zinc Bar space at Houston and LaGuardia. There’s never a cover charge; the club has cheap beer, good Tex-Mex food, and the public is welcome to attend. Participation is by invitation only – this is NOT an open mic and those without an invite are welcome to watch, but the stage is exclusively for members. After the salon, there’s a set at 7 PM by one of this city’s elite performers. Coming up:
5/19 brilliant powerpop/psychedelic guitarist Pete Galub (of the Universal Thump and Amy Allison’s band) playing songs from his excellent new album Candy Tears.
5/26 Phil Shoenfelt and Pavel Cingl from popular Czech gothic rockers Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross, making their Manhattan debut.
6/2 Lorraine Leckie & Her Demons play a creepy mix of careening Canadian gothic rock and brooding chamber pop.
6/9 Pistolera’s Sandra Lilia Velasquez a.k.a. SLV brings her hypnotic, pensively smart, politically aware, sometimes sultry latin rock and soul sound in a special intimate show.
6/16 art-rock chanteuse Carol Lipnik and luminous pianiat Matt Kanelos’ haunting Ghosts in the Ocean project.
Other dates to follow. Zirzamin is located downstairs at the corner of Houston St. and LaGuardia Pl. in the West Village of Manhattan. The closest train is actually the B/D/F/6 to Broadway-Lafayette/Houston St.; it’s also an easy three-minute walk from the W 4th St. subway station.
