The Daily Shortlist Feb 28

The Private Side of Petra Haden

Location: Tribeca, NYC
Bands: Fred Armisen + Petra Haden and the Sellouts
Venue: Knitting Factory
Food: Pakistani Tea house
Drink: Walker’s
Miscellaneous: J&R

Not just a “Not Ready for Prime-Time Player,” Fred Armisen is a brilliant comedian who started out as a drummer, while Petra Haden, daughter of Jazz bassist Charlie, has had a great career as a singer, even covering the complete album “The Who Sell Out” and Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller.” Tonight she plays with the Sellouts. Perhaps a pun on that Who album? For eats, the Pakistani Tea house is a great little discreet Indian restaurant serving five to six different types of Indian food that is way cheaper than this show. For a drink, try Walker’s. This local hang serves up inexpensive drinks and makes a great burger. Being in the financial district, there’s not a lot going on in Tribeca, but thank god for J&R. With music, electronics, and computer stores all in one area, you chances of getting bored are slim.
