The Daily Shortlist April 8
UK’s The Duke Spirit play a bluesy kind of rock led by sultry vocalist Liela Moss. With their recently released album Neptune, expect a lot of new material from this up and coming band. Don’t miss openers The Pierces, a sister duo who play eclectic folk music with attitude. At Sammy’s Roumanian Steakhouse, expect an atmosphere involving some sort of scene, dancing, and plenty of vodka. The eastern European menu comes down to steaks and chops, and Jewish delicacies like Kasha Varniskes and Kreplach. One of the hipper bars in Nolita, Sweet & Vicious has an all-wood interior featuring big round circular fixtures with lights that make Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” come to mind, and the prices won’t burn a hole in your wallet! Want a $12 martini that’s worth more? Pravda has an extensive selection of Russian vodkas, and who knows vodka better than the Russians?
