The Daily Shortlist October 21
Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson has worked with members of TV on the Radio and his latest self-titled album was produced by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, which says a lot about this singer-songwriter. Lykki Li is well known for her folky voice with guitar in hand alone on the stage shows singing melodic songs that people seem to love. Joining them at this CMJ show are Micachu and Friendly Fires. To start a night that will no doubt rock, you may want to go straight to the bar, and that bar would be 151, where happy hour is 7 days a week from 6pm till 10pm and includes 2 for 1 drinks. For those that don’t want a liquid dinner first, check Social for comfort food including the Mac & Cheese (Macaroni covered in Three Cheese Truffled Mornay Sauce & topped w/Seasoned Bread Crumbs). For a late night eat, a favorite spot of mine is Bereket for falafels and to watch drunks succeed at spilling their food all over themselves and failing at picking up chicks. Not for the faint of heart!
