The Daily Shortlist January 28
California’s Cold War Kids stop by the Mercury Lounge, as their in town to play Late Night with Conan O’Brien. Catch this indie band now, as you’re not too likely to see them in a venue this small and intimate for a long long time to come. If you’re starving, I mean really starving, head over to Katz’s Deli. This old school deli packs on the pastrami a mile high. The portions are huge and the place is classic NY. For drinks, Nurse Bettie is a chic looking bar with exposed brick walls, paintings of 50s pinups, and offers an excellent cocktail menu. Stop by Ludlow Guitars if there’s time and peruse through some magnificent rare and new music equipment from inexpensive to guitars that you will have to save dearly to afford.
