The Daily Shortlist May 20
Anti-folk singer Jeffrey Lewis makes politically charged punk songs that are witty, crazy and fun. Joining him is one of his collaborators Diane Cluck whose got a lush voice and knows how to beautifully lay out a song with just an acoustic guitar and a drummer named Anders Griffin. Also performing is folk influenced singer Pepi Ginsberg. Where to go afterwards? 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 and Cheese (Macaroni covered in Three Cheese Truffled Mornay Sauce and 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!
