The Daily Shortlist January 21
Not only will you get a chance to hear Basia Bulat’s new album Heart of My Own at this Paste Mag Listening Party: Basia Bulat, but Basia herself will be there doing a short intimate performance. But there’s more . . . $1 Brooklyn Brewery Beers till there’s no more, more drinks, raffle/giveaways to her Mercury Lounge
show on 3/27, autographed posters/vinyl, DJ sets. Who doesn’t like free stuff? One of the best Japanese restaurants in the city, Yama, serves up some of the hugest and freshest portions of sushi, while not being as expensive as you think. Close to Irving Plaza, 119 Bar is one dive where you can get cheap drinks, play pool, and hang with friends while not standing out or being bothered when you’re a sweaty mess from dancing after seeing Shadow and Chemist perform, and I mean that in a good way! If you’re bored and early for the show, head over to the four floor Barnes & Noble to look through magazines and get a cup of coffee.
