The Daily Shortlist April 13


Location: Midtown West, NYC
Bands: Neko Case Get Tickets Here
Show time: 7 PM
Venue: Nokia Theater
Food: Empanada Mama
Drink: Circus
Miscellaneous: Vintage

Alt-country singer Neko Case brings her folky voice to the Nokia Theater. Her solo work has brought her a HUGE following and her work with The New Pornographers is just as good. She’s got a new album out called Middle Cyclone, the first solo album she’s put out in three years. Though small, Empanada Mama packs a hefty punch with more than 40 kinds of empanadas. Choose from a wheat or corn flour shell to start as ingredients include basic rice and beans to what they have dubbed “Viagra,” a wheat flour empanada stuffed with shrimp, scallop, and crab ($3). Appropriately, at Circus, you’ll get free hot dogs, peanuts, and popcorn without the animals, screaming babies, and clowns at this Rudy’s Bar spin-off that has beer just as cheap and a neighborhood feel. If cheap beer ain’t your thing, Vintage has a wine list with over 200 wines by the glass or bottle from most of the boutique wineries in Long Island and Upstate New York.
