The Daily Shortlist January 17


Location: Upper West Side, NYC
Bands: The Ecstatic Music Festival
Show time: 2 – 9 PM; FREE
Venue: Merkin Concert Hall
Food: Symposium
Drink: Broadway Dive
Miscellaneous: Sip

The Ecstatic Music Festival kicks off with this FREE day of music from 2 – 9 PM featuring Buke and Gass with Victoire, Ne(x)tworks, the U.S. premiere of John Matthias, Adrian Corker and Andrew Prior’s new work for violin, voice, electric guitar, piano NeuroSampler, and more. Low priced anything near Columbia University is getting harder to find, but at Symposium, you’ll get Greek food that won’t force you to take a mortgage out. The Pastitsio (baked macaroni with ground meat $9.95) is out of this world. Not the kind of dive bar you’re thinking, though Broadway Dive has a single malt scotch and bourbon menu big enough that you won’t even know where you are after a few. A coffee bar that also serves liquor, tapas, and baked goods all in one place? Sip sounds good to me.
