This Week in NYC: Cass McCombs Returns, Lucinda Black Bear Rocks Softly at Union Pool

Lucinda Black Bear Plays Union Pool
Lucinda Black Bear Will Rock Softly at Union Pool

Some cool shows happening this week in and around the city, including a mix of the traditional and progressive. The twangy DeLorean Sisters are banjo-ing it up at Union Hall on Saturday, and local indie folk-rockers Lucinda Black Bear take the stage at Union Pool Wednesday. Strongly suggest checking out at least one of these bands. Cass McCombs plays yet another show for Bowery Presents, this time at the Ballroom. In case you’re unfamiliar, check out the Paul Simon-esque ‘County Line’ off of his last record.

Plus, don’t forget that January is almost over, and so is your chance to see residencies by Steve Earle and Allison Moorer, Spirit Family Reunion and Jus Post Bellum. Plan wisely, friends!
