clippings calendar: This Week’s Must-See Shows in NYC

this frontier needs heroes

Upset that you didn’t snag tickets to Jack White and Alabama Shakes’ back-to-back shows this week at Roseland? Uh huh, us too. But look on the bright side …… um ….. okay, yeah, nevermind.

There are still a bunch of great shows to catch. Of note, Brooklyn’s fave brother-sister duo This Frontier Needs Heroes is playing Teddy’s Bar and Grill in Williamsburg on Wednesday. I dare say it’s an interesting choice of venue, but could be cool because of its intimacy. Check out their latest single called ‘2012’ below … it has me swooning and sighing. Also, you know you don’t work next Monday, so you really should head to Rockwood or the Ace Hotel on Sunday — the former’s got a night of ‘amped-up’ Americana planned, and the ever-so-cool Ace continues their Sunday free music nights with the impressive new band Shenandoah and the Night.
