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

jus post bellum
Jus Post Bellum celebrates the release of their record ‘Devil Winter’ this Thursday at The Living Room.

Tis the season of record releases … two of those being the albums of local Brooklyn acts Spirit Family Reunion, whose release show took place this past weekend, and Jus Post Bellum, whose own celebration of the musical kind is set for this Thursday at The Living Room. You can certainly pick up their new record Devil Winter on Bandcamp, but that’s best paired with catching them live (along with opener Twain, which includes a couple members of Spirit Family Reunion). Come support!

Also of note — The Tallest Man on Earth (who loves hyperbole) brings his Swiss-ness to Town Hall two nights in a row this week on a tour promoting his latest album, There’s No Leaving Now. Aoife O’Donovan also plays an intimate set at Rockwood’s Stage 2 on Tuesday — always an awesome venue, always an awesome artist to see live.

If you’ve been storing up your “free-summer-concert” energy so far, use it this Sunday and head to Central Park to check out Robert Ellis, Diamond Rugs and Alabama Shakes. ‘Sgonna be good. There are lots more, though – see full cal below:
