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

River City Extenstion
River City Extension plays Bowery Ballroom in NYC this week.

Here’s what you need to do this week: first, get yourself to Bowery on Tuesday to hear Aunt Martha and Delta Rae. Sleep, wake up, work, brave the streets of Williamsburg to catch Yonder Mountain String Band at Brooklyn Bowl. Or if you can’t hack the hipsters, Holy Ghost Tent Revival plays safe-haven Rockwood that night, as well. Sleep, wake up, work, head to The Bell House to see my husba-I mean Langhorne Slim do what he does (Break hearts? Yes. Propose marriage? One hopes…). Friday – your day off! Take a breather, ride a carousel, eat cheese puffs.

Okay, then there’s Saturday — and this is exciting: River City Extension requires your presence at Bowery Ballroom. Don’t mess this one up by missing it – these guys (and gals) don’t get up here all that often, and they’re lovely. Proof:
