This Week’s Must-See Shows in NYC


This week is a week of exciting proportions … for a whole pile of reasons. Here’s one: you’ve got the chance to check out a bunch of fantastic up-and-coming artists like John Fullbright and Sam Doore & the Tumbleweeds.

We’re already fangirls for Fullbright (trademarking that), but quickly becoming enamored with the sounds of the New Orleans-based Tumbleweeds. Pretty sure you will, too.

Check out this cover of Oklahoma-grown J.J. Cale’s ‘Drifter’s Wife’ to wet your whistle, and head to the two-fer on Thursday night at Joe’s Pub:
