Saturday (Record Store Day!)
The New Mastersounds @ Brooklyn Bowl – This four-piece jazz and funk band from Leeds are hitting Brooklyn Bowl on Record Store Day, not long after the release of their 2015 full-length, Made for Pleasure. Get funky with ’em this Saturday once you’ve hit every record store in the city.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs @ Output – With a stage name like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, you know this British DJ is not messing around. Orlando Higginbottom was classically trained in music growing up, which gives his work a definite edge. Check him out at Ouput this Saturday.
