Jessica 6 Tonight and Sunday at McCarren Hall

My good friend Walter was kind enough to let me me stay at his museum on Graham Avenue. 30,000 records line the walls. Clothing spanning 4 decades are displayed on individual hangars. 1000s of comic books and hundreds of shoes. Most of it all his. Walter had spun records as a DJ most of his adult life. We worked together at the Rex in Paris. Lately he booked bands for summer stage and promoted pet projects such as Jonathan Fireeater. I was mostly out of town for these endeavors, however his latest protege Jessica 6 caught me by surprise.

The lead singer Nomi Ruiz made me cry and dance in the same set last month. The rhythm section depends on drums bass and organ. No fucking lead guitar god.

Jessica 6 just returned from a tour of Iceland, London, and Istanbul.

They’re playing tonight and Sunday at McCarren Hall

I most certainly am going.

Here’s the info.
