Twin Sister at McCarren Park last month (more by Andrew St. Clair)
The live variety show Radio Happy Hour is returning to Le Poisson Rouge tonight, Friday (8/12) with a number of special guests, including Twin Sister, Mike Doughty, Matt Pond PA, Franz Nicolay, Max Silvestri, Gabe Liedman, Dave Hill, and others. The lineup is huge, possibly because this one is being billed as the "Final Episode". Tickets for the show are on sale.
Dave Hill is also hosting Speed Metal Dating, a night of heavy metal/hard rock and speed dating on August 19 at Black Rabbit Bar in Brooklyn. Check out a flier for the event below. You can also catch Dave on August 27th at the Rock Shop along with Ted Leo and Doug Gillard.
Twin Sister recently announced a tour that includes a show happening at Mercury Lounge on September 29. Tickets for that show are still on sale (and stay tuned for a possible announcement that they'll also be opening for Pains at Bowery Ballroom??).
