Nick Lowe was amongst the show casualties when Rough Trade were forced to cancel/postpone/move shows due to noise complaints from their Williamsburg neighbors. Nick was to have played Sunday afternoon (12/8). There is good news, though. Nick Lowe's show is being moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg. The show's Sunday at 2 PM and you do need to go to Rough Trade to buy his new album Quality Street to get a wristband for entry. Nick is also playing with Calexico backing him at Beacon Theatre on Monday (12/9) as part of the WFUV benefit that's headlined by Iron & Wine. Tickets are still available.

Speaking of, that new album Quality Street is Lowe's first-ever holiday album. A mix of originals and covers, it's the kind of enjoyable, classy affair that you expect from Lowe and he's done us the favor of refusing to put sleigh bells on it. You can stream the whole LP at Spotify and watch the video for "Christmas at the Airport" below...

Wow, this is a great success for Nick Lowe and this holiday album will surely break the record. All the best for Nick!

so instead of a cool in-store, this turns into a short show in a regular venue in the middle of the afternoon, where you can't even get a ticket at that venue but where you need to go to an entirely different place to get a wristband to then get in.

something sorta fun turned kinda annoying.

and rather pointless. Hopefully, now that it's been moved to the Music Hall they will step up to the plate and make the show a little longer for everyone's troubles?

and where is the record signing? At the venue or back at the store?
