There’s a few chances to catch Savoir Adore singer Deidre Munro in NYC this weekend. First, she’ll play tonight (11/2) with her solo project-turned-band Deidre & the Dark at Gottscheer Hall in Ridgewood, Queens (657 Fairview Ave) with fellow Brooklynites Ski Lodge and French Horn Rebellion (DJ). The show is a halloween party and there will be prizes for the best costume. $8 advance tickets are still available and it’s $10 at the door with a costume, $12 without.
Then on Saturday (11/3), Deidre will play again, this time as a member of Savoir Adore with another Brooklyn band bill of Jarana Beat and Slowdance at the Brooklyn Museum. The show is part of Brooklyn Museum’s Target First Saturdays, for which admission is totally free and includes access to galleries, tours, an interactive space, a light show, and more. The full schedule for this Saturday is HERE. Though note: “Please note, due to Hurricane Sandy the programming schedule for the November 3 Target First Saturday may continue to change”, AND NO DANCING.
In related news, right next door to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden will be reopened with free admission all weekend, starting today and lasting through Sunday.
