Blondes, Chromatics and more playing Dekalb Market (not together), which has Rooftop Films tonight
by Bill Pearis
While he’s been hot stuff in his home of Los Angeles for a while, retro-styled R&B bandleader Nick Waterhouse is now gaining traction in New York too. His show this Saturday (5/19) at Mercury Lounge is now sold-out and he’s been added to the line-up of the Village Voice 4Knots Festival at South Street Seaport on July 14.
In between —
next weekend to be specific — he’ll also play The Do-Over which happens at Dekalb Market on Sunday, May 27. It’s a free party that goes from 2PM – 10PM and features a “secret cast of mystery guests” of whom Waterhouse is one. You do need to RSVP to go.
CORRECTION: The Do-Over is happening on May 27 but Nick isn’t playing. Sorry for any confusion.
Nick also just released a video for his song “Some Place” from his enjoyable debut LP, Time’s All Gone, which is out now and streamable at the bottom of this post, along with the new video.
The Do-Over is one of a growing number of shows happening at the Downtown Brooklyn space. Other announced shows include a series of parties thrown by Fixed and The Dog and Pony Show happening in June, July and August: Blondes with Holy Ghost! DJ set (6/3, tickets), Chromatics (7/22, tickets) and Maxxi Sound System (8/18, tickets).
Dekalb Market is also one of the Rooftop Films locations, and the first screening there happens TONIGHT (5/17) with a series of short films (inlcluding the brilliant “Walt Disney’s Taxi Driver”) and musical guest Future Shuttle.
