Syl Johnson & JC Brooks are in town this week too (dates)

Syl Johnson

Anonymous 1:57 AM left a potentially true tip that “SJ” are opening for Yo La Tengo at Maxwell’s on Saturday. 2:30 quickly followed with a guess that SJ could in fact be Syl Johnson… who happens to be playing Southpaw Friday night (12/3).

Last time Syl Johnson was in town, he was backed by JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound who won’t be backing him again this time because they’re playing DC Friday night, BUT they will be in NYC one night later to play Public Assembly (with The Above / Fred Thomas / Gospel Queens / Poor But Sexy).
