Hollie Cook @ Glasslands in October (more by PSquared)

NYC SummerStage is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2015 and you can get a taste of what's to come this year at their annual preview party which happens at Highline Ballroom on Thursday (1/8). Hollie Cook will headline, making this her second-ever NYC show. (Her first was at Glasslands in October.) Also on the bill: Montreal's harp-weilding Barr Brothers and Taylor McFerrin (yes, son of Bobby). Tickets are on sale. The Highline Show is Hollie's only show currently on her schedule. Her second album, Twice, was one of my favorite albums of 2014 and you can stream it below.

The next night (Friday, 1/9) at Highline is Neneh Cherry's first ever NYC show (tickets). Fun fact: both Neneh and Hollie were members of The Slits, albeit 25 years apart. Flyer for the SummerStage 2015 preview show below...
