New York Live Picks For 9/9

There is no shortage of great shows happening tonight in NYC. The featured show is the stacked line-up at the Mercury Lounge. New West's Tim Easton shares the bill with our current favorite A.A. Bondy and music industry vet/ace musician Dave Godowski. For anyone that fancies a bill of solid songwriters who draw from the storied cannon of American Music, this is the one.

Elsewhere in NYC...

Tonight at Union Hall, the LA group Princeton celebrate the release of their excellent new album Cocoon of Love which is out 9/29 on Kanine Records but is available now digitally. It's a mix of summer pop and more straightforward indie rock. All in all it's an intoxicating debut that's as well written as it is tastefully executed. Kanine Labelmates ZaZa are also performing down the road at the Bell House with The Drones.
