6 Delancey St
New York, NY 10002
With fewer and fewer places to see live music in NYC these days, we're willing to forgive some of the rough edges in this club. The decor puts the old in old school and there's nothing worse than getting your beer in a plastic cup.
The Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg have just announced they will host "Petty Fest 2011" on October 5 & 6. The event will feature musical performances by Norah Jones, Ryan Miller (Guster), and Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne). Comedy personalities Will Forte, Justin Long and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) will also be performing, presumably giving the evening a fun, if not ironic, atmosphere. Forte has performed with Guster before, though, so perhaps he's had some singing lessons in the meantime.
