Boogie on down

My preview of the upcoming Kelley Polar show is up. New and improved: Be sure to scroll down to the end to hear streams of three songs from Polar's somptuous new album, I Need You to Hold On While the Sky Is Falling (Environ).

Note that this weekend the stars will be in perfect disco alignment over Brooklyn. Escort plays Southpaw in Park Slope Friday night for the meager price of $10 ($12 at the door), which amounts to less than a dollar per Escort member! Here's a short clip from the ensemble's PS1 gig last year. The sound is crappy but you can still tell they're playing Gino Soccio's "Dancer." You can even see me, wearing a red T-shirt and striking a rock-critic pose (ie, observing instead of dancing) when the camera pans left around 0:47.

The following day, Saturday March 1, the aforementioned Polar plays as part of the big Environ bash at Studio B in Greenpoint.

I'll be at both shows. See you there, New Yorkers!
