The International Bar formerly THE COAL YARD Corner of 1st Avenue & 6st. East Village NYC .The official Rubber Eden Bar is one that my Kid’s GF picked out for me on the lower east side one Fall. Must to check out the. No sound system (only a old juke box) nice and dark, circular bar stocked with regulars, ill-regulars, beats, punks, hippies, left-overs, reheated souls and characters galore and aglow. Friendly bartenders, cheap beer (yea they have 3 buck High Life) and a killer court yard out back (as displayed here) to have a butt and talk in. Here’s a link for more info
Howard Thompson’s radio tour-de-force program entitled Pure on WPKN 89.5 FM from Bridgeport, Connecticut can be heard the 1st & 3rd Friday of the month, 1-4pm. Not in Tri-State terrestrial broadcast area of Long Island/Conn/Mass ? Not to worry you can stream this excellent eclectic free-for all. Just no telling what you’ll hear from Howard’s incredibility voluminous encyclopedic discography, but always the very best of the best across the broad spectrum of expression from Rock n Roll to the aural sonic world beyond. Perfect way to kick off the weekend. Essential links below:
Miss a past program ? (there all very diverse & worthwhile)
More background of the hosts extensive history in the music biz
And addition is own internet radio station is highly recommend as well
