Dark Dark Dark at LPR – photo via WNYC Culture
I have worked at LPR for about a year and some change now. It’s my first home, away from home (being the Pacific NW). The music ranges from late night European house music to acoustic folk, with many great humanitarian benefits in between.
LPR is a sigh of relief amongst the more corporate chains so easily disguised as “hip” in NYC. Run for musicians, by musicians and music lovers, it’s hard to think of a better place to work in the city.
We are, after all, “Classical As Fuck.”
Now to the music. There have been plenty of amazing shows, especially through NPR, but here are a couple of my absolute favorites that have played the club:
1. Emily Wells
2. Dark Dark Dark
3. Blood Orange
4. Poor Moon
5. Blackbird Blackbird
6. John Adams’ String Quartets performed by Attacca Quartet
8. Jozef Van Wissem & Jim Jarmusch
9. David Lynch Presents: Chrysta Bell
10. Mount Eerie
