Middle Eastern Music @ The Grizzly Pear 6/22/08

I got to see that Middle Eastern band and my friend Val bellydance again. I really like that music, so it wasn’t hard to get me back. Val said Le Figaro closed, which is a shame since that was Bob Dylan and the beat generation hangout. For now, they are keeping up the Sun night thing at this place at 107 Sullivan, above Bleeker.

In a lot of ways, I like the place better. They do have much slower service, though.

The band was again pretty good. They have this amazing girl drummer that is awesome and well worth getting out. It’s actually no cover and they say a $20 minimum, but I don’t think that is heavily enforced.

I liked the clarinet last night as well.
