Winter Jazz Fest and other NYC Concert Recommendations for 1/11-1/16

It’s APAP conference week again which means way too much music to choose from, and the annual Winter Jazz Fest. This sells out every year so buy your tickets early. I made my picks for the difficult to navigate WJF at the bottom.

Dirty Projectors/yMusic @ Carnegie Hall
8pm $30-$65

Saturday, January 12th
Noam Pickelny and Friends, Aoife O’Donnovan, yMusic @ Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
7PM $20 Adv tickets sold out but a few available at the door. Or borrow an APAP badge.

Feaufollet @ Barbes
Amazing modern cajun-rock from Lafayette! 11pm

Wednesday, January 16th
Joy Kills Sorrow and The Andrew and Noah Band @ Rockwood Music Hall
The on-fire JKS plays a ticketed show ($10) at Stage 2 at 8:30pm, then hop next door to Stage 1 for the full 7-piece Andrew and Noah Band in a rare NYC appearance at 11pm (no cover).
