Ridgewood bar The Windjammer is now hosting live music on a regular basis, and this Wednesday’s gig features three great artists. Brooklyn-based musician Lina Tullgren just released her excellent second full-length, Free Cell, late last month, so expect to hear a sampling of fresh, new songs from the record. 

She’ll be joined by Starla Online, who just dropped a new song “Red Doesn’t Die,” and Massachusetts-based experimental artist Wendy Eisenberg.

Thursday, Sept. 5

Atlas Engine, Looms, Henry Black, Duke of Surl at Our Wicked Lady, 8 p.m.

This week’s installment of Thursdays For A Cause at Our Wicked Lady  features a stacked lineup that benefits the Environmental Defense Fund. 

Atlas Engine will cap off of a short tour in support of his latest single, the shimmery “Running.” Looms will have a full backing band in tow, and if you haven’t heard their great 2019 record The Way Up yet, check out our great review and give it a listen. The lineup also features the intimate folk of Henry Black, who shared his debut single “YGS” in late July, and a solo set from Will of The Duke of Surl.

Friday, Sept. 6

Sharkswimmer, Duke of Vandals, Queue, A Very Special Episode, Ashjesus at Sunnyvale, 8 p.m.

Friday night’s lineup at Sunnyvale is curated by the newly launched Bloodless Management, a local management and artist development and events company.

Topping the bill are punk quartet Sharkswimmer, who are working on the follow up to their first EP, the explosive Shut-InDuke of Vandals will provides some more aggressive fuzz to this bill, while Queue and A Very Special Episode are both masters of dreamy sounding atmospherics. Ashjesus will hold it down in the opening slot.

Saturday, Sept. 7

Kiss My Brass with Joe Benjamin and Big Village Little City at House of Yes, 8 p.m.

Stop by House of Yes for a funk-filled night of music for Kiss My Brass.  The event celebrates the release of Joe Benjamin’s latest record I’ll Never Die, which has been described as “a journey of pure funkadelic fantasia.”

Attendees will also enjoy the New Orleans-style funk of Amy Grace and her band Big Village Little City.  The event also features DJ Turmix, a groovy raffle, disco dancers and Drag Queens, and tropical drinks and frozen delights.
