Music: Nick Young at the All-Asia Bar

Nick Young plays the
All-Asia tonight
This is a particularly busy week for comedy, but if you feel like taking a break in between the Women In Comedy Festival Shows and Maz Jobrani tomorrow, head over to the All-Asia in Cambridge to see Nick Young as part of the CNC Indie Music Marathon. Young hails from Rochester, NY, my old stomping grounds. He also writes and performs my favorite kind of music – Americana/ New Sincerity/Whatever the Hell You Call It. Formerly the frontman for Rochester’s Burning Daylight, Young just released his first solo album, Truth Is. If you’re fond of pedal steel guitars and twang, and post-Replacements Paul Westerberg, pick it up. For a little more about Young, head over to North Country Music Report to read an interview (conducted by a fellow with whom I briefly shared a high school).

Also on the bill, Elison Jackson, Tavonna Miller, Voda, and Smashy the Blues. 6PM. All-Asia Bar, 334 Mass Ave., Cambridge.
