I’ll be on the radio this afternoon doing a few songs on Radio Free Eireann, and later in the day playing as part of a wake for the closing of yet another New York City music venue, along with Mike Skliar. Rocky Sullivan’s, the political Irish bar (or is it an Irish political bar?) run by Chris Byrne, formerly of Black 47, is closing this week. (At least, closing its original Lexington Avenue location; it’s apparently reopening in besieged Red Hook.)
Radio Free Eireann is on WBAI, 99.5 FM, from 1.30 to 3, and streams live at stream.wbai.org. The wake at Rocky’s starts at 4pm, and Rocky’s is on Lexington Avenue between 28th and 29th.
