Weekend in NoMad NY: Comedy, Sinkane, Vijay Iyer

Vijay Iyar at Jazz Standard in NoMad

There is a ton going on in NoMad NY this weekend. Besides great restaurants and bars, NoMad will play host to some of NYC’s best comedy, a DJ set by one of our favorite up and coming bands and acclaimed Jazz.

This weekend, Jazz Standard plays host to the Vijay Iyer Trio. The trio will perform three sets on Friday and Saturday, and an additional two on Sunday. The pianist/composer has received an exorbitant amount of praise from the jazz media. Popmatters proclaimed that “the Vijay Iyer Trio is the best band in jazz.” Tickets are available at the Jazz Standard website.

The People’s Improv Theater (PIT) will play host to some of NYC’s best up and coming comedians. With shows running from around 6pm to midnight every night this weekend, The PIT is a great option for a fun night with friends or to take a date!

Tonight will mark the last DJ set of Sinkane’s Ace Hotel residency. You may have read our writeup a few weeks ago of the Ahmed Gallab led project. Putting aside their bombastic live shows, their DJ sets are a ton of fun also.

Have a fun and safe weekend in NoMad NY!
