Weekend in NoMad: Azar Lawrence Quintet, DJs
NoMad is the neighborhood to see great live music on the weekends! This weekend, we have a top saxophone player, DJs and a band straight from Brooklyn.
The Azar Lawrence Quintet will perform throughout the weekend at Jazz Standard. Led by the tenor/soprano saxophonist, this band features Freddie Hendrix (trumpet), George Cables (piano), Alex Blake (bass) and Billy Hart (drums). The NY Times compared Azar Lawrence’s playing to “plugging into a life force.”
Ace Hotel will host some cool events this weekend as well. On friday night, DJ Michael Cavadias will spin in the Lobby Bar. On saturday, White Iris Records, home to Oberhofer and Electric Guest, will send over some of their talent to hit the decks. Sunday night sees a return of Color War, who will continue their June residency. This week, Jason Bartell will open for them.
Have a great weekend!
