GIG ALERT: Joan As Police Woman at Good Room, $14
Multi-instrumentalist Joan Wasser has performed with some of the most eclectic-minded artists in pop music: Elton John, Damon Albarn, Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, and more. Three years ago, she joined forces with Brooklyn-based musician Benjamin Lazar Davis. The duo is playing an album-release show at Good Room in Greenpoint tonight for their record “Let it be You.”
Their latest collaboration under the name “Joan As Police Woman” features anthemic choruses, global beats, and excellent production. And, if that wasn’t enough, the video for this song features one more inventive friend: comedian Fred Armisen.
