A Tribute to Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett
In a show the New York Post calls “right on the mark, high-energy and one-of-a-kind,” Brooklyn songwriter, guitarist and actor Roto (aka James Rotondi), a former member of Mr. Bungle and French band Air, will resurrect Barrett gems like “Lucifer Sam,” “Baby Lemonade,” and “Octopus,” channeling both the sound and persona of the lost cult figure, joined by musicians Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph Band) and Dave Diamond (Zen Tricksters).

The Stone Lonesome 10:00 PM
Emily Long and Zach Jones learned to play, sing and write music 3,000 miles away from each other. Inspired by the punk and grunge of the 90’s, Emily spent her teenage years sneaking out to meet boys. Zach, on the other hand, divided his time between playing leading roles in community theater (he remains staunchly heterosexual) and drumming along to his Dad’s favorite records. Fast forward to July to July 2009. Despite their vastly different backgrounds, Emily and Zach found themselves gravitating toward the simplicity and honesty of country music. Several months and as many bottles of whiskey later, The Stone Lonesome was born. Their upcoming debut reflects the heart and excitement of a record 22 years in the making.
