Monday, Feb. 10: Monday Jazz Jam with the Peach Serene Jazz Trio

The New Frontier Lounge isn't The Five Spot on Cooper Square. Then again, it doesn't sit in the East Village of the 1950s either. But, grab the corner bar stool on a Monday night at The New Frontier, nurse a double bourbon, close your eyes and let pianist Nate Dybevik,

Saturday, Feb. 8: Mardi gras

While the Key Peninsula Civic Center can't promise all of the gratuitous nudity and open liquor laws of New Orleans, the folks running the joint can guarantee good music and a good time. If you haven't spent much time in Louisiana, you may not be too versed in Mardi gras.

Saturday, Feb. 8: Dead Winter Carpenters

At first listen, Dead Winter Carpenters surprised me with their high-energy alt-country. The skilled fingers of the guitarist diddling up and down the neck, the easy vocals, telling stories of the road, the woods and the law, the combination of bass, drum, harmonica, fiddle and viola in a big sound,

Barney Rubble belted it in the bath. Spongebob stole Squidward's thunder by singing it underwater. And most famously, Bugs gnawed his way through several rounds of "Figaro! Figaro!
