Make Music New York Sampler

As we mentioned before, this Tuesday won't be your average Vintage Thrift shopping experience. That's because we'll have live music playing from 2pm until close as part of Make Music New York.

In true Vintage fashion, we've managed to snag an amazing lineup. Watch and listen for a sampling of what's to come:

2:00pm   You'll think you're listening to a Duncan Sheik- or Ben Lee-esque pop ditty (remember them?), but just like his predecessors, John Brodeur changes the moment with lyrics that waver the line between sentimental and dark and brooding.

3:00 pm   Dexter Scott will serenade you with pop acoustic ballads that remind us of John Mayer, Maroon 5, and their ilk, but it's his smooth, clear voice that'll really sweep you off your feet.

5:30 pm    The third slot of the day belongs to Ramblin' Andy and the See Ya Laters, a quirky quintet from, well,  all over the place. Andy and friends have honed their rustic sound into the seemingly impossible: succinct tunes that take bounce back and forth, but end up right where they started froma place called home.

7:30 pm    Winding down the night is Brooklyn duo A-E-I-O-U, pronounced "vowels". Band members Kristen Felicetti and Lauren Piper layer sweet vocalizations over plucky acoustics, glockenspiels, and the occasional harmonica.
