Milton - NYC's new urban anthem?
Milton is a New York City-based singer/songwriter known in clubs and college radio stations up and down the east coast for his hummable melodies, spot on lyrics, tight, groovy band and soulful, energetic live shows. Come jam with Milton and other emerging artists every Wednesday in February at the Living Room at 154 Ludlow Street. Multi-set show starts at 7, most sets have no cover.

Strange how patriotism seems to be creeping back on the scene, isn't it? Okay okay, we also still cringe when we hear that word but the Milton Band's poetic "In the City" conjures within us such intense feelings of urban pride that we wonder whether Milton's observations of the Lower East Side's "dive bars and skateboards and old cars and old men and young girls and gold teeth and fake pearls and dreadlocks and side curls and tailors and sailors and church saints and spray paint and the tacos and the wacos and the warhols" might be the beginnings of New York's own urban anthem - it might be exactly the peacefully poetic "fight song" we need one to get us through these next few years.
