bandstand_picSuga in My Bowl radio presents a new weekly feature, On The Bandstand where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests.

Suga in My Bowl is off the WBAI airwaves this week for the last Sunday of the month, but set your alarm for next week, Sunday, October 5th when we’ll be back. This week’s light, music-wise but we dug up a few live music listings for you to look forward to.

Harpist Brandee Younger will be appearing at the reopened historic Minton’s in Harlem on October 5th with her band.

Drummer and percussionist Bobby Sanabria will be at the Nuyorican Poets’ Café with Eugene Marlow’s Heritage Ensemble on October 9th .

Bassist Mimi Jones will be appearing at the Upper West Side’s Bar Thalia on October 10th with her band.

Looking further ahead, pianist Onaje Allen Gumbs and drummer Michael Carvin will both have free concerts at the Newark Museum as part of WBGO Radio’s Kids’ Jazz series. Gumbs will appear on October 11th and Carvin will perform on October 18th. Note that while admission is free, you need to have a child with you.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI October 5th and we’ll have another edition of “On the Bandstand” on air and online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.

Hank Williams is an associate producer for Suga’ in My Bowl on WBAI Radio and webmaster for the Suga’ and Behind the Mic sites. He is also a PhD candidate in English and Africana Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center and teaches at Hunter and Lehman Colleges and The City College of New York.
