Welcome to Suga in My Bowl radio‘s weekly feature, On The Bandstand, where we collect upcoming NYC area shows from current and past Suga’ guests. We’re online weekly and on the air on NYC’s WBAI-FM radio alternate Sunday nights from 11 PM -1 AM. Keep up with us via Facebook, the blog here, or our main website, or Twitter and we’ll keep track of the schedule for you.

This week’s show features vocalist Kurt Elling! You can catch him with the Bill Charlap Trio at the 92 St. Y on July 28. And we have more music for you this week as things slow down a little for the summer.

Blues vocalist Alexis P. Suter has a free outdoor show in Wagner Park near the Battery in Manhattan on July 30.
