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.
We’re off this week, but if you missed last week’s memorial tribute to the late pianist Connie Crothers, head on over to our archives and check it out. Still no details on a memorial service, but watch this space and we promise to keep you in the loop. But the music rolls on and in these dwindling dog days of summer, so we have listings for you.
Drummer/percussionist Bobby Sanabria is at the Bronx Music Heritage Center for a free afternoon lecture/demonstration titled “La Clave: A Rhythmic Journey from Africa to the New World,” an interactive musical journey through the history and culture of the La Clave on the 29th. Details at their Facebook event page.
Guitarist Marc Ribot is at Three’s Brewing in Brooklyn with Vive Mechanique on the 30th.

That’s all for now. Suga’ in My Bowl is back on WBAI‘s airwaves on September 4. We’ll also have another edition of “On the Bandstand” online next Sunday with a fresh set of listings.
