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.

Suga’ in My Bowl is off the air this week: we’ve been pre-empted for WBAI’s Spring Fund Drive. We’ll be back (for sure this time) on June 14. To get your fix until then, check out our our audio archives which includes our last show with pianist/keyboardist Marc Cary. Meanwhile, let’s take a look at some upcoming gigs.
