Scott Metzger’s trio The Showdown Kids will play a show at City Winery in NYC on Tuesday Oct. 30 to celebrate the release of their new 10″ vinyl.
“There’s no drumming in it, so it’s very quiet,” Metzger recently said of The Showdown Kids. “Maybe I’m just getting older. But the older I get, the more I enjoy quiet music. And I’ve always been a huge fan of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, who were two musicians that played acoustic jazz in France in the 1940’s and ‘50s. And [this band is] sort of my attempt at playing in that style.”
Metzger, along with violinist Katie Jacoby and follow guitarist Simon Kafka, will take the stage at The Loft at City winery at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 30. Also appearing will be guitarist-composer Gyan Riley.
