I can always find something to do on any given night of the week, I mean, that's why I'm here in the first place, right? But some weeks are better than others and I find myself having to sit out good stuff because I can't wait for other good stuff. Case in point, I skipped the very compelling Leggy show because I knew I was going to go out tonight for Lady Lamb. Formerly known as Lady Lamb & the Beekeeper, indie singer-songwriter Aly Spaltro has this incredible vocal range and her albums are all so good, including her latest, "Even in the Tremor," which has some soft moments, but also interesting melodic choices that any fan of St. Vincent would love. It's a tough call, because I love Bayonne, too, but you'd be wise to catch Lady Lamb at Soda Bar tonight. As mentioned, Bayonne (as covered in our feature this week) is at Casbah, Marcia Ball kicks of Gator By the Bay, and local rockers Rhinoceros III play Bar Pink.
