• Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra


Show: Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra has long been inspired by the Ex, and on Kollaps Tradixionales they convincingly transplant the spirit of those Dutch iconoclasts into songs that trade melodic intensity for frenetic art-punk rhythms.

Dinner: Julius Meinl A classy place for those of moderate means, this is the first American outpost for Viennese coffee purveyor Julius Meinl. The coffee is made from beans roasted in Austria; strong but not acidic, it’s superb. The menu’s tasty cafe fare.
