The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

And Speaking of Comedy...

The Q's loving the awkward copy on the below sign heralding a comedy night at Bluebird's stellar cellar space. "Where Every Star's Ever Been Discovered." Y'all trying to trick us with that extra "ever?" I understand there's also a raga night that happens on Wednesdays. Anyone been and lived to tell? Maybe it's time for comedy and sitar to finally join forces. Check it out and holler back!

I've heard good things about the comedy night, but haven't attended.

I've been to the raga show on Wednesday a couple of times. It's a jam session centered around players of Indian classical instruments (e.g. tabla, sitar, etc.). Musicians of other traditions sit in (for instance, the last time I was there, there was a guy playing the West African harp called a kora). The first time I went, Grammy-nominated sarod player Aashish Khan was on hand, not playing but giving encouragement to those who were. It reminds me in spirit of the African jam sessions that used to take place at the St. Nick's pub in Harlem. Cover is 10 dollars.

Here are some photos I took of the raga event:

I'm the creator of that awkward copy...The idea of calling the show Big Break and tagging it with "Where every star's ever been discovered" is to make us sound like extra snarky pricks!

jus' bustin' yer balls, charlie. I'm thinking "Where Every Star Ever Has Been Discovered" makes more sense, but then again I've NEVER been a snarky prick so how would I know?
