To add to the list of Irish imports to be thankful for, including St. Patrick’s Day, Guinness, and Sinéad O’Connor (debatable), The Guggenheim Grotto is a duo that brings a unique sound, with a concentration on piano-heavy instrumentals that support superb harmonies, to our side of the pond. While promoting their newest album, The Universe Is Laughing, they will be playing a weekly residency at The Bowery Electric in NYC every Wednesday in June (2, 9, 16, 23, 30). $10. Ages 18 and older.
