Sally Shapiro Remix & An Awesome Weekend in NYC

A few days ago Sally Shapiro released "Remix Romance, Vol. 2," the first digital-only album to be released on Paper Bag Records' brand new digital label. Sally Shapiro's music is sweet, light and airy Swedish electronica/pop. The album is made up of remixes by other artists of her 2007 album, "Disco Romance." You can purchase the album online here. But in celebration of the album release, here is an mp3 for your listening pleasure:

In other news, this weekend I'm going to Boston to see Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls play with the Boston Pops Symphony. Should be great, but I have to say I'm kind of sad about all of the great stuff I'll be missing here in NYC. But for those of you still around, here are some of the things you might want to take advantage of:

Friday night:
~The Metropolitan Opera is performing for free in Prospect Park as part of Celebrate Brooklyn
~Ingrid Michaelson playing at Terminal 5
~Jukebox The Ghost at Union Hall (with openers Via Audio, whom I love too)

~The Mermaid Parade at Coney Island (possibly the last Mermaid Parade since this may be Coney Island's last season)
~The After The Jump Festival at Music Hall of Williamsburg, a great indie music festival (and the afternoon portion is free!). This year it's a lot earlier than last year, as last year it wasn't until August. Bummer for me.

Unfortunately, even if I was in New York, a lot of those events overlap, so I'd have to pick between them anyway. But hopefully some of you New York readers can get out and enjoy.
