Lansing-Dreiden at the Starbucks Salon

by Peter Rojas

Lansing-DreidenI don't normally spend much time at Starbucks -- despite living a block away from one, I hardly ever go, mainly because I hardly ever drink coffee -- but I got sucked into going to one this evening with a free performance by Lansing-Dreiden at the Starbucks Salon on Greene St. here in Manhattan. The Starbucks Salon is a "pop-up" coffeeshop that'll only be there for a few weeks (replacing the pop-up Uniqlo shop that was there for a few months earlier this year), and they're doing their damndest to pull in the young urbanites with a ridiculously full schedule of free shows, readings, and performances. Apparently, it's working.
