In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a thriving music scene in Nyack. Main Street is abuzz every weekend. And I don’t just mean those louts hogging the sidewalk in front of Casa del Sol and Pour House. There’s quality music happening inside. It’s loud, it’s brash, it’s often silly, but many of the bands feature brilliant players and quality singing and songwriting, and the crowd is like Nyack itself — a big tent: the young and hip rubbing up against the old and chatty; and no one’s too cool for a trip to the dance floor. Look for more articles here exploring the bands and musicians of today’s Nyack music scene. Today I’m going to focus on Thursday. Thursday night’s a night for taking chances, when it feels like nobody’s watching and, for better or worse, anyone can take the mic. It’s not packed, it’s not dead, things are just warming up for the weekend. It’s raw, it’s unrehearsed, it’s loose. It’s Thursday.
