Time Out New York Critic's Pick: Buster Keaton & RHR!

We're really excited about our performance this Sunday. We'll be playing our music to accompany Buster Keaton’s “The Playhouse” (1921) and “Cops” (1922), two of the most popular short comedies by the iconic silent film director and actor. Following the screenings, we'll play some of the new songs from our new album, Something More Sinister.

Time Out New York named this event a Critic's Pick this week, and it's featured in the Apr 7-13 issue on page 41 as part of "Your perfect weekend."




The show is presented by Jalopy Theater & School of Music, a celebrated mainstay of the city’s country, blues, folk, and jazz community located in Red Hook, Brooklyn. In 2008, the Village Voice named Jalopy the Best Old-Timey Venue in New York.

In the burlesque spirit of our new CD, Jalopy will kick off the show by screening a series of short burlesque clips from the silent era, accompanied by selections from Jalopy’s collection of vintage jazz recordings. Should be a great time!
