Alexa Wilkinson Plays 3 Shows in Town This Week

Alexa Wilkinson @ Mo PitkinsAlexa Wilkinson has been around for a while but I just got turned on to her over the summer. I caught her show at Mo Pitkins in June and thought she had a great stage presence. Not that age is necessarily a limiting factor but I haven't seen too many musicians this early in their career conect as well as Wilkinson did with the crowd.

Alexa WilkinsonIn terms of sound, I would compare Alexa Wilkinson to the best side of Shawn Colvin. Wilkinson has lately been on some high profile tours which have ranged from touring with Josh Kelley to this summer's Camplified tour (with The Kin and others). After this week in NYC, Alexa will be going on tour later this year with The Samples and Shannon McNally, from Oct. 20 – Nov. 7, hitting 14 cities along the east coast.

Monday Night's Show is at Mo Pitkins (East Village). Tickets are $8 and Alexa is playing at 10:30PM.

Wednesday Night's Show is at Rockwood Music Hall (LES). The show is at 7PM and admission is free.

Thursday Night's Show is at The Living Room. Alexa plays at 11PM and admission is free.

Alexa was recently featured on NY’s CW11 (WPIX-TV) on their “Spotlight On” series last Monday, Sept. 17th. If you missed it, the clip should be posted on CW11’s website in the next week or so.
