We’re open regular store hours this week and next — selling books noon to six pm every day but Monday, with jazz at 6pm Fridays and late shows most Fridays from 8:30-10, jazz every Saturday evening from 7:30-9:30pm and live music most Sundays at 5pm (no music New Year’s Eve this year).
Donations to the store’s nonprofit “Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project” help to close the gap between audience revenues and the musicians’ guarantees. Do donate if you appreciate having a steady diet of live music in Glen Park at Bird & Beckett, and appreciate having a little bookshop in the neighborhood.
