Ann Bond Poster

Tonight at 11:30pm, long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Julia Haltigan will once again play a show as Ann Bond.  Here’s what Julia has to say about it:

I’m very excited to share with you a fun side project I’ve been working on as my alter ego, Ann Bond! Some of you may know that I’ve been singing in the off broadway hit, Sleep No More. Crooning jazz standards is a ball and I’ve been inspired to develop the fun further bringing it back to prohibition era all the way through the late 50’s early 60’s. Performing as Ann Bond feat. Luther & The Missing Lynx, should inspire you to dust off your Henry Mancini records, order a dirty martini, bang the bongos and cha cha cha til you drop. Slip into something slinky, release your inner party animal and come misbehave with us in the basement of Rockwood Music Hall

Ann Bond featuring Luther & The Missing Lynx, Rockwood Stage 3, 185 Orchard Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 11:30pm, $10, with a $10 drink minimum

News and Notes: Misty Boyce Streaming at Starbucks; New Club Opens in The East Village

July 30, 2015

Misty Boyce Gramercy 5-14-15 3

Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Misty Boyce announced last week that Unsatisfied Mind, a song from The Life, her wonderful album released earlier this year, will be streaming at Starbucks during the month of October.  In addition, fans of Misty can also see her play a special show on line.  Those fans who are members of the forum on the fan run website Who Is Misty Boyce will be able to view Misty playing from her home via Concert Window on Sunday August 23rd at 5pm Eastern Time.

2A Bar

Long time readers of Now I’ve Heard Everything are well aware of East Village bar 2AThe Treehouse at 2A happens on its second floor every Sunday.  I’ve had reports over the past few months that something was going on in the basement of that place.  It turns out those reports were correct.  Earlier this week, a new club, Berlin, opened there.  Jesse Malin, who is involved in Berlin, was MC for the first show there which included Buster Poindexter and Ursa Minor.

 


Tonight: Karla Moheno and Freddie Stevenson at The 11th Street Bar

July 29, 2015

Karla Moheno 11-18-14 Rockwood 1

Yeah, there’s a big free concert outdoor show with The Mavericks up at Lincoln Center tonight.  But the weather outside has been forecast to be someplace between beastly and brutal.  So if you’re the type who likes to suffer for art, sure, you can go there.  But there is a wonderful, indoor, air conditioned show in the East Village that I hardily recommend.  It will take place at The 11th Street Bar just a few buildings down from the corner of Avenue A.  In the back of the bar at 9pm, you’ll find Karla Moheno.  Karla plays rock, blues and ballads.  Her songs draw on a diverse set of influences including noir, 60s girl groups, a bit of country and some show music.  This melange served up by Karla and her band contains many familiar flavors presented in unexpected ways.

Freddie Stevenson Rockwood 5-22-12

Following Karla at 10pm will be Freddie Stevenson.  Freddie was a regular on the New York music scene for years, playing mostly here and The Rockwood Music Hall.  That changed about 18 months ago when he hit the road with The Waterboys and then stuck around his native Edinborough.  Freddie’s back in New York now for a while.

Freddie’s original music has a little bit of everything in it including folk and English music hall, and he’s an engaging performer.  Tonight, Freddie will be joined by Jessie Kilguss on harmonium.  This is Freddie’s last scheduled show until September.

Karla Moheno (9pm), Freddie Stevenson (10pm), 11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street between Avenues A & B (any train to 14th Street, F Train to Delancey Street or L Train to 1st Avenue, then transfer to the 14 A bus to 11th Street), No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)

Advance Planning: August 2015 Music Calendar

July 28, 2015

Calendar3

The heat and humidity are here and August will be here in just a few days.  So here is the August Music Calendar. Of note during the month is The Brooklyn Country Music Festival being held at The Bell House on August 20th through the 23rd.

As for the calendar, the usual ground rules apply: listings are for venues in New York City and for bands that I can personally recommend or which I have reason to believe are worthwhile.  All shows listed here are free or have tickets which cost $40 or less. I’ve tried to list the set time for each band.  If all I have is a time when the show starts or when doors open, I’ll list that and so note it.  As always, this calendar will be updated from time to time during the coming month.
