Tonight: Downtown Doubleheader

February 11, 2016

It’s supposed to be cold out there tonight. So bundle up and head downtown for this fine double shot of music.

Ann Bond

At the early hour of 7pm, 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.

Dina Regine Rockwood 4-22-15

Then it’s time to travel north and east to The Sidewalk Cafe at 6th Street and Avenue A to catch Dina Regine.  If it’s too cold to walk, just grab a cab.

Dina is a a photographer, a DJ and a musician.  Recently, she released a wonderful record, titled Right On, Alright.  That record is full of brand new songs that harken back to mid-60s rock, pop and soul.  Those songs are not slavish imitations, but heartfelt rechannelings brought into the present.

Tonight, at 8:30pm, Dina will be playing a short solo set of some of her songs, old and new.  If you’ve already heard Right On, Alright, you’ll no doubt want to be there.  If you haven’t, take this opportunity to discover this great NYC artist.

Tonight: Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain at The 11th Street Bar

February 10, 2016

11th Street Bar

The back area of The 11th Street Bar has hosted any number of wonderful shows over the years.  Leslie Mendelson, Freddie Stevenson and Julia Haltigan all played there regularly in years past (they all still play there, too, just not regularly anymore).  There’s still music at The 11th Street Bar nearly every night.  And tonight is no exception.

The show will start at 9pm.  Playing are Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain.  The stock in trade for both Ana and Mike is Americana.  I’ve seen Ana play in any number of configurations, from full band to solo, but I’m not sure in what format she will be playing tonight.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen Mike play, and I think that last time I saw him, he was playing with his previous band (Tandy).  Even so, both these musicians are well worth catching.

Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain, 11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street between Avenues A and 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), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)


Music Video: The Westies – Everything Is All I Want For You

February 9, 2016

Westies - Six on the Out

The Westies are a band based in Chicago.  They have a new album out, Six on the Out.  Here is a video of a song from that album, titled Everything Is All I Want For You.  You’ll note that the video is made up of lots of old silent movie clips.

Every so often The Westies travel east to New York City.  You’ll find them this Friday at The Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm.


Music Video: Bob Seger – Get Out of Denver

February 8, 2016

Bob Seger Get Out of Denver

Inspired by the Super Bowl.  I suppose that a song titled Get Out of Santa Clara would have been a better choice, but no such thing exists.

 


Today and Tonight: Music Before and/or Instead of Football

February 7, 2016

Football

Well, today is the Super Bowl.  If you want to see live music and see the game, there are a couple of afternoon shows I can recommend.  And if you don’t care to see the game, there is a show tonight you can see as well.

First up today is singer-songwriter Lianne Smith, a long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite.  Lianne writes literate, tuneful songs and plays them solo on her electric guitar.  You’ll find her playing at Mayflower Social in Clinton Hill at 2pm.

Over in Park Slope, you’ll find a special, extra early 3:30pm edition of The Radigan Roundup. This show is run by Terry Radigan on Sundays at  The 12th Street Bar and Grill.  As usually, Terry will play a short set and is joined today by Benjamin Cartel, Warren Malone, Gibson Malone, Paul Fairall , Steve Mayone, Kieran J. Mulvaney, Bev Grant and Shaky Dave.

Finally, tonight, at Tom Clark’s Treehouse at 2A, you’ll find Jack Grace and Jody Porter.  Starting at 8:45 pm, they will be holding down the fort in the East Village while a couple of football teams play the last game of the season in the San Francisco Bay area.

Lianne Smith, Mayflower Social, 132 Greene Avenue – enter on Waverly Avenue (G Train to Clinton-Washington Avenues), 2pm, No Cover
