Tonight: Misty Boyce on Live on Your Computer via Concert Window

January 27, 2015

Misty Boyce Rockwood May 2013 2 crop

It’s still snowing as I write this on Tuesday morning, but the “storm of historic proportions” has been downgraded to the snow of the week.  Things are starting to get back to normal, and I would guess that much (although perhaps not all) of what was planned tonight will go on.  But it’s still really cold and icy out there, so I’m going to suggest staying home and checking out some live music via your computer.

Singer-songwriter Misty Boyce, a long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite is playing a show tonight via Concert Window.  Misty has just released The Life, her second full length record.  Misty plays guitar, piano and is an accomplished vocalist with a wide ranging voice.  She’s made large numbers of fans in New York City during her time here, and has made many more playing with Sara Bareilles  over the past two years.  Misty now lives in Los Angeles, so this is a great opportunity to see her.  And no cold weather gear is necessary.  The show starts at 8:30pm.

Misty Boyce on Concert Window, 8:30pm, pay something but pay what you wish

Tonight: Rosie Flores at Hill Country NY

January 26, 2015

Rosie Flores 1

UPDATE: This show has been canceled because of the blizzard.

Rosie Flores is in town tonight at Hill County NY.  If you’ve ever heard Rosie, you’ll be there.  If you are unfamiliar with her, here’s the pertinent info; Rosie is based in Austin, a town where rock, Americana and alt country all seem to blend together.  Rosie herself plays country/alt country/electric blues/rock n roll and rockabilly in a style that can sometimes even call to mind Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Although no stranger to New York (the photo above was taken when she dropped in on Li’l Mo and The Monicats on night a few years back), Rosie is not here often enough. So take this opportunity to see her.  Of course all this assumes that the weather is not totally horrible, that mass transit is running, and that the show goes on.  You should probably check the latest forecast and with the MTA and Hill County NY before you venture forth.

Rosie FloresHill County NY, 30 W. 26th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway (F, M or R Trains to 23rd Street), 9pm (For dinner reservations, please call 212-255-4544, and let the host know you would like to be seated in the music area), No Cover

Field of Stars Jan 25 2015

On the last Sunday of the month, Tom Clark, who runs  The Treehouse at 2A, turns the programming over to Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin.  The result is the series called the Field of Stars (originally held at the late and lamented Banjo Jim’s).

Tonight’s show consists of four singer-songwriters: Alex Battles, Emily DuffJim Petrie and Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin (of course) sitting around singing at the comfortable, homey Treehouse (the upstairs at 2A).

Alex Battles, Emily DuffJim Petrie and Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin, Treehouse at 2A, 25 Avenue A at 2nd Street (F Train to Delancey Street or 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit or J or M Trains to Essex Street), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)

Music Video: Kristin Diable – Time Will Wait

January 24, 2015

Kristin Diable Rockwood 1-20-15 2

I saw Kristin Diable play two tremendous shows over the past 10 days (the photo above is from her show at The Rockwood Music Hall).  The songs she played were from her album Create Your Own Mythology which will be released on February 24th.  So here is the first song let loose on the Internet from that album.  It’s titled Time Will Wait and it’s already a favorite of mine.


News and Notes

January 23, 2015

45sGraham Parker and the Rumour will be releasing a new album in 2015 according to Rumour member Martin Belmont.  Dawes has said that those who are looking for new music from them this year will not be disappointed, so it looks like that band has a new record on the way too.  Finally, although Modern Blues, the new album from The Waterboys was released in much of the world earlier this week, it will not be released in the US until April 7th.

45sJoy Askew has a show coming up at The Rockwood Music Hall in February.  At that show she’ll have a new band with her consisting of Grey McMurray, Josh Dion and Rob Jost.

 

45sJulia Haltigan will be play a number of shows in a duo with her dad Emmet in March and April.  Look for those show to take place at The Rockwood Music Hall.

 

45sLong time Rockwood Music Hall  staple Freddie Stevenson has spent the last year living in Scotland.  I’m hearing that he may be back in NYC this spring, which is great news, because he has been missed.
