Dawes I Cant Think About It Now Live

Dawes has a new album, All Your Favorite Bands, coming out in early June.  They will be playing Central Park Summerstage on July 27th, with the tickets for that show going on sale today at Noon.  So here’s a live version of I Can’t Think About It Now, a song from that new album.  It was recorded about six months ago and has a wonderful guitar solo from Taylor.  Many thanks to John Fenwick for capturing this.

Advance Planning: April 2015 Music Calendar

March 30, 2015

Calendar3

No fooling: Wednesday is April and therefore here’s the April Music Calendar.  It’s a pretty good month for music.  Steve Wynn will play with his long time band The Miracle 3 for the first time in a couple of years.  Amy Speace is in town for three shows next week.  And of course, that’s just the tip of the musical iceberg.  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 usual, this calendar will be updated from time to time during the coming month.

Music Video: Dawes – Things Happen (Live)

February 17, 2015

Dawes Todos Santos 2015

Here’s a video of Dawes at the Todos Santos Music Festival last month, which was held in Totos Santos, Mexico.  This is a new song from the band titled Things Happen.  This show happened at the Hotel California.  Unlike the one in the Eagles‘ song, Dawes was able to check out.  Good thing, because they have an album due out later this year.  Many thanks to eckythump74 who was on hand to capture this.


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.


Music Video – Dawes – Hey Lover (Blake Mills Cover)

August 18, 2014

Dawes Hey Lover

Here’s a music video to start off the week.  It’s from Dawes – at least the acoustic version of that band – and they cover Blake Mill‘s Hey Lover.  There are some nice harmonies here.  Many thanks to Kevin Ihle who shot this high quality video.
