Advance Planning: January 2015 Music Calendar

December 30, 2014

Calendar3

 

It’s time for the January Music Calendar.  The usual ground rules apply: listings on the calendar 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.

Today and Tonight: Three Acoustic Shows with Alex Battles, Emily Duff and Jahn Xavier

December 21, 2014

Choices Large

The choice sign is up today.  But instead of a number of shows playing opposite each other, today there are three shows all in a row.  Starting at 4pm, over in Brooklyn’s Greenwood Heights (that’s just south of the western part of Park Slope), you’ll find Alex Battles and his guitar in the front room of Freddy’s Bar.  Alex writes songs about life, particularly songs about life in New York City (if you’ve never heard You Live in Queens, check it out here).

Once Alex is finished, grab some dinner and travel to the Lower East Side.  There, at The Treehouse at 2A, you’ll find a wonderful double bill, with both musicians stepping away from their bands and playing solo.  First up tonight is Emily Duff.  Emily has been described as a cross between Patti Smith and Steve Earle.  She writes top notch songs and sings them with heart.  Once Emily is finished, Jahn Xavier will take the stage. Jahn’s music is intelligent, rocking and soulful. If you’ve ever seen him, you already know that Jahn is a force of nature.

Alex Battles, Freddy’s Bar,  627 5th Ave between 17th and 18th Streets, Brooklyn (R Train to Prospect Avenue), 4pm, No Cover

Emily Duff (9pm), Jahn Xavier (10pm), Treehouse at 2A, 25 Avenue A at 2nd Street (F Train to Delancey Street or 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)

Advance Planning: October 2014 Music Calendar

September 29, 2014

Calendar3

October is going to be a very busy month for music.  This year’s edition of the CBGB Festival runs from October 8th through the 12th, and CMJ starts on the 21st and goes through the 25th.  I waited a bit longer than usual to get whatever CMJ info I could for the calendar, but there’s likely more info to come.

The usual ground rules apply: listings on the calendar 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.

Tonight: The Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan Christmas Special at Freddy’s Bar

December 20, 2012

Lenny Bob Xmas Freddys

If you are not going to see Leonard Cohen at Barclays Center tonight, the fine folks at Freddy’s Bar in Brooklyn’s Greenwood Heights have something quite interesting for you in its place.  Here’s their description of tonight’s Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan Christmas Special:

We threw Bob in the mix, as he played the Center on 11/21, plus we just like the idea of his songs mixed in with Leonard’s.  It will cost you a lot less than the Barclays’ show (as in, it’s free!), and the drinks and food are cheaper and better.  So come on down and raise a holiday toast to the two septuagenarians and share in some holiday cheer.  A Night of Cohen & Dylan Covers sung by our favorite local bands with Comedy skits imtertwined from our favorite local comedians.

Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan Christmas Special, Freddy’s Bar,  627 5th Ave between 17th and 18th Streets, Brooklyn (R Train to Prospect Avenue), 8:30pm, No Cover
