Tonight: Spottiswoode at Joe’s Pub, My Pet Dragon at The Rockwood and Jeremiah Birnbaum at 2A

April 17, 2014

Choices Large

There are three shows I can recommend tonight.  If you want to make a long night of it (starting at 7pm and ending at 3am), you can actually catch all three.

First up is Spottiswoode And His Enemies. Spottiswoode has been a favorite around here, but hasn’t played NYC much recently.  That changes tonight as the band releases its new album, English Dream, which one reviewer has called darker and cinematic.  This show gets going at 7pm at Joe’s Pub.

Later, at 10pm, My Pet Dragon will play a set at the original Rockwood Music Hall.  MPD has blended some interesting sounds in the past, including 80s synth pop and U2-like anthemic songs.  Take this opportunity to check out Todd and Reena and see what they have up their collective sleeves.

Finally, for the late nighters among you, check out Jeremiah Birnbaum and Friends at 2A.  The theme for tonight is “Twistin’.”  I suppose at least some of the works of Chubby Checker will make an appearance at sometime between 11pm and 3am.

Spottiswoode and His Enemies, Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street between Astor Place and E. 4th Street (R Train to 8th Street, 6 Train to Astor Place),  7pm, $15

My Pet Dragon, Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)

Jeremiah Birnbaum and Friends, 2A,  25 Avenue A between Houston and 2nd Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit, F Train to Delancey Street or J Train to Essex Street), 11pm – 3am, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)

Tonight: Losers Lounge at Joe’s Pub, Benjamin Cartel at Rockwood Stage 2 or Mancie at Arlene’s Grocery

April 4, 2014

Choices Large

While tonight is not quite the everyone playing everywhere moment like last night, Friday night still has many things going on.

At Joe’s Pub, the latest offering from The Losers Lounge is Linda Ronstadt vs. Carly Simon in which an all star cast will present songs from these long time favorites. There are shows tonight (each a separate admission) at 7pm and 9:30pm.

A bit further downtown, Benjamin Cartel will play the record release show for his new one, Money & Love.  If you only know Benjamin from his previous incarnation as half of the lo-fi duo KaiserCartel be prepared to see a different side of him here.  Money & Love is a record which gets much inspiration from 60s and 70s pop and rock.  Benjamin will get going at 8pm.

Then at 9pm, just down the block and around the corner, Mancie, the Brooklyn-based garage/punk band whose EP Only the Wanted landed on the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Albums of 2012 list, will be playing at Arlene’s GroceryMancie features the insistent vocals of front woman Andrea Montgomery, smart songwriting and cover choices and lots of fuzz and reverb.  In other words, 100% of your recommended daily allowance of pure unadulterated rock n roll.

The Losers Lounge Presents: Linda Ronstadt vs. Carly Simon, Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette Street between Astor Place and E. 4th Street (R Train to 8th Street, 6 Train to Astor Place),  7pm and 9:30 (separate admissions), $25

There are a three shows over in Brooklyn which begin at 9pm.  At Skinny Dennis over in Williamsburg, North of Amarillo will feature Kelli Scarr on vocals as they play covers which include many from Emmylou Harris.  A few blocks away, Jeff Litman will be playing his power pop and rock songs with a full band at Spike Hill.  And also at 9pm, near the Myrtle-Willoughby stop on the G train, Megan Reilly will bring her atmospheric rock over to Beast of Bourbon.

Advance Planning: February 2014 Music Calendar

January 27, 2014

Calendar3

February starts this coming Saturday, so for all you advance planners out there, here is the Now I’ve Heard Everything Music Calendar for February, 2104.  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, I’ll list that and so note it.  And as always, this calendar is a work in progress and will be updated from time to time during the month.

Music Video: Laura Cantrell – Can’t Wait

January 23, 2014

Laura Cantrell Cant Wait

Laura Cantrell has a brand new album, No Way There From Here coming out next week, and a record release show at Joe’s Pub next Wednesday, January 29th.  No Way There from Here marks Laura’s shift from interpreter to singer-songwriter, with 11 of that record’s 12 songs written or co-written by Laura.

Here’s a video of Can’t Wait from No Way There from Here.  Laura wrote this song with Amy Allison and plays it here with her frequent collaborator Mark Spencer in Glasgow last October.  Thanks to MissOhio1000 who was there to capture this.
