Advance Planning: September 2014 Music Calendar Update (Added 9/27)

September 27, 2014

Here are more shows on Sunday and Monday.  The Lucinda Williams performance at Rough Trade on Monday night is good for those who have the time to get to Williamsburg early enough to get a wristband.

Sept. 28 – Li’l Mo and The MonicatsTreehouse at 2A – 10pm

Sept. 29 – Lucinda WilliamsRough Trade – 6:30pm – Purchase the new Lucinda Williams album Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone on 9/29 starting at 11am to receive one wristband good for entry to the in-store show that evening.


Tonight: Drina Seay at The Way Station

September 19, 2014

Drina Seay

I first saw Drina Seay (pronounced Sea) at the late, lamented Banjo Jim’s a few years back, mostly singing wonderful harmonies with the likes of Li’l Mo and The Monicats.  Drina has been playing and singing her own  Americana and alt country songs for a while now.  Tonight you’ll find Drina, backed up by Li’l Mo, Homeboy Steve and Eric Seftel at The Way Station, that friendly Dr. Who themed bar in Prospect Heights.  Drina goes on at 9pm.  If you’ve never either see Drina or The Way Station remedy that oversight in your life tonight.

Drina SeayThe Way Station, 683 Washington Avenue between Prospect Place and St. Marks Avenue (2 or 3 Train to Eastern Parkway – Brooklyn Museum or C Train to Clinton – Washington), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)


Tonight: Rosie Flores at The Knitting Factory

September 16, 2014

Rosie Flores 1

Rosie Flores is in town tonight at The Knitting Factory.  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.

Rosie Flores, The Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Avenue at Havemeyer Street, Williamsburg (G Train to Metropolitan Avenue or L Train to Lorimer Street), $15, doors 8pm / show 8:30pm


Advance Planning: September 2014 Music Calendar

August 28, 2014

Calendar3

September will be here before we know it and so here is the monthly music calendar for September 2014.  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: Drina Seay at The Treehouse at 2A

August 17, 2014

Drina Seay

I first saw Drina Seay (pronounced Sea) at the late, lamented Banjo Jim’s a few years back, mostly singing wonderful harmonies with the likes of Li’l Mo and The Monicats.  Drina has been playing and singing her own material (which consists of  Americana and alt country) for a while now.  Tonight you’ll find Drina, backed up by Li’l Mo and Homeboy Steve at the intimate and cozy Treehouse at 2A.  Drina goes on at 9pm, but the seats at The Treehouse go quickly so getting there earlier would not be a bad idea.

Drina Seay, Treehouse at 2A, 25 Avenue A at 2nd Street (F Train to Delancey Street or 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit, but note that the uptown F is not stopping at these stations), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)
