Tonight: Bess Rogers Plays the Inaugural Show at The Bell House’s Frontier Room

March 22, 2011

Since The Bell House opened, the front room bar had neither a stage nor a name.  That’s now changed: a stage and sound system has been installed and the room is now officially The Frontier Room.  Tonight, Bess Rogers will be the first musical guest to headline at that new stage; Katie Costello and Rachel Platten fill out the bill.

If you don’t know Bess, you really should.  Her recent EP, playfully titled Bess Rogers Presents Bess Rogers, contains five well crafted songs. They run the the gamut from pop to rock to folk rock to pop punk.  And to top it all off, Bess has assembled a top notch band.  Still not convinced?  Here is a video of Come Home, a song from that EP.

Bess Rogers, The Bell House (Frontier Room), 149 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, Brooklyn (F or G Trains to 4th Avenue or R Train to 9th Street), doors 7:30 $10


Advance Planning: December Music Calendar

November 29, 2010

It’s time once again for the monthly calendar.  December looks pretty strong with good shows almost every night, and with some nights sporting two or three really good shows opposite each other.  When that happens, just pick one, because when you have multiple good choices, what ever choice you make will be a good one.

Things around Christmas and the week after have yet to be posted, but they will be, and this calendar will be updated periodically to include those shows.  I’m not including New Years Eve shows here, but will have a separate post about them later.
