Tonight: You Have Choices! James Maddock at Rockwood Stage 2 or The Golden Palominos at The Living Room

September 11, 2010

Tonight two excellent acts are playing at exactly the same time three blocks apart.  When confronted with a choice like this, just remember that whatever choice you make will be a good one.

Over at The Rockwood Music Hal Stage 2, you’ll find James Maddock playing his monthly full band show.  James is certainly a favorite around here.  He had a wonderful album out last year, Sunrise on Avenue C, and he is even better live.  In fact, last month James recorded a live album (due out mid-October) right here at  The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 with his band, Oli Rockberger (piano), John Shannon (guitar), Drew Mortali (bass), Aaron Comess (drums) and Leslie Mendelson (vocals and tambourine).  James’ shows are not only excellent musically, they are just plain fun.  This is a ticketed show ($10 advance $12 at the door) which Freddie Stevenson will open.

Or see The Golden Palominos at The Living Room.  This show was announced by The Living Room on Twitter only last night.  This lineup, Anton Fier, Syd Straw, Jody Harris, Robert Kidney, Amanda Kramer, Jim Campilongo, Tony Maimone and Tony Scherr is the updated version of the 1985-87 edition of this band which only came back together in May of this year for two performances (they also performed at City Winery last night).  What you’ll get from this band is excellent vocals from Syd Straw, top notch guitar playing all around and even a few songs in the electric blues vein led by Robert Kidney.  The Golden Palominos is also a band that other musicians love and the last time I saw them play there were a whole bunch of NIHE’s favorites in the audience.

Here’s the recap:

James MaddockThe Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Street (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), Doors 7pm, Freddie Stevenson opens at 8pm.  Tickets $10 advance /$12 at the door

The Golden Palominos, The Living Room, 154 Ludlow Street at Stanton Street (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 9pm (get there early as there will be a line), $15


Tonight: The Golden Palominos at The Living Room

May 11, 2010

Last Friday, the Syd Straw (1985-87) version of The Golden Palominos regrouped and performed for the first time in more than 20 years.  It was a great show with vocalist Syd Straw better than I’ve ever seen her and with guitarist Robert Kidney turning this rock band into a rousing electric blues band.

The audience was filled with other musicians: Steve Goulding (The Rumours/The Mekons/Garland Jeffreys/everyone who plays in NYC and needs a good drummer) was standing right in front of me, Rob Jost (Ursa Minor/Tony Scherr/Sasha Dobson/everyone who plays in NYC and needs a good bass player) was in the crowd and I’m pretty sure it was Maura Kennedy who ran past me with a camera at one point. I didn’t see Steve Wynn but he tweeted about the show.

This might be the final show for this lineup (Anton Fier, Syd Straw, Jody Harris, Robert Kidney, Amanda Kramer, Jim Campilongo, Tony Maimone and Tony Scherr) and if so, you really should get down to The Living Room tonight and see them.

The Golden Palominos, The Living Room, 154 Ludlow Street at Stanton Street (F or V Trains to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 9pm, $15


Photo Recap – The Golden Palominos at Le Poisson Rouge Friday, May 7th

May 8, 2010

Last night I attended the reunion of the late 1980s version of The Golden Palominos with Anton Fier, Syd Straw, Jody Harris, Robert Kidney, Amanda Kramer, Jim Campilongo, Tony Maimone and Tony Scherr.  It was a great show: Syd Straw turned in the best performance by her I’ve ever seen and Robert Kidney moved the band effortlessly from rock to electric blues.  Here are some shots taken last night by and courtesy of George Fiala:
