Tonight: Some Big Shows Are Sold Out But Here Are Two Excellent Ones You Can Still See

July 15, 2014

Choices Large

If you don’t already have a ticket for tonight’s Puss n Boots Record Release Show at The Bell House or the Camera Obscura and Laura Cantrell double bill at Le Poisson Rouge, you are probably out of luck, because they are both sold out.  My friend Tim swears that he gets into every sold out show he wants to by getting to the venue early and waiting at the box office for either the venue to make more tickets available or getting a ticket from someone who is trying to get rid of one at the last minute.  Your mileage may vary, of course.

Michaela Anne

But fear not, because there are two more really good shows over at The Rockwood Music Hall tonight as well.  First up, at 9pm will be Michaela Anne.  I just can’t say enough good things about her new record, Ease My Mind.  Michaela’s music lies someplace between country, blues, Americana and folk.  And Ease My Mind frequently reminds me of some of the more Americana-ish offerings of The Grateful Dead and/or Bob Dylan.  And even the New York Times likes her!

Nick Africano

Stick around The Rockwood until 11pm, when Nick Africano will take the stage. This is week three of Nick’s five week Tuesday residency at The Rockwood. Nick has promised a different band and a different set each night, so if you’ve seen him before, you can check him out again.  Nick is always melodic and soulful.  Joining him as his band tonight will be Jessica Lynn, Sam Weber and Avi A. Amon.

Michaela Anne (9pm), Nick Africano (11pm), The Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)


Tonight: Elizabeth and The Catapult at Rockwood Stage 2 and Laura Cantrell at The 11th Street Bar

July 13, 2014

Elizabeth Trying to Break Your Heart

This summer Sunday night is not sleepy at all.  There are two good shows tonight and they time out so that you can see both of them.

The first show is an early one, at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2.  There at 7pm, Elizabeth and The Catapult will play.  You can expect keyboard based idiosyncratic classical tinged pop and songs from the this year’s Elizabeth and The Catapult album, Like It Never Happened, as well as Elizabeth’s earlier songs.  You may also hear a cover or two and whatever else Elizabeth has up her sleeve.

Radio Free Song Club - Laura Cantrell 2

Once Elizabeth and the band finish, go north to 11th Street.  You’ll find the 11th Street Bar just east of Avenue A.   Laura Cantrell will be playing a set with Mark Spencer.  Laura has two big shows coming up this week, opening for Camera Obscura.  But you can see her tonight in a much more intimate setting.

Elizabeth and The Catapult, Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 7pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)

Laura Cantrell with Mark Spencer, 11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street between Avenues A &B (Any train to 14th Street or L Train to 1st Avenue, then transfer to the 14 A bus to 11th Street), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)

Tonight: Aaron Lee Tasjan at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3

July 6, 2014

Aaron Lee Tasjan

Aaron Lee Tasjan is back in town from East Nashville where he moved last year.  Aaron’s a great songwriter and guitar player, and this set, which starts at 9:30pm, will be well worth your while. He’s been on the road lately, playing with such guitar greats as Chuck Prophet and Steve Wynn.   Aaron  released Crooked River Burning, a new EP on the Rockwood Music Hall Recordings label, earlier this year, which promptly went to #1 on the iTunes Singles/EP chart.

Joining Aaron tonight will be Caleb Caudle.  I’ve not seen Caleb live yet, but from the tracks of his I’ve heard, impresses me as a gifted singer and songwriter in the Greg Trooper mold.

Aaron Lee Tasjan (with Caleb Caudle), Rockwood Stage 3, 185 Orchard Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 9:30pm, $10, with a $10 drink minimum
