Advance Planning: February 2016 Music Calendar Update (Added 2/10)

February 10, 2016

As a result of hearing the new CD coming from The Morning Sea, I’m adding their show on Friday to the calendar.  Hayes Carll also announced a couple of shows coming in May that I’m adding as well.

Feb. 12 – The Morning Sea (Album release show) – Rockwood Stage 2 – 8pm

Music Video: The Westies – Everything Is All I Want For You

February 9, 2016

Westies - Six on the Out

The Westies are a band based in Chicago.  They have a new album out, Six on the Out.  Here is a video of a song from that album, titled Everything Is All I Want For You.  You’ll note that the video is made up of lots of old silent movie clips.

Every so often The Westies travel east to New York City.  You’ll find them this Friday at The Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm.


Tonight: Bryan Dunn at The Rockwood Music Hall

February 6, 2016

Bryan Dunn 2015

Bryan Dunn is originally from Austin.  Bryan can be funny, sardonic or touching, and has a knack for telling stories in his songs; so much so that many of those songs can be classified as literature with a guitar.  Among Bryan’s repertoire tonight, you will no doubt hear songs from his last album, Sweetheart of the Music Hall and EP, Zapgun!  This is a band show; backing Bryan tonight will be The Esteemed Gentlemen (Andy Mac on percussion and vocals, Mark Marshall on guitar and Joe Brent on mandolin).

Bryan Dunn, The 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 recommended)

Advance Planning: February 2016 Music Calendar

February 1, 2016

Calendar 4

Since it’s February 1st, here is the February Now I’ve Heard Everything Music Calendar.  The usual ground rules apply: listings 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 always, this calendar will be updated from time to time during the coming month, both in a separate post and with updates on this calendar.

Tonight: Courtney Lee Adams Jr. at Hi-Fi and The After Party at Rockwood Stage 2

January 18, 2016

Choices Large

Here’s an early-late combination of shows.  At 8pm at Hi-Fi Bar, in the East Village on Avenue and 11th Street, you’ll find Courtney Lee Adams Jr.  Courtney’s songs are world weary and wise.  I think that the music of Tom Waits might be a good comparison.  But Courtney is less jarring, more tuneful and just more fun than Tom.

Later, on the Lower East Side, the latest installment of The After Party will commence at 11pm on Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 2The After Party is the latest in a line of shows at The Rockwood in which a large number of musicians get together and cover songs belonging to a given year.  Rumor has it that tonight’s year is 1996.  The After Party is scheduled to go late.  Yes, I know that even though today is a holiday, it’s a school night.  But if you are lucky enough to be able to stay out late, The After Party is always fun and surprising.

Courtney Lee Adams Jr., Hi-Fi Bar, 69 Avenue A between 10th and 11th Streets (Any train to 14th Street or L Train to 1st Avenue, then transfer to the 14 A bus to 11th Street), 8pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musician is highly recommended)

The After Party, Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 11pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)
