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: Tony Scherr and Jim Campilongo at The Rockwood Music Hall

August 25, 2014

Tony Scherr

If you are a musician in New York City, you’ve definitely heard of Tony Scherr, and probably, at one time or another, played with him.  The list of people who Tony has played with includes Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Norah Jones, and Ana Egge.  Tony is also a member of the band Ursa Minor.

But tonight, like he has on so many Monday nights before, Tony will set up at The Rockwood Music Hall and play guitar for an hour with Rob Jost on bass and Anton Fier on drums.  You can expect to hear crunchy guitar parts, slide work and extended jams.  But there can be more introspective numbers too: I’ve even seen Tony unplugged his electric guitar for a quiet song.

 

Campilongo cutdown

After Tony and his trio finish their set, Jim Campilongo will continue his long running Monday night residency as well.  Joining Jim tonight, will be Hagar Ben Ari on bass and Josh Dion on drums.  These Monday night sessions are an exploration of the instrumental side of music, a jazz approach to rock, if you will.  Jim is a master of the Telecaster, and you will be amazed at what he can do with it.

Tony Scherr Trio with Anton Fier and Rob Jost (9pm), Jim Campilongo Trio with Hagar Ben Ari, Josh Dion (10pm), 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: Lots Going On at The Rockwood Music Hall

August 22, 2014

RockwoodIf you want to see some live music tonight, the place to be is The Rockwood Music Hall.  At 7:30pm, My Pet Dragon will play a set at Rockwood Stage 2.  MPD has blended some interesting sounds in the past, including 80s synth pop and U2-like anthemic songs.  Take this opportunity to check out the husband-wife team of Todd Michaelsen and Reena Shah and see what they have up their collective sleeves.

At 10pm, Fife & Drom, another band led by a husband-wife team (Abby Ahmad and Mark Marshall)  will take the stage next door at the original Rockwood Music Hall.  Fife & Drom play blues and rock.  You can expect to hear songs off of the band’s album, Introducing Fife & Drom, as well as  some thoughtfully chosen covers.

Stick around after Fife & Drom, because immediately following them at 11pm is Rony’s Insomnia.  RI is a rock band led by Rony Corcos, who landed in New York City after growing up in Israel and spending some time in London.  If you are looking to hear something new, this is the band to check out.

My Pet Dragon (7:30pm), Rockwood Stage 2, Fife & Drom (10pm), Rony’s Insomnia (11pm), Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), No Cover (but contribution for each of the bands is highly recommended)

Tonight: James Maddock at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

August 21, 2014

James Maddock - Nearest Thing to Hip

Tonight long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite, folk-rocker James Maddock,  will lead his band into The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2.   You will hear songs taken from James previous albums (Sunrise on Avenue C, Wake Up and Dream and Another Life) and from his album with the band Wood (Songs from Stanford Hill).  You will probably also  hear some previews of songs from James next album, The Green, which is currently in production. This show will start at 7:30pm and finish no later than 9pm, so if getting home at a reasonable hour is important to you, this show will fill the bill.

James MaddockRockwood Music Hall Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 7:30pm, $25


Tonight: Elizabeth and The Catapult at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

August 16, 2014

Elizabeth Catapult Mercury Lounge

Even though it’s August and a helluva lot of people are out of town (hey, I can even park in my own neighborhood for the next two weeks!), Elizabeth and The Catapult are playing three shows during the rest of the month at The Rockwood Music Hall (tonight and August 30th on Stage 2 and August 20th on Stage 3).  You can expect keyboard based idiosyncratic classical tinged pop, songs from the recently released Elizabeth and The Catapult album, Like It Never Happened, and some inspired covers as well.  I never leave one of Elizabeth’s shows without having being uplifted by the music.  And this is an early show, so those of you who don’t want to stay out too late can take advantage of it.

Elizabeth and The Catapult, Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 8pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)
