Tonight: Dina Regine at The Rockwood Music Hall

Native New Yorker Dina Regine is a a photographer, a DJ and a musician.  Recently, she released a wonderful record, titled Right On, Alright.  That record is full of brand new songs that harken back to mid-60s rock, pop and soul.  Those songs are not slavish imitations, but heartfelt rechannelings brought into the present.

Tonight, at 10pm, Dina will bring that music onto the original stage of The Rockwood Music Hall.  Joining her will be an all star band which includes  Tim Luntzel, Jon Cowherd, Andrew Borger, Shaky Dave, Michelle Casillas, and Danny Ray.  For my money this is the place to be this Wednesday.

Dina Regine, 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)


Music Video: Mieka Pauley – Another Go

April 19, 2015

Mieka Pauley Rockwood 3-21-15

I suppose I’m late catching on to Mieka Pauley, but I’ve now seen her play a number of top notch shows.  As of late she’s been playing The Rockwood Music Hall monthly, as well as other clubs in NYC.  So today here’s Mieka at The Rockwood with a band last year, playing Another Go.  That song contains the line that she used to title her last album, The Science 0f Making Choices.


Tonight: Karla Moheno and Mieka Pauley at The Rockwood Music Hall

April 17, 2015

Karla Moheno 11-18-14 Rockwood 1

It’s yet another night to hang out at The Rockwood Music Hall.  There, at 8pm, you’ll find Karla Moheno playing rock, blues and ballads.  Her songs draw on a diverse set of influences including noir, 60s girl groups, a bit of country and some show music.  This melange served up by Karla and her band contains many familiar flavors presented in unexpected ways.  If you have yet to hear Karla’s music, tonight’s show should be the perfect introduction to it and her.

Mieka Pauley Rockwood 3-21-15

Also at The Rockwood tonight, at 10pm, you’ll find Mieka Pauley.  Mieka is an incisive writer, a powerful singer and a fine blues guitarist.  Whether she is singing her own songs or playing a few choice covers, you’ll find yourself moved by Mieka’s performance.  So take this opportunity to see her.

Karla Moheno (8pm), Mieka Pauley (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: Twinight Doubleheader at The Rockwood: The Westies and Jess Klein

April 16, 2015

The Westies Rockwood Stage 2 2-6-14

There’s an early and late show at The Rockwood Music Hall tonight that merits your attention.  At 7pm at the original Rockwood stage, The Westies, a Chicago-based band, will play a set.  At the suggestion of some friends, I saw The Westies for the first time last year, and was duly impressed.  They are tour behind their album, West Side Stories, released earlier this year.  The Westies are led by Michael McDermott, whose voice and songwriting are somewhat reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen.  Joining The Westies tonight will be guitar great Will Kimbrough (who will play his own set later at 9pm).

Jess Klein If Theres A God

I discovered Jess Klein a few years ago while going through the SXSW Torrent.  Her song Behind a Veil jumped out at me.  Seeing her live at SXSW confirmed that she is the real deal.  Jess and her music fit in the same neighborhood as Now I’ve Heard Everything favorites Amy Speace and Charlie Faye (and for a while, she was actually Charlie’s neighbor in Austin).  Take this opportunity to see Jess while she is in NYC, something that doesn’t happen often enough.  This show is a co-bill with Rod Picott.

The Westies, Rockwood Music Hall, 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)

Jess Klein, Rockwood Stage 3, 185 Orchard Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, $10, with a $10 drink minimum


Tonight: Mary Lee Kortes Sings Beulah Rowley at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3

April 13, 2015

Mary Lee Beulah Rowley

Tonight, Mary Lee Kortes will play selections from The Songs of Beulah Rowley.  Mary Lee explains:

I was on the road in the UK, thinking about my next record, wanting it to be different somehow, to incorporate other kinds of writing.  What would that mean, I wondered, drifting off to sleep in my favorite London hotel suite (that would be my friend Lizzie’s sofabed). I woke up to find someone named “Beulah Rowley” in my head — a regionally famous 1930s midwestern singer/songwriter. I wrote a song by her on the spot, finished my tour, came home and wrote her biography. And then a bunch more songs, by her of course.

If you’d like to sample some of these songs, you can stream them and even buy them here.  There’s a full album in the works, to be produced by Hal Willner.

Mary Lee Kortes plays The Songs of Beulah Rowley, Rockwood Stage 3, 185 Orchard Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 7pm, $15, with a $10 drink minimum
