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: Five Shows to Mix and Match

December 15, 2015

Choices Large

The choice sign is back as tonight offers five shows.  They are all over the map, both musically and geographically.

In Brooklyn Heights, at 7:30pm, The Sirens of Brooklyn Choir will be singing Christmas carols and other holiday songs at the historic Plymouth Church Brooklyn. This choir is made up of New York based indie songstresses.  The music on the menu includes a mix of traditional Christmas carols and Bulgarian and Austrian carols.  Tickets will be $15 at the door and all proceeds go to ECPAT-USA, a non-profit whose mission is to end human trafficking and slavery at the source.

On the other side of the East River, The Rockwood Music Hall will present a nice double bill beginning at 8pm.  First up will be Jeff Litman playing a full band show.  Jeff plays rock and power pop, and his 2015 EP, Primetime, was one of Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Best Albums of 2015.  At 9pm, versatile singer-songwriter Sasha Dobson will grace the Rockwood stage.  I’m not sure what Sasha has in store for us tonight, but she can sing and play anything from jazz to rock to alt country.

Over in Williamsburg at 9:30, you’ll find Karla Rose and The Thorns at The Grand Victory.  Karla’s 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.

Finally, Julia Haltigan will be playing at The Manderley Bar at the McKittrick Hotel on the western edge of Chelsea.  Julia and her full band be playing Julia’s original songs and will rock your socks off, beginning at 10:15pm.

Sirens of Brooklyn Choir with Joy Askew, Elizabeth Ziman, Lauren Balthrop, Kelli Scarr and many more, Plymouth Church Brooklyn, 75 Orange Street (2 or 3 Trains to Clark Street or A or C Trains to High Street), 7:30pm, $15

Jeff Litman (8pm), Sasha Dobson (9pm), 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 contributions for the musicians is highly recommended)

Karla Rose and The Thorns, The Grand Victory, 245 Grand Street between Driggs Avenue and Roebling Street (L Train to Bedford Avenue or G Train to Metropolitan Avenue), 9:30pm, $10

Julia Haltigan, Manderley Bar at the McKittrick Hotel, 532 West 27th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues (C or E Trains to 23rd Street or 1 Train to 28th Street), 10:15pm


Tonight: Dueling Extravaganzas (Choose One)

December 8, 2015

Choices Large

You pay your money and you take your choice goes the saying.  And that’s the story for tonight with two multi-artist, over the top shows on tap.

The first is a benefit show presented by Fieldhouse Music, a music production company specializing in discovering and promoting new talent for film and television soundtracks.  The show is in support of Arteamor, an organization which provides arts workshops to children who live in extreme poverty, in dangerous surroundings, are orphaned, are or have been victims of sexual or physical abuse and/or are at risk for living a life of crime and drug abuse.  The show is at Rockwood Stage 2 beginning at 7:00pm and features Anna Rose, Jared Mahone, Jamie Rae, Bess Rogers, Ryan Doyle, Shira Elias, Mike Grubbs, Chris Ayer, B-Ski, Bryan Dunn, Jay Stolar, Brandi Thompson, Caleb Hawley, Andi Rae Healy, Wes Hutchinson, Sam Bisbee, Justin Bohr, Brooklyn Sugar Company, Sicily Knight, Toby Lightman, Jeff Litman, Bluebirds of Paradise and John Schmitt.

Over the river, at 8:30pm in the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn, Sasha Dobson is curating A Night to Remember at The Bell House.  Joining Sasha tonight will be Pat Irwin, DJ Nappy G, Corn Mo, Todd Carter, The Tall Pines, Dred Scott, Neal Miner, Tom Beckham, J. Walter Hawkes, Danielle Schultz, Kyle Paas, Joel Hamilton, Mauro Refosco, So Brown, Chris Bergson, The Slim Kings, Elizabeth and The Catapult, Chris Cubeta, Van Hayride, Minnie Tonka, The Pre-War Ponies and more.

Advance Planning: November 2015 Music Calendar

November 1, 2015

Calendar3

It’s November, so here is the Now I’ve Heard Everything Music Calendar for this month.  Here are the usual ground rules: 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 (but I’ll include some higher priced New Year’s Eve Shows as well). 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.
