Tonight: Secret Someones at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

July 31, 2013

Secret Someones Poster

Lelia Broussard, Zach Jones, Bess Rogers and Hannah Winkler toured together earlier this year and had such a great time doing it that they decided to form a band.  That band is named Secret Someones and they play their first show ever tonight at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2.  If you’ve ever wished that you could have been there for the first gig of Crosby Stills Nash and Young or Blind Faith, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor on the music world’s latest super group.

Secret Someones, Rockwood Stage 2, 196 Allen Street near Houston Street (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 9pm, No Cover  (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)

July 30, 2013

Mancie

Mancie, the Brooklyn-based garage/punk band whose EP Only the Wanted landed on the Now I’ve Heard Everything Best Albums of 2012 list, will be playing the release show for the brand new video for their song, Hey Brooklyn, tonight.   Mancie features the insistent vocals of front woman Andrea Montgomery, smart songwriting and cover choices and lots of fuzz and reverb.  In other words, 100% of your recommended daily allowance of pure unadulterated rock n roll.

Mancie, The Delancey, 168 Delancey Street between Clinton and Attorney Streets in the shadow of The Williamsburg Bridge (F Train to Delancey Street or J or M Train to Essex Street), 8:40pm, $10

Advance Planning: August 2013 Music Calendar

July 29, 2013

calendar2

Here’s the August, 2013 Now I’ve Heard Everything Music Calendar.  Most events on the calendar are free or low cost and no shows having tickets starting at more than $40 are listed.  August begins with a big night, and then looks to be a little thinner than usual.  We’ll see if that’s so, because, as always, there are shows yet to be announced. As those additional shows are made public during the month they will be noted in a separate post and also added here.

News and Notes

July 28, 2013

News on the recording front:

NIHE N Logo 2012Harper Blynn have posted a YouTube teaser video for their apparently soon to be released album. It consists of the intro to a new song, apparently titled Go.  I’m sure we’ll learn more about the new record between now and the next time Harper Blynn hit NYC, which is October 4th.
NIHE N Logo 2012Jay Stolar will be be releasing his first album soon.  There will be a fund raiser (using Kickstarter, Pledge Music, Indiegogo or the like) to get that to happen.

NIHE N Logo 2012Misty Boyce will also be doing a fund raiser for her next album, the full length follow up to her self-titled record released in 2010.  Misty is planning to record in the UK with producer David Lynch (who is not the director of Twin Peaks).


Tonight: Jay Stolar at The Mercury Lounge

July 27, 2013

Jay Stolar

Jay Stolar plays the kind of music that was called blue eyed soul back in the 60s and which made Hall and Oates a big selling act in the late 70s and early 80s.  Jay plays with a talented top notch band.  He’s also in demand as a sideman and recently toured with Alexz Johnson and Misty Boyce, playing with them as well as being a supporting act on that tour.

In the past Jay tended to play very late shows here in New York City: he was frequently playing the 1am slot at The Rockwood Music Hall.  Tonight, though, Jay and his talented band will play The Mercury Lounge at the much more convenient time of 9pm.  Take this opportunity to check out Jay’s soulful tunes.

Jay Stolar, Mercury Lounge, 217 East Houston Street between Ludlow and Essex Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit, F Train to Delancey Street or J or M Trains to Essex Street), 9pm, $12
