Today is Now I’ve Heard Everything’s fifth birthday. Through the opening and closings of venues and comings and goings of musicians over those five years, Now I’ve Heard Everything is still doing what it set out to do way back in 2009. Here’s what I said then:
What I will be doing here at Now I’ve Heard Everything (NIHE for short) is uncovering music and letting you know when I find something that I think is worthwhile. I’ll tell you about the musicians. I’ll post some videos for your viewing and listening pleasure, and I’ll highlight shows in the New York City area if you feel like partaking of live music yourself.
I promise you that NIHE will have its own point of view. You might find a “buzz” band here; but you’ll also find musicians who are great at what they do and have labored in the clubs but don’t get the recognition that they probably should get. You’ll find that NIHE will run the gamut from loud young rock bands to quieter singer-songwriters.
As long as you feel like reading in NIHE and I feel like writing it, it will continue to do what it has done over the past five years. Year six begins today.
