More shows, including one tomorrow.
June 26 – Candy and Women – Parkside Lounge – 11pm
Why not check out tonight’s edition of The Radigan Roundup. This show is run by Terry Radigan on Sundays at Park Slope’s 12th Street Bar and Grill. Terry is joined tonight by singer-songwriters Freddie Stevenson, Jessie Kilguss and Robin Aigner. At the Roundup, the music is usually stripped down and things are loose and spontaneous. Things will get going tonight at 7:30pm (despite what the graphic above says) and run through 9pm, but getting there early for a seat is not a bad idea.
The Radigan Roundup with Terry Radigan, Freddie Stevenson, Jessie Kilguss and Robin Aigner, 12th Street Bar and Grill, 1123 8th Avenue – enter on 12th Street, Park Slope (F Train to 7th Avenue, use the 8th Avenue exit), 7:30pm, No Cover, (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)
The Damnwells have an official video for their song Lost, which is on their self titled album released earlier this month. Even though I posted a stream for this song four months ago, I’m posted the video today because it’s a good one, and I really like this song.
There’s a very interesting double bill over in Noho at SubCulture tonight. Headlining will be long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Sasha Dobson. For this show she is stepping away from Puss n Boots, the band she is in with Norah Jones and Catherine Popper and which is getting ready to go on tour to open for Neil Young. Sasha will be playing her own songs, including those from her most recent album, Aquarius, released about two years ago.
Opening the show will be The Looking, which is a project of musician Todd Carter. Todd has taken traditional and folk songs such as All the Pretty Little Horses and 900 Miles, and recorded them with full bodied rock arrangements.
For years, Amy Rigby was a fixture on the New York music scene. At first she was in a cow punk band, but later rocked with the best of them (Linda Pitmon and Dave DeCastro of Steve Wynn and The Miracle Three were in Amy’s band before signing on with Steve). Even when Amy left NYC and lived in Nashville or Cleveland or Birmingham, she made sure to play NYC regularly.
About eight years ago, Amy moved to France and married Wreckless Eric. Together they put out three albums and toured every so often. But they finally left France and moved to New York State’s Hudson Valley.
Now, Amy and Eric, still together personally, have decided to go solo musically. And tonight, Amy plays the last of her four Thursday night shows at Hi-Fi Bar in the East Village. Here’s what Amy says is in store for us:
Returning to the old neighborhood, the scene of “Summer Of My Wasted Youth” New York’s East Village, to play a solo residency at the hospitable HiFi Bar. Four nights, four entirely different sets of old songs, new songs; 6 & 12 strings; white keys, black keys & the occasional musical guest. FREE or pay what you wish – see you there
Last week, Amy had musical guests Syd Straw and Lenny Kaye join her on Dancing with Joey Ramone. Surprises tonight? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
Here are two more shows next week.
