Advance Planning: December 2014 Music Calendar

December 1, 2014

Calendar3

 

It’s time for the December Music Calendar.  The usual ground rules apply: listings on the calendar 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 usual, this calendar will be updated from time to time during the coming month.  Expect already announced New Years Eve shows to sell out, but some shows will be announced shortly and there will be some open houses around as well.  Meanwhile, get your calendars out and start planing December.

November starts on Friday, so here’s the Now I’ve Heard Everything Music Calendar for November, 2013.  This will be the first month without The Living Room open, and there does seem to be fewer shows announced so far.  Most events on the calendar are free or low cost and no shows having tickets starting at more than $40 are listed.  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: New Records in the Works

October 16, 2013

Secret Someones

Lelia Broussard, Zach Jones, Bess Rogers and Hannah Winkler toured together earlier this year and had such a great time doing it that they formed a band together: Secret Someones.  All three women contribute songs, take lead vocals and sing backup.  Instrumentally, it’s Bess on electric guitar, Lelia on bass, Hannah on keys, acoustic guitar and tambourine and Zach on drums.  Secret Someones will have an EP out next month, just in time for their show at The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on on November 14th and their tour of the East Coast.

And speaking of Secret Someones, Hannah Winkler currently has an EP of her own material in the works.  Hannah played a wonderful show last night at the subterranean Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 as part of the kick off of CMJ 2013.

AdamLevy02

Adam Levy and Rich Hinman have a joint show scheduled at The Rockwood Music Hall on Sunday, October 27th.  But that is not just a one off show.  This duo will be making a record together shortly, with Rich’s fellow Madison Square Gardener, Aaron Lee Tasjan producing.  Aaron previously produced an album with Adam.

calendar2

October is going to be a very busy month for music.  This year’s edition of the CBGB Festival runs from October 10 through the 12th, and CMJ starts just a few days later on the 15th and goes through the 19th.  I waited a bit longer than usual to get whatever CMJ info I could for the calendar, but there’s likely more info to come.  As always, I’ll be updating the calendar throughout the month.

News and Notes: Comings and Goings in 2012

December 26, 2012

Today, Now I’ve Heard Everything will take a look at the comings and goings in the New York music scene over 2012.  However, over the past year there were more goings than comings.

NIHE N Logo 2012Welcome: ZirZamin a new new music venue located at Houston Street and LaGuardia Place, the southeastern corner of Greenwich Village.  Although the name is Persian, ZirZamin (pronounced zir ZA min) is Austin-themed, as it is run by Paul Oviesi, who ran Momo’s a wonderful but now shuttered club in Austin.  The music space at ZirZamin is small, but in a cozy and not cramped way.  There’s some interesting food (brisket tacos!) as well.

NIHE N Logo 2012Closed:  Three music venues bit the dust in 2012: Southpaw in Park Slope, Zebulon in Williamsburg and The Lakeside Lounge in the East Village.  The story behind each of the closings vary, but rising costs and lessening income seem to be a common theme.

NIHE N Logo 2012Moved Away: This year Adam Levy, Harper Blynn and Sydney Wayser all moved their home base to LA.  Courtney Kaiser of KaiserCartel also moved from here, ending up in Michigan.  Reasons vary, but I worry that NYC has gotten  too expensive for anyone who is not wealthy to afford.

NIHE N Logo 2012R.I.P: Pete Fornatale, Levon Helm and Frank Christian.  NIHE covered the deaths of Pete and Levon (click on the links).  Frank, however, never got any coverage here.  He was a fine blues guitarist I used to follow back in the 80s, but I lost track of him.   I saw that he played a show at The Rockwood Music Hall this year, and I made a note to catch him the next time he played.  That never happened as he died suddenly just two days ago.
