Tonight: North of Amarillo at Skinny Dennis or The Balladeers at 11th Street Bar

August 5, 2015

Choices Large

Here are two shows, both with the starting time of 9pm.  One’s in Williamsburg, the other is on the Lower East Side.

North of Amarillo, a band with Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Kelli Scarr on lead vocals, will play  Skinny Dennis in Williamsburg tonight starting at 9pm.  Inspired by the music of Emmylou Harris, North of Amarillo pays tribute to her classic songs and arrangements along with a mix of originals and other country favorites. In addition to Kelli, NOA features Luca Benedetti and Jason Loughlin on Telecaster Guitars, Jonny Lam on Pedal Steel Guitar, Scott Colberg on Bass and Arthur Vint on drums.

On the Lower East Side, The Balladeers – Ana Egge, John Kengla and Rob Heath – will play at The 11th Street Bar.  The last time this group was around, it was billed as Ana Egge and The Ohiomen.  Whatever the billing, you can expect to hear Ana’s original songs in a set of Americana roots rock.

North of Amarillo, Skinny Dennis, 152 Metropolitan Avenue at Berry Street (G to Metropolitan Avenue, L to Bedford Avenue or Lorimer Street), No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended), 9pm

The Balladeers (Ana Egge, John Kengla, Rob Heath), 11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street between Avenues A & B (any train to 14th Street, F Train to Delancey Street or L Train to 1st Avenue, then transfer to the 14 A bus to 11th Street), 9pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)

 


Advance Planning: August 2015 Music Calendar

July 28, 2015

Calendar3

The heat and humidity are here and August will be here in just a few days.  So here is the August Music Calendar. Of note during the month is The Brooklyn Country Music Festival being held at The Bell House on August 20th through the 23rd.

As for the 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.

Tonight: Jon Dee Graham at Hill Country NY or North of Amarillo at Skinny Dennis

June 17, 2015

 

Jon Dee Graham

Tonight, there are two choices, both in Texas themed venues and both at 9pm.   In Chelsea, at Hill County NY, you’ll find Jon Dee Graham, an Austin legend.  One of my first encounters with Jon Dee was at a show at SXSW some years ago.  “You don’t need leather pants to rock,”  Jon insisted, and then continued “if I want to rock in a ratty sweater, I’ll rock in a ratty sweater.” Jon Dee is not only a great rocker and a curmudgeonly funny story teller, but in the late 80s he was a member of the band The True Believers along with Alejandro Escovedo.

North of Amarillo

North of Amarillo, a band with Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Kelli Scarr on lead vocals, will play  Skinny Dennis in Williamsburg tonight starting at 9pm.  Inspired by the music of Emmylou Harris, North of Amarillo pays tribute to her classic songs and arrangements along with a mix of originals and other country favorites. In addition to Kelli, NOA features Luca Benedetti and Jason Loughlin on Telecaster Guitars, Jonny Lam on Pedal Steel Guitar, Scott Colberg on Bass and Arthur Vint on drums.

Jon Dee Graham, Hill County NY, 30 W. 26th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway (F, M or R Trains to 23rd Street), 9pm (For dinner reservations, please call 212-255-4544, and let the host know you would like to be seated in the music area), No Cover

North of Amarillo, Skinny Dennis, 152 Metropolitan Avenue at Berry Street (G to Metropolitan Avenue, L to Bedford Avenue or Lorimer Street), No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended), 9pm
