Arum Rae Rockwood 4-16

Tonight there are two Now I’ve Heard Everything favorites playing and you can catch both of them.  First up, at the early time of 7pm, is Arum Rae, playing a show at Caffe Vivaldi that was just announced last night.  Arum is a singer and songwriter (she has cowritten material with The Civil WarsJohn Paul White and Steve McEwan of Melody Kills).  I’ve seen Arum play several shows recently and in those shows her songs have run the gamut between indie rock and blues. In any event, Arum will grab your attention.  After moving around for a while. Arum’s has come back to NYC and recently moved to Greenwich Village.

Elizabeth and The Catapult Mercury Lounge 5-18-15

Then head over to The Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on Allen Street.  There, at 9pm, you’ll find Elizabeth and The Catapult.  You can expect keyboard based idiosyncratic classical tinged pop and songs from the band’s three albums (including Like It Never Happened, one of Now I’ve Heard Everything’s Top Albums of 2014).  You’ll no doubt hear some new stuff too, as Elizabeth is currently working on a new album.  Elizabeth also likes to throw in some inspired covers as well.  Opening the show tonight will be Royal Wood, with whom Elizabeth is currently touring.

Then, at 11:30, next door at The Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 2, you’ll find tonight’s installment of The After Party (the above photo was taken at a previous installment of the show).  The After Party is the latest in a line of shows at The Rockwood in which a large number of musicians who are part of The Rockwood community get together and cover songs.  At The After Party, each show is dedicated to songs belonging to a given year.  Yes, it’s going to be a late night.  But if the time works for you, The After Party will be fun and surprising.

News and Notes

Leslie Mendelson Weir Here

Leslie Mendelson has just updated her website.  You’ll find news and photos and the like as well as Leslie’s music there.  Part of that music is the complete self-titled album from Leslie’s band from a few years back, Melody Kills. That album was sold at shows for a while, but it was never officially released, which was always a shame, because it is a great record which deserves to be heard.  So take this opportunity to head over to Leslie’s website and listen to it.  Leslie will also be appearing at City Winery tomorrow at 8pm.

You can now follow Now I’ve Heard Everything on Instagram.  I’ll be posting photos from shows I’m at in real time there.  Some, although not all, of those photos might eventually get posted here too.  I’ve already posted some pics from this week’s shows on Instagram.  Just look for nowiveheardeverything there.
