Advance Planning: June 2016 Music Calendar

June 1, 2016

Calendar 4

It’s June, so here is the June music calendar.  This month has more shows happening than the past few months and one day when it seems that everyone in town is playing someplace (June 2).  Make Music New York will happen on June 21st, and if there is a searchable schedule for it, I’ll post some recommendations later in the month.

In any event, the usual ground rules apply: listings are for venues in New York City (and occasionally Hoboken or Jersey City near public transportation) 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, both in a separate post and with updates on this calendar.

Tonight: Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain at The 11th Street Bar

February 10, 2016

11th Street Bar

The back area of The 11th Street Bar has hosted any number of wonderful shows over the years.  Leslie Mendelson, Freddie Stevenson and Julia Haltigan all played there regularly in years past (they all still play there, too, just not regularly anymore).  There’s still music at The 11th Street Bar nearly every night.  And tonight is no exception.

The show will start at 9pm.  Playing are Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain.  The stock in trade for both Ana and Mike is Americana.  I’ve seen Ana play in any number of configurations, from full band to solo, but I’m not sure in what format she will be playing tonight.  It’s been a while since I’ve seen Mike play, and I think that last time I saw him, he was playing with his previous band (Tandy).  Even so, both these musicians are well worth catching.

Ana Egge and Mike Ferrio and Good Luck Mountain, 11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street between Avenues A and 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)

Tonight: The Radigan Roundup at The12th Street Bar and Grill

August 2, 2015

12th Street Bar

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.  As usually, Terry will play a short set and is joined tonight by Teddy KumpelAna EggeWarren Malone, Mike Ferrio, Rony Corcos, and Benjamin Cartel.  At the Roundup, the music is usually stripped down and things are loose and spontaneous.  Things will get going tonight at 7:30pm  and run through 10:30pm, but getting to The 12th Street Bar and Grill early for a seat (the place is on the small size) is not a bad idea.

The Radigan Roundup with  Terry Radigan, Teddy KumpelAna EggeWarren Malone, Mike Ferrio, Rony Corcos, and Benjamin Cartel, 12th Street Bar and Grill, 1123 8th Avenue – enter on 12th Street, Park Slope (F or G Trains to 7th Avenue, use the 8th Avenue exit), 7:30pm, No Cover, (but a contribution for the musicians is highly encouraged)
