Tonight: The Karyn Kuhl Band at Sinatra Park in Hoboken

June 16, 2016

Karen Kuhl

Here’s all you need to know about Karyn Kuhl: she’s a force of nature, both on the guitar and on vocals.  She leads her band through original songs which blend blues, garage rock and mid 60s pop.  Bracing is a word that comes to mind for a set from Karen and the band.

Just last week, Karyn released a new EP, The Stars Will Take You Home.  Those six songs include five original songs and one very surprising cover.  That EP contains the best new collection of psychedelic rock you will hear this year.

PATH trains will take you to Hoboken.  It’s not all that far from the PATH station to Sinatra Park.  Although there is some rain in the forecast for today, it should be over long before the show there begins with The Christine Santelli Band at 7pm.

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.
