The Rock and Roll Playhouse Presents: Holly Bowling - Brooklyn Bowl
July 16, 2017 - Brooklyn

This ticket is for the Rock n Roll Playhouse Workshop. By attending this event, I consent to my image (with or without my voice) being included in photographs and/or film and videotape of the event, and give Brooklyn Bowl, The Rock and Roll Playhouse and their respective licensees and assigns the absolute and irrevocable right and permission to use and publish such content in any and all media, whether now known or hereafter. Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There's one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly's devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. Having attended over 300 shows by the Burlington-based quartet, she became obsessed by their famous rendition of "Tweezer" from Lake Tahoe on July 31, 2013. It led Holly to transcribe this 37-minute improvisational masterpiece note-for-note and arrange it for solo piano. The process, both painstaking and fulfilling, inspired her to transform other Phish songs and well-known live jams into solo piano interpretations. Holly's breathtaking renditions of Phish classics like "It's Ice," "The Squirming Coil" and ... (read more)

Los Lonely Boys - City Winery
July 18, 2017 - New York

We decided to call this album Revelation because we want to make music that reveals something to people about their lives and their world," says Jojo Garza. He's talking about the new release by Los Lonely Boys, the close-knit Texas trio that the bassist/vocalist shares with his brothers Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ringo (drums, vocals). "As musicians and artists, we're here to connect with people, and to share our view of things." Revelation also marks Los Lonely Boys' first recording work since Henry Garza sustained serious injuries in a fall from the stage during a February 2013 performance in Los Angeles, necessitating a lengthy and ongoing recovery period. The abiding sense of family unity and creative rapport that allowed the band to weather such a potentially devastating event has been built into Los Lonely Boys from the beginning. Indeed, Henry, Jojo and Ringo have been making music together for their entire lives. Their father, Ringo Garza Sr., was a member of another sibling band, the Falcones, which played throughout southern Texas in the '70s and '80s. When that group disbanded, Ringo Sr. went solo, and recruited his three young sons to back him. The family relocat... (read more)

My Favourite Things Record Release - Mercury Lounge
July 18, 2017 - New York

Brooklyn's My Favourite Things offer you a window into their dreamy world of hushed lullabies, warm whispers and enchanting melodies. Their songs sound like paper-cut distant villages, cloud mountains that brush up against the ether and evergreen forests punctuated with sly yellow eyes blinking out towards you between the hulking live oaks. The delicate compositions swoon and bathe the listener in an aural watercolor wash that evokes a picturebook of all the places you visited when daydreaming as a child and never thought you would return to. Autoharps and vibraphones weave in and out of sometimes complex, sometimes shredding guitars, a grounding bass and the ever intricate beat of the drums. Led by multi-instrumentalist Dorothea Tachler (voice, guitar), My Favourite Things perform live as four or five piece featuring prominent musicians plucked from the buoyant New York scene; Yusuke Yamamoto (vibraphone, synthesizer), Daru Oda (voice, keys), Michael Figgiani (bass) and Yoshio Kobayashi (drums), transporting transfixed audiences from their chaotic built up urban environments to a twilight world of their favourite things.

Skyfactor - Mercury Lounge
July 19, 2017 - New York

One listen to SKYFACTOR's SIGNAL STRENGTH and it's clear these guys know how to craft memorable and powerful "Rockoustic" songs that grab you from the get-go — and won't let go. SKYFACTOR's simple but effective melodies combine with edgy dynamics to take the listener on a ride each and every time. Formed on a rooftop in the East Village of New York City, SKYFACTOR was born when the musical paths of longtime friends Bob Ziegler and Jason Taylor (formerly of Michigan's Brother Rabbit) and brothers Jon Rubin and Cliff Rubin (formerly of NYC's Sky Blues) finally crossed. Almost instantly the songs started flowing out, and they knew they were on to something. Their debut album Daydreams received much critical acclaim and notice, including that of MTV, who chose the track "OK" as the theme song for an episode of Teen Mom, resulting in something of a hit single for the band, with many thousands of downloads and streams from around the world. Skyfactor also must have a big fan at NBC's The Voice, who used another cut from Daydreams no less than three times in the same season, including in their season finale which was seen by 14 million viewers. After the success of Daydreams, the... (read more)

Book Signing: All Our Waves Are Water by Jaimal Yogis - The Rubin Museum of Art
July 19, 2017 - New York

All Our Waves Are Water is an exploration of surfer-turned-journalist Jaimal Yogis' "failing towards enlightenment" as he searches for God and meaning in the world's oceans. Along the way he learns that the perfect ride may well be the one we are on right now. Pioneering surf icon Tom Blake once called the ocean the blessed church of the open sky. More than any other sport, surfing embodies both a physical and spiritual quest. As a lifelong seeker, Jaimal Yogis sits at the center of that quest. His upbringing in a household that was dedicated to religious ambiguity left Yogis curious, desiring a connection with God but unsure where to find it.. Yogis' journey takes him from a monastery in Tibet to Franciscan monks in Harlem, from the warm waves of Indonesia to the foggy cold of San Francisco's Ocean Beach. What place would be more natural to search for that divine power than on a board?

Craig Harris and Tailgaters - Harlem Jazz Series - Rendall Memorial Presbyterian Church
July 19, 2017 - New York

When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word.

Wash also performed lead vocals on Black Box's chart-toppers "Strike It Up" and "Everybody Everybody," as well as C+C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)," which hit No. 1 ...

Benefit Concert: Conor Oberst w/ special guests Hop Along / Big Thief - BRIC
July 20, 2017 - Brooklyn

Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, Conor Oberst was an indie rock prodigy whose confessional singer/songwriter style and distinct trembling voice quickly wooed the college radio station listeners of the 90s. He is best known for his band Bright Eyes, but has branched out to other projects such as the more rocking Desaparecidos and of course the supergroup Monsters of Folk. Nearly 20 years later and with many projects and albums under his belt, the now indie veteran Oberst continues to remain at the top of fans' playlists. Following up on the 2016 album Ruminations, which Rolling Stone called a "refreshing renewal of the anxiety-ridden intimacy that marked his earliest work," Oberst just announced a companion album titled Salutations which will be out on on Nonesuch Records on March 17, 2017.

Tank and the Bangas + Sweet Crude - Brooklyn Bowl
July 20, 2017 - Brooklyn

Originating in New Orleans, Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relates them, to the city that birth them but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances range from being "One of the most energetic shows you'll ever see" to "A gospel tent in Mississippi". Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you'll find the Bangas to provoke a musical reference of Rhythmic Soul and Spoken word among other genres such as Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Folk. Combining the various musical techniques among the Bangas, coupled with the instilling play on lyrics from the lead vocalist; Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that singles them as one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans. The group has graced the cover of one of New Orleans most recognized magazines, "OffBeat" and recently won band of the year at the New Orleans Big Easy Awards. The group has opened for acts such as LiAnne LaHavas, PJ Morton, Galactic, Big Freedia, The Revivalist, and The Soul Rebels.

Loose Buttons Atlas Engine - Mercury Lounge
July 20, 2017 - New York

If 'Is This It' and 'Sound of Silver' were bread slices, the four guys in Loose Buttons became real people-ish in about the salami part of the equation. A troupe of native New Yorkers (well we actually feel bad lying to you, one of us is from Connecticut), the quartet were struck by the energy buzzing around The Big Apple at some point in their early adolescent years and channeled that inspiration into strumming the guitar/plucking the bass/banging the drumset…blah, blah, blah, typical band bio stuff. Either way, we've been together for a couple of years and have played around New York City and Miami a lot. Three of us went to college in Miami to pursue careers as dubstep DJs but eventually returned to our roots of indie rock and roll. So here we are. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.Incorporating the intricate layers and harmonies of Local Natives with Tame Impala-inspired falsettos and soaring melodies reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Brooklyn's Atlas Engine bends and blends genres into its own distinctive mix of indie, pop, and rock. "Skillfully crafted…stunning melodies" - AudioFemme "Invokes a feeling of transience with a...rolling, adventurous vibe" - The Wild Honey Pie... (read more)

Guns N' Hoses - Bowery Ballroom
July 20, 2017 - New York

Welcome to the Vajungle! Voted 'Best Tribute Band' by the Village Voice, Guns N' Hoses is a veritable supergroup of the city's hottest internationally touring musicians. They break hearts and a few jaws every show with the raucous rock of classic GNR. Slash and Duff McKagan happened to drop in on one of their rehearsals the day before their sold-out show at LA's Viper Room and said "You girls sound like our mirror." Slash later tweeted "Sounded pretty tight, I have to say…Cool chicks." New England Music News writes: "The Hoses are not a tribute band that sound just like the original. They are not a collection of eye-candy, thrown together that can just kinda-sorta play instruments. They are not hipster smartasses mocking the over-the-top silliness of the original. They are a talented band that really appreciates the original GNR sound, and has fun with it. Any cover band would have simply played the hits. GNH dug into the riffs, from the funky bass of Mr Brownstone, to the crying Les Paul of Sweet Child of Mine." The ladies have been touring and traveling a bunch, just playing India this past September. This show will be their FIRST back in NYC all year! So throw on those C... (read more)

Bang on a Can: Kaki King at The Jewish Museum - The Jewish Museum
July 20, 2017 - Upper East Side

Bang on a Can and the Jewish Museum's 2017-18 concert season, which will focus on pioneering female artists, begins with a performance featuring the distinctive and exceptional indie-guitarist Kaki King. King's performance takes place alongside the Jewish Museum's current exhibition, Florine Stettheimer: Painting Poetry, the first major U.S. exhibition in over 20 years focused on the modernist painter, designer, and poet. Much like Florine Stettheimer, who created her own universe through her unique sensibilities and playful imagery, Kaki King, who is hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," uses extended techniques to create her own musical universe outside the mainstream.

The Cosmic Coronas - Rocks Off
July 21, 2017 - New York

They didn't know it at the time, but for years the members of The Cosmic Coronas were on an inevitable collision course toward the creation of the ultimate rock, punk and funk musical experience. The brilliance of the Cosmic Coronas is the result of a mashup between The Fabulous Rhinos and The SuffTown Traffic Jam. The Rhinos were founded by Brad Widolok, Noah Nielsen, Kevin Gayson and Tom Taubes in the winter of 2014 after a number of successful jams in New York City's Euphoria Studios. Brad's thick guitar leads layered on top of Noah's overdriven grooves and Kevin's smooth acoustic accompaniment formed the ideal foundation for a powerful band. Brad and Noah immediately went to work writing original songs that built upon the classic sounds of their favorite artists of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s to bring rock and roll into the 21st Century. The Rhinos expanded its sound by adding Dan Raiani on bass guitar and Nick Brucaliere on drums--two friends from Suffern, New York who have been performing together for over a decade in a dynamic duo known as the Sufftown Traffic Jam. Dan and Nick brought a technical proficiency and a steady rhythm to anchor the newly formed Cosmic Coronas and ex... (read more)

Particle - Cutting Room
July 21, 2017 - New York

Particle began its journey in Los Angeles in 2000 as one of the key pioneers of the emerging 'livetronica' music scene.

Early Elton performing 'Madman Across The Water' in its entirety, plus a set of favorites! - City Winery
July 21, 2017 - New York

As the story goes, Elton's label didn't have the funds to send him out to tour the US with a full band, yet Elton needed to promote his imminent releases. Having decided on Dee and Nigel, Elton then rearranged the songs and vocals to fit within the limitations of his new lineup. Suddenly, a new sound emerged that was both raw and poignant. While Jeff, John and Rich have painstakingly scoured the net for rare video, bootleg recordings and even Elton's own home demos in shaping their collective vision of Elton's Trio Period, they blur the line slightly between replication and innovation -- while still capturing and utilizing the spirit, mood and energy from those early tours. The Gospel/Funk of "Take Me To The Pilot", the soulful storytelling of "Levon" and "Amoreena", the epic-sounding "Burn Down The Mission", the countrified "Country Comfort" and the grand scale of "Madman Across The Water" are just a few of the fantastic chapters that make up the Early Elton song book. The band has also been known to perform Tumbleweed Connection and the live concert, 11 - 17 - 70, in their entireties. Early Elton is dedicated to continuing the spirit of this period—arguably, his finest i... (read more)

Swimm Gods Zuli - Mercury Lounge
July 22, 2017 - New York

SWIMM is a band. Though truly it feels as though I'm slighting you to define it so irreverently. Sure… the semantics. It is a group of guys playing indie music. Genres, directions and influence oh my. The way I see it? You don't blur genre lines as much as you weave in and around them. Like a dancer trained in the art of the pole, you wrap yourself around every angle of that steel, climbing to exhilarating heights, effortlessly spinning off in exciting directions but still poised and comfortable in the intimacy of an eye-locking ass-clap. Again… even thinking about it… It moved a little. The ambition to strive for a singular voice and sincerity in music is often the 'unapproachable model sitting alone smoking a menthol at the bar blankly staring above her glass of sherry'. So the mirabilia in you finding that is not lost on me. But to this there is that and to that there is this! An innate humor that often detracts the listener from ever taking you too seriously. Well let's say more seriously than you would ever want. And in that my SWIMM friends the truth you are tapping into does not beg for recognition nor does it parry those listeners with phlegmatic constitution. Cause let's f... (read more)

Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with both Crosby, Stills, and Nash and the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a Grammy Award winner.

Damien Escobar The Heart and Soul Tour - Garde Arts Center
July 22, 2017 - New London

An evening with two-time Emmy Award winning urban / rock / hip-hop / classical violinist, Damien Escobar. With stand-up comedy show opener featuring John Perrotta, hosted by Marvy Marv, DJ Craig G and Jenny Boom Boom. Easy come, easy go; was the lesson two-time Emmy Award winning violinist Damien Escobar learned when he and his brother walked away from a multi-million dollar brand that took ten years to build. The now 27-year-old's claim to fame came early on in his teens when he, alongside his brother, appeared on "America's Got Talent" as Nuttin' but Stringz. Two urban kids from Jamaica, Queens, playing a blend of hip hop and classical melodies with a violin was somewhat surprising to viewers, and unique to say the very least; and the duo quickly shot to stardom– appearing in commercials and movies, touring, and even adding a platinum selling album to their accolades. Since re-launching his career, Escobar boasts of 200K downloads from his first R&B mixtape, "Sensual Melodies"; and has more than a few notable solo headliner performances under his belt including: CBS Upfront Presentation, Food & Wine Magazine's Best New Chef Awards, Indy Car Championship Awards, Major Lea...

Lotion, Haram, Dss, Witchtrial, Urchin - Sunnyvale
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

The modern wave of NYC hardcore birthed in the mid-aughts by bands like Crazy Spirit, Dawn of Humans, and Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, though still in tact, started to shift a little over a year ago. In the time frame between the 2014 and 2015 iterations of New York's Alright, the scene essentially drew and quartered itself, symbolically bookending a vital chapter in the contemporary scene on what would end up (supposedly) being the last year of the fest. Some found the light mangled at the altar of classic rock (Cheena), Haram ?Nader Habibi is a frizzy-haired and heavily tattooed Lebanese-American from Yonkers, New York. He has a fondness for mesh tank tops, large earrings and raging hardcore punk. (DC, mems of Warthog, Pure Disgust, Firewalker, Protestor, Ajax, Barbed Wire) Raw Punk/HC from New York area, featuring members of Narcoleptics and Razorheads.

Raq - Mercury Lounge
Through July 22, 2017 - New York

Self-described as high performance rock n roll, RAQ has been touring as a four piece band for over 15 years. Their unique sound featuring complex song structure and quirky-yet-accessible lyrics has their older fans wishing the band was still full time and the younger generation wondering what they have missed. There is little doubt after all these years that RAQ still delivers tremendously when it comes to live improvisational rock. The band met in Burlington, Vermont, where they first called themselves "Shadraq", but decided to shorten the name to RAQ before cutting their debut album "Shed Tech" in March of 2001. In 2002, the band saw original keyboard player, Marc Scortino, leave the band and replaced by Todd Stoops. Stoops joined Chris Michetti (guitar), Jay Burwick (Bass) and Greg Stukey (drums) to make up the band for the remainder of the decade. The band went on to release "Carbohydrates Are the Enemy" later that year and set out for their first national tour. In 2006, RAQ released their third album "Ton These." The band took a brief hiatus from 2012-2014 to pursue some other projects and plays currently with the 3 founding members: Michetti, Burwick and Stoops who are now... (read more)

After "Bread & Circus," they followed with "Pale" in 1990, "fear" in '91, "Dulcinea" in 1994, and "Coil" in 1997, as well as some compilations and rarities compilations along the way. While most will feel the comforting familiarity of the Billboard-charting hits, "Walk on the Ocean," "All I Want," "Something's Always Wrong," and "Fall Down," new fans will also be well familiar with their new hits such as "California Wasted" which continues to climb the charts. Even with a period of the band members weaving in and out of each other's musical lives, the same creative curiosity that inspired the band to form in 1986 has brought them full circle to come back together again. Toad the Wet Sprocket's last album "New Constellation," which was launched with an impressive #3 most funded Kickstarter Campaign in music for the year, was the bands' first new album in 16 years when released in 2013, and features the singles "New Constellation", "The Moment", and "California Wasted."

About the DJ David Ellenbogen has been spinning music on New York City's WKCR and a number of other stations since 1997. Scores of Grammy winners have come to speak or play on his shows, and his guests have ranged from members of Steely Dan and the Allman Brothers to jazz legends McCoy Tyner and Yusef Lateef. Ellenbogen spins with the goal of matching the perfect music for the perfect time and place. This often means packing the dance floor but could also be setting an ideal ambience for yoga or intense conversation. All four years of his Ragas Live Festival (a broadcast which features twenty-four hours of live raga music, performed by more than seventy musicians) and other highlights from his radio shows are available on his NYC Radio Live podcast, which has reached listeners in eighty countries.
