Cindy Rainne - Groove
June 17, 2019 - New York

Singer-songwriter Cindy Rainne was taunted and teased as a young girl. Her coping mechanism became crafting an effervescent exterior—to outsiders, she was bubbly, filled with sunshine, all smiles. It was a disguise further enhanced by her prodigious musical talents. Whether she was making a musical appearance or a social one, it was all a performance. However, through using her musical gifts to heal her soul, she's found the courage to face down the specters of her past. Now, she steps into the light with The Mask, a masterful debut EP that promotes self-love and self-expression. "I spent a lot of time being who I thought people wanted me to be. Working on this album had me digging to figure out who I was, and giving myself permission to be that person," reveals the Brooklyn, New York-based artist. Cindy calls her music "clearwater soul," it's an elixir of raw truths and organic instrumentation, and its earthy purity nourishes the soul. Within this stream of expression are elements of classical music, jazz, pop, Caribbean rhythms, opera, gospel, soul, and R&B. Cindy's lyrics are sassy and sensitive, she writes from her own redemptive journey of reclaiming her dignity and identi... (read more)

Tango at Django: Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet - The Django

Tango at Django: Pedro Giraudo Tango Quartet

Mitsuko Uchida, Piano - Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall
June 18, 2019 - New York

This concert was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 30. Tickets for the original date will be honored on June 18. Concertgoers with additional questions should call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800. There's melody, melancholy, and perhaps a touch of madness in the two late Schubert sonatas framing a gentle early work. The Sonata in A Minor, likely written when the composer learned of the gravity of his venereal disease, is a dark-hued journey from its disconsolate opening to jittery finale. The Sonata in A Major flows with some of Schubert's most fetching melodies, but the rampaging scales, trills, and clusters that interrupt a tender second-movement theme suggest nightmare or hallucination—perhaps Schubert's cry of misery from the effects of disease.

T-rex and Friends 'Live' Hosted by Prissy - DROM
June 19, 2019 - New York

Vocal powerhouse and Troy, NY native Terrell 'T-REX' Simon started delivering soul-stirring music at the age of six, when he discovered his gift singing in the church. He got his professional start in New York City while performing with a traveling choir throughout the region. In 2003, his connections led him to platinum-selling singer-songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings who took him on the road with his act. T-Rex began touring with such major artists as John Legend, Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, and Musiq SoulChild. As a huge fan of Dave Hollister, coming up he adopted a similar sound, patterning his voice after the vocal sensation, and later touring with him as a backup singer. His TV appearances include Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America, David Letterman, Jay Leno, 106 & Park, and The Monique show, among others. The pivotal moment in his career came when he appeared on MTV Unplugged with Neyo, which gained mass exposure for him.

Kishi Bashi 'Omoiyari' intimate album release show - Murmrr
June 19, 2019 - Brooklyn

All Ages Imagine being forced from your home. Imagine being sent to a prison camp with no trial, and no promise of release. Imagine all this happened simply because of the language you speak, the shade of your skin, or the roots of your family tree. For over 120,000 Japanese-Americans this was a reality during World War II. It's a reality that Kishi Bashi seeks to reckon with on his latest release Omoiyari. Omoiyari is Kishi Bashi's fourth album — following the acclaimed 151a (2012), Lighght (2014), and Sonderlust (2016), which have garnered serious acclaim from outlets including NPR Music, The Wall Street Journal, and The Guardian — and his most important yet. Many of the songs were initially inspired by history and oppression, and he deftly weaves tales of love, loss, and wanting to connect listeners to the past. Channeling the hard-learned lessons of history, Omoiyari is an uncompromising musical statement on the turbulent sociopolitical atmosphere of present-day America.

Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams - YMCA Boulton Center For The Performing Arts
June 20, 2019 - Bay Shore

Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams' acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm's band – and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana. Larry, who produced Contraband Love, says, "I wanted this record to be a progression, bigger than the first one. That's all I knew. I wanted the songwriting to be deeper, the arrangements more interesting, the performances more dynamic. Specifically how to get there, I didn't know. I did know the songs were different. The subject matter was darker than anything else I've written."

Iris Lune *EP release show* with Lenii and Puck - C'mon Everybody
June 22, 2019 - Brooklyn

IRIS LUNE Through the vessel of Iris Lune, beguiling front woman Ella Joy Meir aims to extinguish the veil between art and life. Gripping, downcast, lucid, the volcanic talent's soul-stirring alto penetrates deeply — leaving a gossamer sheen that fully envelops the senses. A bonafide triple threat, Meir is in constant flex as a lead vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, whose alluring Iris Lune cloak could rival any of her own art-pop heroines Florence Welch, Bjork, Mitski and Joni Mitchell. With two EPs — 2015's Iris Lune and 2017's Lost In Chatter — under her belt, the queer upstart has netted over a million streams across platforms to date, and has become a local live force, selling out shows in her newly minted home base of New York City. LENII Lenii is a singer, music producer and multi-instrumentalist from Cork, Ireland. A vegetarian who sneaks a piece of duck now and then. Frequently cries and laughs at the same time. Says "plug out" instead of "unplug". Worries about being basic. PUCK A daughter of Pacific Northwest DIY, formal music school, the New York scene, and sideman work as a pianist, Puck is the exciting new project from pianist-artist Kaley... (read more)

Carnegie Hall Citywide: Birds of Chicago - Snug Harbor Cultural Center
June 22, 2019 - Staten Island

Birds of Chicago—husband-and-wife team JT Nero and Allison Russell—has been making soulful, heartfelt music since 2012. In Nero's words, the duo's self-described "secular gospel" songs open up "channels of love." Birds of Chicago's voices—Nero's gritty and Russell's smooth—blend beautifully and recall country blues, doo-wop, and classic soul. The pair's newest album, Love in Wartime, is balm for the nation's troubled times, offering messages of trust and understanding that are also danceable.
