Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers at The Loft - City Winery
July 12, 2019 - New York

Tickets will be $35 Day of Show Bridging the gap between rock & roll, roadhouse Americana, and the music sound of the southwestern United States, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have carved their own path over the last 25 years. They've traveled the world, sent eight albums to the top of the Billboard Internet Sales Chart, launched an annual music festival in Mexico, started their own line of ultra-premium tequila and built a global community of music-lovers and peacemakers – all while remaining 100% independent. The band just released their 10th studio album in 20 years - "Native Heart". Produced by Grammy winning legend Steve Berlin and mixed by Michael Brauer at the iconic Electric Ladyland, they shine new light on a band that's built a career on trekking their own path with their own sound style of twang and taller-than-life characters of the Southwest to a rock & roll soundtrack. The band's roots run deep, sinking back to a time with The Refreshments – the hometown heroes of Phoenix during the mid-1990s, fueled by a major-label deal with Mercury Records, a popular song ("Banditos") on American rock radio and MTV, and the unique distinction of being both the composers and per...

Cherubs Low Dose - Saint Vitus Bar
July 13, 2019 - Brooklyn

This event is 21 and over Formed in 1992 by Ed Hall, expatriate drummer Kevin Whitley (vocals/guitar), Owen McMahon (bass), and Brent Prager (drums), the Cherubs emerged on the Austin, TX, LSD punk scene with a jackhammer of nightmarish, rhythm-driven song structures and plenty of Butthole Surfers whimsy and terror to keep things more than interesting. Later that year, King Koffey of the Butthole Surfers released the band's first album, Icing, on his Trance Syndicate label. Icing proved a strange concoction of repetitive, hypnotic beats, frosted with Kevin Whitley's high-pitched howl. In 1993, the band issued the Carjack Fairy single, each of the thousand pressed sleeved in a different piece of wallpaper samples; an interesting concept, and one certainly not alien to the musical climate of Austin, TX. By the time the band's magnum opus, Heroin Man, was issued in 1994, the Cherubs had called it quits, leaving a hell of an album in its wake, one of the most distorted, red-lined, oddball noise rock records ever made. Two years later, Trance released Short of Popular, a collection of singles, odds and ends, and outtakes from previous sessions. American noise rock band from Philadelph... (read more)

Artists at Noguchi: Bang on a Can Presents 75 Dollar Bill - Noguchi Museum
July 14, 2019 - Long Island City

Bang on a Can and The Noguchi Museum present the New York-based guitar and percussion duo 75 Dollar Bill, performing their unique blend of sound from Northwest Africa by way of Mississippi and New York No Wave. As 75 Dollar Bill, plywood crate percussionist Rick Brown and guitarist Che Chen make electric, richly patterned music that can shape shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism - an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India, and the Middle East, Sun Ra's space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their hometown. For this event, the group will present a special set of material conceived with the unique environs of The Noguchi Museum in mind. The performance will take place in The Noguchi Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain, the concert will move to the Museum's galleries. Free with Museum Admission. Presented by Bang on a Can https://www.noguchi.org/programs/public/artists-noguchi-bang-can-music-series-75-dollar-bill-july-14-2019 info@bangonacan.org 718-852-7755

Mike Love W/ Special Guests - Buffalo Iron Works
July 14, 2019 - Buffalo

In this modern age of music, genres blend together as naturally as the river flows into the sea. With the expansive library of all the music of the world from every time period at our fingertips, creative artists seem to be more and more liberated from the archaic mentality of being pigeonholed into one genre or demographic. Mike Love is at the forefront of this movement. With a foundation rooted in the spirituality and message-based music of Reggae and Rastafari, he blends the sounds of progressive and classic rock, pop, R & B, soul, blues, flamenco, jazz and so much more. Healing is at the core of his music. With ever evolving live performances, Love keeps his organically grown fanbase returning again and again to witness the evolution of tried and true fan favorites, and the ever-expanding repertoire of new music that is constantly surfacing. Fans often leave live performances remarking about how they have just been to church, or had a bad day turned around.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Forest Hills Stadium
July 14, 2019 - Forest Hills

Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd returns with a fiery slice of Southern style guitar rock heaven in Last of a Dyin' Breed, their newest release on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records due August 21, 2012. This is the kind of record guaranteed to feed the needs of the multi-generational Skynyrd Nation, and continue the renewed vigor the band exhibited with their last album, 2009's God & Guns. For the passionate, longtime fans of the band, this is Skynyrd at the top of their game, complete with instantly memorable songs, more hooks than a tackle box, and a blistering three-guitar attack at full power. From the raging guitars of the title track and the pounding, funky homage to local talent in "Home Grown" to the mind-blowing "Honey Hole," Lynyrd Skynyrd sound like young bucks having one hell of a good time, which, regarding the latter, founding member Gary Rossington says is very much the case. "For me this is one of the happiest and most fun albums I've ever done," says Rossington. "We didn't have a lot of problems goin' on; it was just fun goin' to work every day."

Summer Thunder - Union Pool
July 14, 2019 - Brooklyn

21 and over AL-053 Chris Corsano & Bill Orcutt LP "Brace Up!" Brace Up! is the first ever studio release from the duo of Chris Corsano (drums) and Bill Orcutt (guitar). Recorded in Brussels at Les Ateliers Claus by Christophe Albertijn on March 19th and 20th, 2018. Stage dive photograph by Jason Penner "Over the past six years or so, drummer Chris Corsano has proven to be one of Bill Orcutt's most reliably flexible collusionists. Regardless of whether Bill is cluster-busting electric guitar strings, weaseling around with cracked electronics, or playing relatively spacious free-rock, Corsano is able to provide the proper base for his aural sculpting. A lot of Orcutt's instrumental work has traditionally felt hermetic even though he's exploring caverns of explosive ecstasy.
