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)

Thurston Moore Group - Bowery Ballroom

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. The band created a signature sound that combined elements of Electronica, Funk and Rock with a heavy emphasis on improvisation and sonic exploration, and their influence can still be felt and heard in many of today's top touring Jam and EDM/Funk bands. Always striving to think outside the box and create unique concert experiences, Particle paired their high-energy dance music with cutting-edge multimedia production, thematic special events, and epic marathon sets that quickly developed a loyal fan base of Particle People spanning genre lines from jam to EDM. Particle went on to perform in eight different countries and headline venues coast-to-coast, from the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles to Irving Plaza in New York City. The band has also been a staple at major U.S. festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, ACL Festival and Lollapalooza.

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)

July 21, 2017 - Brooklyn

** Please note this event will be mixed seated/standing. Arrive early for best seat selection.

Like a twisted version of MTV Unplugged, Austin City Limits, or VH1 Storytellers, HAUNTING RENDITIONS LIVE is an intimate night of bad music made good.

Back Yard Listening with Amanda Colbenson - Nowadays
July 21, 2017 - New York

Every Friday and Saturday night at Nowadays, we invite one of our favorite vinyl selectors down to pull out their dream back yard barbecue set to make the vibe right while you have a drink, grab a bite, play ping pong, lie in the grass or all of the above. Bringing the tunes to the back yard this evening is Amanda Colbenson. We've known Amanda since her days at Other Music. Her long term spot behind the counter at that hallowed musical institution is enough to make us want to listen to her entire collection, but Amanda's work at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair and with Ghostly has added even more dimension. She's got an extensive knowledge of rare soul, pop and rock, and we're looking forward to hearing it all this evening.

Live bands: The Mungmen, and more tba - Cobra Club

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)

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.

During this tour, Graham is partnering with the Guacamole Fund and Musicians United for Safe Energy (M.U.S.E.) to raise funds on its behalf by offering you special benefit seating.* M.U.S.E. is a non-profit organization that supports organizations worldwide that promote safe, alternative non-nuclear energy.

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. "Damn good Demo with elements of raw and fast crust/d-beat!" "Grab it, play it loud !!!!!"

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)

Toad the Wet Sprocket (Late Show) - City Winery
July 23, 2017 - New York

Toad the Wet Sprocket share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording and touring on albums over the course of those 25 years. 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."
