Cody Johnson - Irving Plaza
May 17, 2019 - New york

When Cody Johnson's Cowboy Like Me debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in January 2014, jaws dropped in offices all over Nashville. "I got a lot of 'Who is this kid?'" Johnson says with a laugh two years later. "I love that. That was a new horizon. And I'm gonna work to make sure people know exactly who I am." Johnson does that from the start in Gotta Be Me, a follow-up project that's loaded with solid country instrumentation and winsome melodies. In the first minute alone, he paints himself as a cowboy, raised on outlaw country, who drinks too much, fights too much and won't apologize for having an opinion. By the time the 14-track journey is over, he's shared his rodeo history in "The Only One I Know (Cowboy Life)," demonstrated his woman's influence in "With You I Am" and paid homage to his gospel heritage in "I Can't Even Walk."

The Dollop - The Bell House
May 18, 2019 - Brooklyn

This event is 21 and over History buff and comedian Dave Anthony was considering starting a new podcast in 2014.

Having not heard of the story before, Dave hoped the comedian's reaction would be hilarious. He gave it a go and his first guest was comedian Gareth Reynolds. They immediately clicked and fans flooded social media telling Dave to never change the co-host. And he didn't. Sticking to the formula of Dave reading Gareth a story he has never heard, The Dollop quickly shot up the charts. Fans of both comedy and history were drawn to the wild stories and quick improv skills of Gareth.

Young and old, black and white, the ghost teaches him how to cross the borders of time, space, and race, while fueling his anger against his brother and his father. Bad blood runs in the family, between France and Africa. Only the soldier’s daughter, along with the great stag of the mountain, knows how to wash the original sin away. “As dark, strange, and disorienting as a David Lynch movie.” ––Grégoire Leménager, L’Obs In French.
