There are a lot of shows going on between October 26th and November 9th…We’ve got brand new stuff by Winston C.W., pretty new stuff by Heaters, and exclusive BTRtoday live tracks by Marijuana…
Both Katie Von Schleicher and Dead Stars have new albums — Shitty Hits and Perfect Patterns respectively — out or on the way, so we focus mainly on them and their release shows in this edition of the podcast. Along the way, we’ll also hear tunes by Sam Evian, Tiny Hazard, Grim Streaker, and Fraidycat. Also, Innov Gnawa is set to begin a residency at Threes Brewing, so we’ll hear from them as well.
Stephen Perry has been a fixture of the local Brooklyn/NYC music scene for the better part of a decade now. His band, The Planes, recently took a year-long hiatus, but is now back strong after playing some shows and putting out a new album called Wax Diamond. Mr. Perry was kind enough to stop by and chat about his personal musical history, from his time growing up on Cape Cod to now, as well as the new album. Additionally, we have new music by The Mad Doctors, as well as all the artists playing their upcoming LP release show at Our Wicked Lady — Stuyedeyed, The Royal They, and Crazy Pills. And we have new and recent tunes by OxenFree, Lexie Roth, and Peter Silberman to boot. For more on The Mad Doctors, check out the the most recent editions of The Music Meetup podcast and column by BTRtoday’s very own Elena Childers.
We’ve got a lot of music in this episode… We’ll hear tunes by She Keeps Bees and New Myths, who are playing a benefit show for Planned Parenthood, as well as a song by Dumb Wolves, who are playing Thursdays For The Cause, in support of Our Revolution, at Our Wicked Lady. After that, it’s another group of songs from the King Pizza Records universe, with tracks by The Rizzos and a new one by The Mad Doctors. Then we have great stuff from Allah-Las, Sneaks, Office Culture, Cloud Becomes Your Hand, Fred Thomas, Mount Sharp, and Pavo Pavo.
Artists playing around NYC from 2/24-3/9; Thursdays For The Cause, March lineup; King Pizza Records; new music by Vagabon, A Deer A Horse, PWR BTTM; and a single to benefit Flint water crisis victims.
This episode covers February 9 through February 23, 2017 and features an interview with Carl Creighton. Carl’s band, Howth, released an album called Trashy Milky Nothing Town (it’s about ninja turtles) in 2015 and will be performing the album in full to accompany a full album-length music video he recently produced, that features many familiar faces from the local music scene. We also discuss politics, Howth’s next album (about the man behind the Heimlich Maneuver), and more. Also in the episode is music by Black Marble, Old Monk, The Rizzos, Katie Von Schleicher, and Grim Streaker, as well as a new focus on benefit shows — including Thursdays For The Cause at Our Wicked Lady.
In this episode, we hear music by artists who are playing around the NYC area from January 11th-26th. Among them are Shark?, who are playing a reunion show, and Landlady, who are playing an album release party. Also, Cake Shop, an institution of the local scene for over a decade, closed on New Year’s Eve, so we share some thoughts on that great venue.
