A pretty interesting week of music in and around New York City. Here is where I will be---or at least where I hope to be.
2007-01-30-Jared and the Deyounger Brothers @ Annex
Yes, my co-worker Jared has managed to skip post-jam completely and finds himself playing a hip Lower East Side indie-club owned by none other than 2004 buzz band Interpol (the club is so hip, in fact, Interpol isn't even allowed to play there anymore)
2007-01-30-Tom Hamilton @ Living Room
Tommy previews some material from the awsome forthcoming American Babies album at the Living Room. The first night of a month long ballad.
2007-02-01-David Byrne @ Carnegie Hall
The first night of DB's four night residency finds the former Talking Heads frontman revisiting his long dormant 1985 score, Music From the Knee Plays. Indeed, there is a fine line between art and really, really pretentious artists, but David Byrne always manages to remain in the light
2007-02-02-Galactic @ Irving Plaza
I've seen Galactic about 30 times and still can't name one of there songs. But that didn't stop me from scoring a ticket for show 31!
2007-02-02-Digital Frontier @ Rebel
The baby-Bisco generation's next inverted hope returns to New York City and rolls out the red carpet (pun intended) for Philly's own Push at this midtown nightclub
2007-02-03-Mike and Schwartz on Sirius!
Don't go see live music (sorry Dee and Andy). Instead sit at home and listen to Jon and I talk about Phish for hours on Sirius Jam_On (consider this a pilot for I'm with Relix Magazine)
2007-02-04-I hear something about a sporting event.....
2007-02-05-Cat Power @ Hiro Ballroom
Cat Power has always been a bit out to sea, so the Maritime Hotel seems like as good a place as any to hear her claw away at her emotions
