Active Viewin': rock nyc Concert Picks For The Week Of 1-20-14

Birthday bash




















I’ve been planning to see Monica Passim for around six months now but something keeps getting in the way of my chance to catch New York’s gift to country music. But NO MORE.  A Saturday night gig and in Midtown must be seen. Here is the press release: “Full band show! Skip Krevens on steel and guitar, Eugene Chrysler on doghouse bass, Jeff Somerstein on cocktail drum, and Monica Passin, vocals and guitar. With guests Johnny Jake on fiddle and guitar, and Drina Seay, vocals and triangle. And a spectacular chorus of girl singers will join us on the recent releases, “When Girls Sing” and “Too Much Time With Your Tears” All this and a huge hardwood dance floor!” At:

Connolly’s Pub Klub 45 NYC

121 West 45 Street, New York, New York 10036
Monday – Elizabeth And The Catapult – Mercury Lounge – Excellent indie folk with terrific piano. There last album was terrific.
Monday – Johnny Winter – BB Kings – Never has somebody this pale had the blues this bad.
Tuesday – Marsha Ambrosius – SOBs – First rate diva with hip hop credentials
Tuesday – Waxahatchee – Mercury Lounge – Don Giovianni’s indie folk entry is a winner
Wednesday – Jay Z – Prudential Center – The buzz on this show is really loud… we will se
Wednesday – Los Campesinos And Speedy Ortiz – Irving Plaza  – LC’s last album was a loser and the word is Speedy Ortiz sound like Pavement though I can’t hear it myself.
Wednesday – Bastille – Webster Hall  – ready to break big, one of the less appealing UK hypes.
Wow, and then nothing… the end of the week falls apart!
