Mondo NYC is a four day music conference and concert event from Thursday, October 5th through Sunday October 8th in various locations throughout the city. A more underground version of CMJ on the one hand and with a higher industry to sound ratio then in the past, on the other. Of even greater interest for True Groove fans is an event within an event, Sam Huber’s release party for his astounding upcoming funk workout Confused. Tomas Doncker performs twice, Kellindo Parker’s glam as noise performs one night and Khalil Kain joins Tomas for the Sunday night at Pianos (a 5pm gig).
Monday, Friday – Katy Perry: Witness The Tour – Madison Square Garden – I wasn’t crazy about the new album either,but live she is a big deal production, show stopper after show stopper, multimedia wonder and unmissable.
Monday, Tuesday – PAUL WELLER – A KIND REVOLUTION TOUR – Irving Plaza – Tickets are changing hands for twenty bucks, though I’d pay $100 to catch the Jam man at the Beacon.
Monday, Tuesday – Solange, Earl Sweatshirt, Sun Ra Arkestra – Radio City Music Hall – I am seriously considering this one, I thought Solange was terrific at Panorama earlier this year and I adore Earl Sweatshirt…
Tuesday – Friday – Springsteen on Broadway (NY) – Bruce begins his four month run, I’m going on the 27th.
Wednesday – Paramore – Tour Two – Radio City Music Hall – The new Paramore album isn’t very good and Best Coast, who are opening, were always better anyway, even so… not bad.
Wednesday – Bruno Mars: 24K Magic World Tour – Barclay Center – I wasn’t crazy about the show last month at MSG, but still, go.
Thursday – METZ – The Bowery Ballroom – Their new album, Strange Peace, was released last week, and it is a goodie. Should be a loud night.
Thursday – Black Lips – Music Hall Of Williamsburg – Loud fast rules.
Friday, Saturday – Tedeschi Trucks Band – Beacon Theatre – I was disappointed last year but maybe one more chance?
Friday – The National – Forest Hills Stadium – Daughter are opening… but dress in layers.
Saturday – Teddy Riley, Dave Hollister, Total, Case, Soul for Real, Syleena Johnson, RL, Blackstreet – King’s Theatre – That is some fucking line-up.
Saturday – Laura Marling – Gramercy Theatre – Some q and a, some songs. Well past her prime but young enough for a possible second coming, even so this should be fun.
Sunday – The Wonder Years – Le Poisson Rouge – Afternoon acoustic gig.
Sunday – Best Coast – Rough Trade – In case you wanna get closer than Radio City.
