92y

92YTribeca (200 Hudson Street, New York, NY) is hosting two music shows tonight (1/24). The first is at 8PM, is free, and will feature a rare performance by Boston's Dave Godowsky. The second is at 8:30, a benefit for Showpaper, and is being brought to Manhattan by none other than Brooklyn's Todd P (and Manhattan's Less Artists More Condos, and Showpaper, and everyone else involved in promoting it). Asa Ransom, The Muggabears, Sigmund Droid, and Nymph are all playing the $10/all-ages bill.

Also coming up at the new downtown venue:
Jan 30 - Gogol Bordello: Non Stop / NYC Premier Party
Feb 06 - These Are Powers, Bird Names
Feb 17 - Medeski Martin & Wood
Feb 21 - Todd P Presents: Telepathe, Teengirl Fantasy, Hawnay Troof, Silk Flowers
Feb 27 - White Magic

that show at 92Y tonight was organised by Less Artists More Condos, not by Todd P. Todd P just listed it on his site to help get the word out

Todd P is the founder of Showpaper and he is promoting the show.

Todd isn't the promoter tonight, he just listed the show

this one time i was at a party and toddp was there by the food table. they had one of those 6 foot party subs and todd bet me that he could eat the whole thing, i accepted. He then cancelled the bet after getting 2 feet into it because he claimed that the swiss cheese didnt have enough holes in it and that they used mayosturd instead of the far more delicious mustardayonaise. Can you believe it? the nerve!

the gogol bordello web link may be experiencing heavy traffic - just keep refreshing the page.

so if todd is 'promoting' the fact that there is a show on his website, how exactly is he not considered a promoter in this case?

one time during titus andronicus's set at the yard this past summer a guard was trying to break up people jumping around and having a good time. and todd p got right in the guards face and kept saying YOU WORK FOR ME. I AM PAYING YOU. STOP. it was an intense few minutes.

One time Todd P was lifting a band's van out of a ditch by himself. Just as he was lifting the van (with bare hands) his security guard started a fight. Todd broke up the fight, changed 2 of the tires on the van and fucked my sister all at the same time.

FOR THE LOVE OF THE FSM, IT SHOULD BE "FEWER ARTISTS, MORE CONDOS"!

Does anyone know who this "Dave Godowsky" character is?

also the title of this post makes it sound like Todd P simultaneously "entered" Manhattan, "Dave Godowsky", Gogol Bordello etc. etc.

to the above two posts: perfect grammar is like being stuck doing it in the missionary position.

yo there is a LOT more to promoting a show than just listing it. you have no idea what it takes to organize shit.

did you ever think that the reason Todd P or whoever bothered to explain here that he wasn't the actual promoter of this particular show was because he wanted to be sure he didn't get undue credit for the real promoters' work?

toilet records (toiletrecords.com) also promoted the show along with Ariel Panero, and Joe (Showpaper)...End of story.

Because BV is listing the show here, that must mean he's the promoter too. duh.

Posted by Anonymous | January 25, 2009 2:54 PM

The list above says that Todd P presents the February 21st show at the same venue which means that Todd P one way or another is promoting shows at 92YTribeca now, even if he wasn't officially promoting the one last night which was a benefit for Showpaper that he founded.

I believe it is true that Todd P entered Dave Godowsky.

You're welcome. Wanna hang out sometime? I'll be the dude at the Market Hotel shows sitting by myself in the corner that smells like farts.
