Geoff Rickly

Geoff Rickly's had a busy year with a new United Nations album and two singles with his band No Devotion. He's already set to kick off next year in style with a one-off solo show in Atlantic City on January 3, the first Saturday of 2015, at the Dante Hall Theater of The Arts. Opening that show is I Am the Avalanche/Movielife singer Vinnie Caruana and Back and Forth singer Matty Carlock. Tickets are on sale now, and there's a complimentary afterparty for the 21+ at The Boneyard. Show flyer below.

Vinnie Caruana has a few other solo appearances in the area, including The Studio at Webster Hall with John Nolan on 12/29 (tickets), and opening the NYC stop of Motion City Soundtrack's Commit This to Memory tour along with the ex-Passion Pit power poppers Team Spirit. He's also on the Boston and Silver Spring stops and you can still get tickets to all three.

A few days before the Webster show his band I Am the Avalanche plays a previously discussed NYC one-off at MHOW on Friday, December 26. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that IATA will be joined by the great newer Long Island punk band Iron Chic and The Gaslight Anthem's pals The Scandals. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Iron Chic also have a new split 7" with Low Culture (mems The Marked Men) on Dead Broke (Mike from Iron Chic's label) and Dirt Cult (Chris from Low Culture's label). Check out a stream of each band from that split (via Noisey) below...

Mulaney

John Mulaney's sitcom has not done so well in the ratings. FOX recently swapped it and Bob's Burgers' timeslots on Sunday, putting Mulaney in the 7:30 PM position which is often preempted by late-running sports. Has anyone watched it? On the bright side John is still a super funny guy and continues to tour. He's got an East Coast run this month that skips NYC but he'll be here next year, playing Carnegie Hall on March 14. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/18) at 11 AM.

All upcoming dates are listed below...

Bob Marley

In late October 1979, Bob Marley and the Wailers made their Apollo debut with a sold-out seven show run. These performances were very special to the band for several reasons. Harlem was where Marcus Garvey first reached out to the African American community hearkening them to "look to East Africa, for the crowning of the Black King" - an idea which helped kindled the early flames of the Rastafari Movement. Additionally, Marley's concert run at the Apollo was his attempt to connect with the black community in North America and spread the message of Pan-Africanism and global black unity.
As quoted above, reggae legend Bob Marley made his Apollo Theatre debut back in 1979 and now that concert will be commemorated with a tribute happening November 29 at the same venue. There's two shows (8 PM and 11 PM) happening that night and they will feature his backing band The Wailers, fellow reggae vets Third World and Maxi Priest, and Bob's son Ky-Mani Marley. Tickets for the show are on sale now.

Meanwhile, a new live Bob Marley album/film, Uprising Live!, comes out next week (11/25). Watch him playing "I Shot the Sherrif" from the film (via Esquire) below...

Swervedriver

UK heavy shoegazers Swervedriver are still working on their first new album since the late '90s.

It was part of a fundraiser for Adam Franklin & the Bolts of Melody 2013 album, Black Horses, and can be streamed in three parts below.
