As mentioned before, Reggie Watts really loves to perform and will do so just about anywhere if he's got the time. He's headlined Webster Hall and yet still plays shows like the one he did at Glasslands over the weekend (1/13), a night that also featured bands Baby Alpaca and Shining Mirrors. Pictures from that show are in this post as is a video of Reggie performing.
Brooklyn has another chance to catch Watts do his thing tonight (1/15) at Union Pool as part of the monthly variety show The Moon that he has performed at before. Tonight's show is The Moon's fifth season premiere and also features Marina Franklin, Rob Cantrell, Chris Rozzi and musical guest The People vs. Larsen. $5 at the door and the show starts at 8 PM.

I get the feeling Reggie Watts just loves performing and will play anywhere. He's headlined Webster Hall but will show up at Cameo and do a whole set too. He's got a few tour dates this month including an NYC show at Glasslands on 1/13 with with Shining Mirrors and Baby Alpaca. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Later in the month, he'll be hosting a "Reggidency" at SF Sketchfest from Jan. 27 - 29, which includes an evening where his unique musical skills will be paired with dancer/choreographer Amy O'Neal; one that's a collaborative effort with Grammy-nominated Robert Glasper; and, perhaps, most excitingly, a "Sound Effects Summit" with Michael Winslow (of the Police Academy films). That would be something to witness.

Bachelorette @ Cameo
Annabel Alpers, known by her stage name Bachelorette played Cameo on March 4th with support from Baby Alpaca and Bermuda Bonnie. She has also been opening for the Magnetic Fields. Someone who saw the Albany show wrote:
"Bachelorette - the stage name of New Zealand singer-songwriter Annabel Alpers - opened the show with a hypnotic solo performance that was dripping with new wave-vintage electro-pop, from the throbbing, big-buzz backbeat of "Blanket" to the gauzy, reverb-drenched swirl of "Love Is a Drug." She accompanied herself on a pair of laptops, the occasional shake of a maraca or the tap of a tambourine and dreamy, drifting vocals as she wove a sparkling sonic tapestry."Bachelorette opens for the Mag Fields in Philadelphia tonight and then will take a couple weeks away from the road before jetting to the West Coast to support Stephin Merritt for another string of dates that head Eastward by month's end. Tour dates are listed below.
The new record by The Magnetic Fields, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, is out NOW via Merge and the band will hit Beacon Theater for two nights, April 3rd and 4th with Devotchka, as well as SXSW for a few shows. Tickets for 4/3 and for 4/4 are still available.
