The Do-Over @ Beekman Beer Garden Sunday (via _chrisclassic)

Due to limited paying-attention-to-the-internet over this holiday weekend, we didn't realize until it was too late that Red Bull Music Academy's Do-Over party was moved from The Well in Brooklyn to Beekman Beer Garden in Manhattan on Sunday. Doors were at 2pm that day and they announced the venue change via email at 9:15am (and tweeted it even later).

As you can see in the picture above, the change didn't affect attendance at the outdoor South Street Seaport bar though. DJs, most of them surprises, included DJ Dezandres from Detroit, DJ Seano, Rhettmatic, Shlohmo, DJ Rob Swift, Onra, DJ Dynamix, and RBMA Particpants Emufucka & Trancemicsoul. If you were there, how was it?

Though we haven't looked into it, our guess would be that the Well was really trying to get it together, but just wasn't ready to re-open yet. UPDATE: The Well tells us they were in fact ready to open and that it was Red Bull who changed the venue that morning.

The Bushwick venue's "2013 Season Opener" is currently scheduled for Sunday, June 9 with Lee Burridge. We're rooting for them.

Beekman Beer Garden meanwhile, though open every day, also doesn't have much on their schedule aside from a concert by jam band moe. in June.

Front St. on Monday evening (via @iggsactly)

Lower Manhattan got it pretty good by Sandy, South Street Seaport included. The area was under multiple feet of water. The Seaport Music Festival, who put on the free shows down there, still had their stage set up. Some gear was ruined though they luckily had taken down the deck, lights, tent and canopy in preparation for the hurricane. No word on how the Beekman Beer Garden fared, though one Tweeter fears it is "definitely gone". Wine store Pasanella and Son was reportedly "decimated". Sadly, there has also been some looting at the Seaport's shops.

At a press conference this afternoon, Mayor Bloomberg, who recently confirmed at least 18 Sandy related deaths in NYC, announced that like the subways (Buses start returning tonight [10/30]), it may be three or four more days before power is restored to the tons of residents who lost it due to Hurricane Sandy. This includes all of lower Manhattan where, as you know, a whole lot of Manhattan music venues are. Which probably means no shows till the weekend for Pianos, Cake Shop, The Living Room, Arlene's Grocery, Fontana's, Rockwood Music Hall, The Slipper Room, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Santos Party House, Le Poisson Rouge and others.

Good news, apart from no power, the Ludlow St. area venues all came out ok, with folks at Pianos, Cake Shop and Arlene's Grocery specifically saying there was no water damage. Williamsburg clubs, are getting somewhat back to normal sooner, with shows at Union Pool and Glasslands tonight.

Elsewhere, Park Slope/Gowanus's Bell House reports that they "had some minimal flooding but will be back to business as usual by tomorrow. Working on fundraiser ideas for you now " Bar 4 in Park Slope lost their awning.

Swizz Beatz
Swizz Beatz

Long-running hip hop producer Swizz Beatz, who has worked with Jay-Z, T.I., Busta Rhymes and many others, has been named the Global Ambassador for New York City Health and Hospitals (via Black Celebrity Giving). He'll be formally presented as the new Global Ambassador at a fundraiser at Mural Pavillion at Harlem Hospital Center on Thursday (9/27) at 7 PM. Executive director Joe Shick said Swizz "is committed to using his creativity, his innovation, and his international stature to help spread the HHC message on a global scale to promote better health in our city and our world."

Swizz Beatz will also be performing at a Bud Light Lime-presented 'End of Summer' party at Beekman Beer Garden on Saturday (9/29) with Araabmuzik, Jermaine Dupri, and DJ Kiss. Admission is free but RSVP to turnupsummer@engineshopagency.com is required.

This Saturday's party is Araabmuzik's last show before he kicks off his tour with Sleigh Bells, which begins at Port Chester's Capitol Theater on October 5. Tickets for that show are still available. All Araabmuzik dates are listed below.

In related news, Megaupload, which was shut down earlier this year and which Swizz Beatz was involved in, is allegedly on its way back. Kim Dotcom, who launched the site, recently tweeted, "Quick update on the new Mega: Code 90% done. Servers on the way. Lawyers, Partners & Investors ready. Be patient. It's coming." He followed that with multiple tweets, saying, "Dear Megaupload friends please RT to tell @BarackObama & @MittRomney that you want #InternetFreedom and #Megaupload back." Though "the new Mega" may also be in reference to Kim's new Megabox music service, which he just posted a trailer video for today (9/26). You can watch that video below.

Jerry Garcia

Jerry Garcia, who died in 1995, would have been 70 years old today (8/1) and, as you might imagine, there are some celebrations happening all over the country. Probably the world.

Here in NYC, you can head to Beekman Beer Garden tonight (8/1) to catch 7 Walkers (featuring Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead, George Porter, Jr. of the Meters, Papa Mali and Matt Hubbard) and Dead satellite musician Steve Kimock with Bernie Worrell, Andy Hess & John Morgan Kimock, and Yarn. Tickets for that show are still available.

Perhaps more interesting to regular readers of this site is a concert happening on Friday (8/3) that will be broadcast on the internet from Bob Weir's TRI Studios. Dubbed "Move Me Brightly: Celebrating Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday," the tribute features Cass McCombs; Craig Finn and Tad Kubler of The Hold Steady; Chris Tomson of Vampire Weekend; former Grateful Dead/Jerry Garcia Band vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux; Jim Lauderdale; and Sam Cohen and Josh Kaufman of Yellowbirds , plus more usual suspects like Mike Gordon (Phish); Joe Russo (Furthur); Neal Casal (Chris Robinson Brotherhood/Ryan Adams & The Cardinals); Jeff Chimenti (Furthur); Jonathan Wilson; and Harper Sim. Amiable actor Luke Wilson will emcee the show and Bob Weir will be there too.

The tribute concert starts at 6:30 PM on Friday (8/3) and can be streamed via TRI Studios website or Yahoo Music. Bob Weir talks a little (very little) about the tribute in a video which you can watch below.

In other Dead news, on September 1 the band will release Spring 1990, an 18-CD box set featuring six complete shows from the tour of the set's title. If you don't want to plunk down $200 for that, Rhino will release a double-CD compilation culled from those recordings. You can watch a video of Bob Weir talking about that time period in the band's career below as well.

Yacht at South Street Seaport, Aug 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)

Yacht will play what promises to be a wild night at the Beekman Beer Garden on August 30. (Hopefully not this kind of wild.) The duo will headline what's being called Full Moon (yes it's a full moon that night), a party that also features Modular's Sneaky Soundsystem, Gigamesh, Tesla Boy, and FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P. There will also be "dazzling visuals" and "fire dancers." That sounds exciting. Could be a fun way ring out the summer. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and the flyer is below.

In addition to the Full Moon party, Yacht will keep themselves busy in August with a few festival dates as well as a few shows opening for Hot Chip in the Pacific Northwest. All Yacht tour dates are listed below.

Beekman Beer Garden Saturday night (more by Chris La Putt)
Black Lips

The Village Voice just issued this statement:

"The Village Voice is aware of the complaints about the aggressive nature of the security guards/bouncers at the 4Knots Music Festival After-Party and is taking them very seriously. These security guards/bouncers were not 4Knots employees, nor were they contracted through The Village Voice or 4Knots Music Festival. They work independently for the Beekman Beer Garden. Due to their actions with our audience, we will not be working with them again in the future. We apologize to anyone who was affected that evening."

"Security couldn't handle this shit! Black Lips fuckin killed it!!!" - Kyle Cameron

"Black Lips was fun. We tore down the barrier and security started fist fighting people. I'm soaked through." - Steve Lombardi


The Black Lips, who are known for their raucous live show, brought their usual antics to the 4Knots afterparty at Beekman Beer Garden at the South Street Seaport on Saturday night (7/14), but things got a little out of hand this time. The barricade was (not surprisingly) quickly ripped down by fans who broke into a sweaty pushing, moshing frenzy for the uncontrollable garage rockers. However, at this particular Black Lips show, the security guards were not having it. They began to rough up audience members who were getting crazy and allegedly ended up injuring some concertgoers. One of those claiming to be hurt emailed us and said, "getting dragged out in a choke hold is not my idea of a good time". He also sent us this picture he claims are "a few wounds inflicted by security"....


As shown in a video from the show which you can watch below, before going into "Modern Art," the band took to their mics to tell security to "calm the fuck down" and said, "You don't have to beat up anybody, it's just a rock and roll concert." A "Fuck that shit!" chant was also started and continued through the start of the song. The Village Voice, who presented the 4Knots festival and the Black Lips afterparty that this all went down at, point out that guitarist Cole Alexander, who had encouraged the crowd to "tear down that barrier" tried to help the fans who were getting hit, but he was shoved back on stage.

Many fans who were at the show took to twitter to talk about their experiences. @aewsome posted multiple tweets, saying, "Security has totally lost control of this Black Lips show. Arbitrarily roughing up people for no reason. Completely fucked up," and "Kids acting no different than any Black Lips show I've seen. This was seriously [some] of the roughest security I've seen."

UPDATE: The Village Voices issued a statement shortly after we posted this article.

As previously mentioned, earlier in the day there was also a fire at South Street Seaport while the actual 4Knots Music Festival was going on. You definitely can't say this year's fest (which Archers of Loaf headlined, but more about that in a bit), wasn't eventful.

Redd Kross

Speaking of Redd Kross, like Superchunk they were responsible for pioneering the pop punk sound that dominated the '90s, most notably doing so on their 1987 LP, Neurotica. The band reunited back in 2004, and now they're set to release their first new album of original material and it's with the same lineup they had on Neurotica. The new album is called Researching the Blues, and it's due out on August 7 via Merge (the label operated by Superchunk). You can grab an MP3 of that album's title track above, or stream it below. Though it's been a while, Redd Kross sound just as urgent on this new track as they do on their earlier records. Check it out for yourself. The album is available for pre-order at the Merge webstore and it comes with a free poster and button. Cover art and tracklist are below.

The Hold Steady/Caveman @ Beekman Beer Garden
The Hold Steady

As promised, everyone who showed up with a ticket (and then some) got in no problem to our free Hold Steady/Caveman show at Beekman Beer Garden in NYC, one of five total events that happened around the country as part of Evenbrite's Concert Confidential series on Saturday night (9/17). Each of the free shows had a charity attached, and ours was VH1 Save the Music Foundation (which we raised $4295 for!).

Though we were planning for a while, the date of the show was only announced 10 days earlier with the headliner revealed just 5 days before the show, "tickets" on sale just 2 days before, and the opener revealed just 1 day before.

Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, Eventbrite, the venue, the bartenders, the weather for staying cool and dry, everyone who came by, DJ Billy Jones from New Moods for playing sweet tunes before both bands, to Caveman for a jammin' set of tunes from their just-released debut album, and to headliner The Hold Steady for a raucous almost-2-hour set that never got boring (as usual). Check out their full setlist and more pictures from the whole show below...

Caveman @ Mercury Lounge

Caveman played a sold out record release show at Mercury Lounge in NYC last night (9/15). Picures are in this post.

And we can now announce that Caveman are in fact (as at least one smart detective guessed) opening our free Hold Steady show at Beekman Beer Garden (at the South Street Seaport) on Saturday night (9/17 -- tomorow!). Maybe because we put them on sale at midnight and waited until the last minute to announce, but free tickets are still available for those wanting to come (not many though). Caveman go on at 8pm. Hold Steady at 9pm. Get there by 6pm though because that's when we start letting people in (or get there even earlier and hang out at the beach).

Caveman's new album is out NOW. You can grab some tracks for free HERE. More pictures from the Merc show, where JPF opened, and a Yours Truly video they recorded in Brooklyn for the song "Great Life", below...

The Raveonettes
The Raveonettes

The Raveonettes played a free Beach Party at Beekman Beer Garden on Sunday (7/31) with Eternal Summers. The day party was the day before both bands played Maxwell's in NJ. According to The Tear-N Tan Files, "Opening up was Virginia's Eternal Summers putting on a pop/post punk set with a tinge of surf for a faster summer feel.... The Raveonettes played an amazing set with a 2 song encore, but still a way too short set. The intense distortion was made all the more beautiful by Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner's beautiful harmonies."

The sixth of six free Sunday shows at Beekman Beer Garden happens this Sunday (8/7) with Mission of Burma. If you haven't been there yet, the part-beach outdoor venue is around the back of the mall right on the pier at South Street Seaport.

George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic

Neither recent health problems or a battle with lawyers could stop the funk. George Clinton (that's him in the blue coat) just turned 70 and he celebrated with a multi-hour Parliament Funkadelic show at Beekman Beer Garden at the South Street Seaport in NYC last night (7/28).

Earlier this summer George played a free lunchtime show at Metrotech in Brooklyn. Ginzburg was at that one:

"Covering just about all their hits, and even throwing in a ten foot or so alien life form on stage, George danced, pranced, did poetry, and sang in that gravelly voice of his that won't make Al Green lose any sleep. Sure, he took a few uncharacteristic rests in a chair in back of the stage, but great this was. And when the twenty or so musicians jammed, it was indeed a joyful noise."
Pictures from the Beekman show are in this post. More of them below...

Two days after The Radio Dept and Asobi Seksu played South Street Seaport and one day after 4Knots and just hours after Hospitality played the Fulton Stall Market, Frankie Rose, Woven Bones, Xray Eyeballs & Davilla 666 took over Beekman Beer Garden at the Seaport for a free Sunday show (last Sunday was Cheeseburger & next Sunday is Swirlies).

Davila 666
Davila 666

Puerto Rico garage rock band Davila 666 are taping a performance for MTV Iggy in NYC on Wednesday, July 20th. MTV is "casting 50 lucky fans to be audience members at this once-in-a lifetime taping." You can enter to be one of the lucky at MTV Iggy's Facebook.

It would be better if they were playing a live set again today (7/17), but, as previously mentioned, Davila 666 will be in the house only to DJ the free Sunday show at Beekman Beer Garden. The live sets of the day will be delivered by Xray Eyeballs, Frankie Rose and Woven Bones. If you haven't figured it out yet, Beekman Beer Garden is at South Street Seaport, right around the corner from where Davila played yesterday (7/16) as part of the 4Knots Festival. Our full coverage of the fest is coming soon, but meanwhile check out more pictures from Davila's wild set below...

Woven Bones at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 (more by BBG)
Woven Bones

Todd P is promoting some good shows coming up this weekend, and a lot of them. There are three tonight (7/15) and two Saturday (7/16).

| "BAD BITCHES" games opening - alt.sexy video games |
Woven Bones | My Teenage Stride | Easter Vomit | Teen Witch
@ 285 KENT AVE

INDIAN REBOUND | Honey Dos | DDIILLIIAANN | Crazy & the Brains

I'M TURNING INTO | Dinosaur Feathers | Shark? | Sweet Tooth

ONEIDA | Notekillers | Call of the Wild | Gary Higgins

FRIENDS | New Sweet Bulbs | Vacation | Hunter

More details on each of those shows are below.

To quote Bill,

Dinosaur Feathers, Shark?, and I'm Turning Into are at Monster Island [Friday]. I'm Turning Into's debut album, Parcel of Marbles, just came out on cassette and digital download. It's worth a listen for sure, especially as you can download it for free this week only at their Bandcamp site.

The Monster Island show on Saturday (7/16) was curated by Onedia and includes folk legend Gary Higgins who recently released rediscovered material from the early 70s.

Woven Bones, who play 285 Kent tonight (7/15), have also been added to the Beekman Bear Garden Beach Party this Sunday (7/17) with Xray Eyeballs, and Frankie Rose. The guys from Davilla 666 have also been added as DJs. Xray Eyeballs also DJ the show at 285 Kent tonight. That's also an Xray Eyeballs shirt Woven Bones dude is wearing in the picture above. (Xray Eyeballs and Woven Bones sitting in a tree...).

Catch Woven Bones later this summer when they open for Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Glasslands on September 15. Tickets are on sale.

Cheeseburger & Hard Nips kicked off the series of free Sunday shows at Beekman Beer Garden on Sunday (7/10). The outdoor setting, complete with fake beach, tent, an amazing view, food and, well, beer, is the perfect setting for a summer show. According to Bill, it was a " sedate Cheeseburger show... which means [it was] only 82% insane." More pictures from the day below...

Cheeseburger @ BV-SXSW

Sunday (7/10/11) is the penultimate Sound Bites Series show with pow wow! who are currently finishing up their debut album. After garnering a lot of buzz (and playing what seemed like every week) back in 2009, they took most of last year off to regroup and rethink. With a slightly retooled sound -- they're definitely a little more '80s indie and a little less early '00s rock now -- they'll play the Fulton Stall Market at 3PM. I DJ before and after.

Then after the Sound Bites show, you should head over to the Beekman Beer Garden for the first of the summer's Beach Party shows. This week it's the wildness that is Cheeseburger, plus Hard Nips. I hope Beekman (formerly Water Taxi Beach formerly Spiegeltent) is ready for flying beer. This should be fun. With the truncated Seaport Music Festival schedule this year (and no Pool Parties) I'm glad more is going on down at the Seaport, one of my favorite places during the summer.
[This Week in Indie]

In honor of Cheeseburger's free show today, here's a set of unposted pictures from a BrooklynVegan SXSW party in 2010 at Spider House. They continue, along with the Seaport show flyers, below...
