Spirit Family Reunion @ BKNB 7/4/2014
Spirit Family Reunion

Fresh off playing Clearwater Festival in June, NYC old-school folk band Spirit Family Reunion stopped by Brooklyn Night Bazaar on the 4th of July for some foot-stomping American good times. They were joined by Odetta Hartman and Gunfight. We've got pictures from the night in this post.

Spirit Family Reunion will soon be hitting the road for some extensive US touring, including another NYC show at Central Park Summerstage on August 4 with Old Crow Medicine Show and Langhorne Slim. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The tour will also include a couple dates with Trampled By Turtles and longer run of dates with The Felice Brothers.

All upcoming Spirit Family Reunion dates are listed, along with more pictures and video of the of the Brooklyn Night Bazaar show, below...

Daniel Rossen in Austin earlier this month (more by Tim Griffin)
Daniel Rossen

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Daniel Rossen, William Tyler @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Grizzly Bear/Department of Eagles singer/guitarist Daniel Rossen put out his solo EP Silent Hour/Golden Mile back in 2012, and he's now on his first-ever solo tour which ends tonight in his hometown. Opening is Merge-signed avant-guitarist William Tyler, who has played in Lambchop and Silver Jews.

Hamilton Leithauser @ Joe's Pub (early and late)
Of all the Walkmen's members side projects, frontman Hamilton Leithauser's not surprisingly seems to be the one with the widest appeal. We'll have to wait until June 3 to hear his debut solo album, Black Hours, but this week he'll likely play much of it at his four Joe's Pub shows. The first two (7:30 PM & 9:30 PM) are tonight.

Rufus Wainwright, Lucy Wainwright Roche @ Town Hall
Singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright is currently on the road supporting his new best-of compilation, and tonight he'll bring those career-spanning favorites to NYC's Town Hall.

Pharoahe Monch @ SOB's
One half of Organized Konfusion, Pharoahe Monch releases his fourth solo album PTSD today and celebrates at SOB's. If you haven't listened to the album yet, you can do so by streaming it below.

Spirit Caravan, Pilgrim, Bezoar, Polygamyst @ Saint Vitus
Spirit Caravan is one of Scott "Wino" Weinrich's many bands, who are currently reunited and back on the road with Providence doomsters Pilgrim. Tonight they play Saint Vitus, the Brooklyn bar that partially takes its name from another Wino band, Saint Vitus.

Lonnie Holley, Arto Lindsay, Georgia @ Baby's All Right
Outsider artist Lonnie Holley has made fans out of (and since collaborated with) Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and Black Lips' Cole Alexander. Tonight he returns to NYC for a show with no wave legend and experimental composer Arto Lindsay (of DNA and others), which should make for an excellent night. Lonnie will be joined by opener Georgia during his set, and maybe Arto will hop on stage too?

Kadavar, Sons of Huns @ Mercury Lounge
Germany's Kadavar throw back to the early days of hard rock/metal (think Sabbath, Blue Cheer, etc), and though reviving that stuff is more and more common these days, Kadavar do it well. Tonight's the second of two NYC shows on their current North American tour.

Juana Molina, Xenia Rubinos @ LPR
Argentine singer/songwriter Juana Molina is currently touring the US in support of her terrific 2013 Spanish-language folktronica LP Wed 21. Opening tonight is the NYC-based Xenia Rubinos, who also sings some (but not all) of her music in Spanish (she is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent).

Langhorne Slim, Osei Essed @ City Winery
Indie folk singer Langhorne Slim will slim down to solo-acoustic mode for tonight's City Winery show.

William Fitzsimmons, Leif Vollebekk @ Littlefield
Two singer/songwriters team up for this show at Littlefield tonight, including Illinois' William Fitzsimmons and Canada's Leif Vollebekk.

Martin Bisi, Black Valleys, Larkin Grimm, Parlour Walls @ Glasslands
Sonic Youth/Swans/etc producer Martin Bisi releases his new solo album, Ex Nihilo, today and it's as weird as you'd expect from him. He celebrates with this release show that includes a great bill of friends like White Hills side project Black Valleys (get it?), Larkin Grimm, and Eula side project Parlour Walls.

Yellowbirds, Landlady, Lone Wolf @ Shea Stadium
Prolific musician Adam Schatz is releasing a new album with his main project, Landlady, on July 15 via Hometapes. He recently released the album's newest single, "The Globe," which you can stream below. Tonight's show is part of his ongoing April residency at Shea.

Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Tonight Alive, Sleepwave @ Best Buy Theater
Taking Back Sunday have been back with the lineup who made Tell All Your Friends for a few years now, and just released their second album since reuniting (and third overall by this lineup). The new stuff may lack the fire that made TAYF so great, but at least tonight's another chance to see the old favorites by the lineup who recorded them. This is their first of three sold out shows at Best Buy Theater on this tour.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Rough Trade NYC (more by Amanda Hatfield)
RTNYC

We just mentioned that Rough Trade's live shows are "on hold for a while" due to sound issues at the venue, and while some (like tonight's Tourist show) are being moved, others, like Andrew Bird (12/6) and DIIV (12/7), The Stepkids (12/9), Lucius (12/10) and Au Revoir Simone (12/17) have unfortunately been cancelled. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Other updates via Rough Trade's Twitter: Childish Gambino's show on Sunday, 12/8 at 6PM has been moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg but you still need to buy a copy of his new CD at the store that day to get a wristband.

Allah Las (12/6), Langhorne Slim / Felice Bros (12/11), and Cults (12/18) have been postponed. Stay tuned for updates on where those shows end up.

Rock Lottery

Please welcome the third annual Rock Lottery to Knitting Factory on December 1st:

The premise is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evenings performance venue. These volunteers are organized into five groups through a lottery-based chance selection. The five separate groups are then released to practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to create a band name and three to five songs (with a one cover-song limit). The groups will then perform what they have created that evening in front of a waiting audience.
This year's event will be MC'd by Corn Mo (MC TBA) and performers (so far) include current/former members of My Morning Jacket, Against Me!, Blonde Redhead (who are playing Irving Plaza on NYE), Javelin, VHS or Beta, YUCK, and Hospitality (who have a Bowery show coming up). Lineup is below and tickets are on sale now.

2012 lineup for Rock Lottery and video from previous events are below.
