Satomi w/ Deerhoof at Ecstatic Music Festival 2013 (more by David Andrako)
Satomi

Manhattan Inn (632 Manhattan Ave) is continuing to host its free concert series this summer, and there's a couple interesting shows coming up, including former Psychedelic Furs keyboardist (and Loser's Lounge bandleader) Joe Mcginty doing his weekly piano karaoke tonight (7/2).

Another upcoming show is Sky White Tiger, the collective led by former Polyphonic Spree member Louis Schwadron, who has also worked with Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, Radiohead, and Elton John. They play this Wednesday (7/3) at 10 PM.

On July 7, former Shivers member/current Phosphorescent member Jo Schornikow will play a solo set at 9:30 PM.

And on July 14, Satomi from Deerhoof and Saya from Tenniscoats will play a collaborative set as Oneone, and support comes from Brooklyn indie rockers Celestial Shore.

Check out the full lineup at Manhattan Inn's site.

Villagers @ Manhattan Inn
Villagers

Irish indie folkies Villagers (the project led by Conor O'Brien) will be in NYC on June 11 at Bowery Ballroom (tickets go on sale today [4/12] at noon). But last night (4/11) Conor stopped in NYC by himself for a BrooklynVegan-presented solo show at the very intimate (as you can see from the picture above) Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint. Below the room's skylight in the center of the room, he did a 9-song set with material from the new Villagers album, {Awayland}, and their 2010 debut, Becoming a Jackal. It really is a lovely place to see a show like this.

Patrick Watson

Montreal's Patrick Watson is opening for Andrew Bird on his current tour which hits NYC Friday night (5/4) at Beacon Theatre. (Tift Merrit is opening the Saturday 5/5 show at the same venue.) If you can't make the Friday show or want to see Watson again, he's playing a free show at Brooklyn's Manhattan Inn on Saturday. Doors are at 4:30PM and the show is at 5PM.

The Manhattan Inn show is a release party for his new album Adventures in Your Own Backyard which was released this week, his first for Domino Records. You can stream it on Spotify and watch the video for "Into Giants" below.

After his tour with Andrew Bird wraps up, Watson will go on a headlining tour of the Midwest and West Coast. All tour dates are below.

Delta Spirit

BrooklynVegan and Brooklyn Brewery present a day of festivities with Delta Spirit on February 25th, in honor of the band's new self-titled album which is out via Rounder Records on March 13.

Beginning at 3pm, Delta Spirit will invade 3 bars in Williamsburg and Greenpoint to play select tracks from their new album. By the 3rd stop, fans will have heard the album for the first time in its entirety. They will then finish up with an invite/contest-winner-only, intimate, live show at Public Assembly at 6:45pm (see details below on how to win tickets to this show).
To be more specific, the party will look a little something like this:

Sir Richard Bishop @ MHOW 2009 (more by Ryan Muir)
Sir Richard Bishop

No Wave icon James Chance will be sitting behind the piano at Greenpoint/Williamsburg bar Manhattan Inn (a hangout recently described as "Pitchfork come to life") on Sunday, June 27th, from 8-11pm. He'll be playing "original piano compositions...for the first time ever solo on a grand piano" though that could hew closer to jazz standard than free jazz punk. Entry is free; you'll probably have to get there early to get a table (and order a few drinks).

Sort of in the same vein, worldly guitarist Sir Richard Bishop will be playing every Monday night in July (5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th) at Zebulon. Bishop brought his Freak Of Araby Ensemble to Music Hall of Williamsburg and Studio at Webster Hall on their tour last summer.

The James Chance flyer is below...
