Joan Osborne & Patti Smith @ Bowery Ballroom, Dec 30, 2007 (CRED)
Patti Smith played 3 sold-out shows at Bowery Ballroom in NYC over the past few days. The final one was on New Years Eve show which happened earlier in the night than the Les Savy Fav show at the same venue. Joan Osborne showed up at at least one of the shows, and Alejandro Escovedo opened on New Years Eve.
Mr. Brownstone played Bowery Ballroom recently. It was a very drunken affair - the kind of party that would go well with New Years. Bowery Presents thinks so too. Mr. Brownstone are playing New Years Eve at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. They go on at 9pm (early). Tickets are on sale.
A 9pm show in Brooklyn should leave plenty of time to get to Manhattan before the late-late Les Savy Fav show begins at Bowery Ballroom. I still don't know what time they go on (2 or 3?), but it's definitely after the Patti Smith show which probably doesn't even start until 10. Tickets for Les Savy Fav go on sale Monday November 26th.
Also happening in NYC on New Years: Dresden Dolls @ Manhattan Center, Dean & Britta @ Maxwell's, Moe @ Radio City Music Hall, Gov't Mule @ Beacon Theater, and Benevento/Russo/The Join/U-Melt @ Highline Ballroom. What else?

Patti Smith played the new Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (Sept 6, 2007) - two nights later than she was supposed to. I unfortunately wasn't there, but Edwina Hay was on hand do document the festivities. Her report includes the part where Patti humorously read from the Brooklyn Vegan comments. I'd be lying if I said I didn't think that was pretty cool.

Against Me! @ MHOW, Brooklyn, NYC - Sept 05, 2007 (CRED)
Though not completely finished inside, the new Brooklyn venue called Music Hall of Williamsburg opened with a show by David Dondero, Matt & Kim, and Against Me! last night. Already there are conflicting viewpoints in the comments. One positive:
just back from the show....it was super sweet! the venue isn't 100% done yet, but in solid shape and can't wait to see more shows in this space. for as much as people bitched about it opening a day late it's a far nicer and better venue (in every sense) then plenty of other "venues" i've been to in BK.One sort of negative:
The venue is nice, set up just like Bowery Ballroom and everything is brand new but sort of corny--leather couches, etc. It's a bit too slick and polished and made me miss the old Northsix. Also, the bathrooms are oddly situated right under the drums so it sounds like the floors are going to collapse. The security guys were assholes and gave a lot of people grief over minor bullshit. Honestly, I would probably only return there for bands I really really love who I couldn't see anywhere else--it wasn't a pleasant experience.The Patti Smith show has been rescheduled for tonight (Sept 6, 2007).

This might explain why Patti Smith's Bowery Ballroom shows sold out so fast. They're giving away free Bowery tickets with the purchase of Patti's new CD "twelve" at eight different NYC stores. It worked the other way around too - you get a CD if you bought a ticket first. More info below....
