Neil Young at Farm Aid 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Farm Aid

The 2014 Farm Aid Concert happens on September 13 in Raleigh, NC. As usual, the Farm Aid founders Neil Young, Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp are playing, and this year's also includes Jack White as a headliner. Also on the bill is Farm Aid board member Dave Matthews, as well as Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jamey Johnson, Delta Rae, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Carlene Carter, Pegi Young & The Survivors, and Insects vs Robots. Tickets are on presale now.

This comes after Jack White's Third Man Records released a Neil Young box set and after rumors that Neil and Jack were releasing an album of duets, which ended up not being true.

MMJ

2013 must have been a big success because Jim James and company are doing it again:

Today, Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery Presents proudly announce the second edition of My Morning Jacket's One Big Holiday - the band's ultimate fan experience and destination concert event. My Morning Jacket brings their epic live performance, and 2500 lucky fans as witnesses, back to the fully renovated Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya from January 31-February 4, 2015 for a 4 night all-inclusive concert adventure of a lifetime.

"We are so excited for this second year of One Big Holiday...the second of what we hope will be many more to come! The first one was so beautiful we just knew we had to do it again...what could be more fun than spending quality time with a bunch of sweet folks- old friends and new- in a beautiful place celebrating music/art/peace and love!!! Let's get together and celebrate!" - My Morning Jacket

After bringing the heat last year in the stellar concert courtyard within the resort, One Big Holiday will once again feature three full shows under the stars by My Morning Jacket. Once again returning to join the band on this adventure will be Preservation Hall Jazz Band, as well as newcomers War On Drugs, Dr. Dog, Dawes and Sylvan Esso who will each perform one show, plus special guest DJ Biz Markie. Fans are also in for a special treat as Band of Horses will perform two full shows, including one acoustic performance as the sun goes down.

Tickets and more info at the event's site.

MMJ have no other upcoming dates at the moment, but Sylvan Esso do.

Darlene Love at "Right 2 Rock" benefit in October (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Darlene Love

The holiday season is upon us, and its spirit and celebrations are just about everywhere you look. If you're looking for some musical ways to celebrate in NYC, here's a few options.

Like she usually does, Darlene Love is celebrating the holidays at BB King's. She already played one of her shows there earlier this month (12/6), and since we last spoke, she's added two more happening on Friday (12/20) and January 4. Friday's show is sold out (but the venue says tickets may be available the day of the show), and tickets for the 1/4 show are available.

Other previously discussed holiday shows at BB King's include Darlene's fellow A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector singer Ronnie Spector (of the Ronettes) on Sunday (12/22) (tickets), and Jewish a cappella group The Maccabeats on Christmas (12/25) (tickets).

Street Dogs, the Boston punk band fronted by former Dropkick Murphy Mike McColgan, will play "Wreck the Halls" at Highline Ballroom on Friday (12/20) with Chosen Ones and Done With You. Tickets are available.

Doveman collaborator Justin Vivian Bond and friends are playing holiday shows at Joe's Pub on Sunday (12/22) and Monday (12/23). The shows are billed as "Let It Show!" and the description reads, "Celebrate the return of the light with Justin Vivian Bond and friends with an evening of Holiday inspired songs and stories. Expect surprises! (bring your own lumps of coal and watch them turn into diamonds) Keywords: starstruck, babies, booze, ox and ass. Oh Come All Ye Faithful!" Tickets for both shows are available.

Also at Joe's Pub on Christmas Eve is the previously discussed Baby Dee & Little Annie show. Tickets for that are still available.

While Union Hall won't be having any music, they will be open on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the following day (12/26) to celebrate the holidays. The kitchen will be closed, but the bar will be serving holiday-themed drinks, and they'll have Christmas bocce ball and a fireplace going. The venue opens at 4 PM on 12/24 and 12/26 and 5 PM on 12/25.

Like last year, The Bell House will host the Harry Potter Yule Ball on Saturday (12/21) featuring sets from Harry and the Potters, The Potter Puppet Pals, Lauren Fairweather, and half-Mad can o' Destroy. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

And another Christmas Eve option is 'Christmas Eve for the Jews' with comedians Joel Chasnoff, Judy Gold and Todd Barry at City Winery on Christmas Eve. This one's sold out, but you can sign up for the waiting list in case tickets become available.

Brooklyn Bowl has holiday celebrations all weekend with Jimmy Hill and the Allstarz Band featuring Black Velvet (aka James Brown Jr) at the early show on Saturday (12/21) (tickets) and Jonathan Toubin's Soul Clap and Dance-Off with guest selector James Chance at the late show (tickets). Then on Sunday (12/22), the Preservation Hall Jazz Band does their Creole Christmas show at the venue (tickets).

Those are just a few holiday-themed music options in NYC. What else?

Johnny Marr @ The Fillmore in SF earlier this month (more by Chris Tuite)
Johnny Marr

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Johnny Marr @ Webster Hall
The man who provided the music to "Greatest Album of All Time" (and a few others that are, y'know, up there) makes a second trip through NYC in support of his solo album The Messenger. Yes, he does do Smiths songs, and he sings them pretty well too. Will Andy Rourke show up tonight?

SUBWAY REMINDER: the L Train is not running at all this weekend between 8th Ave in Manhattan and the Myrtle-Wyckoff stop in Brooklyn.

Reigning Sound, The A-Bones @ Brooklyn Bowl
This is part of Norton Records' Hurricane Sandy First Anniversary Blast weekend and tonight's shows are special pairings. Memphis garage soul band will be joined by La La Brooks of '60s girl group The Crystals; and the A-Bones will be joined by Dirtbombs frontman Mick Collins.

Jonathan Toubin (Soul Clap & Dance-Off) @ Brooklyn Bowl
After Reigning Sound, stick around Brooklyn Bowl for Jonathan Toubin's regular dance party/contest.

Steve Reich - "Radio Rewrite" @ Metropolitan Museum of Art
Tonight at The Met, multiple Steve Reich pieces will be performed by the Alarm Will Sound ensemble, though this is most exciting because its the NY premiere of "Radio Rewrite," Reich's piece inspired by Radiohead's "Everything In Its Right Place" and "Jigsaw Falling Into Place."

The Invisible Hand, Drunk Tiger, Travis Morrison (ex-Dismemberment Plan), Icewater @ Baby's All Right
Psych weirdos The Invisible Hand are headlining this show, which is part of their East Coast tour, and if you're going be sure to catch The Dismemberment Plan's Travis Morrison, who's doing this solo show in the midst of D-Plan's reunion tour.

Slow KnightsB, right Light Bright Light, Heloise & The Savoir Faire @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Tonight's free BK Bazaar musical entertainment is headlined by Slow Knights, which is Scissor Sisters' Del Marquis who makes blue-eyed, electrofunk soul.

Heliotropes, Blaak Heat Shujaa, Mirror Queen @ Cake Shop
Parisian trio Blaak Heat Shujaa are signed to Anton Newcomb's Tee Pee Records, but aren't your typical post-VU/JAMC psych-rock combo. Check out the video for their 11-minute song "The Obscurantist Fiend" below.

Chris Cornell, Bhi Bhiman @ Beacon Theater
After reuniting Soundgarden for a new album and sold-out tours, Chris Cornell is back in solo mode for this show at Beacon.

Jon Hopkins
Hopkins

Jon Hopkins, Clark, Nathan Fake @ Santos Party House
Fans of electronic music take note, the double billing of Jon Hopkins and Clark is not one to miss. Jon's newest album is one of the finest IDM releases of the year with its gorgeous post-rock-inspired atmospheres, and Clark has pretty consistently been one of Warp's finest. Nathan Fake, who opens this show, collaborates with Clark on his new LP. Note: Hopkins is on early, 9 PM.

The Beets, Jimmy Whispers, Flower Girl @ Glasslands
It's a new line-up for The Beets these days, and the last time we saw them it involved a fairly intricate live show that fluctuated between acoustic and electric.

Toons, Spook Houses, Palehound, Dead Wives, Manors @ Muchmore's
This is an excellent bill of raw, DIY-style rock, including sets from the anthemic rockers Spook Houses, the singer-songwritery noise rock of Palehound, Speedy Ortiz-related Dead Wives, Philly lo-fi trio Manors, and Toons.

Gringo Star, Ski Lodge, New Myths, Las Hormiguitas @ Pianos
Atlanta garage rock band Gringo Star recently released Floating Out To See which you can stream in full here. Ski Lodge, whose debut album is quite good, open.

Daytona, The Tony Castles, Darlings, Candide @ Shea Stadium
Daytona, the band featuring ex-members of Harlem, released their debut LP via Ernest Jenning, and you can stream a track below. Tonight's the record release show and the openers are good too.

Gary Clark Jr., Wild Feathers, Max Frost @ Terminal 5
Gary Clark Jr. plays the kind of blues guitar that even your dad can get down with, and he'll be bringing his licks to NYC for two shows this week (both sold out). He already played the legendary Apollo on Thursday and tonight he'll be at the big Terminal 5.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band @ Apollo Theater
New Orleans jazz legends head north for this show at the equally legendary Harlem venue.

Kaiju Big Battel @ Stage 48
Ever wish wrestling was more like a Japanese monster movie? It is in Kaiju Big Battel.

Witchtrap, Villains, Ancient Wound, Throaat @ Saint Vitus
Villains have been sharing their unique breed of "street metal" for nearly a decade, and their debaucherous ways are still going strong.

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

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Desaparecidos @ Voodoo Fest Day 1 - 11/1/13
Voodoo Day 1
Voodoo Day 1
Soundwave

"The Friday Voodoo line-ups are usually pretty slow, so I came into City Park expecting to have a lot of downtime (which ended up being a good thing because for some reason Voodoo never deems it necessary to label anything, so every stage is always unmarked).... I had some time to kill before the night truly began, so I marveled at all of the extraordinary costumes festival goers brought to the park (Walter White was an obvious favorite).

The night began with Desaparecidos. I'm a huge fan of post-hardcore--I love Fugazi, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, you name it, I probably at least like it. I've also been to (probably more than) my fair share of post-hardcore shows (getting stuck in an Against Me! mosh pit is arguably the punkest thing I've ever done), so when I say that Desaparecidos's Voodoo performance was the best post-hardcore show I've ever seen, it definitely means something. Conor Oberst definitely brought his best cynical self to the show, spouting political statements and really getting into the music with major head banging." [The Daily Reveille]

Other sets on Voodoo day 1 included Anamanaguchi, Those Darlins and New Orleans's own Preservation Hall Jazz Band, all three of which also had over to our Soundwave stage hosted by the funny Dave Hill and Billy Jones (Soundwave schedule HERE).

The day's big headliner was Pearl Jam, who recently played two big shows at Barclays Center, and whose...

headlining set [at Voodoo] started emotionally when guitarist Mike McCready introduced Steve Gleason, the Washington state native who settled in New Orleans after his days with the New Orleans Saints ended. Stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, the wheelchair-bound Gleason rolled to declare, in his computer-generated voice, "This is my hometown; this is my hometown band." Gleason's presence lingered throughout the show as McCready wore a Team Gleason T-shirt and Eddie Vedder, a wristband. Vedder later dedicated the show and 2006's "Inside Job" to Gleason and his family, and announced that the band let Gleason write the set list -- which led to the inclusion of a quiet "Chloe Dancer" alongside a number of songs from the new Lightning Bolt. [SPIN]
Pearl Jam's full setlist and pictures from the whole day, costumed attendees included, are in this post. Pictures from Day 2 are HERE. More Day 1 below....

Dave Hill & Billy Jones will reunite in New Orleans (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Soundwave

Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and The Cure co-headline the Voodoo festival in New Orleans this weekend. Anamanaguchi, Those Darlins, The Gaslight Anthem, F. Stokes, Matt & Kim, Cults, Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra and many more will also play sets as part of the New Orleans-music heavy, but eclectic 3-day lineup. Check out the full festival schedule.

This is also the 5th and final festival of 2013 that you'll find a Toyota Soundwave tent where BrooklynVegan, SPIN and Purevolume will be set up all weekend with host Dave Hill, BrooklynVegan co-host Billy Jones, and a full schedule of additional live interviews and sets that you won't find on the festival's main schedule.

Stop by today/Friday to catch a live interview with Anamanaguchi at 2:30 and one with Preservation Hall Jazz Band at 4:00, right before a live set by Those Darlins. Saturday Cults play a set at 1pm before rapper F. Stokes takes our stage. Sunday we get a set by Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra shortly after their earlier bigger stage show.

When festival artists aren't playing or talking to us, Dave Hill and Billy Jones will be telling jokes and spinning tunes. Please stop by and heckle them, and check out our full Soundwave schedule below...

PHJB @ Voodoo 2010 (more by Alysse Gafkjen)
Preservation Hall Jazz Band

The legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Band are on the road, hitting the Bing Concert Hall in Stamford, CT on 9/29 before returning to the Voodoo Festival in their hometown of New Orleans on 11/1, and then coming back to NYC to headline the legendary Apollo Theater on 11/16 (tickets to the Harlem show are still available). All tour dates are listed below.

Obits

Cosmic Psychos

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Obits, Prince Rupert's Drops, All Nines @ The Bell House
Obits third album, Bed & Bugs, just dropped on Sub Pop and it's their most varied album to date, but still a rager -- and maybe the best thing they've done yet. As they've done with their previous two LPs, they play a release show at The Bell House tonight.

Cosmic Psychos, M.O.T.O, Degreaser @ Cake Shop
Australian farmers/proto-grunge band Cosmic Psychos are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band and are touring North America for the first time in a very, very long while. Tonight's the second of two shows at Cake Shop

The Beets, The Wrong Words, Lame Drivers, and Piano Movers @ Shea Stadium
San Francisco trio The Wrong Words make late-'70s style power pop, a sweet and crunchy part of your complete breakfast. Pour yourself a bowl tonight and pick up a copy of their just-released second album, Everything is Free (which you can stream at Spotify).

Beach Day, Mozes and the Firstborn @ Cameo Gallery
Florida's Beach Day do a pretty good job of bringing '60s girl group vibes into our current day, as you can hear on their Kanine Records debut, Trip Trap Attack.

Ejeca, JDH & Dave P @ Cameo Gallery
The breakout of the nu-house scene is becoming unstoppable, and tonight, another of its worthy purveyors, Belfast's Ejeca, comes to NYC for a FIXED party at Cameo. Stream a track of his below.

Odonis Odonis, Eraas, HSY @ Death By Audio
If you like your rock dark and heavy, Death by Audio is the place to be tonight. The bill's got two Toronto bands -- garage-psych band Odonis Odonis and sludge punks HSY -- and it's rounded out by local Brooklyn goths Eraas.

Alex Winston, Echo Friendly @ Glasslands
NYC singer Alex Winston has been pretty quiet since the shows she was playing surrounding the release of quirky pop 2012 record, King Con, but she's now got a new song under her belt (stream below) and her first local show in a while.

Parquet Courts, Guards, Fletcher C. Johnson @ Havemeyer Park

Nellie McKay @ DROM
Witty, charming and multitalented, singer-songwriter Nellie McKay just wrapped up a run of her lauded off-Broadway show, Old Hats, and tonight plays two very intimate shows.

The Upper Crust, Los Dudes, The Rakehells, Wild Rompit @ Bowery Electric
Boston's The Upper Crust have been doing their schtick -- 18th Century aristocratic fops playing AC/DC style rawk -- for nearly 20 years, and yet the joke somehow hasn't really gotten old.

Brooktober Fest w/ J Roddy Walston & the Business and more (2 PM)
This day of free music happens on the East River in WIlliamsburg (5 N 11th St) with music from J Roddy Walston and The Business The Warden and FAME, EYE RA HAZE Justina Valentine, Katie Costello, Soul Junkies, and DJ Adam (of Lordz of Brooklyn).

Vampire Weekend at Roseland in April (more by Robert Altman)
Vampire Weekend

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Vampire Weekend, Solange, Sky Ferreira @ Barclays Center
FIve years ago, when "A-Punk" was playing everywhere you went, it wasn't entirely predictable that Vampire Weekend would still be achieving baroque pop excellence three albums in. But that's what they've done, and in celebration of that, tonight they try out their skills as an arena rock band at Barclays Center. Get there early for the Dev Hynes-associated pop of Solange and Sky Ferreira.

Pixies, Parquet Courts @ Bowery Ballroom
Pixies might have lost Kim Deal as a member (they have Kim Shattuck of The Muffs in her place) and you might not be huge on their new EP, but this is still three of the four original members of one of the most classic indie rock bands of our time, playing relatively intimate venues. Tonight they wrap up their four-night run in NYC at Bowery Ballroom. Parquet Courts, who can headline a venue that size on their own (and will do so soon) open the show.

Cosmic Psychos, Pampers, Call Of The Wild @ Cake Shop
Australian farmers/proto-grunge band Cosmic Psychos are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band and are touring North America for the first time in a very, very long while. Tonight's the first of two shows at Cake Shop and is with one of NYC's best new(ish) bands, Pampers.

'Blokes You Can Trust' screening @ Over the Eight
While in town for the Cake Shop shows, Cosmic Psychos are also screening their documentary 'Blokes You Can Trust' each night. Tonight it's at Over the Eight and Saturday it screens at Videology, both in Williamsburg.

Charles Bradley and The Menahan Street Band, The Budos Band, Naomi Shelton & Gospel Queens @ Williamsburg Park
It might be a bit colder out than it was for the other Williamsburg Park shows this summer, but throw on a sweater and enjoy some classic soul from the great Charles Bradley.

Nude Beach, Suspicious Beats, Honey @ Mercury Lounge
Brooklyn rockers Nude Beach, who take a punky approach to the classic-style of tunes of Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello, play one of their many local shows at Mercury Lounge tonight. Always a good time.

The Selecter @ Gramercy Theatre
While not as well known as their 2-Tone brethren, UK ska vets The Selecter are still essential listening for anyone who owns an album by The Specials or The Beat. Singer Pauline Black is still a pistol live, too.

Phaeleh, The-Drum @ Glasslands
UK atmospheric dubstep producer Phaeleh is over in the US right now, and tonight he'll be bringing the vibes to Brooklyn for a show at Glasslands. Opening is Chicago's also-impressive production duo The-Drum.

L-Vis 1990, Nick Hook @ Le Bain
Two regulars on the NYC electronic scene, L-Vis 1990 (Night Slugs) and Nick Hook (Fool's Gold), team up for a party at Le Bain tonight.

Patti Smith @ Metropolitan Museum Of Art
Patti Smith just announced some club dates, but if you've got tickets to tonight's sold-out event at the Met, you can see her in a less-rock environment doing a tribute to Hildegard of Bingen.

2562, Martyn, Contakt @ Output
Two futuristic dubstep producers, 2562 and Martyn, will join forces to keep the bodies moving all night at Williamsburg dance club Output. NYC's Contakt kicks things off.

Death In June @ The Bell House
While Douglas P is the sole orignial member at this point, uber-influential and controversial neofolk band Death in June are still pushing buttons.

DTCV, No Sky God @ The Bowery Electric
Jim Greer spent time in Guided by Voices and, for many years, was one of SPIN's best writers. His band DTCV (pronounced "detective") make post-VU indie rock.

Jenny Owen Youngs, Mal Blum, Stephen Brodsky @ Union Hall
Cave In's Stephen Brodsky is about to play with his riff-heavy side project Mutoid Man at Saint Vitus on Monday, but tonight he takes his softer solo project to Union Hall, where he'll be joined by fellow singer/songwriters Jenny Owen Youngs and Mal Blum.

Heatsick, Maxmillion Dunbar, Aurora Halal @ 285 Kent Avenue
Two experimental electronic musicians, Heatsick and Maxmillion Dunbar, are teaming up to melt minds at 285 Kent tonight. Mutual Dreaming's Aurora Halal is on the bill too.

Bad Side, Fuck SS, Brain Slug, Pleasure Industry @ Acheron
Bad Side, who Paint It Black called the best current hardcore band in Philly, and who will open for Kill Your Idols at Santos in November, will be in NYC tonight to headline a show at Brooklyn punk/metal club Acheron. Also on the bill is fellow Philly band Fuck SS and two Brooklyn punk bands, Brain Slug and Pleasure Industry. Stream Bad Side's just-released Everybody Wants Something From Me 7" below.

Coke Weed, Light Heat, Peter Bauer (of The Walkmen), pow wow! @ Shea Stadium
Peter Bauer is pulling double duty at this show tonight. The Walkmen bassist is playing as part of Light Heat (ex Mazarin) and is also making his solo live debut tonight.

Fred Frith @ Roulette
Avant-garde guitar great is performing his 1980 album Gravity at Roulette with a large group of musicians. If you can't make it tonight, he does it again tomorrow too.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band @ McKittrick Hotel
It's the first of two nights for My Morning Jacket collaborators Preservation Hall Jazz Band at McKittrick Hotel (where they also did a residency in July).

San Fermin, Alexandra Steward @ Le Poisson Rouge
Making music equally indebted to indie rock and theatre, San Fermin released their debut album this week and tonight's the record release party. Fans of the Dessner brothers, DIrty Projectors and RENT, take note.

The Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society, Dave Hill @ Littlefield
Fleetwood Mac's world tour has already hit NYC so what's a fan to do tonight? Go see this skilled tribute act perform Tusk in its entirety. Plus our pal Dave HIll opens and, just guessing, might make an appearance for a guitar solo or two.

Ian Hunter @ City Winery
He's not a young dude anymore but former Mott the Hoople singer Ian Hunter still wears shades onstage. His most recent album, When I'm President , got pretty good reviews.

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

Sasquatch

Says the PR

The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 24-27 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The
Gorge
, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.

Sandy Relief

My Morning Jacket will join Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Joseph Arthur, Nicole Atkins, River City Extension, Tangiers Blues Band and special guests for a Hurricane Sandy Benefit at Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ on January 2, 2013:

"Following Hurricane Katrina, the response from around the world was overwhelming," say Ben Jaffe, creative director of Preservation Hall Jazz Band. "Now it's our time to give back to a devastated community where many of our friends, family and supporters call home. In New Orleans, we turn to our music during hard times. It offers us hope and the feeling that things will be better. We are doing what we always do during hard times: celebrate life. Hopefully this will bring some joy to the residents of the devastated region at a time of great heartache."
Proceeds from the show will benefit multiple Jersey Shore-related charities, including Coastal Habitat for Humanity, The Food Bank of Monmouth/Ocean Counties, Waves for Water, Food For Thought By The Sea, and RebuildRecover. In addition, MMJ will donate a portion of every ticket sold to their upcoming shows at Capitol Theatre in Port Chester and in Boston at Agganis Arena to charity as well.

In other news, Jim James is preparing to release his solo LP Regions of Light & Sound of God, due on February 5. Check out "Know Til Now" below, and preorder your copy if so desired.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Preservation Hall, at 726 St. Peter Street, started in 1961 as a place where longtime New Orleans musicians could play the city's most traditional jazz. It gathered a core Preservation Hall Jazz Band that performs regularly at the hall itself, with personnel gradually changing through the years.

Ben Jaffe, the bassist and sousaphone player who is the group's current creative director, is the son of the band's previous director, Allan Jaffe. Other members, including the drummer Joe Lastie, the trombonist Freddie Lonzo and the clarinetist Charlie Gabriel, come from multigenerational musical families...

...the Preservation Hall Jazz Band showed how easily it could hop from era to era. It could work like a rhythm-and-blues horn section or a tightly arranged little big band if need be, but it could also switch back into the polyphonic glories of vintage New Orleans jazz, in which nearly every instrument seems to improvise around the tune at the same time. [NY Times]

New Orleans royalty the Preservation Hall Jazz Band are about a week into their summer tour of that will bring them to Symphony Space on June 13. Tickets are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter are below.

All PHJB tour dates and a short documentary about Preservation Hall are also below.
