Colin & Brooklyn Youth Chorus / Greg Fox
The Ecstatic Music Festival continued this past Saturday (3/22) at Merkin Concert Hall with sax great Colin Stetson (collaborator of Arcade Fire, Bon Iver and many others), joined by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. After their set together, Colin did a second set with an ensemble that included his sister Megan, Arcade Fire violinist Sarah Nefueld, and ex-Liturgy skins master Greg Fox, who also collaborated with Colin in NYC last month. Pictures of the show are in this post.
Ecstatic Music Festival wraps up this week with two shows: So Percussion with Buke & Gase on Wednesday (3/26), and Man Forever (fronted by Kid Millions of Oneida) with William Basinski on Saturday (3/29). You can still get tickets to both.
More pictures and the setlist from the Colin Stetson show below...
Sax wizard Colin Stetson is working on his new solo album which will be out at some point in 2013, but before that you'll get a chance to see him at an intimate NYC show with many guests at Zebulon on December 6. The show includes Colin doing a solo set, along with sets by Holly Miranda and her band, Sarah Neufeld on solo violin (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), and Lone Wolf (aka Ryan Saywer). Then Colin, Sarah and Ryan will do a collaborative set with Stuart Bogie, Adam Roberts, and Ryan Ferreira. No advance tickets for this show.
Colin Stetson is also part of the lineup for the 2013 Winter Jazz Fest which goes down across multiple venues in NYC on January 11 and 12. Colin will be playing The Bitter End on 1/12. Other artists on this year's tentative lineup include Nels Cline, Rafiq Bhatia, Debo Band, Vijay Iyer, and many many more. The full tentative lineup (with still more TBA) is below.

Jose & band
Jose Gonzalez, while he was in town to play Prospect Park with Junip, DJ the afterparty at the Bell House, and play a show for Rooftop Films (who were screening a movie about him), also played a private Red Hot & Rio2 party at the "Red Bull Loft" in SoHo on Monday (6/20).
Like the private Beirut loft party before it, the event was happening mainly to create promo videos for the upcoming charity CD. The other artists who played this one were Om'mas Keith and Mia Doi Todd, and they were all backed by a house band consisting of Stuart Bogie, Luke O'Malley, Miles Arntzen, Adam Weinger, David Ellenbogan, Mike Loren Lavalle and Chelsea Baratz.
That's 10 musicians total, but don't worry, you didn't miss much. They only played a total of three songs throughout the night (all of which appear on the CD), though actually they did play each song multiple times (until they got one they were happy with releasing). Some more pictures from the shindig below...
sometimes Superhuman Happiness dresses up
Superhuman Happiness, the afro-funk outfit headed by Antibalas's Stuart Bogie, kicks off a weekly Monday residency at Coco 66 tonight (10/4). The regular shows will have guests - some confirmed on the venue's website are Brian Chase of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on October 11th, comedian Matt Higgins on October 18th, and Jeremiah Lockwood of The Sway Machinery on November 1st.
The Coco 66 show tonight (10/4) will be after (presumably) the free "Music of Fela!" concert at Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 1 at 6:30pm (that's cause trumpeter Eric Biondo, Stuart and others play in both bands).
A video of Matt Higgins improvising with Stuart Bogie and drummer Miles Arntzen and Stuart Bogie's Superhuman Happiness at Public Assembly in 2009 are below...
