On Tuesday night, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Anthony D’Amato, who turned heads back in 2010 for his Princeton dorm-recorded debut, celebrated the release of his New West Records debut, The Shipwreck from The Shore (Amazon & Spotify), […]
It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that the award for must-see of all must-sees this week goes to the inaugural grass clippings presents: Mipso at Rockwood Music Hall show on Friday. That […]

It’s official. As if the mass Christmas-tree murder taking place all over the five boroughs wasn’t enough, I think we all know the sad truth that none of us wants to admit to each other: the holidays are over; the festivity-induced funk is now ending; reality is setting in; it’s an uphill climb to spring, lovelies.
But THAT’S OKAY, because this week there’s a lot to be excited for, including the show I’ve been buzzing about in my head for some time now: Black Prairie at Union Hall on Wednesday. These Portland-ers give tradition a run for its money in an awesome way. They’ll be playing with John Wesley Harding. ‘Nuff said. (But if ’nuff not said, there’s video proof of their cool-factor below.)
Plus, honorable mentions go to Puss N Boots – the Norah Jones-fronted chick country band that continues their Thursday residency-of-sorts at The Bell House this week – and Leftover Cuties, who play Rockwood Stage 2 Tuesday night.

A late addition to this year’s Newport Folk Festival lineup, Anthony D’Amato, the 24-year-old singer songwriter who won praise after praise from high profile critics for his 2010 Princeton dorm-room-recorded-album, Down Wires (Amazon MP3 & Spotify), […]
