Originally posted at Stupefaction: I recently received an email from Paul Tschinkel due to some of his videos I shared here, and over at James Chance Official.
He was happy to see them being put to use, and mentioned he would start
posting more. Well, it looks like he just might be doing that, starting
with this full episode of InnerTube from 1980 starring Levi & The
Rockats, Jayne County, and the Dead Boys, filmed at Max's Kansas City
and at CBGB.
As Paul himself says, "This 'Paul Tschinkel's Inner-Tube' program appeared on his Manhattan
Cable TV show in 1980. It features live performances at Max's Kansas
City and CBGBs in New York that epitomize the dynamic, exciting music of
the time. We see a riveting performance by the Dead Boys and a fast
paced one by Levi and the Rockats that also includes a guest appearance
by rocker Jayne County. A short piece of old time fiddling music, taped a
fiddling convention in Independence VA in 1973, rounds out the program."
The Gowanus All-Stars is comprised of 6 veterans of NYC's Alt. Country/Americana/Roots-Rock scene brought together by singer Spike Priggen to play an open-ended Monday night residency at Brooklyn's The Rock Shop (249 Fourth Avenue Brooklyn, NY). They'll be playing Honky-Tonk, Country-Rock and other Cosmic American Musics every Monday from 8-11.
I used to read this magazine religiously as a kid. I knew what all the NYC Punk and New Wave bands looked like years before most had records out. This is a really well done site, the magazines look great and the page flipping is animated very believably. Rockscenester via www.dangerousminds.net
I'll be in Milwaukee (!) for my 1st wedding anniversary but my fellow NYers should check this out.
"After two sold out summer soul revue-style shows in 2007, Chicago-based southern music label The Rabbit Factory, Inc. returns with a bigger and better line-up. Not since Atlantic Records foray into the American south or the golden age of soul music at the Apollo Theatre and Chicago’s Regal Theatre has the gritty sound of southern soul appeared up north with such force as with the Rabbit Factory Soul Revue. The vintage “chitlin circuit”-styled bill features classic southern soul artists performing with an eight-piece dance band, Wiley & the Checkmates, from Oxford, MS."
"The July 6th show will feature the core Rabbit Factory Soul Revue of The Checkmates performing with Herbert Wiley, the legendary Roscoe Robinson (Blind Boys of Alabama), Ralph ‘Soul’ Jackson (Spooner Oldham/Muscle Shoals) and Hermon Hitson (Jimi Hendrix/Isley Brothers/Joe Tex). This line-up has been receiving rave reviews from its high profile performances at SXSW and the Ponderosa Stomp. The show itself is part of the popular JellyNYC McCarren Park Pool Party series, opening for Ronnie Spector." Sunday, July 6th... Doors at 2PM.
"When it comes to photographs of New York's original, hallowed punk and post-punk era, the world has justly recognized important works by Roberta Bayley, Bob Gruen, Stephanie Chernikowski, George DuBose, Godlis, Ebet Roberts, and others. Perhaps flying just under that radar, but every bit as striking and iconic, are the images captured by Eugene Merinov. From 1977-1981 Merinov similarly and tirelessly trod the boards in front of the stages at CBGB, Max's Kansas City, Hurrah, Trax, Danceteria, Irving Plaza, TR3, Maxwells, Ukrainian National Hall, Paradise Garage, The Palladium, and the original Peppermint Lounge — sanctified names, all, in the history of the local New York City scene. Merinov was there three nights a week or more to capture all the action."
I'm available for apartment or house sitting in the greater New York City area. If you need your plants watered, or your cat fed, I'm your guy. Will also consider dog sitting. Situations in New Jersey, Connecticut and Upstate New York as well. So if anyone out there needs some sittin' done (or know someone who does) please contact me. I'm self employed and have a very flexible schedule.
