Poor Gary

Van Halen, the Ronettes, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, R.E.M. and Patti Smith will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. The Times reports that both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar will be inducted with the Halen, but that there will be no love for interim sub Gary Cherone: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Backs New Members.

Fair Warning

Speaking of Van Halen, it turns out that the New Year has done nothing to change the news that Michael Anthony is longer in the band, having been fired by Eddie Van Halen. And replaced by Eddie's son. Seriously.

So, not only will both Sammy and Dave (presumably) be at the Rock Hall ceremony (perhaps Gary Cherone will scalp a ticket), but recently foisted Mike Anthony as well. How many songs before a fight breaks out? Or should that be measures?

Venues Shuffle

Luna Lounge is opening its new space in Williamsburg this weekend. As you probably know by now, the new space will be a larger venue than the Ludlow Street version. This venue will be larger than Mercury Lounge, but smaller than the Bowery Ballroom and close in size to Northsix The Williamsburg Music Hall. Luna will be open on weekends only for the first few weeks.

Sin-é is expected to close this spring. Oh well.

Battlestar Bloopers

The second half of season 3 of Battlestar Galactica began on Sunday night with Rapture. Despite some weaker standalone episodes in the middle of the first half run, the Eye of Jupiter/Rapture cliffhanger didn't disappoint. Welcome home, Mr. President.

The show has already wrapped filming for season 3. The blooper reel has found its way on the the internets:


Mancino is yet another band from Brooklyn. The three piece is set to release their new full-length, Manners Matter next week, preceded by a CD release party at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday, Jan. 27.

Here's the fun and clever video for the catchy (if hard to spell) song "Hetchie Hutchie Footchie."

The Bosch, Hymns, Mancino @ Mercury

All in all, a fun show on Saturday at the Mercury.



The Bosch:


I was very impressed with Mancino, who go to great lengths to recreate the studio sound live, with all three members picking up extra instruments as the songs demand. Their new album, Manners Matter is out today.

We in The Bosch just finished recording for a new EP last week:

The recording journal recounts the process in detail.

Jazz: The Lost Years Wiki

Behearer: "An interactive archive of jazz and creative music recorded between 1970 and 1989. Who says jazz died in the seventies? This is a database for documenting and discussing one of the richest—most overlooked and underrated—eras."

NY Times: In the Blogosphere, an Evolving Movement Brings Life to a Lost Era of Jazz: " But over the last six months, a far-flung contingent of musicians and aficionados has made an effort to upend that prevailing notion, armed with stacks of vinyl, high-speed Internet and a shared conviction that [jazz in the 1970's was] really far from moribund. Along the way, they touched off the year’s most animated public discourse on jazz, a democratic exchange that culminated last weekend in the debut of behearer.com, an interactive database devoted to the music’s most conflicted period."

Where music placements serve character, not hipness

New York Times: ‘Office’ Songs in the Unhip Keys of Life and Karaoke: "If a song is popular now, don’t expect to hear it on ‘The Office’ until late next year."
