The Theatre Shows: March 4, 5, and 6 with Black Taxi, The Shake + more!

On March 4, 5, and 6, an imaginative all-ages concert series presented by CitizenMusic and called The Theatre Shows will take place at The Players Theater in Greenwich Village. Each uniquely themed evening, headlined by gritty, dance-rockers BLACK TAXI (picture below), will showcase some of NY’s finest rock artists. Night one is the Masquerade Ball when Black Taxi, The Shake and Old Wives set the standards high for performance and costume. Prohibition Night, cast with Apollo Run, and Milo and The Fuzz, will expose the seductive and the bootlegger. On March 6, the finale of this creative series, deemed PoMo Night, challenges the imagination and takes a walk on the wild side to the sounds of New Madrid and Philly's Toy Soldiers. Between sets, F. Michael Haynie will entertain with acoustic sets, while attendants enjoy healthy juice-bar refreshments contributed by Liqueteria. This series is sure to be a memorable spectacle for the eyes and ears. No tickets will be sold at the door, they can be bought here. -Meijin Bruttomesso


New Video by The Raveonettes: Heart of Stone

Are The Raveonettesthe most productive band in the music industry or what? Here's another video from last years album "In and Out of Control".


Weekly Feature 191b: The Rex Complex - Live at Zebulon on March 2

The Rex Complex describes themselves as roots ruckus. Jeremy Gustin and Rex Hussman have been best friends since college, they've traveled the world to learn more about music and have created a sound that is unique and energizing. Their most recent release, A Delicious Victory is an eloquent buffet of intertwined genres from afro-beat to punk. It is a phenomenal album by a one-of-a-kind band. The Rex Complex will be playing at Public Assembly in Brooklyn on April 8th. - Read Meghan Chiampa's interview with the band here.


Weekly Feature 191a: We Are Country Mice - Live at Mercury 02.28

Relatively new to the scene, Brooklyn collective We Are Country Mice has released only a handful of tracks since forming in 2008. But the quality of their sound – muddy guitar riffs, beating drum rolls, distinct vocals and fluid bass lines – displays a talent way beyond their budding creation. Comprised of Ben Bullington (guitar), Jason Rueger (guitar), Josh Kothe-Levie (bass) and Kurt Kuehn (drums), the band calls upon influences such as Neil Young, Wilco and Modest Mouse to produce their signature sound. Midwesterners at heart (the band came to NYC to pursue their musical dream), We are Country Mice also adds a touch of country flare to the tracks. The foursome has already billed with such groups as Depreciation Guild, Surfer Blood, Freelance Whales and Drink Up Buttercup, and they may be the Brooklyn band to look out for in 2010. The members spoke to The Deli about their soon to be released debut album, coming to New York City, and canned beets, tacos and pizza (oh my!). - Read Cecilia Martinez interview with the band here.


The discreet power of Backwords - live at Pianos on March 3

With their gentle lo-fi waltzes and sparse crooner-less country-ish ballads, Brooklyn's own Backwords are bringing back optimistic atmospheres reminiscent of Camper Van Beethoven's unforgettable record Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart - minus that band's legendary violin of course. Shots in the Dark in particular - with its lack of pretension, pleasant crooked melody, and lyrics about friendship - is a song that has the rare power to keep you company. The band is currrently working on their upcoming album in their house/studio, and will be performing live at Pianos on March 3 and at Sycamore on March 5.
