JOE'S PUB presents John Lithgow, The Losers Lounge, David Gilmore, Jon Spencer's Heavy Trash, Uri Caine and much much more!!!
- Hi All,Still zooming off of Curumin's incredible set last night - see him at nublu tonight! - and getting set for an amazing week of concerts here, plus some top secret things you'll be hearing about down the line (sorry to be a tease, but I must.) I'll let you read below about all the happenings, but just a reminder - the NY Gypsy Festival continues here with two late night sets by dazzling instrumentalists including Husnu Senlendirici from Turkey, Yuri Yanakov Bulgaria and more - essential, essential stuff. And speaking of Gypsy traditions, Tuesday night's show as art of the European Dream festival, with the visionary pianist Uri Caine exploring the folk influences on Bela Bartok, with a jazz/classical/folk-hopping band that features Hungarian cimbalom (hammer dulcimer) master Miklos Lukacs and the brilliant clarinetist David Krakauer (Klezmer Madness) is sure to be stunning.Also, don't miss the inspiring documentary When Fried Eggs Fly, in a benefit for music education at PS3, which is featured in this a hit of the Tribeca Film Festival, focusing on the work of Black Rock Coalition stalwart Bruce Mack. Truly inspiring story of music education and community building at an elementary school, here in NYC, followed by a performance by Bruce's band Tricky Dilemma, with Marvin Sewell (Cassandra Wilson, Imani Uzuri) and Val-Inc (Bruce's bandmate in Burnt Sugar). And speaking of Cassandra, another musical collaborator of hers, and another longtime BRC head, guitarist David Gilmore (no, not the Pink Floyd guy - he spells his name differently)will celebrate the release of his new Cd with an amazing quartet featuring Ravi Coltrane on sax, Jeff "Tain" Watts, and a very special bassist we can't announce.Don't forget our next family matinee with star of film, television and Broadway John Lithgow on Sunday - only a handful of tix left. And The Loser's Lounge pay tribute to Talking Heads with 4 can't miss shows on Friday and Saturday - please note that Thursday's show has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.Sunday night - 2 special shows pairing Heavy Trash, the garage rockabilly project of Jon Spencer (of Blues Explosion) and Matt Verta-Ray with Canadian garage alt-country punks The Sadies. And speaking of Canada, our Upper North Side Canadian Music Series with the Canadian Consulate General continues on Wednesday with two shows by singer-songwriter Steve Poltz, best known for discovering Jewel and penning most of her biggest songs.Monday, the Emmanuel Jal show, featuring the acclaimed rapper from the Sudan, is certain to be especially inspiring. It's very close to sold out - don't wait on that.Remember, keep reading, cause just cause I didn't write about Jess Klein, the Kennedy's, the Onion Comedy series, a Grand Bal Senegalese with Sing Sing Rhythms, newgrass upstarts The Greencards with Liz Tormes and more, doesn't mean you shouldn't read about them, check the MP3s, and buy tix through our new phone number (and hopefully later this week, websales will have restarted.)And definitely make sure you take a note of new shows just added the the schedule, including the return of monthly benefit brunches for New Orleans starring Allen Toussaint, a special monthly residency with ETHEL called the ETHELab - with guests John King, gutbucket and Jill Sobule, new family matinees, New years with Sandra Bernhard and so many more - just read the right hand column for early notice about that.And don't forget to support the benefit for Friends in Adoption - check ww.friendsinadoption.org for more info on that.See you soon!

10/3 - AMY MILLAN of Stars
Lead Singer of Stars Performs Folksy Americana Tunes Solo
Stars vocalist Amy Millan has now released her first solo album, Honey From the Tombs, with 12 songs that were written between 1993 and 2000, predating her work with Stars and fellow Canadian indie rock favorite Broken Social Scene. Until last year, those songs stayed in the vault, apart from the occasional solo live performance (sometimes as Lady Lustre). Her solo work is a departure from what fans have come to expect from the textured sounds of those bands and instead explores folk and rural traditions in more of an Americana vein. Backed by the Whiteleys and a few familiar faces from her other bands, Millan's old and new C&W-flavoured ditties now see the light of day for all to enjoy.
TUES, OCT 3
