Good morning, Dig Nation! We have a very exciting announcement today. We will be hosting our very first "Those Who Dig presents" live show on November 14th at Muchmore's in Williamsburg featuring friends of the Dig Oh! My Blackbird, Palomino, and more! Hope to see all of our NYC readers there!
For Dave and I, it has been nothing but an incredible pleasure to get more involved in our local music scenes in Baltimore and Brooklyn. We've done interviews, attended shows, created podcast episodes, reviewed albums, shared songs, and more. It seemed like a perfect extension of what we do to start bringing bands we dig together in a live setting for all to enjoy. This first installment should be a great evening of quality music at an unbeatable price – free!
**UPDATE: The bands and I have decided to turn this into a Sandy Benefit. While the event will continue to be free and not have a cover charge, we are going to collect money for Sandy relief efforts. Your donations at the show will go to Red Cross. We suggest giving $5, but people are welcome to give as much or as little as they like. For any donations of $10 or more, you will get your very own copy of our sweet gig poster!**
Muchmore's is a venue in Williamsburg at 2 Havemeyer. It opens for business at 7:00 each night and music should start at 8:00. It's a cool new DIY space that hosts all ages shows. If you haven't been, this is a great time to check it out.
Palomino is a rock and roll trio I profiled earlier this spring after featuring their song "Ghost Story" in my first NYC music podcast. They have a great, self-titled EP out and put on a rocking live show. Here's one of my favorite songs of theirs, "Far and Away."
Oh! My Blackbird is four piece band that plays a catchy mixture of folk, classical, and indie. They were part of the recently released second NYC music podcast with their track "Faking," and profiled a few weeks ago. Their album Dare Me is quite fantastic. Here's one of my favorite songs of theirs, "Stick Song."
**UPDATE David Pollack will start the evening with a solo set. Here's a song of his I really like called, "Why Not Now?"
You can RSVP to the event on Facebook and get more info here. We will be adding another band hopefully, so be sure to check back for more info. I hope to see you there, but for those that can't make it, we should have a fantastic photographer capturing the event and we'll share them here post-show.
Also, props to the designer of our incredible gig poster, James Rudy.
