Recommendations for Thursday, March 9, 2006
Ladd - The Kitchen $8/$10
If I had to pick only one show tonight, it'd be a great big
toss-up but I'd have to go with Mike Ladd at the Kitchen,
not only because he's one of the most talented and creative
emcees out there with a consistantly fresh take on music,
but also because Ladd, once a regular fixture in the local
scene, lives in Paris and doesn't make it this way frequently
enough. If you want to know more about why I love this man's
music so much, go
here for my review of his latest, Father
on the Wall, The Boggs, Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Illinois
- Mercury Lounge $10: Blood on the Wall and The Boggs
are two NYNT favorites that you find recommended here frequently.
Blood on the Wall is guaranteed to play their catchy well-crafted
songs with utter abandon and The Boggs, are now electrified
and will surprise old fans with their newfound danceable artful
sound and all-star lineup (David Lloyd from Cause For Applause,
Sam Jayne from Love As Laughter, Matt Scultz from Enon, and
Karen Sharky from Boy$/ A-OK USA).
Rogers Sisters, Celebration - Northsix $10/$12: The
Rogers Sisters are totally polishing their act. But the real
cause for celebration is their labelmates, Celebration, who,
for those not in the know, feature Katrina Ford and Sean Antanaitis
from Lovelife. They've widened their scope since their last
band and made a refreshing self-titled debut recoded here
in Brooklyn by my hero Chris Codey.
Genghis Tron, USAISAMONSTER, Hot Cross- curated by Michelle
Panache - Tommy’s Tavern: You can't really
beat the artful pandemonium of upstate's mighty Genghis Tron
and Load's USAISAMONSTER has been consistently peeling paint
for some time (despite a light track on their latest, Wohaw.
Langford - Galapagos free: With his own label, The
Mekons, Waco Brothers, and a million other projects, this
towering figure in a number of underground music threads is
always more than worthwhile.
