Clogs, Bang On a Can, Deerhoof, Shara Worden, Karla Kihlstedt among the acts on adventurous music series’s killer lineup of shows coming up in January and February
Superstorm Sandy did a real number on the New Amsterdam Records headquarters in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a month ago. The good folks at the nonprofit record company/concert presenting organization are still struggling to recover from the devastation. (Please help them with a donation if you haven’t already — or even if you have. Just click here.)
Despite the devastation, they folks at NewAm have forged ahead with plans for a killer lineup for the next installment of their groundbreaking concert series at Merkin Concert Hall in Manhattan. It’s something we here at Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone? always look forward to.
The 2013 edition, which kicks off in late January, offers one of the strongest lineups ever. It’s hard to know where to start.
My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus? Check.
Clogs with NewAm founder Sarah Kirkland Snider? Check.
Deerhoof and Dal Niente with Marcos Balter? Check.
Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, Daniel Wohl and Transit (an adventurous ensemble that my pal Andie Springer is involved in)? Yep.
The Bang on a Can People’s Commissioning Fund Concert? Yes, indeed.
I could go on. But you get the idea. Check out the full schedule. And buy tickets. Now. You won’t want to miss any of these shows.
For schedule, tickets and more info, click here. Single tickets are just $25, while a festival pass is a mere $150 — and worth every penny.
Trust me on this one.
