manifesto: to make your getting together with each other something different, someway more. not just music but all about the music; making you dance, making you stay out later. going for the magic of being right there in what’s happening, with no hype, nothing elitist, everyone invited. plus giving back and being involved in making creativity happen.

I’m a one man operation, with a million amazing people helping out, however many nights a week. I’m currently drafting an up-to-date thanks list, but for now, let me just say thanks to all the great old friends who have helped make all these shows happen over the years. You all have made the experience of these shows a more personal experience, and built what could just be a scene into a vibrant family. THANKS!

I’m always looking for more bands & acts & spectacles & curiosities to charge people money to see. if you have such a thing, write me with details and maybe we’ll work together. millions will be made.

I have been laying low on the email / show booking front lately, apologies for not keeping in touch. Despite quiet on the New York shows side of things, much is hectic/frenetic here in the home office.

Here’s a sampling of some of what we have been up to, in no order:

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

MARKET HOTEL PROJECT - a project to reopen a long-shuttered, beloved concert space / art space

http://markethotel.org

Our renovation plan has been approved and construction has finally commenced! Opening date tbd. Over 3 years ago Market Hotel closed as an underground event space. A decision was made to fight to reopen this unique place and to relaunch with our legal ducks in order - but also to turn down commercial investors and instead make it work as a not-for-profit dedicated to the community (without using crowd funding). It has not been easy, nor glamorous, but after much= struggle the project finally found its necessary funding roughly two years ago, and we spent the last 24 months navigating a lease renewal and the permitting process to reopen with proper alcohol license, occupancy permit, permit for “assembly,” and other necessary paperwork. These things are not yet in hand, but our legal and financial pathway is finally in sight to begin construction to satisfy the requirements to get to those goals. Some may be surprised to hear that this project is alive - but rest assured: nearly every day we are working behind the scenes to make the reopening of Market Hotel a reality. This space will re-open not as some temple of “indie” whatever, but as a space dedicated to bringing the privileged concepts of all ages access and affordable tickets to many music genres. **ACTUALLY HAPPENING** seriously! Stay tuned.

Read this (older) article from the Brooklyn Rail for some background on the project:

http://brooklynrail.org/2010/06/music/the-market-hotel-shuts-down-grows-up

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

OTRAS OBRAS - an art gallery project in Tijuana, Mexico

http://otrasobras.mx

In the fall of 2012, LA-based artist/curator Michael Ray-Von and I opened Otras Obras, a new contemporary art space in Downtown Tijuana, less than one mile from the USA border. Otras Obras aims to present challenging work addressing questions of borders, class, currency, translation, and authority. Our inaugural exhibition featured a collaborative installation by Mexico City-artist Joaquín Segura & by New York-based artist Jesse Hlebo, and we have since mounted several installations. Dominican-born filmmaker Kelman Duran has recently taken over the role of curator-in-residence of Otras Obras for the fall 2013 / spring 2014 season.

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

TRANS-PECOS - a new all ages venue + art space on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border

Trans-Pecos is a new all ages music venue for “new music” (aka noise, avant composition, artistic rock, etc) - with a (licensed) bar for the grown-ups, as well as on-site creative office space and artists’ studio space, i located in the former Silent Barn space on Wyckoff Ave. The space will eventually feature a cafe space open during the day, and will double as a neighborhood bar on nights without shows, plus a gallery, and a separate gallery and show space in the basement to open at a later date.

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

SHOWPAPER - a biweekly print newspaper listing all ages music shows in the NYC area, and a full-color art print series

http://showpaper.info

Over 165 issues and well into our 6th year of publication! I founded SHOWPAPER with a dedicated group of volunteers. We envisioned a newspaper with several concepts in mind: as an homage to the photocopied punk show listings papers of the pre-internet days; as an alternative to the corporatization and impersonalization of underground scenes that has come with the ubiquitous use of the internet; -and- as a way to expose savvy young people to visual art / take a stab at introducing some underground energy to the art world. I’m proud that we’ve survived for so many years, and with unique projects along the way like the Showpaper 42nd Street Gallery, summertime free concerts in McCarren Park, our newsbox projects, and more. SHOWPAPER has recently gained a new crop of volunteer management and is now co-helmed by Stuart Solomon (of Emet) and Zack Wheeler. Always looking for volunteers!

STANHOPE CELLAR STUDIOS - an affordable rehearsal space facility in Bushwick, Brooklyn

email stanhopespot@gmail.com or call 347.850.3256 for availability

We offer cheap, $495 dollar private music rehearsal rooms in a modern, dry, safe facility with an elevator and heating/cooling/ventilation and onsite 24-hour security. The concept is to provide the cheapest private music rehearsal rooms in Brooklyn, in a month-to-month lease-free arrangement, where folks can practice in relative comfort, security, and peace. It’s been popular and is fully occupied.

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

MYRTLE LIGHT STUDIOS - a brand-new facility of multi-use creative art
studios & office spaces in Bushwick, Brooklyn

http://fb.com/myrtlelighthttp://twitter.com/myrtlelight

email myrtlelight@gmail.com or call 845.554.0694 for availability

MYRTLE LIGHT STUDIOS is a brand-new facility of multi-use creative art studios and office spaces. Perfect for artists, designers, and start-up businesses looking for professional, private, project space for a reasonable price. Rooms start at $650 p/ month, and are fully private (you don’t have to share with anyone). All rooms feature huge openable windows with lots of light + free WiFi + ample electrical + 24/7 access + dedicated passenger elevator + on-site security + all utilities included. Strictly workspaces, sorry, so no residential use.

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

The above are some of the major ongoing projects I’ve got going on. I’m excited to share them with you, by way of explaining why there are fewer shows I’m directly involved in. There are also a few more commercial, less creative projects that go on in the background, and above all else I am the proud father of an amazing baby boy. Life is good!

FYI - I’ve been booking shows for a long time, but so do lots of other people, so if you want to book a show & can’t get a response out of me, you should try contacting these other great NYC independent & ALL AGES showfolk below. I recommend perusing their links and their calendars to see if they’re the right fit for you, or just to see what’s going on (for the record, blindly mass emailing all of these people will not make you a lot of friends, and probably will cause people to NOT want to book you, word to the wise)
