************************************************
NEXT SHOW will be published on or about April 11 and will be available for
about 4 months beyond. Owing to schedule demands, I usually aim for noon
Wednesdays or as soon as possible thereafter.
You will hear music in several segments of top indie/DIY/underground
songwriters and bands.
RCB Novus Ordo will also air separately. On this show I spin one song from
as many as 8 songs in one sitting and give you background info of each
artist.

*********************************************************************************
No new media for you this week. I’m planning to attend these shows here in Philly:
A Little Affair play at JR’s Bar here in South Philly on 4/13. I’ve heard a few interesting things about this dive. There’s barely a website presence; there is a macabre collection of decor strewn about; stage-diving is known to happen frequently. Am I scaring you yet? Good. www.alittleaffairmusic.com
Sylvia Platypus performs on a bill with Study Electrictiy at The Grape Room on 4/19. I’ve seen the latter band just once; great example of modern Philly rock. Sylvia Platypus I’ve not yet seen. They are billed as “psycho-Celtic’ rock. I met their lead singer Janet Bressler once at a Song Dogs & The Nightjar show; we already were connected on that Facebook thing. www.sylviaplatypus.com
Local Americana/country-rockers band Gavilan share members of the band Richie Allen & The Midvale 9, and are releasing a new CD at The Grape Room on 4/21. I have their CD in advance, and will certainly spin this for you when it’s time for me to debut itt. http://www.reverbnation.com/headlesscowboymusic
*************************************************
TWITTER FIVE TO FOLLOW: These are the last 5 folks that I’m following who
follow back: @Nydialfb @FaceTheKing @katekilbane @TheWayHomeMusic @Geraldbrusaschi
*****************************************************
COVERAGE:
I do audio interviews, photos, video, and audio of live events. You can see
and hear evidence across my Facebook and YouTube channels, plus the field
recording FeedPlayer.Time, location and expense will be taken into account
before taking on a job.
********************************************************************
RCB REVIEW: The annotated version of my shows.
On RCB Novus Ordo: 2 bands local to Philly, Johnny Action Figure, and The Tressels, debut on this edition. Red Abbey, formerly of Hoboken NJ, now in Las Vegas, have recently released their first full album. full of the same fire and brimstone they produce on stage.

RCB proper: Segment 1 was anchored by Shane Cooley. He is touring with Adam Web across the MidAtlantic states .Shane and others in the segment are performing at this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival (Wes Tucker, Flo Anito, Jamie Alimorad). Segment 2 started with pairs of duos (Sirsy, Schwervon!, The StereoFidelics; note the string quartet added to Sirsy’s Sorry Me”). Segment 3 featured tales of death, despair and hopefulness. Marybeth D’Amico’s tune “Beneath The Rubble” seems to anchor all these songs. Segment 4 includes new music from Daniel Levi Goans, a recently released song by Kate Klim, and both a Mark Erelli cover and original. Also completed the first full airing of the unearthed music from 1997-2002 by Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer.
