But it looked very interesting - though I admit to not being a mega fan of theirs - they are great but u know me - i'm a lover not a fighter lol Will definitely check out the Death By Audio doco if I get a chance too!! Ha, ha.
I SEE what you did there, William. Well, I "alvvays" try to give an "informative blog experience" - so I'm glad I could accommodate you. They basically invented the Punk sound. Dives - Alvvays - Soundcheck in Brooklyn 2016 all these bands that came after them - frequently point to The Ramones as a major reason they even started to play.
It would definitely be worth your time to catch the documentary film Goodnight Brooklyn: The Story Of Death By Audio - once it goes into wider distribution. See it if you can! It travels to It travels to thegrammymuseum in LA Sept.
So good!! Michael Laughlin wrote: Good work on the Ramones exhibit, Dave. I can totally understand why it was held in Queens, but I still wish it was in Manhattan, which is familiar territory and much easier to navigate. Nice to see The Queens Museum acknowledging this feature. For your sake it would have been better if it was in Manhattan, Michael. Queens was actually better for me, though. Either way - the final days of that exhibit are in that historical 2 World's Fairs!
Then it takes a month and a half off before The Grammy Museum version begins, running from September 16 through March of We accept you. One of us! The Bandshell was added to the Park in to serve as a site for live outdoor entertainment. The Bandshell, as much of the Park and many Northeast citiessuffered through the late sixties and seventies as budget cuts and the broader effects of urban neglect took its toll. Make sure you read their tour rider!
Ah yes. Of course he would be contributing things from Behind The Smile - Roger Glover and Guests / Wizards Convention - The Butterfly Ball And Wizards C horror collection just one of the many shared interests the two pioneering guitarists Tallahassee Lassie - Freddy Cannon - Tallahassee Lassie / Abigail Beecher to Linda's annual Johnny tribute event.
The Queens Exhibit has now come to conclusion, but everyone on the west coast can get excited for that long run coming there next month and going into ! The first order of business are all the kudos that need to be doled out: To Croms, for another exquisite archive of what will undoubtedly serve us well for future reminiscing.
I believe this may be the first time that I ever noticed that ALL of the pictures are displayed in miniature at the bottom of the screen when one dives into one with a double click. Or perhaps I've forgotten that I once knew this. But what a difference a click makes. So much larger, so much more detail.
Oh, but I do recommend sitting on a chair as opposed to a beach towel on the ground. Enough said there. And how about those friendly Village Voice reps handing out the free sunglasses as you wait in line to enter the venue? And the food vendor known as Farm On Adderley, with their delicious lamb and kale dishes.
I liked the opening act, Big Thief. She had a quirky voice and there was something refreshing in the way she interacted with her band.
The following two bands were fine, but I was really just soaking up the atmosphere. It was definitely a good night. Moving back to my discovery of the thumbnails. I noticed a change from the Bandshell performances to a museum exhibit. And to think of all the times I've driven past on my way to the city. I see a presidential seal No, not quite. I've never seen the motto "Hey Ho Let's Go" on a coin or dollar bill before. In one of the exhibit photos, there is a life-size replica of Dave Cromwell, the famous music writer.
Go figure. In another one, there's a report card. What could that be about? Wait, hang on readers, Dave is on the phone. Spooky this, Spooky that, yadda, yadda, yadda, and now back to this comment. Come to think of it, how many "D"s are there in yadda, one or two?
The Ramones. I once saw a Ramones cover band do three sets in one night. I must have been stupefied. Why didn't I leave after the first set? It was like musical self-flagellation. But hey, I'm sure there's folks out there that can describe the nuances that make each song different from the next. I have other mountains to climb. Still, it's very cool to know that there is a museum in Queens in that park and that there will be Dives - Alvvays - Soundcheck in Brooklyn 2016 Grammy exhibit coming soon.
But more important was that there was an interesting looking map or two involving an exhibit of the World's Fairs'. The IBEW or International Brotherhood Of Electrical Workers were the folks who were chosen to do the electrical part of the building of the pavilions during the fair in the s. It is one of the most recurring stories that my father tells, of being the foreman on the construction of the Swedish Pavilion.
He has since been looking for photos of that structure, which, like many of the others, was torn down subsequent to the fair. Only a few of them remain, and they have been forever seen by passers-by on the Long Island Expressway ever since.
We finally saw a black and white photo of the Swedish Pavilion at I. It was fun to try to find it, though, from the link Dave provided in his Innocence - Tarja* - The Shadow Self to a website all about those fairs. So this was kind of interesting for me.
And finally, another trip down memory lane revisited some early Cromwell and Pressley Abbott Dives - Alvvays - Soundcheck in Brooklyn 2016 camera work as Dave interviewed one of his musical heroes and venue originators, a very interesting fella, Oliver Ackermann of the band A Place To Bury Strangers and venue Death By Audio.
I'm watching it back and thinking "what is that noise? And Dives - Alvvays - Soundcheck in Brooklyn 2016 that mysterious note, this comment has reached its end. There are simply not enough hours in the day and your life to sift through it all. But I suppose growing up on Long Island and pursuing your adventures in other directions School upstate, trucking down south could result in this. However, you accurately note that the remaining structures are seen by passers-by on the Long Island Expressway every time we drive by.
Without a doubt Alvvays hit that sweet spot between the best of 90's nostalgic alterna-rock re-imagined and cutie pie front person. There are many who would say that's 'right in my wheelhouse. Too bad the members didn't get to experience the full effect of that in their lifetimes.
They all died too soon. Extended family members are left to tend those gardens going forward. Again, it would seem. DaveCromwell I loved it when it was in New York over the summer! Post a Comment. Since Johnny's death, Linda has continue to promote his and the Ramones' legacy. Check out his song " Love When Its Stong - Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes - Love Is A Sacrifice " as a prime example of this.
