Q: What the hell happened to you guys?
A: Three computer meltdowns in five years, no biggie. Without your support and the help of an awesome global community, this blog would be history. Your generosity has been humbling and is deeply appreciated. Here’s hoping that great generosity will not be needed in the months and years to come and that the current rig will hold strong!
Q: How do we get in touch with you?
A: Send an email to lucidculture [at] gmail [dot] com. That’s the general address for this blog and its older sister jazz/classical music blog Lucid Culture.
Q: On the live music calendar, how come you listed the headline act and not the openers? (There’s a variant on this question that pops up every so often: how come you listed the opening acts and not the headliner?)
A: Several possible answers. A) there were opening acts? B) The only acts that get listed here are the ones worth seeing. The live music calendar isn’t a listing of every band playing every venue: it’s a carefully selected list. Unfortunately, most New York venues are not booked with any concern about how much fun the audience will have, so it’s rare that there’s more than a single good band on any given night at a particular club.
Q: I’m a subscriber. How come the post I get in my email box every day is sometimes different from the one I see when I visit the site?
A: Thank you for subscribing. Sometimes edits need to be made: date/time changes for shows…umm….typographical errors…musician credits that weren’t included with the promo info for a particular album or for a concert. That sort of thing. For the latest, most up-to-date info (especially for the live music calendar, which is updated every day), your best bet is to bookmark the site and just hit it whenever you feel like catching up on what you missed.
Q: What’s your vendetta with Facebook?
A: Hmmm…so you were shocked by the Cambridge Analytics scandal? What alternate universe are you living in? Wake up and smell the coffee, people. If the government required you to sign over all your personal info including 24/7 GPS location along with photos of family, children, friends and friends’ children, plus your resume, your workplace, your political affiliation, your taste in movies, tv, music and books, the sports teams you root for, all electronic communication with all your friends AND then tracked with you with face recognition technology too, there would be a FUCKING REVOLUTION. But because it’s Facebook that’s doing it and not the government, that makes it somehow ok?
And in case you were wondering, Facebook owns Instagram.
Any idea if The Dixons are still active?
They don’t play out a lot anymore, but they still do the occasional show at the Jalopy or Union Pool http://www.myspace.com/thedixonshonkytonk
Hi I was wondering if I could post my event with you? Thanks J.K.
sure, go for it
Please consider for the calendar. thank you!

Musaner’s evocative sound derives from the combination of jazz orchestration, musical storytelling and the use of Armenian folk music and instuments.
During the past few years, Musaner has played extensively in the Boston area to sell-out audiences, and has performed in Milano, Italy and Zurich, Switzerland presenting their colorful, exciting and entertaining music.
The Boston Phoenix has described musaner as “a refreshing, intoxicating brew … played by some of the best of the Boston scеnе”.
Musaner’s appearance at Drom will be the group’s debut performance in New York City as they celebrate their 5 year anniversary and the release of their second album in November, 2012.
I\’ll be returning to New York at ZirZamin (90 W. Houston St.) 7-7:45PM WED FEB 27. I\’m from Toronto.
Check out some music compiled from my 8 albums. \’Do What You Love\’ was just released. https://soundcloud.com/aporia-records/sets/lily-frost-greatest-hits
Sorry for being over 40 and so lame.
I just became hip to your review of my band The Philistines debut album The Backbone of Night a couple years back. Omg, that was one of the funnest reviews of us I’ve read. Thanks so much for it and for digging into it. We are still a band and I know it’s been a long time but we are working on album #2 now. Our bass player Michelle left a couple years back to pursue other music endeavors but our current bass player Barry Kidd is the replacement of my dreams with his unbelievable pocket and weight. We of course have to break for now due to The “Q” order but are eager to have our next album Dysnomia out hopefully by this Fall. Hopefully touring will still be available in the future and we can come to NYC to get in your face the way we love to! Thanks again, I’m kinda walking lighter today on your words.
