How Not to Get Press Here

When officially sanctioned concerts ground to a halt outside of Sweden, New York Music Daily was temporarily repurposed as a portal to great recordings. As we return from lockdown hell, there will be more previews of upcoming shows and hopefully concert coverage here along with a mix of older material and brand-new streaming audio to help keep your spirits up so we can fight to get back the world the lockdowners stole from us.

If you’re one of the brave ones putting out new music at this perilous time and you’ve read this far, you are welcome to look around here to see if you might want to send it along. Music that isn’t easily categorized is especially welcome; the more pro-freedom content, lyrically or otherwise, the better. We really need to unite right now!

If you think what you do is a good fit, please send A) a link to streaming audio (no FB or IG pages, please – Bandcamp, Soundcloud, youtube, and/or your own website would be ideal) and B) a link to download the mp3s to lucidculture [at] gmail [dot] com.

If you’re doing a live streaming event that’s accessible to everyone, i.e. at your own webpage, Zoom, youtube (not FB or IG), feel free to send a link: the more advance notice, the better.

If you’re playing a show in one of the five boroughs of New York or the honorary NYC boroughs of Hoboken and Jersey City, NJ, please feel free to send listings for the current live music calendar. Time, date, artists on the bill, brief descriptions of what styles they play, cover charge if any and web links to streaming audio would be very useful. Please no FB or IG links. All questions/submissions to lucidculture [at] gmail [dot] com.

Please NO cashless concerts, or shows where cash customers get screwed because they have to pay extra. If you want only white people at your show, shame on you: New York Music Daily represents everybody in this city. Remember, #cashless=apartheid.
