Lucid Culture – New York Music Daily’s predecessor blog, where all classical, jazz and avant garde coverage continues to be archived
Mark Crispin Miller
The brilliant author, media scholar and social critic publishes the best news feed on the web, News From Underground. Absolutely essential and inspiring reading in these perilous times.
The Highwire – the best weekly news show on the web. Heavy on the science, but accessible to the average viewer. Host Del Bigtree is charismatic, hilarious and has been one of the most astute observers on the lockdown and lethal injection campaigns from day one.
Tessa Lena – poet, historian, philosopher, visionary. She has a brilliant news blog, was one of the first to recognize the dangers of the lockdown, and also does a more-of-less monthly podcast, Make Language Great Again. Her tenacity and fearlessness will inspire you.
Adrienne Elise – light worker, professional demystifier, pro-freedom activist and empath. Her guided meditations and astrology videos are politically spot-on and incredibly inspiring, especially if you’re depressed.
The Tom Woods Show
Erudite, thoughtful, incredibly insightful news and commentary. Even if you don’t agree with everything this pro-freedom activist says, he always does his homework and will challenge you to reexamine your position. He’s also co-creator of the hilarious COVID Charts Quiz, which uses CDC data to challenge you to find the US states or counties that had lockdown restrictions and those that didn’t.
The best and most comprehensive pro-freedom legislation site around. Tons of model bills for ending lockdown restrictions, fighting lethal injection requirements and returning the world to normal, plus resources for businesses and citizens. Run by author and pro-freedom activist Naomi Wolf, author of The End of America.
Peggy Hall’s The Healthy American
A vast treasure trove of resources to help businesses and individuals get back to normal and battle the lockdown, from this warmhearted, ferocious, tirelessly optimistic leader of the California pro-freedom movement
No Jab For Me
One of the most succinct pro-freedom sites. Many links to scientific research which debunks the rationale behind the lockdown and exposes the many ways the ongoing lethal injection campaigns have been engineered as weapons of mass destruction
The Event 201 video
Although Event 201 was not the first rehearsal for the lockdown, this private strategy session in New York in October of 2019 was the one where the corporate media’s campaign of fear porn and pro-lockdown, pro-needle of death propaganda was formulated. A must-see, you should watch before youtube takes it down. It’s uncannily prophetic

what’s the chance of a reply?
I am searching for daytime weekday or early LIVE real music
indoors in AUGUST in NYC
suggestions of where to search are welcomed
idea would be a little club like “my” local club in Tallahassee FL
The Bradfordville Blues Club
and if you are ever in town (that being Tallahassee FL) hope you will come out
If you like oldtime acoustic country blues, the Jalopy is your place. http://www.jalopy.biz
It’s actually a lot easier to get to than you might think – take the F train to Carroll St.
Will Scott, who’s probably the best and most eclectic electric blues guitarist in town, is at 68 Jay St Bar (just downhill from the York St. F train stop) at 10 on 8/11. Henry Butler, the New Orleans pianist opens for Steven Bernstein’s jazz orchestra at the Jazz Standard on the 20th through the 28th. 8/22 at midnight the rather creepy, harmonica-driven Stringbean & the Stalkers are at the Ear Inn. The raucous oldtimey Jessy Carolina & the Hot Mess are at Radegast Hall at 9 on 8/23; powerhouse electric player Bobby Radcliff is at Freddy’s on the 30th at 8.
Oldschool Chicago style blues guitarist Irving Louis Lattin has a lot of shows coming up. He’s at Terra Blues at 7 PM on 8/9, 8/12, 8/28 and 8/31 and at Lucille’s on Aug 10 and 24 at 8.
There are 3 fulltime blues bars in NYC. Terra Blues on Bleecker St., who have a revolving cast of local acts; Lucille’s, adjacent to B.B. King’s on 42nd St., which usually has a lot of annoying Clapton wannabes; and Paris Blues Bar on Adam Clayton Powell Blvd. and 121st St. in Harlem which doesn’t have a website but has a lot of surprisingly good, oldschool local acts. Links to the first two are at this blog’s sister site Lucid Culture.
I just read the excellent ‘Working Hypothesis …’, posted by Sage Hana and attributed to nydailymusic. Where can I find this illuminating piece on the nydailymusic website?
