A Night for Nicholas Hill @Casita Del Polaris

 

Nicholas Hill (or Hickory to some) suffered a stroke in the beginning of April and has been traveling the long road to recovery since. His family plans to provide for him the best in rehabilitation services. Please support the effort to help Nick on his journey by coming to A Night for Nicholas Hill.

 “I have done his radio show a bunch of times. He’s a real fun guy to be interviewed by because he knows a shit ton about music. He’s the kind of guy that really keeps music alive. Musicians need people like Nick – he makes the local musicians feel like they are doing something worthwhile.”

 – Johnny Dowd   / 14850.com 

The evening will feature numerous Ithaca area singer songwriters playing original music and celebrating Nick. Performers will include Jennie Lowe, Mary Lorson, Johnny Dowd, Richie Stearns, Anna Coogan, Jen Cork, Angie Beeler, Bert Scholl, Pierce Walsh, Jai and Jonathan Meyerhoff, Polly Wood, Janet Batch, and others. This is the opportunity for all who love Nick to come together and support a truly special member of our community. $10 suggested donation.

Live at Casita del Polaris Sept 1 9pm

Live at Casita del Polaris (and Indie on Demand)

That’s Sat. 7/30, NOT Friday like Facebook is so lying about…

On another note, here’s a message from Johnny’s IndieGoGo campaign:

July 4, 2016:  We were getting requests for perks after the campaign closed, so we put the campaign into “In Demand” which makes perks available again.

Funds raised over goal will go to costs connected to Johnny’s new record and his October tour to promote it. Thanks again, everyone!

 

(Our chance to get another Zolar tee so the JDF crew can appear at all future Halloween parties dressed as a moving company.)

To start with, if you loved A Drunkards Masterpiece, you gotta claim this perk:

CD_Drunkardards paining

“This is a gorgeous watercolor by artist Kurt Herrmann which we reproduced on the cover of Johnny’s 2008 CD, “A Drunkard’s Masterpiece.” Painting is 6¾ x 7¾ inches (12¾ x 14¼ inches, including mat and wood frame). Matted and framed to archival standards.”

Okay, fine, we get it – what you REALLY want is a song written about you by Johnny:

The Studio,Jif,Execute2016

“Become immortalized in song. Johnny will write a song about you and record it. He’ll send it to you on CD-R, along with the handwritten lyrics. Just give him a few details about your life. Or, if you prefer, the song can be about someone or something else. Who knows, maybe it will be on Johnny’s next record? You can keep the recording to yourself or share with the world, as long as you don’t charge anyone for it. (Johnny will retain songwriting rights.)”

 

.This mother of all perks won’t run out, though. We know he can do it, no matter how many requests he gets, because his song book already tops 300. Fact!

 

Hell, be the crazy mofo that got both! But Do It NOW!

 

(PS Never hesitate-here’s the perk you missed:
“Hello everyone. I added a new perk today—my Electro Harmonix DRM-16. It’s almost like a band member. I used it on just about every record I’ve made. You can hear it in this video for “Betty”:

Live at the Lincoln Center David Rubenstein Atrium

 

Banner_Lincoln Center,20160310

Johnny Dowd and his band return to New York City after a 10-year hiatus during which Dowd built a large and passionate following in Europe, and released five albums of his unique, alternative blues filtered through country, rock, R&B, experimental, and electronic lenses. The night also spotlights a performance by Bent Knee, a genre-defying, art-rock collective from Boston. The Independent Music Award program continues its 15-year commitment to raising the profile of extraordinary indie artists, labels and their releases.

– Lincoln Center event

– IMA event

Noisy alt-country outsider Johnny Dowd will be performing two hometown shows in Ithaca this month. He returns to New York for a free show @ David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center on March 10 as part of the Independent Music Awards program. Also on the bill: indie art rock band Bent Knee.

Dear friends….here’s the latest in the world of Johnny Dowd:

He has a new band member: the talented Anna Coogan (shown above with Johnny). She’ll be performing with Johnny and Mike Edmondson at the Lincoln Center show on March 10 and will also be on the European tour in October.

If you’re in the New York City area, do try to catch the Lincoln Center show—Johnny doesn’t get to New York very often. It’s in the David Rubenstein Atrium and free. It’s one of the Independent Music Awards’ (IMA) two shows a year at the Atrium. Thanks again to Martin Folkman at IMA for inviting Johnny to do this. Click here for more information about the show.

Johnny also wanted me to tell you he is clean-shaven now (no more beard or mustache).

Live Ithaca Underground Show at Cayuga Lodge

We’re honored to announced the first appearance of Johnny Dowd on an Ithaca Underground event! As many of you are aware, Johnny has been bringing experimentation, black humor, & the absurd, with 20+ studio recordings, live albums, & EPs.

Jealousy Mountain Duo have cancelled their 45-day, US/Japan tour due to injury and will return to the road/skies in the fall. Please welcome Johnny as ample recompense while we wish Jorg a speedy recovery.

POWERDOVE  Since its inception in 2007, the brainchild of Annie Lewandowski has grown from a band of one to one band: of color in a spectrum, of frequency between towers, of bodies reaching toward some abiding vision of nature.

JITTERS  Tampa-bred instrumental math-prog duo that plays fast and futuristic melodies, with busy drums and sonic loopage scattered throughout their songs. Their sound is taut and nervous, full of abrupt, jagged instrumental twists and turns.

BRIAN! wields dynamic and complex compositions that pull influence from the Rock In Opposition movement, classical, jazz, prog, noise, and math-rock, all performed with a loud rock live intensity.
