We are proud to announce our biggest event to date! On February 17, Dog Gone Blog will team up with Bowery Presents for a late show at New York City’s Mercury Lounge. The evening will feature performances from two of the finest Brooklyn acts on the scene today. Woodsman will kick off the night with an improvisational sound quest before Yellowbirds take the stage for their first NYC-area performance in several months. These two bands have been featured quite prominently on the pages of this site in the past year and we are extremely excited to present this stellar bill in one of New York’s best venues. Doors open at 1030PM. Tickets are $10. Head to Mercury Lounge’s official site for more info and ticketing details (tickets are on sale now). Listen to a track from each band below. We hope to see many of you at the show!
NYC’s Breakthru radio recently filmed a studio session with Sam Cohen and Josh Kaufman of Yellowbirds. In the intimate setting of the Serious Business studio, the duo spoke with radio host Travis Harrison before performing a stripped down version of “Beneath the Reach of Light.” This video sees Cohen move to acoustic with Kaufman commanding an array of noise vehicles behind him. Check out the video courtesy of Breakthru Radio below.
Yellowbirds, a DGB favorite, recently stopped by 5th Street Studios in Austin, TX for a video session. In this clip you’ll find guitarists Sam Cohen and Josh Kaufman performing the opening track off the Yellowbirds recent album, The Color. The duo takes on “Rest of My Life” with Cohen sporting a new custom-looking guitar and Kaufman on a flamenco style acoustic. Yellowbirds will make their next appearance at the NYC Freaks’ Rocks Off Boatcruise on May 15; May 27 at The Loft in BK; and June 9 at Cameo Gallery (w/ Sean Bones). Thanks to DGB reader Matthew H. for tipping us off to this great vid.
