Night Spins Pick Up Dates To Support Rainbow Kitten Surprise on Spring 2019 Tour

#TheMusicMatters has been #radiosilent way too long. However today, we got news of something so incredible we could not keep quiet any longer. This blogger has made no secret of their love for Rainbow Kitten Surprise. Not only are they one of the fastest rising indie bands on the scene right now but, we’ve also enjoyed how intensely they curate their support groups. This particular announcement hit close to home as #RKS chose Night Spins to support them on nine dates of the upcoming #Spring2019 tour. These will include May 24th at White Eagle Hall as well as the Wilmington,Asheville, and Raleigh dates where RKS will be raising #relieffunds for victims of #hurricaneflorence. We’ve been following #NightSpins since late 2017 and they’ve been featured prominently in previous blogs on this page. To them we offer hearty congrats and to RKS we offer #kudos on picking such a fine group to support them on their Spring adventures

Stoplight Observations 2young NEW SINGLE!

Live From Dinner Presents SCR 9-22-2018


#LivefromDinner is a double curation entity. What they do is curate a music event, then curate a tasting menu based on the band’s collective palates. For this evening Chef Tevaughn White designed the menu.

As you know this blogger has been a #superfan of #SCRtheband for some time now. We feel they are #primedandready with the songs and stage presence for #biggerandbetterthings. Last night’s second installment of Live From Dinner certainly was no exception is proving that.

The evening began with the flow of rapper #Marcaux. We couldn’t find any social media on him but, keep a look out. The man has a story to tell, with the skills to deliver.

Next up our inspiration for the evening’s menu SCR (You may remember them as #SirCadianRhythm). They had never performed as an acoustic act before, but you certainly couldn’t tell from their performance. Jack (vocals),Alex (guitar),Matt(Trombone,Keys,Melodica), Micah(Drums,Beard) and Richie (Bass) delighted a #packedhouse with regular tunes from their repertoire as well as hints of new material from their upcoming album to be recorded this Fall. Also dropped was the news that they will be performing on The Rock Boat, a floating #musicfestival in Feb 2019.

Please #follow Live From Dinner, SCR on social media. Find Marcaux and Chef Tevaughn to advise us of links. #sharing and #commentsappreciated

Pamnation Party Stage
Pleasantville Music Festival 2018
July 14th, 2018

This is the time of the year The Music Matters loves the most. For this blogger, #festivalseason is our #holidayseason. None more prominent or enjoyable than the #PleasanvilleMusicFestival which has a stage dedicated to the #musiccurations of promoter #Pamnation.

The festivities begin with the female fronted, hard rocking sounds of #battleofthebands winners Gilbert – the band. The day moves forward to Alternative Rockers Friends At The Falls who are from Mahopac. Next up will be Loose Buttons. Veterans of the NYC scene for years, we caught them this past March at ALPHAVILLE. and were impressed by their energy and songwriting.

The day heats up as Late Night Episode hits the stage. This blogger, having seen them twice this past year (Garcia’s and The Capitol Theatre) looks forward to seeing these rockers from Scarsdale and the showmanship/tunesmith abilities they bring. Following them will be a band that mixes R&B,Hip Hop and Rock – Juice. We were lucky enough to catch them at #TheCapitolTheater (The same show with #LateNighEpisode as they supported last year’s #PamnationPartyStage headliners Ripe).

Wrapping up the festivities we are anxious to see Funk ‘n Hop masters Harsh Armadillo. Noon to Nine come see the latest in #NewMusicFinds. Be sure to comment,share and of course follow all these bands as well as #Pamnation and #PleasantvileMusicFestival2018 on #socialmedia. Get tix now to be there 7-14!

Night Spins – Album Review – Release date June 8th 2018

Night Spins
Album Review
Release date June 8th 2018

This blogger has been anxiously awaiting the release of the debut album from the #NightSpins for some time now. Recommended to us by music curator/promoter Pamnation, we had a chance to catch them live at Rockwood Music Hall on November 17, 2017. Known then by their former moniker #TheBoobies they drove the #crowdedhouse into a frenzy supported by boisterous bubble blowing fans (say that 3X fast).

Anticipating the release of their first full length disc, we could not wait any longer and began streaming as soon as it was available yesterday morning on Spotify. The band rocks us and rolls us through ten tunes with their unique mix of old school garage with modern day indie pop sounds. Start with Tell Me I’m Wrong and Hard To See,keep on going until you hear Beach Party and Breakfast For Three. #Allkillernofiller here.

When can I see them again live? Oh wait, how about tonight June 9th, 2018 at The Bowery Electric !!! Yes, The Music Matters will be there !!! #seeyouthere
