Coming to Ludlow Garage (not a time warp)
« on: June 25, 2015, 10:05:27 PM »

September 18, 2015:  Freedy Johnston

When they announced the place was reopening months and months ago, I thought "yeah, right" and promptly forgot about it.  But this gig was listed on www.pollstar.com and is also listed on Johnston's website.  So it's apparently happening.  The location will be quite appealing to a certain forum member...

Ha, saw Freedy back in '94 (or somewhere around then) when he opened up for Sheryl Crow at the Taft. I won the tickets from WOXY!

Did he play Fun Ride?  I'm guessing not...

Living in Clifton I can walk there in under ten minutes. When they said national, regional and local bands I assumed it would end up being the same five locals in a week, but now I have hope. I'd go to this but it's the same night as Death Cab For Cutie.

I can't recall but I am absolutely sure that he played Bad Reputation!  ;D

Advance tickets for Ludlow Garage shows are available at XXXXXXXX.*  Well, at least for national level touring acts.  In addition to Freedy Johnston in September, Matisyahu is coming on October 30.  Not familiar with that artist's music but others might be.

*on edit:  I got the website wrong.  It is actually www.tunestub.com

Was hot for a while some 8-9 years ago, when he toured as an Orthodox-Jewish guy playing all-out reggae, an obvious combination (?). His debut EP (forgot the title) was REALLY good.

Then a few years ago, he dropped the Orthodox-Jewish appearance, also cut his hair, and became unrecognizable. Of course, by then, his (new) music wasn't any good anymore.

I saw him at Bogart's at some point in the early years.

DrJohn, what is the capacity of the reincarnated Ludlow Garage?

The only thing I've seen re:  capacity was on an ad the ownership purportedly placed on another website advertising for a chef for the restaurant part of the place.  It said the downstairs concert portion of the place holds 300.  Don't know whether I would take that as gospel, though.

Update:  The venue for this gig has been changed to The Thompson House.  Same date, in the Parlour (Fidlar is in the main room).     I guess the new Ludlow Garage won't be ready by 9/18.  They had to postpone another show that was set for last night.  I have a possible conflict but I will still make the show if
I can.  Just wish it was at a different place...

In all fairness, the top prices for most of the shows they have scheduled are for the first one to three rows.  But even taking that into consideration, the prices seem inordinately high.

walked by it today as I was going to see a movie at the Esquire.

Saw posters for upcoming shows for Vanessa Carlton, Howie Day and Matisayhu.

For folkie fans, Livingston Taylor will be there on 10/31.  Tom Rush is booked for May 2016.  I might go to that one if the place is still open then--somehow I have my doubts.

March 5, 2016 - Rickie Lee Jones

OK, I'm not exactly a huge fan but I did like her first album back in the day. And the venue is slowly adding more shows for the coming months.  I still question the long term viability of a space with such a small capacity/number of seats, and I doubt many full rock bands will ever play there.   But they certainly have more upcoming concerts than the Thompson House, though that seems like faint praise.
