Acoustic Girl Music at Patchogue Theatre
Hi all.

I'm playing at the Patchogue Theatre's "Live in the Lobby" series on Thursday Nov 1st.

The Patchogue Theatre is this awesome beautiful old theatre that has been restored and reclaimed by a not-for-profit arts organization... And Live in the Lobby features local acoustic acts every month. It's pretty cool... Here's a flier with details:

Can anyone recommend any Long Island-based bands that are more in the alternative/indie/post-punk/dreampop type vein? You know, maybe ones that sound more like Interpol or Arcade Fire as opposed to the more common emo/pop-punk stuff? Most bands I know like this that have LI roots (mine, or Aeroplane Pageant or Slowlands) seem to now be based in Brooklyn. Anyway, we've been offered shows out here but we need to find more bands to put on the bill...

Bell Hollow's debut full-length, Foxgloves, infuses modern musical currents with a painfully rich romance between shadowy post-punk and shoegaze; the contemplative, bittersweet sensuality of the songs entrances and ensnares with an oceanic pull... Foxgloves has its classic touchstones (The Cure, The Chameleons, Cocteau Twins, The Smiths), but the sonic, thematic, and lyrical content on the album showcases Bell Hollow's original artistry, positioning them at the forefront of the new wave of dream pop.
- Kristen Sollee (The Big Takeover)


Now available for pre-order (ships 10/8/07) on five03 Records.

Check out sample clips of "Seven Sisters" and "Eyes Like Planets" on the band's MySpace.

Bell Hollow and friends are doing our part to ensure that there's more to Long Island's music scene than just Billy Joel, hardcore relics, bad cover bands, and a thousand and one emo-punk groups. Sick of the emo boys? Then come see the men of Bell Hollow (one of 'em calls Huntington home) tomorrow night, playing their uniquely intense blend of post-punk, new wave, and shoegaze at the wonderful Mr. Beery's of Bethpage, where the brews are cold and the bands are hot.

We perform at 11pm, preceded by Travis Raab (of Great Neck) at 9pm, our pals His Mighty Robot (of Uniondale) at 10pm. The Cadavers (of Sea Cliff) close out the night at midnight.

Mr. Beery's is at 4019 Hempstead Turnpike (near Route 107) in Bethpage, LI.

Admission is $5.00.

Poster design by His Mighty Robot.

Four richly atmospheric songs that will take you places you've never been before.

Check out two of them right now on Bell Hollow’s MySpace (see below link): the cinematic title track "Sons of the Burgess Shale" and the pulsating nocturne "Bodies, Rest and Motion."

Available August 2006 on Five03 Records.

"Post-punk revival bands can leave me frustrated. They're a cliff notes version of a life-altering text. Bell Hollow is the next chapter in that text." - Basim Usmani

"Bell Hollow invokes all of the moody, ethereal elements of The Cure, Cocteau Twins and Radiohead." – The Big Takeover

"Sounds almost effortlessly like it's 1981 and The Comsat Angels are in town; the songs are brooding and burning with restrained passion." - Leonard's Lair

for anyone in the "new england" area
any volunteer drivers and carpoolers?

hey everybody,

this message might be off topic but it can help a lot of people, so i'm asking that it's kept on the journal. understandable if it needs to be edited out and all, but i urge you to give a quick read before making a decision.

i'm going to build homes with habitat for humanity in the new orleans area. there are groups of activists going down in june for 5-day blocks. (i was thinking about staying 5-15 days). if anyone is interested in going please let me know - the bigger the group, the lesser the expenses, the better job done. collaboration would be awesome, especially if someone has a car - gas would be much less expensive than a flight+rental/cabs. this is an independent volunteering/activism project available for anyone able to come help out, but time and space is limited so please get back to me asap if it sounds like something you'd be interested in. habitat for humanity asks for a $20/night donations, which aren't necessary but encouraged (I won't be paying the maximum .. poor college student). So anyway, if you want to come on the flight, or have a car, and want to come down with a group to do something progressive for our {sick} society - get back to me! or e-mail me at nbose@ic.sunysb.edu.

(additional benefits are a great tan, good workout, new friends, and a new orleans vacation ;) the u.s. government wanted to cut grants to organizers building for katrina recovery - programs for which are difficult and time-consuming to get into.. so independent volunteering is really needed.)

i do run an activist organization called the social justice alliance at stony brook university.. just so you don't think i'm a weirdo looking to scam a hot date..

back
hey, luke speaking. i know i haven't been here in a long-ass time, but i'm glad to see that this community is flourishing to an extent. for a time, i felt as though i had quit livejournal, but i'm not quite too sure what's going now. i have my recording project, the ampex cafe, which some people on myspace may / may not have heard of. so anyone can feel free to post information about local shows that are playing, or national acts that stop by (what? once, twice a year?), post mix lists, whatever. i'll be back sometime soon.

Current Mood: cool
