III Points and Club Space are preparing to take over Lot 11 Skatepark on July 16 for a techno and house rave, amplifying an important genre of skate culture.

III Points founder David Sinopoli said the pop-up concert, Andrew Music Club, will celebrate Miami’s quintessential streetwear and skate brand, Andrew Downtown, through an evening of up-and-coming international and local DJs.

“Andrew is pretty much at the heart of skate culture in Miami,” says Sinopoli. “A lot of these skaters don’t just listen to one type of music, and techno is definitely one of the [the ones they listen to]so what better than to have a fucking rave.”

Don’t forget your skateboard. Half of the park will remain open to skateboarding, while the other will be bustling with live mixes from artists Elias Garcia, INVT and Sel.6, who will also each perform at III Points in October. The headliner of the event is Australian DJ/producer Mall Grab.

This would be the very first III Points pop-up at Lot 11, Miami’s largest and fastest growing skatepark. Andrew Music Club joins a growing list of annual III Points events such as III Joints (a 4/20 celebration), the Björk Orchestral (a collaboration with an experimental orchestra) and S3quenc3 (an evening of alternative electronic music).

“The idea with those who don’t attend festival events is to take interesting spots for the local community and bring in corresponding growing talent,” Sinopoli said. “Everything III Points does is really trying to put magnifying glasses on Miami.”

He hopes the all-ages rave can be a safe space to connect with others in the scene, especially for young locals.

“Miami needed a skate park for the kids,” says Sinopoli. “This skatepark is a much-loved place, and the intentions behind it are very pure.”

Andrew Music Club. With Mall Grab, Elias Garcia, INVT and Sel.6. 6 p.m. Saturday, July 16, at Lot 11 Skatepark, 301-349 NW Second Ave., Miami. Tickets cost between $14.89 and $20.40 via off.fm.

The Sewickley Music Club had quite an exciting spring with a stellar line-up of artists entertaining club members and their guests.

The March Winds seemed very fitting as the Pittsburgh Trombone Project found their own wind playing and educating on their various trombones. As the April showers rolled in, the Roger Barbour Jazz Band kept the beat in their usual, elegant fashion with a mix of soft and uplifting jazz melodies, completely conjuring up any stifled spirits. With the arrival of May and all the beautiful flowers, the club’s spring luncheon was adorned with fragrant bouquets of fresh tulips and baby’s breath, a perfect backdrop for mezzo-soprano Katherine Soroka and Company as they performed breathtaking operatic pieces that echoed throughout the country club.

As the Music Club shuts down for the summer, the Board of Directors remains active and hard at work behind the scenes, booking entertainment and preparing for everything to come in the year ahead.

This special lineup of upcoming artists is set to share their talents:

October 11 – 3Rivers4 Barbershop Quartet

November 8 – Aeolian Winds

December 13 – Bryan Sable/pianist

March 14 – Carnival of Souls/Celtic

April 11 – Deborah Silverstein/classical flute and piano

May 10 – Pittsburgh Brass Project

The club meets six times a year for shows at churches and country clubs in the Sewickley area and welcomes accomplished musicians and music lovers.

Now is the perfect time for anyone considering membership to reach out via the club’s Facebook page at Sewickley Music Club or by contacting Suzanne Fenello at 724 316-3631 for more information on how to join.

Do you like vintage hindi movie songs? Connect to an online music club https://vivasclub7.com/do-you-like-vintage-hindi-movie-songs-connect-to-an-online-music-club/ Sun, 29 May 2022 05:27:00 +0000 https://vivasclub7.com/do-you-like-vintage-hindi-movie-songs-connect-to-an-online-music-club/

At 10:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Jamuna Iyer, a retired bank clerk from Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, logs on to Nostalgiaana, an online community of music lovers. It’s time for his popular show – Jukebox – in which six songs from selected Hindi films from the 1980s are played on a loop for 30 minutes. Each song inspires a detailed discussion of its creation and composition, the singers and lyricists involved, the raag and beats used as well as lesser-known anecdotes.

What makes online music clubs important is the concept of “guided music appreciation sessions they offer”.

When the title track of Yaadein (2001) – “Yaadein Yaad Aati Hain” – was played during a session, show hosts Kalpana Swamy and Kunal Desai explained how the song was the last piece recorded by the lyricist well known Anand Bakshi. A few key words from the song – nagme, kisse, baatein, yaadien – even made it into the title of the biography written by his son Rakesh. Part of the melody of the original is the introductory score of Sakhi Saheli, a broadcast on Vividh Bharti, still today.

While there’s no shortage of platforms for someone looking to listen to soothing music, what makes online music clubs important is the concept of “guided music appreciation sessions that they offer,” says Swamy, a keen-earned movie buff for “Hindi music, especially Bollywood.” minute, sprinkling it with anecdotes and trivialities.

Desai, an IT consultant by day, and Swamy, a communications professional, chose post-1980s Bollywood music for Jukebox because “the popular perception so far has been critical of 1980s Hindi music and more”. “People feel that Bollywood music became more rhythmic during this era and was a far cry from the kind of soothing melodies that marked earlier eras,” Desai says. The Mumbaikar duo scripts on excel sheets to break down musical nuances for an audience of people of all ages and different geographies, bound together by a love for good music. “And once you know more about your favorite songs, the joy of listening to them increases dramatically,” says Desai.

This shared joy of listening to great music is what brought together Shankar Iyer from Mumbai and Balaji Ramachandran from Chennai to launch Nostalgiaana two years ago. They would hold shows offline before Covid, but the pandemic demanded that everything be moved online. And that led to their first shows in April and May 2020, which continue to this day. Over 250 members meet three times a week online to listen to Hindi film music.

Members from various countries log on to Jukebox for Rs290 for three months, while Iyer’s Retro Radio Revival (R4) is offered at an annual fee of Rs2,500, which includes 12 monthly broadcasts plus 12 repeat broadcasts. The Nostalgiaana R4 team recently performed “Tera Dil Kahan Hai”, by Chandni Chowk (1954) for filmmaker BR Chopra’s birthday in April. “As music lovers know the variants of Saagar’s ‘Saagar Kinare’ (1985) and enthusiastically [recall] the song’s predecessors like ‘Thandi Hawayein’ (Naujawan, 1951) and songs with a similar progression like ‘Rahein Na Rahein Hum’ (Mamta, 1966), this lesser-heard beauty of Chandni Chowk is rarely mentioned,” says Iyer. He shares an interesting anecdote about the song: “Despite five lyricists in this BR Chopra film, information on the song’s lyricist is not available. [anywhere].”

In its recently concluded monthly theme of non-cinematic songs by singers of popular Hindi films, the R4 team presented a full song (2.5 minutes) made for an advertisement for Kolynos toothpaste. The duet, sung by Manna Dey and Usha Mangeshkar in a swinging rhythm, won over Nostalgiaana customers, given its total movie song feel. The song features composer Babul and lyricist Akhtar Romani, known for songs like “Chale The Saath Milke” and “Bekhudi Mein Sanam” (Haseena Maan Jayegi, 1968).

The concept of like-minded people coming together to enjoy great music online is nothing new. Previously, this happened on Yahoo groups and Orkut communities, but the presence of a new platform, be it Facebook or Zoom, that offers ease of getting together, with audio and video options, makes it a attractive offer.

In Bangalore, RMIM (rec.music.indian.misc), a community of underground music lovers formed in 1992 as an unmoderated Usenet newsgroup, now thrives on Facebook and WhatsApp. Its members discuss and debate trivia about Hindi film music of the 1940s and 1950s, both offline and online.

And, in Panaji, Atul Mishra and his wife, Lata, both retired nuclear scientists and former employees of the Bhabha Atomic Research Center, host online shows honoring Bollywood’s ‘golden age’ music directors on Zoom. Atul sings, whistles and plays the guitar; Lata joins him for duets. Atul anchors the shows with tons of background anecdotes. He sums up the theme of their shows in three words: RCB to RDB, that is, RC Boral to RD Burman. “We choose the top 100 songs from great composers like SD Burman, Shankar-Jaikishan, Naushad and Madan Mohan and present them to our audience of around 80 attendees every week,” says Atul. The show, which lasts almost an hour, is broadcast live on social networks; no more than 10 songs are played per session. For now, the pair are devoting shows to music mainstay OP Nayyar and will follow him with Khayyam.

As many old Bollywood Hindi songs continue to be rehashed and remixed, the desire to step back in time and listen to these timeless gems in their original form and discuss them with like-minded people is gaining momentum. like never before. And, for some like Mumbai marketing manager Renuka Arora, these vintage music clubs are just a way to “feel relaxed and connected”.

Two solos are performed for the solo piano event, one of which must be memorized. Entrants are judged on memory, accuracy, correct marks, expression marks, and mark values. The Rhythm category includes proper tempo, continuity, control, and regularity of rhythm. For piano technique, participants are scored on piano fingering, hand position, and pedal.

The DLC, the year-long downtown music club • Salt Lake Magazine https://vivasclub7.com/the-dlc-the-year-long-downtown-music-club-salt-lake-magazine/ Thu, 26 May 2022 14:23:13 +0000 https://vivasclub7.com/the-dlc-the-year-long-downtown-music-club-salt-lake-magazine/

The DLC is a vibrant little music club located in the heart of downtown’s famous arcade bar. Quarters. Over the past year, the spot has become a quality small venue option for touring bands criss-crossing the west, as well as a go-to venue for local musicians to headline a late-night show. weekend.

After a year in business, certain patterns began to emerge, none of which escaped club manager Shaina Floyd.

“I love doing this because I often hear local bands that I otherwise wouldn’t have found,” Floyd says. “And honestly, it’s really cool to be able to start hosting slightly larger touring groups and then pair local bands with those touring groups.”

Playing a music program five days a week, Floyd sees the bands on tour earlier in the week as they travel to/from Denver and Seattle and other Western towns. On weekends, three-band local bills tend to predominate in a space permitted for 200 spectators.

Despite the strong commitment to local sounds, Floyd admits that for the first year attendance has been “completely hit or miss”. That’s thanks to a few factors: COVID regulations and the public’s on/off desire to attend live events; local bands probably play too many shows in the market; and people are still finding the place for the first time, even after 12 months of operation.

There’s a kind of secret weapon that The DLC enjoys, as dozens of people are playing old-school arcade games in space, seemingly any time the bar is open. Some serious numbers come on weekends, when nearby State Street is buzzing. Floyd says “stragglers” in Quarters’ “captive audience” have been known to hear sounds that draw them in, drifting around the room after arriving in Quarters with no intention of hearing live music.

Over the next year, the DLC might see some very slight programming changes.

“I’d like to do more holiday events,” Floyd says, “and more social events. Maybe people have ideas for special showcases. I’d like to do an acoustic party and different monthly events. We really want to help build the music scene.

At some point in 2022, chances are a second quarter will be up and running. This one will be at Sugarhouse, with a smaller footprint and a kitchen but without an indoor concert hall. Construction has been underway for a while and the owners have become regulars at monthly DABC meetings to argue for an upcoming license.

As this process unfolds, the DLC will host its first anniversary party, an event scheduled for Saturday, May 28. A group battle will be presented that evening, with Scheister, strawberry cough, Smooth velvets, Cudney and under the sparrows to take part. The winner receives a trophy and a handsome sum of $1,000. This is a 21+ event with $5 tickets pre-sold at quarterslc.com.

The DLC’s first year of operation has been a process, with the room’s brightly colored stage, full bar, and rock’n’roll-plus booking policy finding a foothold. Floyd believes the club’s growth reflects and pushes the local scene as a whole.

By becoming a true music city, Floyd believes, “We are getting there. There are many more venues opening, including downtown. So we’re getting there slowly.

Music has the power to change communities and shape history. There are countless examples of how music has challenged the status quo and become the face of social movements. Whether it be anti-apartheid music in nigeria, Ukrainian anti-war musicWhere feminist protest songs in latin america, music is often the key to authoritarian resistance and community support. But like any powerful form of artistic expression, music and musicians can be target by those who seek to silence or censor voices of change or resistance. In some cases, governments will attempt ban music that challenges their power, while at other times they can attack the artist directly.

On the other hand, music also has the power to amplify voices and promote linguistic diversity. Marginalized communities can use song to teach others about their communities, histories, languages, etc. Global Voices explored how Roma communities use music to integrate into Czech society and how Dalit groups in India share their stories and experiences as a form of community resistance. Likewise, there is Puerto Rican rappers working to challenge the hegemony of English in the American music scene.

To celebrate the stories of music that seeks to change the world, the Global Voices Music Club meets monthly to discuss music-related stories, plan our music coverage, and simply share songs and musical inspiration from our regions and cultures. Through our global community, we share our musical traditions, offer recommendations and support, and pass on our own musical experiences and stories.

DJ BO on his All-Rockin’ Roundtable ‘The Critical Music Club’ – This is Shanghai https://vivasclub7.com/dj-bo-on-his-all-rockin-roundtable-the-critical-music-club-this-is-shanghai/ Fri, 20 May 2022 08:49:28 +0000 https://vivasclub7.com/dj-bo-on-his-all-rockin-roundtable-the-critical-music-club-this-is-shanghai/

DJ BO, ironic and self-proclaimed “Shanghai’s No. 2 DJ”, wears many hats, both literally and metaphorically; he’s a full-time DJ, college culture lecturer, editor/co-founder of Mongolian culture brand ARTGER, writer and host-curator of The Critical Music Club.

We caught up with the Florida native to find out more about all this and more.

First off, what’s the story behind your silver top hat and child’s costume?
It’s the best I’ve ever watched; three years and it’s been downhill ever since. I grew up in a dance studio, my mother being a dance teacher. I did 10 years of tap, jazz and ballet.

Recently, I took out my tap shoes again and integrated this discipline into performances at LOFAS and Shake. I’m not quite Fred Astaire, but then again, Astaire didn’t know how or where to scratch a James Brown record to get the best breakbeat, so fuck it Fred.

What is The Critical Music Club for those who don’t know?
The Critical Music Club is “The All-Rockin’ Roundtable” where musicians, DJs, music writers and various miscreants meet to talk about music. It started at La Mezcaleria, but has since moved to weekly online meetings on Sundays at 8 p.m.

Basically, it’s a music discussion group, reviewing everything from 1950s folk to local post-punk. People of all levels of knowledge/experience are welcome; as long as you do the “homework” by listening, you will be fine.

Check it out live or the videos I post after on my WeChat channel (BorderBreaks) and YouTube.

What can people expect?
There are two main parts to every meeting. There is a review list, which is a top 5 ranked list on a fun theme, like “Animal Songs” and “Travel Songs”. Our critics send them to me before each meeting, and then we discuss them at the meeting.

Then there are the discussions about the album. Our critics listen to the assigned albums, then we review them at the meeting. For at least one of the albums per meeting, we have someone associated with it who comes to talk about it.

This includes blues guitarist Seth Pandu Blumberg for the Grammy-winning album Ike Turner. Rising with the Blues; Billboard #1 hit songwriter Phillip Jarrell talks about his debut album I sing my songs for you; and local post-punk band Solid Liqui – 固体李逵 – to talk about their album Countless mirages – 无浪击石.

Tell us about some of the guests you have coming…
We have a wide variety…

Legendary Hong Kong DJ Andrew Bull to talk about a very rare mix LP of his being digitized for the first time.

Beijing superstar Helen Feng will talk about her band Nova Heart’s influential self-titled album.

And American experimental/electronic rock band Zen Mother to talk about their new album Millennium Trash Preach.

Are you involved in any other projects at the moment?
Besides writing poetry about soggy cabbage? [See below] I do DJ livestreams on my WeChat (BrianOffenther) both for my regular home at La Mezcaleria and for kids parties; still works daily on ARTGER, the Mongolian documentary brand that I co-founded; and I’m thrilled to relaunch the “GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock N’ Roll Book Club”.

Interesting. Tell us a bit more about ARTGER?
I am co-founder and editor-in-chief of ARTGER, which mainly produces documentaries based in Mongolia. Word ger is the Mongolian word for yurt, and is also the basis of the word family gerbuth. It is therefore an “artistic family”.

I had lived in Mongolia for three years, the first two in the countryside with the American Peace Corps volunteer program. When I have the chance, I still go there every year, whether it’s to bring the first international reggae tour there, to host some of the ARTGER videos myself, but always above all to see a very special place to me.

ARTGER has Facebook, Instagram, Bili Bili, and more, but it’s mostly on YouTube, where he has over 448,000 subscribers. Javkha Ara is the director and the most involved, doing an amazing job.

The breakout star is undeniably Nargie, aka the “homeboy of the bad luck (campaign).” When I met him, he was a part-time Mongolian language teacher for the Peace Corps Volunteers. I knew he was a star right away.

The first time he found himself in front of a TV camera was when I asked him to be the first Mongolian Elvis tribute artist for a little educational show.

_20220520155747.png

Now, because he’s such a celebrity for ARTGER, he’s the face of Little Sheep Hot Pot in Mongolia!

_20220520155413.jpg

ARTGER also has a weird little brother, called FunkyGer. For this channel, I produced Shanghai-based content, some of which features “Nargie’s Cousin”, City-Boy Baagi.

And what about your GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock N’ Roll Book Club?
I started the GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock ‘N’ Roll Book Club in March 2020, when Shanghai had its first, softer lockdown.

I knew I wanted the events to continue at a time when most venues were closed. I’ve always enjoyed reading and I take my job as a DJ very seriously, which involves knowing everything about music.

I had never been to a book club before, but I also really liked the contradictory spirit of rock ‘n’ roll mixed with something people associate with old ladies in red hats. Shit, I wear a red hat too. Why are these old ladies having fun?

All of the books have rock ‘n’ roll as their general theme, from biographies to cultural studies to books on recording studios. We read them at home and then meet to discuss them twice per book.

We were fortunate to have authors and other special guests joining us in person or online, like MC5’s Wayne Kramer and Curtis Mayfield biographer Travis Atria.

We just finished a massive tome on Paul Robeson, who influenced singers like Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan and others. Hit me to join the next book.

The success of this club led me to create the Guilt Free Cin(ema) Club, which organizes film screenings exclusively for public domain films. The highlight of these were silent films starring jazz pianist Tony Bott. Can’t wait to go back to Guilt Free Cin. Club at the end of confinement.

soggy cabbage

By DJBO

It’s for dinner

It’s for a snack

It runs through my veins

When I’m lying on my back

Do I want to talk?

No, there’s soggy cabbage to chop

It’s time to exercise, maybe do some push-ups

But how can I do this, with hands made of turnips

What’s in this kuaidi box, in a neat cardboard packaging?

Maybe something fancy, to make my room more lavish?

Damn, no. This is Traditional Chinese Medicine

And fucking soggy cabbage

We have a wide variety…

Legendary Hong Kong DJ Andrew Bull to talk about a very rare mix LP of his being digitized for the first time.

Beijing superstar Helen Feng will talk about her band Nova Heart’s influential self-titled album.

And American experimental/electronic rock band Zen Mother to talk about their new album Millennium Trash Preach.

Are you involved in any other projects at the moment?
Besides writing poetry about soggy cabbage? [See below] I do DJ livestreams on my WeChat (BrianOffenther) both for my regular home at La Mezcaleria and for kids parties; still works daily on ARTGER, the Mongolian documentary brand that I co-founded; and I’m thrilled to relaunch the “GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock N’ Roll Book Club”.

Interesting. Tell us a bit more about ARTGER?
I am co-founder and editor-in-chief of ARTGER, which mainly produces documentaries based in Mongolia. Word ger is the Mongolian word for yurt, and is also the basis of the word family gerbuth. It is therefore an “artistic family”.

I had lived in Mongolia for three years, the first two in the countryside with the American Peace Corps volunteer program. When I have the chance, I still go there every year, whether it’s to bring the first international reggae tour there, to host some of the ARTGER videos myself, but always above all to see a very special place to me.

ARTGER has Facebook, Instagram, Bili Bili, and more, but it’s mostly on YouTube, where he has over 448,000 subscribers. Javkha Ara is the director and the most involved, doing an amazing job.

The breakout star is undeniably Nargie, aka the “homeboy of the bad luck (campaign).” When I met him, he was a part-time Mongolian language teacher for the Peace Corps Volunteers. I knew he was a star right away.

The first time he found himself in front of a TV camera was when I asked him to be the first Mongolian Elvis tribute artist for a little educational show.

Now, because he’s such a celebrity for ARTGER, he’s the face of Little Sheep Hot Pot in Mongolia!

ARTGER also has a weird little brother, called FunkyGer. For this channel, I produced Shanghai-based content, some of which features “Nargie’s Cousin”, City-Boy Baagi.

And what about your GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock N’ Roll Book Club?
I started the GOING THROUGH PAGES Rock ‘N’ Roll Book Club in March 2020, when Shanghai had its first, softer lockdown.

I knew I wanted the events to continue at a time when most venues were closed. I’ve always enjoyed reading and I take my job as a DJ very seriously, which involves knowing everything about music.

I had never been to a book club before, but I also really liked the contradictory spirit of rock ‘n’ roll mixed with something people associate with old ladies in red hats. Shit, I wear a red hat too. Why are these old ladies having fun?

All of the books have rock ‘n’ roll as their general theme, from biographies to cultural studies to books on recording studios. We read them at home and then meet to discuss them twice per book.

We were fortunate to have authors and other special guests joining us in person or online, like MC5’s Wayne Kramer and Curtis Mayfield biographer Travis Atria.

We just finished a massive tome on Paul Robeson, who influenced singers like Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan and others. Hit me to join the next book.

The success of this club led me to create the Guilt Free Cin(ema) Club, which organizes film screenings exclusively for films in the public domain. The highlight of these were silent films starring jazz pianist Tony Bott. I can’t wait to go back to Guilt Free Cin. Club at the end of confinement.

soggy cabbage

By DJBO

It’s for dinner

It’s for a snack

It runs through my veins

When I’m lying on my back

Do I want to talk?

No, there’s soggy cabbage to chop

It’s time to exercise, maybe do some push-ups

But how can I do this, with hands made of turnips

What’s in this kuaidi box, in a neat cardboard packaging?

Maybe something fancy, to make my room more lavish?

Damn, no. This is Traditional Chinese Medicine

And fucking soggy cabbage
