Carla & Curtis Play End of World Gig in NYC on Dec 20th

Posted in A Day in the Life, Gigs | No Comments »

Carla & Curtis performing at Goodbye Blue Monday

So how’s that for a title? 😉

I was originally set to join Curtis Becraft for his gig at Bushwick Brooklyn’s Goodbye Blue Monday on Dec 20th at 9pm, when he turned around and got *me* a gig to fill in for a cancellation at 11pm. Curtis, sweetheart that he is, agreed to stay and sit in with me for the later set, so it’s gonna be a fun night of music.

It’s not that I believe that the world will end on Dec 21st as the Mayans predicted, BUT if it so happens that there is some kind of apocalyptic event, I will have at least spent my final hours making music with good friends. That works for me!

Curtis and I have some fun musical things planned for the New Year, so this gig will just be a teaser. Come early for Curtis’ gig, grab a bite from the kitchen, and then hang out with us for my 11pm slot.

If the world does end, you don’t want to sleep through it. Come on out!

This Saturday, November 10th, I’ll be performing at Branded Saloon in Brooklyn, as part of Curtis Becraft’s Song Circle and Band Share.

I’ve really been enjoying my gigs with Curtis, who in addition to the accordion, plays a few other instruments. He also has a band, Curtis and the Dilettantes, who will be performing covers on Nov 30th at Wicked Willy’s, and I’ll be joining them as well. Should be fun!

Come out this weekend for a night of music and fun!

Come to My August Musical Residency at Word Up!

CLH playing in front of Word Up for Make Music New York 2012

My eagerly-awaited musical residency at Washington Heights’ Word Up Bookstore is here! On July 1st, Word Up’s lease was unexpectedly terminated, and they were given 30 days to pack up. Fortunately, other locations have been presented for the future, and a 30 day extension was granted, so now the gig is back on!

I’m scheduled to play the first four Thursdays of August, and I’m gonna give the last days at this location all I got. I even hired a young, up and coming guitar player, Kevin Frias, so we can do fun and interesting covers, including Jeff Buckley’s “Lover, You Should Have Come Over” and Britney Spears’ “Toxic”. Should be an interesting time. It’s a FREE SHOW. Come on out!
