Upcoming events:

Saturday, October 20th, 3pm - 6pm: The Crack Pipes
Led by singer Ray Colgan, Crack Pipes have been an Austin, Texas tradition since 1995. They bill themselves as "super blues soul garage" and they aren't lying! Their forthcoming album "Fake Eyelashes" (to be released 10/19 on Super Secret Records) captures this great combo in the studio as they have never been before, displaying both the excitement of their live sound and the diversity of their influences. Be sure and see The Crack Pipes Friday Oct. 19th at Home Sweet Home on Chrystie St. in lower Manhattan.

Saturday, October 27th, 3pm - 6pm: Protex, Gold Star, Music City, The Die Group and The Goon Sax
Protex formed in 1978 in Dublin and were among the first wave of Irish punk bands along with Good Vibrations label-mates Rudi and The Undertones. The original incarnation of the band lasted until 1981. In 2010 the New York based Sing Sing label issued an album of unreleased recordings originally intended for Polydor, under the title "Strange Obsessions". The great reception it received encouraged the band to reform and they've been going strong since. See Protex along with Baby Shakes and Music City at Diveria Drive in Brooklyn on Tuesday October 23rd.

Marlon Rabenreither is a throwback to the days when songwriting was entrenched as a celebrated art form. The music he crafts under the moniker Gold Star is, in a word – timeless. His first two albums, Dark Days and Big Blue, captured the energy and spirit of the late ’60s and ’70s when rock ‘n roll and folk-rock were at their peak. Today, many of those artists and bands are legends. With his third album Uppers & Downers, Gold Star scales his own summit to deliver a memorable record that is still etched in the classics, but its stories are told through the prism of the present- The Revue. Gold Star makes a rare New York appearance at Baby's All Right on October 24th.

Conor Lumsden has been playing in bands since he was 12, having made two LPs as part of Irish group The Number Ones and having played in backing groups for Cian Nugent, Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting) and A. Savage (Parquet Courts.) He’s now set out on his own with new project Music City that picks up where The Number Ones left off, making classic, crunchy ‘70s style power-pop- Brooklyn Vegan Music City's new 45 on Static Shock Records, "Pretty Feelings" is an instant pop classic! See them perform it live at Diviera Drive on Tuesday Oct. 23rd with Baby Shakes and Protex!

Hailing from Los Angeles, Die Group bring back the halcyon days of seventies punk rock on their new full length album on SexTape Records, "Disease Control". They are angry and who can blame them? Die Group will rip through hits and misses like "Old and Gross", "Nothing Good Today" and "Longhairs" on Todd's show and during their East Coast Invasion.

The Goon Sax follow in the fabled tradition of Australian indie pop...band member Louis Forster is the son of The Go-Between's Robert Forster. Although all three members of The Goon Sax just reached twenty, they have just released their second album, We're Not Talking (Wichita Recordings). Don't miss this charming band at Alphaville in Brooklyn on October 25th.

Saturday, November 3rd, 3pm - 6pm: Roky Erickson
Roky Erickson is the legendary vocalist of Austin's seminal psychedelic combo, The 13th Floor Elevators, as well as being one of the main songwriters. After numerous mental health issues (documented in the 2005 film "You're Gonna Miss Me") Roky began making solo albums in 1980, often delving into his fandom of horror movies for subject matter. In 2007 he performed for the first time in New York and has triumphantly returned numerous times since. He currently performs Elevators classics as well as such beloved songs from his solo career as "Starry Eyes" and "I Walked With A Zombie". Roky's Oct. 30th show at Monty Hall is sold out, but you can see him on Halloween at The Knockdown Center and Bushwick and hear him live on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show.

Saturday, November 10th, 3pm - 6pm: Kurt Baker Combo- and Friends Of Cesar Romero
The Kurt Baker Combo's new album is aptly titled Let's Get Wild! (Wicked Cool Records). Kurt and company will be making a rare U.S. appearance and be churning out their classic power pop and glam sounds with Todd-O-Phonic Todd. Their run of East Coast dates includes an appearance at Bowery Electric on Friday November 9th.

Friends of Cesar Romero are the kings of Rapid City, South Dakota rock'n'roll! Their prolific bandcamp page includes over 20 releases! Their blend of power pop, punk and garage never fails to impress. They make their East Coast radio debut on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show and perform at Coney Island Baby on a power packed bill with The Schizophonics and Benny Trokan and The Unique Splits on Friday November 9th.
