Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for Monday, January 4th

Hello Dear Readers,

Last night was so much fun. I was all set to play at Romtoms in Sean Flinn and the Royal we and when we were setting up, we realized that all members of Y La Bamba were present. On the fly we decided to do a short Y La Bamba set before Mia Riddle played. It was super fun and we were all warmed up having played the previous night. Then the lovely Mia Riddle from Brooklyn played. She usually has a full band but tonight was accompanied only by her guitar and cohort Amy on vocals and piano. It sounded really good she has a very pretty voice and sense of song craft. I think I will have to catch her tomorrow at the Woods. And then we played as Sean Flinn. I was pretty impressed with myself given the circumstances of not practicing in several weeks and learning a new song via a voice note on my phone. Anyway I stayed out too late last night and I am having the hardest time concentrating on anything. Anyway, here are some events happening tonight.

Monday, January 4th

Music Millennium is having Community Day with Helen Chaya, Gregory Stockert, and Ezza Rose. I could not find out much info on this deal, but I remember being very impressed by Ezza Rose and her guitar and sometimes banjo attack on folk music the one time I saw her. She is playing some other "folks" this evening as well. Which is to say that this might be considered a folky event. It is also a FREE and ALL AGES event This is an event sponsored by KZME The show is ALL AGES and FREE at 7 PM.

Valentine's is having a show with Albuquerque Boys Choir (Albuquerque), Leonard Mynx, and Trevor Giuliani. The Albuquerque Boys Choir is actual a trio of females, though they are from Albuquerque I find this a little off putting. False advertising? Whatevs. They have a video where that are all playing instruments and singing in three part harmonies and doing a choreographed dance routine. They are pro. Leonard Mynx is also playing the thing. He is not from Albuquerque, or a boys choir. But he does write a mess of songs. Come check out his latest offerings. Trevor is a myspace friend o mine. I remember accepting his friend request based on how good his voice was. Check it out. The show is FREE and starts at 9 PM.

If you see me at these shows please say, "Hi".


Leonard will probably have some sort of band, but if he doesn't, it will sound like this.
