A Pair of Don Giovanni Records Showcases at Music Hall

February 6th, 2014

Joseph Steinhardt and Zach Gajewski were attending a Boston college when they founded Don Giovanni Records in 2004. The idea was to put out hardcore music they liked, with a specialization, according to Steinhardt, in “releasing music from New Brunswick, N.J., and the surrounding area (including Brooklyn and New York City), and attempting to level the playing field between those bands and bands on larger labels.” But these guys don’t just put out music—they also bring it to you. And this weekend, they’re bringing you plenty over two nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tomorrow night’s showcase includes Laura Stevenson (above, playing “Journey to the Center of the Earth” for Ear Candy) plus Shellshag, Upset, Nude Beach and Worriers. And not to be outdone, Saturday night’s bill features Screaming Females (below, performing “It All Means Nothing” for Sound Opinions) alongside California X, Brick Mower, Priests and Black Wine.

Joseph Steinhardt and Zach Gajewski were attending a Boston college when they founded Don Giovanni Records in 2004.

And this weekend, they’re bringing you plenty over two nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tonight, Laura Stevenson (above, playing “Master of Art”) headlines alongside Jeffrey Lewis, Waxahatchee, Lemuria and Hilly Eye. And tomorrow you can see another packed lineup with Screaming Females, Black Wine, Stormshadow, Home Blitz and Shellshag.

Don Giovanni Records Showcase on Saturday

February 10th, 2011


Joseph Steinhardt and Zach Gajewski founded Don Giovanni Records in 2004 intent to put out the hardcore music they liked, specializing, according to Steinhardt, in “releasing music from New Brunswick, N.J., and the surrounding area, and attempting to level the playing field between those bands and bands on larger labels.” But these guys don’t just put out music—they also bring it to you. In this case that means Screaming Females (above, performing “Fun”), Laura Stevenson and the Cans, Shellshag, Lemuria and Byrds of Paradise will all play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday. Five bands in one night. Don’t miss it.

CMJ Music Marathon Starts Today!

October 20th, 2009

cmj-nyc-2009-wide
The CMJ Music Marathon starts today, and The Bowery Presents has plenty of choices for you with multiple shows all week long at The Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge and Music Hall of Williamsburg. Check out what some of the people at The House List are most excited to see:

Having had “Crystalised” playing on repeat for at least two straight weeks, it’s an understatement to say that I am looking forward to watching the xx perform at CMJ (Music Hall of Williamsburg, Friday). I have also heard there is some great hair I should try to catch on camera. ZAZA is on the wish list because I have yet to witness the atmospheric magic spun by my enchanting friend Jennie. I’ll also try to make the Screaming Females show (Mercury Lounge, Wednesday). I saw them last on Valentine’s Day, when that itty-bitty girl shredded her guitar into itty-bitty heart-shaped pieces. Her vocals hark back to the Dead Kennedys, which wins my deepest reverence. —Mina Kim, Photographer

I’ve got a list of bands I will try to see, among them Bang Bang Eche, an energetic electro-rock group from New Zealand. Check out their new single, “Fistful of Dollars,” and you can catch them around town on Wednesday. (Plus they’ve got shows next week at Music Hall, October 26th, and Mercury Lounge, October 27th.) Fanfarlo’s dreamy melodies and aching lyrics should be a big hit this year. They’re playing Music Hall tonight and The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow. The other group I am desperate to see is School of Seven Bells—playing Music Hall on Friday—who will blow your mind live. This band put out one of my favorite albums last year and is definitely worth checking out if you can make it. —Anna Loosli, Writer

I’m most excited for two Bowery Ballroom shows—Deer Tick on Thursday and then Portugal. The Man on Friday. I must admit that I love Deer Tick. With their tight songwriting and loose live performances, they’re a must-see band every time they play NYC. I’ve only had the chance to see Portugal. The Man twice, at Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, but each time I’ve found them eminently listenable and intriguing, and not just because of their strangely punctuated band name. —R. Zizmor, Editor

See Screaming Females Tomorrow Night

August 31st, 2009


The indie punk band Screaming Females, like Frank Sinatra, do it their way—from booking their own shows to self-releasing their first two albums. Singer Marissa Paternoster, short in height and long in voice, plays guitar with Jarrett Dougherty behind the drums and King Mike on bass. They rose out of the New Brunswick, N.J., basement scene and have earned their fair share of acclaim this year: First, their third album, Power Move, came out on Don Giovanni Records, then they played some dates with Jack White’s newest band, the Dead Weather, and, finally, just a couple of weeks ago, Screaming Females made their TV debut on MTV. And to top all of that, they play Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.

(Check out Screaming Females, above, playing “Bell” at Terminal 5 in July.)
