“Distraught music fans considering going off the deep end when the swimming pool turned concert venue at Williamsburg’s McCarren Park closes later this month can breathe easy. Plans are in the works to keep outdoor concerts in the trendy neighborhood afloat. JellyNYC, the company responsible for the park’s popular “Pool Parties” concert series, is teaming with local officials and community advocacy groups to find the indie-rock mainstay a new home in the area by next summer.” [Read More]

Since our launch back in January traffic has grown substantially here at dailysession (thanks to you, our very attractive readers!) In turn, the demand for new content has risen as well. To satisfy this demand, we’ve brought on a couple of production assistants who help us manage the workload. In order to help offset these new production costs, we’re introducing a few ad campaigns on a couple of pages. Some of the ads you’ll see are partnerships we’ve established with related businesses and others are hosted through Google. Bear with us as we tweak the settings over the next few days to better target the Google ads so that you aren’t bombarded with ‘dental implant’ and other unrelated banners. We appreciate your patience and hope to hear your feedback too! Email us at admin[at]dailysession.com or post your thoughts in the comments below.

It’s a slow day for relevant news so we thought we’d revisit a story that we brought you a few weeks ago. AMNY’s subway musician database has grown substantially since it’s launch. If you haven’t checked it out recently, do so and add your favorite subway musicians to the file. We like Shaker Leg but haven’t seen him around in a while. Have you?

Saturday, Aug 30, 2008 7:00 PM EDT (6:00 PM Doors)
at ROCKS OFF Concert Cruise Series
We will not only be cruising down to the harbor and nosing up to Ms Liberty, but we will also be swinging up the East River to check out the waterfalls. Hell yeah.
This cruise is aboard THE TEMPTRESS and will depart from the World Yacht Marina (Pier 81) – 41 St & the West Side Highway. Boarding will begin at 6pm and the cruise will depart at 7pm SHARP. Don’t be late – it ain’t pretty to be standin on the dock, watching the party sail away!
There are cash bars on board so make sure to swing by the ATM on your way to the boat. There will be food available on board. All cruises are 3 hours.
Remember all the rallying for community support of Roxy’s liquor license application last month? Well, it turns out that it was all in vain. NYMag reported “Roxy suddenly bailed on a community-board meeting where supporters were expected to plead for its reopening. Gay City News hasn’t solved the mystery of the withdrawal (the club’s lawyer says his client gave no reason for it), but it sounds like it may be for good: ‘The difference between a postponement [which occurred last month] and a withdrawal, the community board noted, is that the withdrawal means the Roxy would likely not return to the table.'”

From 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Central Park SummerStage
A powerful program of Brooklyn-based soul and funk masters who redefine the irresistible retro 60’s sound.
Sometimes called a female James Brown, the Brooklyn based “Queen of Funk,” Sharon Jones, has been performing since the 1970’s. Starting out singing in churches and talent shows, Ms. Jones has spent her life perfecting her trademark combination of soul and funk. Her band, the Dap-Kings, who recently toured with Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson, is chock full of masterful musicians. City Parks Foundation was an early supporter of the multi grammy nominated Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings who headlined in 2006, at Historic Harlem’s Jackie Robinson Park, through the organization’s free CityParks Concerts series. Her latest album with the Dap-Kings, 100 Days, 100 Nights, released last October, is a powerful retro throwback to the 60’s.
Funk and soul continue to pour out of Brooklyn with the birth of the Menahan Street Band. The Menahan Street Band shares members with Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, the Budos Band, and El Michels Affair (themselves veterans of Central Park SummerStage). They produce an irresistible brand of music that has been described as classic, yet raw groove.
Whether from the church pews of Alabama or Brooklyn, or on her cutting-edge funk singles, Naomi Shelton is renowned for her cathartic brand of soul. And while wrenching your heart, she also gets your feet dancing. Her funk classic, “Forty-First Street Breakdown,” is one of the most sampled snippets for DJ’s looking for real soul.

South American beats from Argentina and Uruguay mixed with house, trip-hop and lounge sensibilities to create “tango electronic,” complete with striking video imagery.
Bajofondo, from South America, skillfully mix traditional music styles from Argentina and Uruguay with house, trip-hop and lounge sensibilities to create what critics have dubbed “tango electronic.” This is music to dance to, and their live performances include strikingly original projected video imagery.Yoruba priest and musician Osunlade has amassed a global legion of faithful fans through his spiritually-based compositions, and as a prolific house music producer and the founder of Yoruba Records. He has worked with artists such as Patti Labelle, Roy Ayers and Cesaria Evora and has remixed countless artists from every genre. His discography is extensive and impressive, with over 50 releases to his credit, the latest of which is Elements Beyond.
