“CLINTON HILL— On Sunday, the first of five Urban Arts Markets was held on Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill. The day-long event was harried by intermittent rainstorms, the first of which struck before the market began at noon. The second storm broke around 3 p.m., forcing the market and all of its vendors to close shop just as the event had begun to attract more pedestrian traffic.
But during a three-hour window of sunshine on Sunday, the market (situated right by Pratt University) flourished and offered a preview of what organizers expect during the next four events. The vendors and perusing shoppers displayed a carefree, summer spirit that seemed irrepressible. Music flowed from the stage, and small local businesses filled the tents with a tantalizing and colorful variety of handcrafts, accessories and art.” [Read More]

Bruce Tantum of TIme Out New York’s ‘club’ section breaks down a few DJ categories that exist here in NY and talks to some key players from each grouping. Here’s the intro:
“Much has been made of the perceived demise of the superstar spinner, the kind who shows up at a shiny superclub, doles out the same insipid set of superficial music that he’s played for the past year and a half, collects his five-figure fee and heads for the nearest Learjet. We’d say good riddance—except that so many of those guys are still around. Thankfully, there are plenty of other ways to measure success other than monetarily, and TONY caught up with a few key members from the city’s clubland community to discover more about how they view their nocturnal accomplishments.” [Read More]

MSG launched a new show called NYC Sound Tracks. Here’s the info from their website:
“‘NYC Sound Tracks’ is an eight-episode series that goes underground to find the most talented New York City subway musicians. Tapping into the literal ground level of the music industry, these subway musicians play their souls out trying to make a living and hoping for their big break. The winner, as chosen by the viewers via www.MSG.com, will have the opportunity to play as an opening act on the stage of one of Madison Square Garden’s prestigious venues.”
They have the previous episode, schedules and other info posted online here.
AMNY started a subway musician datasbase and wants New Yorkers to help them expand the data. They’re creating a file for each musician they like like with some basic information, a photo and audio and video when possible. They ask of us: “Next time you see a great musician in the subway, snap a photo, shoot some cell phone video, find out their name, remember the station where you saw them and send it in so the rest of our readers can see them too.” Check out/Add to the database here.
