Big Takeover magazine 30th Anniversary Festival in NYC July 30 & 31!

I would be completely and totally remiss if I failed to inform you of an immensely cool and damn-near monumental concert series going down at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY just two days from now!  I should've posted this earlier, but better late than never.  Big Takeover magazine is 30 friggin' years old and editor, publisher, and all around arbiter of "music with heart," Jack Rabid is celebrating by curating a two-day event brimming with many BT faves including ultra rare New York performances from The Avengers, For Against, Jon Auer of the Posies, Paul Collins, Flower (pre-Versus), Channel 3, Mark Burgess of the Chameleons UK, Don McGlashan of the Mutton Birds, and even Jack's own Springhouse!   Click on the flyer to your left for the whole lineup, and visit the Bell House events page for show times.  If you're in the Tri-State area and can spare an evening (or preferably two) come out this Friday and Saturday.  Again, sorry for not alerting you of this earlier folks!

I am disappointed I can't be there...I would love to see Flower. Please post a big review to let us know how it went.

I love your choice of words - "and even Jack's own Springhouse!" Even?! As if there was any chance he wasn't going to play...

Wow, when you click on that flyer and make it bigger, it's almost like 3-D or something.

I wish I were about 20 years younger and about 2 million dollars richer. The (U.S.) Libertines!!! Don McGlashan (of Mutton Birds fame). For Against.

Holy crap, you can't get better for obscure (if not willfully) and great artists.

Congrats to Jack Rabib whose The Big Takeover mag helped introduce me to some of these and others.

I remember doing a small dj gig on thursday nights in the mid 90s and Jack would come on after me for a few weeks. Distinctly remember him lighting up when I played "Pearl" by Chapterhouse. He's an institution in New York pop circles.
