Event Invite

Guadalupe InnVinyl Me, Please present: The Spins ft. Ayalew Mesfin ‘Hasabe (My Worries)’

Ayalew Mesfin is among the legends of a 1970s Ethiopian funk era whose music was forced underground by his country’s government. Now, over 40 years later, his triumphant return gives us a chance to discover a rare & beautiful moment in music history.

jojoSOUL is on the decks!

Marc Smith is an expert songwriter and sound engineer. His originals are all sonically complex and emotionally poetic. Marc’s music draws from reality, and is a beautifully emotional expression. Don’t miss this chance to see it performed by his masterfully selected, extremely talented band. 😁

Musical Reunion! Performing with Matt Dallow at No Pants Subway Ride 2018

Thanks to everyone who bravely dropped their pants for the #NoPantsSubwayRide2018!

Sunnyside Social Club played in the Union Square platform as pants-less dancers boogied to the music.  We then marched the party upstairs and out to the street to the afterparty at Bar 13 as the trumpet valves and the accordion player’s fingers began to freeze!

I am especially excited to have had the opportunity to perform with Matt Dallow, accordion-man/multi-instrumentalist, songwriter/performer, entertainer.  I met Matt about 15 years ago near our hometowns on Long Island.  Matt’s band “Space Robot Scientists” performed regularly at what was called “Saints and Sinners“, where I had my first few DJ gigs spinning underground house and hip-hop on vinyl and CDs, making barely enough money to drink for the night.  The memories immediately conjure visions of theremins, strange art exhibits, Jameson, and DJing indoors with a cigarette in NY.

Fast-forward to present day- Matt and I have recently found our paths crossing as performers at Club Cumming, where he has a weekly residency performing Monday evenings.  He has also connected me with contacts via Facebook posts looking for musicians to cover gigs, which led to me working with Zachary Clause.  I’ve also enjoyed playing in recent gigs in vintage trains and subway platforms with Matt’s band, Sunnyside Social Club.  

It is inspiring for me to see life’s paths cross this way, and gives me an unexpected opportunity to thank Matt as a respected peer and artist, and to acknowledge the longtime efforts of a couple of simultaneously occurring weirdos from Long Island.  Cheers, old friend!  Getting to perform together and being a fan of your journey reminds me how important it is to me that we are out here navigating this world with our instruments.  Here’s to being a couple of weirdos in Brooklyn, fighting and surviving each day to entertain NYC and beyond.  And thank you to everyone along our paths, for shaping, fueling, and supporting this weirdness.  😉

Go check out Matt Dallow Music and be sure to tip the accordion man when ya see him!
