Songfight Live 2016 in New York City. The weekend of July 16 & 17th!

On the 17th, we will be playing at Sidewalk (6th and Ave A) from 6pm to 10pm (at least).

Give me a sense of who can come and who can't and I'll work on getting a good place for the 16th as well.

JB is in and bringing his post-punk trio with him, so please find a venue that accepts very loud music. :)

Also I passed the news to Jonathan Mann and he said he wants to show up too, depending on his schedule.

I'm sure he is scrambling to line up a show in Australia for those dates as we speak. ;)

When I was in NYC last summer I happened to pop into Sidewalk. That's a cool little venue. Nice score!

I am so totally in. Too bad I don't work with folks in the NY office anymore so I can't use this as an excuse for another expensable business trip. Oh well. :)

By the time this happens, my family and I will have completed our relocation to Pittsburgh. Pretty easy to escape to NYC for a couple of days from there, so mark me down.

However, as I'm only like 90% sure, don't mark me down for a set. I don't think I'll have any time to rehearse anyway. Hope to see you guys there!

I'm booking my travel and hotel now so this better not change dates. I'll be arriving the morning of the 12th and leaving the evening of the 18th.

Also, hotel-wise I'm going with the Sheraton Four Points in SoHo. It's fairly cheap (for NYC anyway, $240/night-ish) and I've stayed there before - highly recommended and in a great location. I'm not interested in splitting my room this time around but it's really cost-effective for anyone who does. I've also stayed at the Pod Hotel and it's okay (and really cheap! at around $140/night) but not wonderful.

Or if you really want to live on the edge you could try Hotel Tonight.

I'm interested. Was going to try lining up shows in Melbourne but I suppose if I shorten my trip from 1 week there to 2 ... I'll add value to my appearances by restricting their supply ;) Air Canada happens to be having a sale. #solongonaplanethough #isthisthewrongforumfor#tags

Just for those of you not following Nur Ein - Pepper Jane is a friend of mine from Toowoomba who has just thrown her hat into the ring over there.

Since my employment status still makes it seem unlikely that I will make it to NYC this year - I thought I better find a replacement Australian for you. You know you need one - to add a bit of class to the proceedngs and make sure the rest of you lot behave yourselves. (oh - she is quite an excellent songwriter and performer too..so there's that as well. Already thinking that a Pepper Jane/Holly Furlone duo could be quite impressive)

But I believe PJ, that the general protocol is that it will be good form to have a Songfight-proper entry on the board pre-NYC.

Plenty of time for you to knock a few of those up after you win Nur Ein.

She just needs to slip the phrase "safe harbor" into her Boilermaker song.

Dear Oddly Muddy Caravan Ray (aka Sting Ray, you're welcome)
Thank you for delegating me as Australian representative - that's going in Scenestr and themusic.com.au ... When my marketing-department personality gets granted access to the limbs and the technology.

Dear Cavedweller Glennny
Your challenge is accepted.

Bien venue

Niveous, I would say that I am 90% in. Have to check on a few things but I think I can manage it. Pencil me in.

Traditionally the title gets announced about a week before the event.
