Look everything in manhattan is walkable. It's gonna be a long walk doe, especially in the frigid cold.

IMHO Terminal 5 has the distinction of being the most shitty located venue in the the city in terms of convenience. I'd take the train and just hop in a Cab or Uber Pool it from Penn. I can't imagine the ride costing more than $10 if that.

looks like the silent barn is gonna end up closing yet again!!

2017 was another tough years for small/DIY venues in NYC, with Shea Stadium, Don Pedro and more closing for good. Hanging in there is Bushwick’s venue/community center Silent Barn, which opened its Bushwick location in 2013 but is in desperate need of a cash influx to survive into 2018. As The Village Voice reports, Silent Barn is currently holding a crowdfunding drive with a goal of $25,000 and say that if they don’t raise $20,000 by January 1 it will have to “begin planning to shut down this iteration of the project”:

“It’s like we’re on a boat going down a river, and my job as the financial manager is to tell people, ‘Hey, there’s a waterfall coming up, we need to all get together and paddle,’ ” Silent Barn financial manager Jordan Michael Iannucci said over the phone last week. “This is the first time where it’s like, we can see the waterfall, we can hear the water, [and] we know there are rocks under it.”…

…“When we opened our place, we had basically about a month of cash on hand, maximum, at any given moment,” said Joe Ahearn, one of the original Silent Barn’s longtime residents and a founder of the new space, when the Voice spoke to him over the phone on Christmas Eve. “It’s basically just gotten harder every day since then.”

Unforeseen circumstances, like the fire and bureaucratic problems that delayed the venue’s new liquor license, ate into this already thin cash reserve. “We are [now] operating at less-than-zero-days-to-live margin,” Ahearn said. The collective expected a loss of $28,000 for 2017; at the end of the year, the actual figure is looking closer to $69,000.

As of this posting, Silent Barn’s fundraising is at $11,481. You can contribute by becoming a monthly or yearly Silent Barn member.

for those wrens fans out there, you should know that the charles bissell's "solo" set opening up for cymbals eat guitars at the bowery ballroom tonight will not only be him playing a few songs off the new record but a bunch of older wrens songs with cymbals as his full backing band. pretty cool

considering he's only played about 10 gigs in ny/nj in the past decade, take this shot to see him if yr around!

as per charles:
So here’re the specifics of the closest I’ve come to a tour in 8 or 9 years:
Playing three shows opening up solo for Cymbals Eat Guitars, playing a few of these new long-belabored jams from the nearly-done record, a cover or two, maybe a holiday chestnut, maybe an audience participation number…

But cooler, the 2nd half of my ‘solo’ set is me doing wrens songs w/ Joe and Cymbals Eat Guitars as the backing band (..accompanying band? Co-band..?). We rehearsed it last week in Philadelphia and it was honestly a hoot. And an honor.

Joe named it Wrenses Alien, which I only wish I’d thought of.

So if you’re in/near Boston/New York/New Jersey (tomorrow, the 28th, through Sat., the 30th, respectively), come on down. It’d be nice to see you.

Thurs., 12/28, Boston at Great Scott
Fri., 12/29, NYC at the Bowery Ballroom
Sat., 12/30, Teaneck, NJ at the Debonair Music Hall
