5 Things You Need to Know—2/28/20

We’re back with 5 things you need to know for February 28, 2020. 

#1—Jam Just Happened on March 20! Scott Metzger will be leading another supergroup on March 20 at Nublu in New York City. This is another full evening of improv with people who have not played together before. The partial lineup right now includes Metzger, Adam Chase from Jazz is Phish, John Kimock from Mike Gordon Band, and Andy Hess, who has played with John Scofield and many others. Get tickets today. And if you missed the first one, you can watch it here

#2—Charlie Hunter on JamBase Podcast. On a new episode of the JamBase Podcast, Charlie Hunter talks “Musical Mentors” with Scott Bernstein. You can hear all about Charlie’s mentors and some of his work as well. Like all Osiris podcasts, you can stream the episode directly on the JamBase site that’s linked here

#3—Brooklyn Comes Alive on March 21! Another live event we need to tell you about is Brooklyn Comes Alive, March 21. It’ll be a day of collaborations and supergroups, including Oteil and Friends, Birds of a Feather (featuring members of Goose and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong), The Motet, Robert Randolph, and more. All at a really cool venue called the Avant Gardner in Brooklyn. 

#4—The Hot New Way to Promote Your Album: Make a Podcast About It. We wanted to share an article from our friend Cherie Hu, who writes for Billboard and does the Water & Music newsletter and podcast. She makes the case that the blending of the music and podcast worlds are creating more opportunities for artists, and for podcasters—and we’re here for that! 

#5—Trampled by Turtles on Inside the Musician’s Brain. Host Chris Pandolfi talks with Dave Simonett, the lead singer and primary songwriter for Trampled by Turtles. He and Chris discuss songwriting, music highlights, and more. And on this episode, we leave you with some live Stringdusters tunes, which are from Seattle, January 18, 2020. You can stream the whole show here
