We don’t have a set schedule yet, but starting in March we will be doing one Sunday night per month, three sets each night at Threes. We can’t thank Cherie and the fine folks at the venue enough for making the space available to us, and giving us a new place to host the series. Huge props to everyone who performed and rocked it this past Sunday night–and an equally huge thanks to all of the friends and fans of the series who came out to support. Looking forward to the next one! As of now here are our Sundays coming up:

OOYH BK Returns on January 25 @ Threes Brewing!

We are very excited to have been given a chance to present Out of Your Head at Threes Brewing on Sunday January 25.  Threes Brewing is a great new bar in Gowanus with the same owners as Sycamore, which is my favorite neighborhood bar in Ditmas Park. They are very into creative music and will be booking a lot of music in the upcoming months. We’re giving OOYH BK a trial run there, and if it goes well for everyone I hope to continue it there in some capacity. More on that forthcoming! For now, please hold January 25 in your calendars and I hope to see you at our next installment. Lineup coming very soon–it’s going to be a good one.

Search & Restore on OOYH

The great NY-based website Search & Restore did a nice interview with Adam about the Summer 2014 return of OOYH Brooklyn. Unfortunately with Douglass Street Music Collective stopping all public shows we’re once again looking for a new home for the series. Any leads on that please feel free to get in touch with Adam directly. Here is the whole interview by Sam Weinberg:

We’re Back–Summer 2014 Dates

Hello Friends of OOYH BK!

Some exciting, and some sad news simultaneously. I have been waiting for membership to come through to the Douglass Street Music Collective so that I could start the series back up regularly in Brooklyn. I finally got the membership, booked a few shows, and sadly DSMC needs to cease having shows after August 31 of this year. Major bummer to be losing one of my favorite performance spaces in Brooklyn. We’re hopeful that we’ll be able to relocate the space and continue with shows, but that will be a little bit down the road.

The good news–I have three OOYH BK dates on the books for Summer 2014. I’ll be hosting shows at DSMC on Monday July 14, Monday July 28, and Sunday August 24. Updates on personnel for the last two dates, but I’ve listed the lineup below for July 14. All shows will be three sets from 9pm until midnight. Excited to be back, even if for just a little while!

OOYH BK Summer Hiatus

Hey Friends, and thanks for checking in! I just wanted to write a quick note for two reasons. One is as a HUGE thank you to everyone who has put something into Out of Your Head BK for the past year and a half (be it playing, or attending, or hosting, or co-curating, or for being Frank the Dog) We’ve had an awesome run at Freddy’s Bar, and are thankful for everything they’ve done for us. It was a year and a half of seriously inspiring concerts for me. And an extra huge thanks to Josh Sinton, Jesse Stacken, and Dustin Carlson for sharing in the duties of being a co-curator…making that process extra fun for me.

The other reason for this post is to announce that we will be going on a bit of a necessary hiatus for the summertime. The reasons for this are plentiful, and I feel like it is a great time to take a bit of a breather as many people leave town for the hot months. We are planning to return full force and better than ever next Fall. I’m hoping to finally archive some of the concerts on the website, and update the media section. I also plan to have live streaming of the shows when we come back, so you don’t have to be in Brooklyn to enjoy what we’re doing. All that is coming soon. Definitely watch this space for updates, and I can’t thank everyone enough for the support and love the series had received thus far!

Full OOYH BK Schedule for Jan/Feb/March/April!!!!

Here it is! The full schedule for the next four months of Out of Your Head Brooklyn. I had a great time making these lineups with Jesse Stacken, who offered an entirely fresh perspective on combining these musicians in new and interesting ways! Can’t wait to hear this music!!!

As I was typing the schedule out I also realized that February 17 will be our One Year Anniversary Show! We usually do something special for anniversaries, but this slipped my mind until now. Currently, at the very least, it is two AMAZING bands on the schedule, as well as being Danny Gouker’s birthday. Both of these are great things…maybe we’ll find something else to help celebrate as well. But for sure come out and we’ll throw a huge party! And, as always, these dates are all on Sunday nights (first and third of every month) at Freddy’s Bar (627 5th Ave, South Slope BK). Always a brand new band, all improvised, and never a cover. Hope to see you out!
