Upcoming events:

Saturday, April 21st, 3pm - 6pm: Joshua Hedley, The Shacks and Chris Stamey
Joshua Hedley brings his first class brand of traditional country music to The Todd-O-Phonic Todd show. His stunning Third Man Records debut, Mr. Jukebox arrives the day before. This live set will be one is for fans of Johnny Paycheck and George Jones. As Joshua states: "Classic country is like a suit. Nothing about a men's suit has changed in like 100 years. Classic never goes out of style. Something can't be a throwback if it's never been out of style." Don't miss Joshua at Union Pool on April 18th.

Todd-O-Phonic Todd goes dream pop by welcoming The Shacks for a live set. This New York based band made a name for themselves with their excellent cover of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect". Now they have released their Big Crown debut album Haze. There are elements of doo-wop and early, pre-Elvis rock in their musicianship. Combine that with a deeply personal songwriting approach and it’s a familiar-yet-fresh sound. Like The Five Keys met Neil Young and cut a record with Brigitte Bardot — but in English.

Chris Stamey interviews Todd-O-Phonic Todd! That's right, former dB Chris will ask Todd questions about their shared experiences surrounding the CBGB's scene, Hoboken and more. This is in celebration of the publication of Chris' autobiography "A Spy In The House Of Loud: New York Songs and Stories" (University Of Texas Press). Earlier in the week Evan Davies will be asking Stamey questions. Chris will be doing readings at Little City Books in Hoboken on April 20th and Rough Trade in Brooklyn on April 21st prior to interviewing Todd.

Saturday, April 28th, 3pm - 6pm: LIVE from the Record Fair- Wreckless Eric, Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, Hurry, Brower and Jonathan Toubin!
Hurry are a Philadelphia trio playing pop music of the highest order. The great new album is called Every Little Thought and features some of the best Philly songwriting since Gamble and Huff!

Jonathan Toubin a.k.a. The New York Night Train has redefined what it means to be a dj. His Soul Claps are the stuff of legend and his Friday night weekly dance party "Shakin' All Over Under Sideways Down" at Home Sweet Home is one of the longest running parties in the Big Apple. Jonathan will offer a teaser of what he will be spinning at Diviera Drive later that evening and at The Monty Hall Soul Clap on Saturday May 5th!

Wreckless Eric! Wreckless Eric burst onto the pop scene with the unforgettable "Whole Wide World" in 1977. And he has been a thorn in the side of polite society ever since! His new album Construction Time & Demolition is another wonderful notch on the belt of a remarkable career. Don't miss him performing live at The WFMU Record Fair or May 3rd at Berlin in The East Village.

"This ain't no country for hipsters or posers. It's real, raw, mean-and-evil-bad-and-nasty bidness that makes an ass-kickin sound mighty fine."- No Depression Sarah Shook and the Disarmers have a sensational new album called Years (Bloodshot Records) and they will be playing some of the stunning songs from it at The WFMU Record Fair and later that evening at Berlin.

and...Brower Nat Brower and his eponymous Brooklyn band of no-counts are introducing the world to a new musical format: POWER GLAM! Featuring members of such stellar combos as Dirty Fences, The Brooklyn Bluebirds, Velveteen Rabbit and Metalleg, Brower's songs have so many hooks you are probably going to get caught on them. Watch out for their Dig! Records full length later this year.

Saturday, May 5th, 3pm - 6pm: The Harlem Gospel Travelers plus Eli Paperboy Reeds meets The High and Mighty Brass Band

You can hear the glorious results on their debut 45 for Colemine Records and also at Monty Hall on Saturday May 5th as part of Jonathan Toubin's Soul Clap.

Eli Paperboy Reed meets The High and Mighty Brass Band- The High and Mighty Brass Band brings to New York the great buoyant sounds of New Orleans. Eli Paperboy Reed brings them the tunes!

Saturday, May 12th, 3pm - 6pm: Sloan
The Canadian pop masters Sloan have just released their twelfth album..called coincidentally enough, 12 (Yep Roc). As Shindig magazine states of the band's music: "Pop songs, the old way, with soaring harmonies and very loud guitars. Love it." Don't miss Sloan live on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show on May 12th and be sure and catch Sloan at The Bowery Ballroom on Thursday May 10th.

Saturday, June 2nd, 3pm - 6pm: Michael Rault
Todd-O-Phonic Todd welcomes as his live musical guest the debonair Michael Rault.
