[NHM] New Haven Music

NHM Fliers Project launched on Facebook

New Haven Music is pleased to announce the creation of the NHM Fliers project. Exclusive to Facebook, the NHM Fliers Project was initiated as a means to both highlight the quality and diversity of local shows as well as to create a visual archive of such performances (not to mention, exhibit the artwork of some truly talented local artists). We feel that this is a fun and unique way to help promote local music while at the same time creating a sense of musical lineage for the local community as a whole. Contributions to the NHM Fliers Project can be made by sending a JPEG formatted image (with flier design credit, if available) to nhm.newhavenmusic@gmail.com or by posting a link and/or image to the NHM Facebook wall (www.facebook.com/newhavenmusic). We’ve starting things off by sharing a number of fliers from our personal collection and from those of our friends; please help us out by contributing more! Thanks!

NHM To Co-Organize Elm City Popfest 2011

Elm City Popfest

Everyone’s favorite New Haven indie-pop festival, Elm City Popfest, will be returning this Fall and NHM will be helping to make it happen! NHM/New Haven Music is happy to announce that we will be teaming up with the CT based February Records to organize another great lineup for this year’s ECPF.  Earlier this year February Records head Dan Goodwin (who was the primary organizer for the first two Elm City Popfests) had some reservations about there even being a third installment, going so far as to state in a January 26, 2011 New Haven Advocate article that ‘it’s not gonna happen.’ After an intervention of sorts to get Goodwin off of the crazy pills, a preliminary meeting was held to identify the logistics involved in making ECPF 3 a reality. Alas the February Records/NHM partnership was born. Obviously at this point the festival is still in its early stages of organization but you can be assured that we hope to match if not exceed the quality of past festivals. Please stay posted to nhmusic.org and februaryrecords.com in the coming months for more information about Elm City Popfest 2011!

New Haven Music

In case you didn’t know already, NHM has a new home: http://www.nhmusic.org. We figured it might be a little easier to remember instead of the looong wordpress address of yore (which is still active in case you have it bookmarked). So yeah, dot org all the way!

NHM Returns

After a much needed break this summer, NHM is currently in the process of reactivating/reanimating. Well over a hundred shows have just been added to the Calendar with more being added everyday. In addition all of the Resource pages are being updated to reflect any changes that have taken place since the Spring. Regular updates will be returning to our Twitter and Facebook feeds as well.

As for the blog itself, new posts will be appearing both on the NHM homepage and through the arrangement that was established earlier this year with CTIndie.com. As stated in a previous post, NHM will now be covering all original music/show in the New Haven area, not just music/shows featuring New Haven area artists. NHM’s previous policy of not including cover/tribute bands or DJ only billings in our coverage still stands however.

Stay posted for more updates soon!

Apologies for the lack of updates here lately. Hopefully more time can be dedicated to this site later this summer. In the meantime, please check out www.ctindie.com for all the latest CT music news. And for those that have commented previously about inabilities to access CTIndie, not sure what the problem is; must be some sort of network permission issue.

NHM Developments & Discourse

:: Begin Transmisson ::

As of June 1st, the NHM Google calendar (see under SHOWS at left) will be listing ALL shows at New Haven area venues. Formerly, the only shows listed were those that included at least one New Haven area band on the billing. All other rules (original music only, no DJ only billings, etc.) still apply.

In addition, NHM will continue to increase its contributions to CTIndie while at the same time decreasing the amount of unique posts on this blog. Thereafter NHM will continue to function primarily as a shows calendar & resource page. Links to blog postings created by NHM on CTIndie (author tag ‘BR’) will also be posted here, both as a means to promote CTIndie and as an informal archive.

Finally, NHM will continue to expand its Twitter presence, primarily as a means of promoting area shows. Please follow us for daily updates.

Additional updates will be posted as they develop.

:: End Transmission ::

Yup, Still Here!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, folks. As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and I’ve been making a WHOLE lot of lemonade lately. After some updating of the calendar, there should be some more posts later this week about upcoming shows and other New Haven related music news. Also, keep an eye out on CTindie for some contributions coming from my way. Alright, now let’s get this party started! Anyone for some lemonade?

NHM + CTIndie?

Yup, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. In the coming weeks and months, NHM will be collaborating with CTIndie (a.k.a. the best source of information on independent music in Connecticut) to help bring you even better coverage of local music happenings both in New Haven and throughout the state. Since NHM and CTIndie’s ideals are pretty much aligned already, it only seems natural that such a collaboration would eventually occur. Please stay posted for more information soon. In the meantime, make sure you stop by CTIndie.com to check out the latest and greatest music news from around the state.

An Aside…

Just spent a bunch of time updating the Google calendar (which you should check out) and some of the resource pages. More updates forthcoming….and a return to blog posts more substantial than this one. Got anything to add? Send messages here: nhm.newhavenmusic@gmail.com. Please DO NOT message the NHM Myspace account; it is rarely checked nowadays. Thank you and carry on…
