Pharmacy and Gardens toast Anton Swords new release "City of Oblivion"

Thursday, February 25, 2010
258 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
22:45       Free
Anton Sword has just released a new CD titled "City of Oblivion," with Kristofer Widholm on guitar. As a tribute to Anton's work, Pharmacy and Gardens will play a dash of songs just before his set, and will also play guitar with his band. Info follows: It's 2 am and I just decided to dare 3 rickety songs to come alive as an aperitif, if you will, for Anton Swords record release party at Zebulon, Thursday, Feb 25. I'll probably be foaming at the mouth around 10:50pm. I will also be playing guitar-sideman for Anton's band. Please join in celebrating Anton's fastidious, misanthropic, and lovely music. There are some great songs on this album! Also on the bill is the magnetic Kristin Mueller and the quizzical chamber pop of The Snow (do not miss David Spinley on clarinet. Wow!) Info: Who & When: 9 pm Kristin Mueller 10 pm The Snow 11 pm Anton Sword & The We OursÃ

Pharmacy & Gardens at The Small Beast

Monday, November 30, 2009
The Delancey
168 Delancey St., New York, NY
20:30       Free

Pharmacy & Gardens will be performing a short and sweet set Monday night at The Small Beast.

After 5 years of continental living, a quasi-original incarnation of Dana Schechter's uniquely wonderful band makes it's only New York appearance at the Small Beast. Those of you who remember need no introduction. For the rest of you, I could write a book, but just come hear for yourselves on Monday. I couldn't think of two more apt artists to make a Bee & Flower sandwich than Pharmacy & Gardens and Lynn Wright, doing double duty as B & F's guitarist and fronting his own terrific combo. And we might even have an extra super special surprise guest. See you monday. With love... Paul Wallfisch

SMALL BEAST #45 MONDAY, NOV. 30 The Delancey
Music from 8:00! NO COVER 2 for 1 drinks all night

8:00 PHARMACY & GARDENS the moniker chosen by ex-Morix Optimo mastermind Kristofer Widholm as his solo alias. As the name implies, his rich vocals and evocative guitar playing could inspire healing and growth...

8:45 PAUL WALLFISCH ...will not be playing the accordion at this show. But here he is, doing it in Cologne, Germany.

9:15 AND THE WIREMEN Somehow both etherially delicate and provocatively course, ex James Hall axe slinger Lynn Wright's songs, abetted by the magnificent trumpet playing of Paul Watson, (Sparklehorse), are a unique treat.

10:15 BEE & FLOWER Having relocated from New York to Berlin, Bee and Flower's second album sees the band benefiting from the change of scene. Reminiscent at times of Low and Cat Power, but more European than either, the most obvious reference point for the band now is Nico. Dana Schechterâ

Melorex, Pretendo and Who?

Saturday, February 10, 2007
East River Bar
97 South 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY
Come see Melorex this thursday at East river bar in Williamsburg. What's Melorex, you ask? MELOREX is the portmanteau name for the smooshing together of "MELOMANE' + 'MOREX OPTIMO' both in name and setlist. This came about when members of both bands were asked to join visual artist Christoph Draeger to re-create the epic performance of the Who's "My Generation" as part of an art installation in Lyons, France. They decided to take the opportunity to learn each other's songs, and the result is Melorex. Come see their trial run before they go to Lyon to wow the kids. Who? will end the night. 10PM - Pretendo 11PM - Melorex 11:55PM - WHO?
