Meg Myers Comes to Music Hall of Williamsburg September 15

Rock singer Meg Myers

Crowned a genuine rock goddess” by the Associated Press, Meg Myers is a singer songwriter with cathartic and healing music. The Tennessee native takes her most recent release, Take Me To The Disco —  a dark-pop effort at reclaiming her painful past through menacing tunes — on the road for her national tour. Hit songs include “Lemon Eyes,” “Desire,” and the newly released “Numb.”

“I came from this grunge, punk-rock background, but I always wanted to write catchy pop songs,” Myers says. “I just didn’t have the technical knowledge to make them work. But I grew up listening to well-crafted songs. I loved Sting, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, James Taylor and Fleetwood Mac. That’s what I was drawn to. I love the simplicity of a great song, I just didn’t realize how hard that was to capture in a recording. That’s why working with Rosen is so great. It was like, ‘Okay, I found this guy I can write songs with and who is really good at turning everything into pop, while still letting me be myself.'”

You can catch Myers at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North 6th Street) on October 1. Doors open at 7:30; concert starts at 8:30 with Adam Jones opening. Tickets are just $20!

Thursday Spotlight: “Dave’s Waves Sonic Luncheonette” Lets The Earth Sing and Ring

For two weekends in September (14-16 and 21-23) the Sunview Luncheonette (221 Nassau Avenue) and experimental composer David First team up to present Dave’s Waves Sonic Luncheonette. Below, David gives an overview of what inspired the project, all its previous incarnations, and what to expect during the two weekends.

Greenpointers: How’d the idea for a sonic restaurant come about?

David First: I was asked to participate in an exhibition in Lier, Belgium in 2002. At the time I had begun mucking around in the area of brainwaves and binaural beats because it was something I had already been doing in my music. The “new age” community likes to make a correlation between the alpha brainwave range and the Schumann resonances, so, of course I found a trove of fascinating, fantastical stuff online that I dove into unconditionally. When I decided I wanted to present this work in Lier, the idea of making it a restaurant where you order these different compositional “dishes” from a menu seemed like a fun way to do it.
