This Sunday is an awesome show I put together @ @sidewalknyc (94 Ave A) — free admission w/ purchase of a food/drink item. Starts @ 7, goes till 11. Flyer by Janna Pelle! #cannonballism #cannonballstatman #livemusic #flyer #dark #blackout #night #nyc
I am one of these 12 musicians. I will play the longest single song known to man. You should come to this.
Well, I had my last day of regular class today, an Ethics lecture with the legendary, highly knowledgeable, and ever-so-sweet Thomas Nagel, who is sans hyperbole perhaps the greatest living philosopher. I’m still a little star-struck in his class. This being the last lecture, wrapping things up as neatly as possible for an undergrad philosophy course, it ran a little long and his last words to the class were, simply, “Well, looks like there’s no time for discussion. So long.”
The class applauded thunderously.
I’m not sure why but as I was leaving NYU’s Silver Center this song from Pal Joey started boppin’ around my brain, and I began humming it, then singing it outright to myself, and felt compelled to find a piano and hammer out the tune as best as I could remember.
And so begins, with the last scheduled lecture of the semester as two weeks of finals loom ahead, the second installment of my impromptu-iPhone-piano-covers-to-avoid-work series, Procrasti-Covers.
So apparently I’m going to be on the Chris Gethard show tomorrow, dancing around in a panda hat, dressed in black & white, and potentially playing synthesizer? (With/for the band Clinical Trials)
I met Rob Malone a couple weeks ago when he happened to sit next to me at a movie theatre near NYU to see Springbreakers, and now, totally unrelated to that happening, this is happening… though as I discussed with him I suppose my showing up sort of dashes my hopes of one day being “Random Barton,” doesn’t it?
…unless I fully conceal my identity and go full-panda-head. Chris Gethard, get ready for PANDA BARTON!!!!!!
If you’re in Manhattan, come out to Bareburger, 2nd floor, 2nd ave & 5th st!
This is MARROWOLF (their debut show!) and I go on last in the evening… It would be good to see you!
New 70-minute movie and accompanying 17-track live album of Cannonball Statman performances from the past year, just released today! Watch the movie and listen to the album for free online, or buy a download of both combined for $5 from BandCamp if you want. Check it out!
I am on this, being a panda, synth-player, and washboardist!
It is long!
It is out today!
It is not an April Fools’ joke!
& it will still exist tomorrow, when music is “supposed” to come out (Tuesday)
Practicing my keyboard & synth parts for the Solid Goold show tonight at Webster Hall (from several days ago — I’ve got it down now!)
juliashootsfilm replied to your photo: I find it funny that this is rhe second time I’ve…

Young Boys - Love Hits
I wanted to share the white-washed 11+ minute album closer on this new New York post-punk band’s new record, but I just kept coming back to the single. Trust, tho, that the whole collection is best listened to at top volume. Be sure to let that last track wash over your eardrums until the very last drop.
This cut off the album made me a fan. I’ll be there at Glasslands.
Also, the album closer is awesome… Wish I had the time to devote to listening to it all now but gotta get back to practicing my synth parts for my SHOW AT WEBSTER HALL FEBRUARY 28.
Wait, that’s tomorrow. AHHHH CURLING UP INTO POST-PUNK FETAL PANIC BALL
featuring the Third North Singers.
I have a SoundCloud.
Zebulon closed down less than 3 months after How Music Works was published. David Byrne knows what he’s talking about.
It really is a shame, with spaces like that. I also really miss the Silent Barn…. they closed down because of a robbery and put on shows here and there these days.
Also I think Sidewalk falls into this category and I am so happy it’s still around and expanded and that I have the privilege of playing on the same stage where The Moldy Peaches / Kimya Dawson / Adam Green, et al. started out. And of course Jeffrey Lewis. I could go on…
Did this just now in the Third North piano room. Incredibly rough, poorly recorded, exclusively for all you lovely Tumblr friends. Certainly not going to put this up on SoundCloud, even though my “Procrasti-Covers” series there is pretty crappy… thinking of deleting all that now that I’m writing/recording/being serious again…
I feel like I need a name as an umbrella for the drips and drabs of solo material I release that isn’t part of The Medicine or some other band project, or the serious yet-to-be-announced-and-finalized new band project I have on the horizon.
I used to go by “That Guy,” which I think it still says on my SoundCloud. I submitted with that name to SongFight.org now and then. I also submitted there with the pseudonym Duderonymus Bosch, which is where my blog title came from. I also use T. G. Bartoni for some things… it’s a childhood nickname. Short for “The Great Bartoni.” After seeing Matt Pond in person I kinda wanna be barton lewis NY but that wouldn’t really work.
