July News! 


Every once in awhile I get to have an AMAZING day, the kind where everything just comes together.  The pic above is from the beach in Far Rockaway, where I recently shot a video for my next BIG project that I'll be announcing more about this fall.  It was a perfect night:  an incredible sunset, beautiful weather, a homemade superhero outfit (yes I'm wearing a cape), and really great friends.  I kept looking up at the sky and thinking, "thank you."   Pictured are my film crew/besties Ryan and Ally, and my most amazing, helpful, fun, Street Team captains Amanda and MJ--they help me with everything from selling merch at all of my shows to carrying fake pianos into the woods to help me shoot my music video.  (If you missed that video, it's here.  Amanda, you're a Godsend!).  I'm so, so grateful for the incredible people that have been put in my life because of this crazy path I chose--including all of YOU, too.  Every single one of you who comes to my shows or gets involved in any way is such a gift in my life.  THANK YOU.  

Birthday Show Friday 7/31!
Oh and don't forget too, I'm having a BIRTHDAY HOUSE PARTY SHOW in Farmingdale, NY on July 31st!  Since it's at a house, I'm asking that you email me for the address if you'd like to come--this way I know how much food to get!  Some of my FAVORITE bands are going to dear friend Sean Thomas' band Modern Trigger is soooo good I can't stand it, and Killer Wails who rock my socks and feature my bass player KeriAnn Marie, who is a goddess of the bass guitar.  We will also be having an OPEN MIC for those of you who want to sing, read poetry, dance...whatever. :-)

I love you guys!
See you all soon!!

Nico Padden & Friends Show @ Beery's

I'll be playing in an all female-fronted band night at Mr. Beery's in Bethpage on Saturday, March 14th.  This is a 21+ show, cover's $5, and it will be featuring some bands fronted by women that I admire and respect.  It should be a great time, and I'll definitely be pulling out some Irish drinking tunes since it's St. Paddy's Day weekend.  Come dressed in green!
