  • Ian Axel at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We’ve seen Ian Axel perform nine times prior to last night. The very first time was at Rockwood Music Hall, on October 23rd 2009. He blew us away. As hard as it is to imagine, he’s never disappointed us, even with a wide variety of venues and setups (solo, different band members, etc.). […]

  • Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller at Town Hall

    Many (most?) of our favorite performers (superstars and up-and-comers alike!) count Patty Griffin among their hero singer/songwriters. This includes Girlyman, whose cover of Patty’s Mary is haunting and stunning. We are familiar with many of her songs mostly because our favorites play them (both covers and cuts).

  • Alex Wong and Adam Levy at Rockwood

    Last night was a real treat for us. We got to see one of our favorite musicians perform his first solo show. We also caught the set before his, which was wonderful, and I’ll cover that as well. Alex Wong is an incredible talent, something I repeat very often (well deserved repetition). We […]

  • Happy Birthday Lois
