  • Breaking Social Networking Interconnections

    Many (most?) people post updates to multiple Social Networks. Rather than hand-picking which networks get which updates, most of the multi-network types (nearly all?) post the identical update to all networks, simultaneously, automatically. There are many ways to do that, including services specifically meant to accomplish that (Ping.fm, FriendFeed, etc.), or multi-protocol clients […]

  • Vienna Teng, Alex Wong and Joey Ryan at Highline Ballroom

    Last night was very special on many levels. At the top of the list was seeing Vienna Teng perform in NYC (at the Highline Ballroom) for the last time in a while (she’s off to grad school later this month!). Even though Vienna tours the US and Europe regularly, we have come to […]

  • Next Stop, Nightmare at ABC No Rio

    Every night there are a seemingly infinite number of things to do in NYC. Of course, most of those events are hard to discover, or evaluate in advance. Lois and I go to Broadway shows on occasion (always with friends), but we don’t typically seek out plays. We spend most of our free […]

  • ambeR Rubarth and Adam Levy at 55 Bar

    ambeR Rubarth and Adam Levy are doing a residency at 55 Bar, performing there at 7pm every Wednesday in August. Of their four appearances, the only one that we could attend was last night, and we are both very glad we got to see them (the rest of you still have two more […]

  • Wicked Still Rules

    Having previously seen Wicked eight times, it generally takes an external event to get us to go again. Of course, we are constantly on the lookout for such events, so it’s not hard to get us to go. 🙂 A few weeks ago, friends of ours mentioned that seeing Wicked was high on […]

  • Angel Band at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Prior to last night, we’ve seen Angel Band perform three times. The last one was over two years ago and was a CD Release Party at Joe’s Pub, covered in this post. Last night was also a CD Release party for their new album, Bless My Sole, this time at Rockwood Music Hall […]

  • The Persuasions at BB King

    Lois and I love a cappella. We love harmony in all forms and it doesn’t get purer than a cappella. When we each saw that The Persuasions were performing at BB King (we both get the weekly email newsletter) we were interested in going (we’ve never seen them). A friend of ours was […]

  • The Paper Raincoat at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Q: What word describes the following situation? You’re old and exhausted and one of your favorite bands schedules a show at 6pm! A: Perfect! 🙂 That’s exactly what happened last night. The Paper Raincoat played a show at 6pm at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. The only worry in our minds (possibly in […]
