Month: September 2010

  • ambeR Rubarth, Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Another night, another awesome show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 (third one in four nights!). I guess there’s nothing left to say. This will officially be my shortest post ever. Why are you still here? OK, just for you, take a peek below this line and I’ll share my experience from last […]

  • The Open Sea and Katie Costello at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    The Open Sea is a duo comprised of Ari Hest and Rosi Golan. They were secretly announced on March 24th, 2010 in a show that we attended. We are fans of both Ari and Rosi separately, but on that night I had an instant love affair with their side project, The Open Sea. […]

  • Vicci Martinez at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    There are two tangible benefits of befriending other music lovers who attend many of the shows we do: They sometimes become real friends, beyond the music, enriching our lives in the process They recommend other groups for us to check out. Due to our first-hand knowledge of their excellent taste in music, we’re […]

  • Martin Rivas and Rachel Platten at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I expected to knock another 1.5 items off my music bucket list. I’m upgrading the .5 to a full point! 😉 Not only did I get to finally see Martin Rivas perform a full set, but it was different than I expected (his adoring fans clearly knew […]

  • Allie Moss, Matthew Perryman Jones and Lauren Zettler at Rockwood Stage 2

    I have no fear of emptying my music bucket list in my lifetime, because I add things to the list at a faster rate than I check them off. Last night, I got to finally remove two items that have been on the list for a while. I can summarize in advance that […]

  • Antje Duvekot and Anne Heaton at House Concert

    Last night we attended our second ever house concert. I can easily see this becoming a habit. I started this blog 3.5 years ago with one goal in mind, document our lives so that as our memory fades (inevitable) we will have a permanent record to reflect back on. A completely unexpected side-benefit […]

  • The Paper Raincoat at Mercury Lounge

    Last night was our second time at Mercury Lounge. We went to see the same group that brought us there the first time, The Paper Raincoat. No matter how many times we see the same groups, each show has it’s own character, making it worth coming out for reasons other than simply supporting […]

  • Proposal to Allow Rooting Android

    Rooting is the process of gaining low-level control of your cell phone’s operating system (I’m only going to discuss Android in this post). It voids your warranty (presumably both from your carrier and the phone manufacturer). That’s fine, perhaps it even should. Still, carriers and phone companies try to actively stop you from […]

  • Jesse Terry and Marjory Lee at a House Concert

    We became aware of how many house concerts there are only a few years ago. There have been a few that we really wanted to attend, but scheduling or illness confounded every one, until last night. Our friends (stay tuned for how we met them at the end) hosted a house concert featuring […]

  • The Downside Risk at Wings Theatre

    Last night we attended the opening of The Downside Risk at the Wings Theatre. Our friend Shannon Black was one of the actors in it, and we enjoyed her performance in Next Stop, Nightmare (written and directed by her husband, Jason Black). This is a limited run show, eight performances through September 11th, […]
