  • The Nutcracker at Richmond CenterStage

    I was supposed to be at work all day yesterday. If you promise not to tell anyone that could get me in trouble, I’ll tell you what I did after leaving the office at 10:15am (I was in at 7am, so I got some things done). Our friends in Richmond bought six tickets […]

  • Alex Berger at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We waited nearly a year for the pleasure of seeing Alex Berger perform live again. We had to console ourselves by listening to his wonderful CD, Snow Globe. It’s great, but it’s not quite the same as seeing Alex live. Last night was his first time performing at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. […]

  • Artemis Chamber Ensemble at Holy Family Church

    We were supposed to be gone yesterday morning. When we heard about two shows we pushed our plans back by two days. The first of those shows was yesterday. The Artemis Chamber Ensemble had another show at Holy Family Church in New Rochelle. One of the tenets of Artemis is to have a […]

  • Alex Wong at Rockwood Music Hall

    Alex Wong played a solo set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. Usually, that means a lot of guests (and this show was similarly teased). But last night was nearly purely solo, with the exception of Alex Berger (visiting here from the UK) joining on two songs. If you were there, but didn’t […]

  • Greg Holden at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We’ve seen Greg Holden perform three full sets over the past year and sing as a guest at a few other shows. He’s grown on me each time I’ve seen him. Last night was his last show of 2010, at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. It was scheduled for 10:30pm so we were […]

  • Ian Axel and Rachel Platten at Mercury Lounge

    When this show was announced in October, we instantly grabbed four tickets (the maximum that Mercury Lounge sells, online or in person!). Since then, we’ve been waiting impatiently for the show to start. The last time we saw Ian Axel perform was a single song guest appearance on 9/22/2010. Before that, it was […]

  • Jess and Jesse Terry Wedding

    Yesterday’s post ended with: “Congratulations to Jesse and Jess as your new life together begins in a few hours!” This is the sequel to that post, sharing some memories from an absolutely gorgeous wedding ceremony that we were honored to be invited to. Just like the night before, things weren’t exactly hitch-less as […]

  • Jesse Terry at The Bitter End

    What do you do the night before you get married? Have a wild bachelor party? Meditate on the changes your life is about to experience? Not if you’re Jesse Terry, a wonderful singer/songwriter who hails from Nashville. You give your family, friends and fans a chance to celebrate with you. Jesse Terry played […]

  • Bess Rogers and Lelia Broussard at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Scratch another one off my music bucket list, Bess Rogers. We’ve been aware of her for a long time, having seen her husband, Chris Kuffner perform at least a dozen times. Even though we were hoping to stay in last night and catch up on some much-needed rest, when I found out Bess […]
