  • Rosi Golan at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We’ve seen Rosi Golan a number of times, but only one was a full set of her own music (at Jammin’ Java, covered in this post). The other times were either a few songs at a benefit (or as a guest), or with Ari Hest, performing as The Open Sea (their side-project together). […]

  • Backscratch 13 at Rockwood Music Hall

    Given how awesome last night was, I’m still a little in shock that I missed the first 12 Backscratch sessions. This was the second time it was held in Rockwood Music Hall. Here’s the concept: gather a bunch of musicians. Each plays three songs. Traditionally (or so the legend goes) each played one […]

Birchmere has poor lighting for compact cameras in general, […]

  • Carley Tanchon at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Our first tiny taste of Carley Tanchon occurred on December 3rd, 2010 when she sang harmony on a song with Jesse Terry at The Bitter End. I give my first impressions of Carley in the last few paragraphs of this post. Since then, we’ve come close to attending a number of Carley’s shows, […]

  • SYREN Modern Dance and Artemis Chamber Ensemble at Baryshnikov Arts Center

    We rarely attend dance recitals (is that the correct word? feels wrong to say “concert” or even “show”). We love music. One of the flexible groups of musicians that we follow is The Artemis Chamber Ensemble. In particular, we are huge fans of Melissa Tong, David Fallo and the conductor and musical director, […]
