  • A Wicked Christmas Weekend

    We love so many people that we consider family. However, there are a few full families that are truly our extended family in every possible way. One of those families lives in Leesburg, VA. They (parents plus three children) were supposed to spend Thanksgiving with us in NYC. Unfortunately, life intervened and they […]

  • Patryk Larney at Rockwood Music Hall

    I so thoroughly enjoyed my first Patryk Larney show (also at Rockwood Music Hall) that I was looking forward to seeing him again. Having an 11pm start time isn’t conducive, so I didn’t think we’d make it out last night. When our plans changed for the evening due to the set before Patryk […]

  • Martin Rivas at Rockwood Music Hall

    We weren’t going to go out for any shows last night. In fact, we had dinner plans with friends. Then I saw this tweet: martinrivas Martin Rivas My last NYC show until Summer2012 tonite 10p at Rockwood2. XmasSongs? Requests? WhoKnows?! Not me. @patryklarney at 11 @nightmareriver at 12 Wait, 5+ months of no […]

  • Alex Liang Wong at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Alex Wong is someone I’ve written about so many times. Starting with this post, I’m going to do my best to never write about him again. The reason? Too many darned Alex Wong’s running around getting famous on the Internet. In order to stake out a defined spot, our Alex has chosen to […]

  • Alex Berger at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Alex Berger lives in London. That’s sad enough (for us, not necessarily for him), but the really sad part is that we get to see him perform rather infrequently. When he’s in town, and schedules a show, it’s a must-see event. Last night was the night! From the first time we saw Alex […]

  • Backscratch XVII at Rockwood Music Hall

    Last night we attended the early show at Joe’s Pub. Under normal circumstances, we would have run home after the show. These were not normal circumstances. Over at Rockwood Music Hall, timed perfectly for us, was Backscratch XVII. That would have been more than enough to get us to stay out for another […]

  • Joey and Rory at Joe’s Pub

    We’re both fans of Country Music in general and of Joey and Rory specifically. We’ve never seen them perform live before last night. We love Joe’s Pub, including the wonderful remodel. It is a great place for Country acts, consistently drawing audiences that are starved for that sound in NYC. This was Rory […]

  • A Holiday Benefit #5 at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Last week I scanned the Rockwood Music Hall website for this week’s shows. There was a show listed for last night simply labeled: “A Holiday Benefit”. The performers were a mixture of our favorite who’s who, plus a couple of groups we have wanted to see for a while, but scheduling has gotten […]

  • Ximena Sarinana and Graffiti6 at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We’ve seen Ximena Sarinana perform a number of times. We’re big fans. Considering that she lives in LA, we decided to cut a business trip short to return to NYC to catch her show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night (who knows when the opportunities will present themselves!). Ximena has two […]

  • Bri Arden at Rockwood Music Hall

    I need no extra incentives to attend a Bri Arden show, especially at Rockwood Music Hall. But, if you’re going to entice me, I’m paying attention. Here are a few tweets that Bri unleashed in the past few days (in order): BriArden Bri Arden Guys— show this Sat, 9pm at Rockwood. Super excited. […]
