  • Wicked Season

    The title that sprang to mind was Season of the Witch(es). While clever (at least to me), given our recent cluster of attendances, I couldn’t bring myself to drop Wicked from the title. Yes, we seem to be knee deep in Wicked Season. Yesterday we went for our 13th time. If only we […]

  • New York’s Finest Police Tribute at Arlene’s Grocery

    I’m the optimal age to have been a major fan of The Police. I wasn’t, not because I didn’t care for their music, it’s just one of those things. I never owned any of their CDs and never saw them perform. Through osmosis, I am obviously familiar with a number of their hits, […]

  • Matt Cusson at Rockwood Music Hall

    Matt Cusson played his first ever show at Rockwood Music Hall last night. I’m sure it won’t be his last. We hadn’t heard of him before, though after reading about him, I’m surprised at that. Thankfully, we have friends with excellent taste in music (in fact, we met them over a shared table […]

  • Happy Ending Music and Reading Series at Joe’s Pub

    Since the remodel, we seem to be racking up the frequent flyer miles at Joe’s Pub. We were back there again last night for something different than our usual fare. The Happy Ending Music and Reading Series is founded, curated, hosted and produced by Amanda Stern. It’s been going on for a while […]

  • Rebecca Haviland at Arlene’s Grocery

    Have I mentioned how much we love Rebecca Haviland before? If you don’t know the answer to that question, then welcome to this space, clearly you’re a first-timer. It’s been roughly six weeks since we’ve seen Rebecca perform. That’s bad enough, but she had a few shows in between that we couldn’t attend, […]

  • Chicks With Dip Joni Mitchell Blue Tribute at Christopher Street Coffeehouse

    Chicks With Dip is a songwriter circle consisting of extremely talented female singer/songwriters. A few of them co-founded a coffeehouse series at the St. John’s Lutheran Christopher Street Church. How they came up with the name Christopher Street Coffeehouse is still a mystery. In addition to providing incredible music on a regular (pretty […]

  • Sierra Noble and Michael Sackler-Berner at Joe’s Pub

    Sierra Noble was opening for Michael Sackler-Berner at Joe’s Pub last night. We weren’t supposed to be in NYC. After missing Sierra last week, when she played a co-bill with Rebecca Haviland, we decided that we had to get our priorities straight. We cut our trip short and returned in time to attend […]
