Month: February 2012

  • The Vanity Belles at Arlene’s Grocery Final Residency Show

    The Vanity Belles (Carrie Welling and Jessi Rae Waltz) finished up their month-long residency at Arlene’s Grocery with a bang! It was crowded (mobbed actually), it was rockin’, it was awesome. If you missed it, I feel sorry for you (seriously). This was the last of four consecutive Monday performances throughout February. We […]

  • The Stone Lonesome at Rockwood Music Hall

    The Stone Lonesome headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. I had it on the calendar for a while, but I was sure we couldn’t make it. In fact, last Monday, I saw Zach Jones (1/2 of The Stone Lonesome) when he drummed for The Vanity Belles and I told him […]

  • The Big Apple Singers at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    The Big Apple Singers typically book really late shows at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. Actually, they’re really early, as in midnight. That was the case last night. We planned to attend nonetheless, because it’s simply been way too long since we’ve seen Greg Mayo (one of the four members of the band) […]

  • Patryk Larney at Rockwood Music Hall

    Patryk Larney was on at 11pm last night at Rockwood Music Hall. A bit later than we like to be out, but there are a number of people who we’d make the effort for and Patryk is most definitely on that list. Add every single one of his band members and the decision […]

  • Carley Tanchon at Rockwood Music Hall

    Carley Tanchon headlined Rockwood Music Hall last night. We’ve seen Carley perform three full sets, plus two shows as a background vocalist. Two of the full sets were solo acoustic and one was a full band CD Release show. Last night was a full band show, giving me an even chance to rate […]

  • Rebecca Pidgeon at Rockwood Music Hall

    Rebecca Pidgeon headlined Rockwood Music Hall last night. I admit (sheepishly, after the fact) that I never heard of Rebecca Pidgeon. How we ended up at her set will be revealed after I tell you how fantastic she (and it) was. Rebecca has a phenomenal voice. She can sing softly (thankfully, the really […]

  • Barnaby Bright at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Barnaby Bright played Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. We’ve only seen Barnaby Bright (BB) once (just over a year ago), though we’ve seen Nathan and Becky Bliss (the husband and wife team that comprise BB) individually support John Schmitt and Allie Moss. Nathan and Becky are each so talented on their […]

  • The Vanity Belles at Arlene’s Grocery

    The Vanity Belles have a month-long residency at Arlene’s Grocery, every Monday at 8pm in February. We missed the first two and expected to miss last night as well. I was sick the last two weeks of January and we’ve been gone all of February. We cut our trip short by a few […]
