  • Mike and Ruthy with Aoife O’Donovan at Joe’s Pub

    Mike and Ruthy headlined a show at Joe’s Pub last night. I hadn’t heard of them (by that name) but I was interested in the show because I had just recently discovered the opener, Aoife O’Donovan. When I checked out Mike and Ruthy, I liked what I heard, so that made the decision […]

  • The Third Wheel Band CD Release at Rodeo Bar

    The Third Wheel Band headlined Rodeo Bar last night. Beyond a normal headlining show, it was their CD Release (2nd one) for Family Album. Eleven months ago we accidentally caught half of their set at Rockwood Music Hall. Well, hearing even one note was accidental, catching half the set was because we couldn’t […]

  • Girlyman with Edie Carey at City Winery

    Girlyman headlined City Winery last night. The minute the show was announced we snagged 15 tickets radiating out from center stage to the first aisle. Girlyman in NYC or VA == Party in our household. Since we accidentally discovered them in August 2007, they have had no trouble holding on to the top […]

  • Greg Mayo Band Levon Helm Tribute at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Greg Mayo Band headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. The show was on opposite two others that I would gladly have attended, but a week ago I decided that one can’t have enough Greg Mayo in their lives, so with apologies to the others, I was going to […]

  • The Grascals at Emelin Theatre

    The Grascals headlined a show at Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck, NY last night. When they introduced the band, it turned out they weren’t simply headlining a random show. Emelin had been hosting a Bluegrass series and The Grascals were the final act of this year’s series. I’m sorry we were unaware of the […]

  • Apollo Run Acoustic Show at Rockwood Music Hall

    Apollo Run headlined a special acoustic show at Rockwood Music Hall last night. I characterized it as special (that’s not how they billed it), because it gave me a chance to evaluate their core musical proposition relatively quickly after my first encounter with them three weeks ago. In that first show, I had […]

  • Buddy Mondlock at Rockwood Music Hall

    Buddy Mondlock headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. I am slightly embarrassed that I had never heard of Buddy. I was intending to see him anyway, because I was at Rockwood to see the set before and the set after him. The set before was Jesse Terry, and Jesse sent […]

  • Jesse Terry at Rockwood Music Hall

    Jesse Terry headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. Most of the times that we’ve seen Jesse he’s performed solo. The last two times he’s been refining a group sound. First he connected with Greg Mayo for a duo show, where Greg played piano on some numbers and guitar on others, […]

  • Jay Stolar at Rockwood Music Hall

    Jay Stolar headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall. That, in itself, is not news. Jay headlines there every Thursday, but, at 1am, which we have yet to keep ourselves awake for. Yesterday, he kicked off the evening with the first set, at 6pm. For us, that’s as good as it gets. For […]

  • Tony Maceli Full Vinyl Tribute to Yacht Rock at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Tony Maceli organized and hosted another Full Vinyl show last night at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. I opened my post about the previous show with the following: Tony Maceli is one of the top bass players in the NYC indie music scene. Some months ago, he started organizing a regular mega-show called […]
