  • ambeR Rubarth and Adam Levy at 55 Bar

    ambeR Rubarth and Adam Levy are doing a residency at 55 Bar, performing there at 7pm every Wednesday in August. Of their four appearances, the only one that we could attend was last night, and we are both very glad we got to see them (the rest of you still have two more […]

  • Wicked Still Rules

    Having previously seen Wicked eight times, it generally takes an external event to get us to go again. Of course, we are constantly on the lookout for such events, so it’s not hard to get us to go. 🙂 A few weeks ago, friends of ours mentioned that seeing Wicked was high on […]

  • Angel Band at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Prior to last night, we’ve seen Angel Band perform three times. The last one was over two years ago and was a CD Release Party at Joe’s Pub, covered in this post. Last night was also a CD Release party for their new album, Bless My Sole, this time at Rockwood Music Hall […]

  • The Persuasions at BB King

    Lois and I love a cappella. We love harmony in all forms and it doesn’t get purer than a cappella. When we each saw that The Persuasions were performing at BB King (we both get the weekly email newsletter) we were interested in going (we’ve never seen them). A friend of ours was […]

  • The Paper Raincoat at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Q: What word describes the following situation? You’re old and exhausted and one of your favorite bands schedules a show at 6pm! A: Perfect! 🙂 That’s exactly what happened last night. The Paper Raincoat played a show at 6pm at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2. The only worry in our minds (possibly in […]

  • Martin Rivas, Vienna Teng and ambeR Rubarth at City Winery

    In January, City Winery hosted three shows to benefit the Haiti earthquake disaster. We attended one of those shows and I covered it in this post. They have repeated that generosity this week, hosting three shows to benefit those affected by the Gulf Coast Oil Spill. All proceeds went to the Gulf Restoration […]

  • Delta Rae at Rockwood Music Hall

    The first time I heard the name Delta Rae was on April 2nd 2010, in an email from a good friend. He forwarded a note from a friend of his (who I’ve never met). Ever since then, I’ve formed an email friendship with our mutual friend and he’s been promoting Delta Rae to […]

  • Ian Axel and Derek James at Rebel Spirit Music Flux Studios

    Rebel Spirit Music is a wonderful organization. Created to help musicians navigate the new world order, they put on a showcase of talent every month. Many (most/all?) are also benefits for very worthy causes. Last night was for the benefit of Doctors Without Borders, for Haiti relief. While Rebel Spirit Music has done […]

  • Rosi Golan and William Fitzsimmons at Jammin Java

    I’ve waited way too long to catch a Rosi Golan set. I’ve seen her perform a song or two here and there. I’ve even caught a complete set of her performing her new side project The Open Sea with Ari Hest (I can’t wait for the upcoming EP, the two of them are […]

  • Jay Nash, Joey Ryan and Chris Seefried

    Joey Ryan in NYC the same night that we are? No need to wonder what we had planned. 🙂 Joey just completed a UK/Europe tour with Jay Nash. After joining a lot of our favorite artists for a show (way) upstate in NY over the 4th of July weekend, they headed down to […]
