  • Jeff Litman at Rockwood Music Hall

    Jeff Litman headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. It was an early set, which we always appreciate and prefer. On the other hand, it coincided with a near-monsoon, so we got soaked coming and going. It’s hard to believe that this was only our second night of music in May. […]

  • Lagond Music School and their Student Performers

    Last night we attended a show at Lagond Music School. I have implored my readers once in the past to contribute to the school, and I’ll do so again, now that I’ve seen first hand what their students are capable of. If you click on the link above, you’ll spot a yellow Donate […]

  • The Thang Band at Lagond Music School

    The Thang Band headlined a set at Lagond Music School last night, closing out a fantastic show. I already posted about the set before them, Greg Mayo Band. I have seen The Thang Band once before and was really looking forward to seeing them again. I was nervous and excited for Lois to […]

  • Greg Mayo Band at Lagond Music School

    Greg Mayo Band headlined a set at Lagond Music School last night. This is one of three posts from last night. I’ll spend more time talking about Lagond Music School (LMS) in the final one. Greg is a teacher at LMS (lucky kids!). LMS puts on shows on a regular basis. I don’t […]

  • 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 […]
