  • 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 […]

  • Jeff Taylor and Dumpster Hunter at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Jeff Taylor and his band Dumpster Hunter headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. Quick aside. The link to Dumpster Hunter currently redirects to the same site as Jeff Taylor’s link. In the future, it might not, so I decided to give both links. That leads me to say […]

  • The Vanity Belles at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    The Vanity Belles are a couple of hard-working ladies. Roughly 28 hours before headlining a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night, they were in Charlotte to sing the National Anthem at The Bobcats NBA game: I’m sure they blew away the large crowd there, but those fans only got to […]

  • Chris Ayer, Rebecca Haviland and Chris Anderson at a House Concert

    Two weeks ago I announced that we were no longer involved with Zope Corporation. That was supposed to mean not driving up and down I95 every month. Apparently, our love of music and friends didn’t get the message. Lindsie Davis runs regular house concerts. We’ve been lucky to have attended three of them […]

  • Bishop Shanahan High School (PA) Choral Ensemble Sings at Trinity Church (NYC)

    The following is a guest post by our very own Lois. Their voices soared in stunning harmonies, filling the Cathedral as worshippers and visitors gathered after the noon mass to hear the Bishop Shanahan High School (BSHS) Choral Ensemble. Under the direction of Chuck Keating, the School’s Music Director, the students sang nine […]

  • Ian and Chad at The Standard Hotel

    Ian and Chad is the new name for what used to be known as Ian Axel (which always featured Chad Vaccarino). Last night they headlined a show at The Standard Hotel (formerly known as The Cooper Square Hotel). They announced it as their first show of 2012. If you accept the notion of […]

  • Elizabeth and the Catapult at The Standard Hotel

    Elizabeth and the Catapult opened a show at The Standard Hotel last night. Well, to be honest, there were no catapult in sight, so let’s also give credit to her as a solo artist, Elizabeth Ziman. She mentioned that last night was her first-ever solo show. A bit hard to believe, but I […]
