  • Ian Axel and Rachel Platten at Mercury Lounge

    When this show was announced in October, we instantly grabbed four tickets (the maximum that Mercury Lounge sells, online or in person!). Since then, we’ve been waiting impatiently for the show to start. The last time we saw Ian Axel perform was a single song guest appearance on 9/22/2010. Before that, it was […]

  • The Paper Raincoat at Mercury Lounge

    Last night was our second time at Mercury Lounge. We went to see the same group that brought us there the first time, The Paper Raincoat. No matter how many times we see the same groups, each show has it’s own character, making it worth coming out for reasons other than simply supporting […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • ambeR Rubarth and Adam Levy at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Another night, another show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, same old, same old. 🙂 This night featured a totally different type of music, but was similar in that we love this group of performers as did the rest of the crowd. The co-billed show was ambeR Rubarth (we love her solo, with […]

  • Ian Axel at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    We’ve seen Ian Axel perform nine times prior to last night. The very first time was at Rockwood Music Hall, on October 23rd 2009. He blew us away. As hard as it is to imagine, he’s never disappointed us, even with a wide variety of venues and setups (solo, different band members, etc.). […]

  • Ian Axel Triumphantly Returns to Fair Lawn

    Ian Axel grew up in Fair Lawn, NJ. Last night they coaxed him back to play in the beautiful Fair Lawn Community Center. It was a very special night, filled with family, friends and fans. I can’t even imagine the emotions running through Ian’s head throughout the night, even though he did a […]

  • Paper Raincoat and Ian Axel at Mercury Lounge

    Lois and I go out of our way to avoid concerts where we have to stand throughout the show. That cuts out a number of top venues in NYC where that’s the norm. For most rules, there are some exceptions. Last night, knowing we would be standing, we still couldn’t imagine skipping The […]

  • Ian Axel at Joe’s Pub

    We’ve seen Ian Axel perform three full sets before, plus a few songs at the New York Sings for Haiti benefit and some guest appearances. Still, we were looking forward to last night with great anticipation. Joe’s Pub is our favorite NYC spot to see a show, and Ian is one of our […]

  • ambeR Rubarth at Highline Ballroom

    amber Rubarth is an extraordinary singer/songwriter. I’ve written about her many times. Here is the post about her CD Release Party at Joe’s Pub. Last night she headlined the Highline Ballroom and created another exceptional performance (a DVD of the show will be available later this year!). Highline Ballroom is the biggest stage […]
