  • A Holiday Benefit #5 at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Last week I scanned the Rockwood Music Hall website for this week’s shows. There was a show listed for last night simply labeled: “A Holiday Benefit”. The performers were a mixture of our favorite who’s who, plus a couple of groups we have wanted to see for a while, but scheduling has gotten […]

  • Bess Rogers CD Release at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Last night was Bess Rogers CD Release Party for Out of the Ocean. It was a three-hour, three-act show. I already covered the two opening acts, Allie Moss followed by Ian Axel. Bess has created a beautiful CD. As good as the songs are, the production by Chris Kuffner (Bess’ husband) is incredible. […]

  • Ian Axel, Bess Rogers and Allie Moss at Jammin Java

    Another night, another stop on the Intergalactic Tour of the Universe and Beyond Tour. It wasn’t originally meant to be, but when the Universe (and Beyond!) wants something, it makes it happen. Two years ago, Richmond CenterStage opened with a big gala celebration. I covered one of the nights. Last night was a […]

  • Ian Axel, Bess Rogers and Allie Moss at a House Concert

    Last night was our third time in four days seeing Ian Axel, Bess Rogers and Allie Moss perform (no big deal, don’t be too jealous). The last two shows were part of the Intergalactic Tour of the Universe and Beyond Tour. All three shows were unique because the venues were so different, as […]

  • Ian Axel, Bess Rogers and Allie Moss at The Falcon

    We love surprising musicians by showing up in places they’d never expect us. It’s way more fun when the venue is new to us and everything we read makes us think it will be a favorite, instantly. Such was the case last night. Having just seen Ian Axel the night before (Tuesday) at […]

  • Rosi Golan Lead Balloon CD Release Show at Bowery Ballroom

    I’m a very big fan of Rosi Golan. I love The Drifter and the Gypsy (until last week, Rosi’s most current CD). I love her side-project, The Open Sea (with Ari Hest). Their EP is extraordinary. The chance to see Rosi perform is good enough reason to come out. Add to that a […]

  • Rachel Platten, Bess Rogers and Bethany and the Guitar at Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse

    We’re nearing the middle of a two week hiatus from NYC music. We’ve already missed some very special shows and will be missing a few more before we get back on the horse. None of that mattered, because I thought I was going to see a night of Musical Mud Wrestling starring two […]

  • Martin Rivas and Robbie Gil at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Martin Rivas was bringing his current Saturday Night residency at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 to a close last night (he’ll be touring Europe much of the summer). That would be reason enough to go see him (the last full-band show in NYC until late August or early September). But I’ll give you […]

  • Backscratch 13 at Rockwood Music Hall

    Given how awesome last night was, I’m still a little in shock that I missed the first 12 Backscratch sessions. This was the second time it was held in Rockwood Music Hall. Here’s the concept: gather a bunch of musicians. Each plays three songs. Traditionally (or so the legend goes) each played one […]

  • Bess Rogers and Lelia Broussard at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Scratch another one off my music bucket list, Bess Rogers. We’ve been aware of her for a long time, having seen her husband, Chris Kuffner perform at least a dozen times. Even though we were hoping to stay in last night and catch up on some much-needed rest, when I found out Bess […]
