  • 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 […]

  • Chris Thile and Michael Daves at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Any Chris Thile show in NYC sells out, whether it’s with the Punch Brothers or with Michael Daves. Add a little special sauce, say a CD Release Show and you can be sure that the sellout will happen even more quickly. Chris Thile and Michael Daves just released a new CD, Sleep With […]

  • The Grascals at Highline Ballroom

    When a band plans a tour there is very little wiggle room in any given city. They’re generally on the move all night (if they have a professional bus driver), or all day (if they’re driving themselves). There are many things you can’t control when planning months in advance. Two such things are […]

  • The Grascals at Birchmere

    Last night we saw The Grascals at the Birchmere. It was our second time seeing them live. I covered the first time extensively in this post (2/3 of the way down), and all but one comment from that post applied to last night! The one comment that would require updating is that they […]

    I started blogging nearly three years ago, purely to keep a journal as we were growing older. Memories fade and blur over time, and this seemed like a good place to document the happenings of our lives. It’s grown a bit since then in a number of ways, but mostly, due to some […]

  • Yonder Mountain String Band at Tarrytown Music Hall

    We live near Tarrytown Music Hall and we’ve been to six shows there since we discovered it (we were very late to the party). We are on the mailing list, so we get notifications of upcoming shows. A couple of months ago I noticed that Yonder Mountain String Band (YMSB) would be playing […]

  • Happy Birthday Lois

    Lois and I rarely exchange gifts or cards on any occasion, including birthdays. The main exception is that Lois has gone out of her way to make some of my milestone birthdays very special affairs. That included my 30th, 35th and 50th. This was not a milestone birthday for Lois, but I decided […]

  • City Slickers Bluegrass Festival

    This past Saturday, May 9th, 2009, seven of us attended the City Slickers Bluegrass Festival in Richmond, VA. How and why we came to attend will be the subject of my next post, this one will just cover the event itself. There were three headliners and one opening act. The opening act, Page […]
