  • 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 […]

  • Rebecca Haviland at Arelene’s Grocery

    We missed a bunch of great shows last week due to the extended holiday weekend and the wonderful company that was up from Richmond to spend it with us. Rebecca Haviland was appearing at Rockwood Music Hall on Friday night, and that’s the only show we had planned to abandon our company to […]

  • Greg Mayo Band at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    What’s a Saturday night in NYC without a taste of Greg Mayo? Empty! Thankfully, NYC was full last night. Greg often plays with others on a Saturday, but it was his turn to shine in the spotlight with The Greg Mayo Band. Given the time of year, it was no surprise that there […]

  • Sierra Noble at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Sierra Noble at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. We try to plan our musical calendar out at least a month in advance. While things come up occasionally, causing us to shift plans (not including health issues), we try hard to stick […]

  • Rebecca Haviland at Rockwood Music Hall

    Rebecca Haviland at Rockwood Music Hall? We’re there. We’d go even if we knew it would be identical to the last show, but this time I knew there would be at least a small twist. One of her band members, Greg Mayo, was playing in Washington, DC, so something would be different. It […]

Rockwood 8p: playing brand new songs w/ @CAndersonbass @matt_simons & @adamchristgau that we’re recording today.excited We already had it on the calendar for a while, but didn’t know it would be a full […]

  • Sierra Noble at The Bitter End

    What do you do when one of your favorite performers has a show at one of your least favorite venues? You go, without hesitation. Sierra Noble easily qualifies as one of our favorites. The Bitter End easily qualifies as one of the least enjoyable venues we frequent semi-regularly. Both turned out exactly as […]

  • Greg Mayo Band Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 CMJ

    Greg Mayo Band headlined at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, one of the last sets to officially close out the week-long CMJ Festival (of course, there were a ton of other sets closing out the week in many other venues). But there was only one venue for us to be, namely the one […]

  • Erik White at Rockwood Music Hall

    Erik White headlined a show at Rockwood Music Hall yesterday. I’ve seen Erik three times before, always in the role of sideman. I had no idea what to expect. I would have gone anyway, on the strength of how I came to know about him to begin with, but when Chris Anderson told […]

  • Amy Rivard at Rockwood Music Hall

    Amy Rivard headlined Rockwood Music Hall yesterday. For us, this marked a big shift in her career (perhaps not so from her perspective). I’ll describe the show in a bit, but I want to step back and explain what I mean above, mostly for myself. If you already know about Amy’s previous careers/accomplishments, […]
