  • Angel Band at Joe’s Pub

    If you’re one of the few people who reads the comments to these posts, then you probably know how we spent last night. Angel Band performed at Joe’s Pub. It also happened to be the official release party for their brand new CD With Roots & Wings. It’s also available as a download […]

  • Doofus Music

    For those of you who know that my favorite group is called Girlyman, you won’t be surprised to hear that I don’t judge a group by their name. 😉 In this post (ironically about Girlyman!) near the bottom, I mentioned that I had lunch with a good friend who I used to work […]

  • Girlyman Mini-Contest

    OK, we just concluded the month-long Girlyman Live CD Contest. The results were just posted. As you can see in that post, there were two CDs left un-won. In keeping with the spirit of the original contest, trying to have some fun in promoting this fantastic group, Lois and I are now running […]

  • Girlyman Live CD Contest Winners

    OK, the Girlyman Live CD contest is officially over. Picking the winners turned out to be easy, somewhat unfortunately. There were only eight entries, so they all win! It just so happens that all eight entries were really good, but it would have been nice to see even more like these. Given that […]

  • The Proclaimers at BB King

    Last night marked the end of our mini-streak of concerts (six in seven nights, including the last three in a row at BB King). We saw The Proclaimers. In 1998 The Proclaimers released their second studio CD, Sunshine On Leith. The first two songs on the album really grabbed Lois: I’m Gonna Be […]

  • Jerry Douglas at BB King

    Last night we saw Jerry Douglas (and band) at BB King. Opening for them were The Wrights. I’ll cover The Wrights after I review Jerry Douglas, and then finish up with my usual venue summary. We’ve seen Jerry Douglas before at the Beacon Theater, August 2nd, 2007, when he played with Alison Krauss […]

  • Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo at BB King

    A few months ago, I saw that Pat Benatar was playing at BB King with Neil Giraldo. I only own one Pat Benatar CD (Crimes of Passion) and it’s absolutely awesome. I am embarrassed to admit that I had never heard the name Neil Giraldo, since he’s been her husband for 26 years, […]

  • Cherish The Ladies at Towne Crier Cafe

    Lois and I are very big fans of traditional Irish music. This should come as no surprise to those who know us (or regularly read this space), not because I write about Irish music a lot, but because we really love tons of roots music and there is a lot of Irish roots […]

  • Joan Baez at Paramount Theater

    Last night Lois and I drove 30 minutes to Peekskill, NY to see Joan Baez at the Paramount Theater. How we came to see this show is itself a long story, delivered later in this post. One of the biggest influences in my teen years was Bob Dylan. Not just the music, but […]

  • The Wailin’ Jennys at Joe’s Pub

    Last night finally came, our third time seeing The Wailin’ Jennys live, but our first time seeing them at our favorite place, Joe’s Pub. The last time we saw them was their last show of 2007, at Gravity Lounge in Charlotesville, VA, covered in this post. Unfortunately, there were quite a number of […]
