  • John Schmitt at Rockwood Music Hall

    Even though it’s only been a few weeks since we last saw John Schmitt perform (May 13th at The Living Room), we were really looking forward to this show last night. The set at The Living Room was excellent, which is reason enough to want more. But Rockwood Music Hall is also more […]

  • Matt Koziol at Rockwood Music Hall

    We had firm plans to see three sets last night, the first of which was at 7pm at Rockwood Music Hall. As is our custom, we like to check out the set before we want to be there both to see if there’s someone worth discovering and to snag a seat more easily […]

  • Delta Rae at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Having seen Delta Rae twice before, we were looking forward to this show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 with great anticipation. Whatever expectations I had, they were exceeded. You can safely stop reading now, as everything else will be detail to back up that statement. Here is a retweet of theirs with […]

  • Jesse Terry and Carley Tanchon at Sessions 73

    At 8pm we were at Rockwood Music Hall catching a set by Derek James and the Lovely Fools. The minute the set was over we hopped in a cab and headed straight up First Avenue (no turns from Rockwood all the way to Sessions 73). We had never been to Sessions 73 before, […]

  • Derek James and the Lovely Fool with New Band Members at Rockwood Music Hall

    Last night was my fourth time seeing Derek James and the Lovely Fools. Each setup was different (last night was no exception) and only one of them was disappointing (hint: not last night). The show was at Rockwood Music Hall. There are many bands that create a party atmosphere. In many cases, it […]

  • Ximena Sarinana at Rockwood Music Hall

    We are huge fans of everything Alex Wong does. His talents seem boundless. One of those talents is spotting other talented people, then collaborating with them to increase the talent level in the room geometrically. Recently, Alex toured with Elizabeth and the Catapult (see, I told you he knows talent) when they opened […]

  • Michael Daves at Rockwood Music Hall

    We’ve seen Michael Daves twice before. Once, in a solo performance at Rockwood Music Hall and once with Chris Thile for their CD Release show next door at Stage 2. Our first experience with him was good, but the duet with Chris Thile was extraordinary, even though Michael couldn’t sing due to the […]

  • Sidecar at Rockwood Music Hall

    We saw Live Society at Arlene’s Grocery from 8-9pm. We were planning on seeing Michael Daves and Ximena Sarinana back-to-back at Rockwood Music Hall starting at 10pm. We had an hour to kill and we were around the corner from Rockwood. We went in to see who was playing the 9pm set. Sidecar […]

  • Live Society at Arlene’s Grocery

    I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to make this show. We had early dinner plans, but that didn’t mean the dinner wouldn’t last a long time. Amazingly, unbeknownst to us, our friend had a ticket for the 7:30pm show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, which I guess explains her agreement to […]

  • Is Rudeness a Necessary Evil?

    Send to Kindle(Wow, I just finished writing and unsurprisingly, I created a monster. If you can’t make it through the entire post, I forgive you, but you might want to peek at the last few paragraphs for one proposed solution to the problem…) There is a recurring theme in too many of my posts, rude […]
