  • Joey Ryan and Matt Hires at Workplay

    We visit Birmingham, AL at least twice a year. We were planning to arrive late last night. A week earlier, I noticed a tweet by Joey Ryan that he was touring the South opening for Matt Hires. After a quick consultation with Lois, we changed our plans to arrive much earlier in the […]

  • Cirque De La Symphonie at Richmond CenterStage

    I grew up on classical music. My dad had thousands of full reel-to-reel tapes that he played non-stop from tape #1 through the last. When I need to be rejuvenated, I still turn to classical music, though I listen to other stuff way more often. Last night our friends invited us to a […]

  • Susan Greenbaum at Weinstein JCC

    Two very special things happened last night at the Weinstein JCC in Richmond, VA. The first was a tribute and fundraiser for the Henry S. Fine Memorial Fund for Special Needs. Henry S. Fine was quite an extraordinary person (unfortunately, he passed away last year). You can read about him and the benefit […]

  • ambeR Rubarth, Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Another night, another awesome show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 (third one in four nights!). I guess there’s nothing left to say. This will officially be my shortest post ever. Why are you still here? OK, just for you, take a peek below this line and I’ll share my experience from last […]

  • The Open Sea and Katie Costello at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    The Open Sea is a duo comprised of Ari Hest and Rosi Golan. They were secretly announced on March 24th, 2010 in a show that we attended. We are fans of both Ari and Rosi separately, but on that night I had an instant love affair with their side project, The Open Sea. […]

  • Vicci Martinez at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    There are two tangible benefits of befriending other music lovers who attend many of the shows we do: They sometimes become real friends, beyond the music, enriching our lives in the process They recommend other groups for us to check out. Due to our first-hand knowledge of their excellent taste in music, we’re […]

  • Martin Rivas and Rachel Platten at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I expected to knock another 1.5 items off my music bucket list. I’m upgrading the .5 to a full point! 😉 Not only did I get to finally see Martin Rivas perform a full set, but it was different than I expected (his adoring fans clearly knew […]

  • Allie Moss, Matthew Perryman Jones and Lauren Zettler at Rockwood Stage 2

    I have no fear of emptying my music bucket list in my lifetime, because I add things to the list at a faster rate than I check them off. Last night, I got to finally remove two items that have been on the list for a while. I can summarize in advance that […]

  • Antje Duvekot and Anne Heaton at House Concert

    Last night we attended our second ever house concert. I can easily see this becoming a habit. I started this blog 3.5 years ago with one goal in mind, document our lives so that as our memory fades (inevitable) we will have a permanent record to reflect back on. A completely unexpected side-benefit […]

  • The Paper Raincoat at Mercury Lounge

    Last night was our second time at Mercury Lounge. We went to see the same group that brought us there the first time, The Paper Raincoat. No matter how many times we see the same groups, each show has it’s own character, making it worth coming out for reasons other than simply supporting […]
