  • Delta Rae at Rockwood Music Hall

    The first time I heard the name Delta Rae was on April 2nd 2010, in an email from a good friend. He forwarded a note from a friend of his (who I’ve never met). Ever since then, I’ve formed an email friendship with our mutual friend and he’s been promoting Delta Rae to […]

  • Rosi Golan and William Fitzsimmons at Jammin Java

    I’ve waited way too long to catch a Rosi Golan set. I’ve seen her perform a song or two here and there. I’ve even caught a complete set of her performing her new side project The Open Sea with Ari Hest (I can’t wait for the upcoming EP, the two of them are […]

  • Jay Nash, Joey Ryan and Chris Seefried

    Joey Ryan in NYC the same night that we are? No need to wonder what we had planned. 🙂 Joey just completed a UK/Europe tour with Jay Nash. After joining a lot of our favorite artists for a show (way) upstate in NY over the 4th of July weekend, they headed down to […]

  • Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller at Town Hall

    Many (most?) of our favorite performers (superstars and up-and-comers alike!) count Patty Griffin among their hero singer/songwriters. This includes Girlyman, whose cover of Patty’s Mary is haunting and stunning. We are familiar with many of her songs mostly because our favorites play them (both covers and cuts). We hadn’t had the pleasure of […]

  • Red Molly at Turning Point Cafe

    We love Red Molly. On Friday, I saw their Facebook update that they would be playing at The Turning Point Cafe in Piermont. In fact, they were playing two shows, at 4 and 7pm. We had dinner plans with a couple that we see so rarely, that there was no way we were […]

  • Ian Axel Triumphantly Returns to Fair Lawn

    Ian Axel grew up in Fair Lawn, NJ. Last night they coaxed him back to play in the beautiful Fair Lawn Community Center. It was a very special night, filled with family, friends and fans. I can’t even imagine the emotions running through Ian’s head throughout the night, even though he did a […]

  • Alex Wong and Adam Levy at Rockwood

    Last night was a real treat for us. We got to see one of our favorite musicians perform his first solo show. We also caught the set before his, which was wonderful, and I’ll cover that as well. Alex Wong is an incredible talent, something I repeat very often (well deserved repetition). We […]

  • Happy Birthday Lois

    I’ve mentioned that Lois just had a birthday in May in three separate posts: The Paper Raincoat and Ian Axel at Mercury Lounge The Addams Family Ian Axel and Joey Ryan at Rockwood Music Hall In fact, many of our friends (and family) had May birthdays, at least one even more significant than […]

  • Ian Axel and Joey Ryan at Rockwood Music Hall

    We had a big birthday celebration weekend for Lois. I just put up a short blog (OK, short for me) about The Addams Family which we saw on Friday night. Last night, we had a special dinner at the Peking Duck House, and I will write about that in the next couple of […]

  • Paper Raincoat and Ian Axel at Mercury Lounge

    Lois and I go out of our way to avoid concerts where we have to stand throughout the show. That cuts out a number of top venues in NYC where that’s the norm. For most rules, there are some exceptions. Last night, knowing we would be standing, we still couldn’t imagine skipping The […]
