  • Bri Arden at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Bri Arden headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. We missed her last appearance at Stage 2, her EP Release show. I heard that it was absolutely incredible, and based on all of the times I’ve seen Bri, and having listened to her EP many times, I have no […]

  • Rebecca Haviland at Watercolor Cafe

    Rebecca Haviland headlined a set at Watercolor Café. She also joined the openers, The Vanity Belles, playing piano to open and close their set. As with the set before, this was a test of how well a group we love sounds stripped down. In this case, stripped down even further than The Vanity […]

  • The Vanity Belles at Watercolor Cafe

    The Vanity Belles opened for Rebecca Haviland at Watercolor Café in Larchmont last night. Rebecca Haviland plays at Watercooler regularly, but we’ve not been able to make any of her previous shows. That we were finally able to get there on a night when The Vanity Belles (TVB) were opening was doubly delicious. […]

  • Aoife O’Donovan at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Aoife O’Donovan headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. Just as with the set before, I have been hearing about Aoife from my friend Kevin for a very long time now. Unlike the previous set, Kevin is not the only person to tell me that I had to see […]

  • Kristin Andreassen at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Kristin Andreassen headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. I’ve heard about Kristin from my friend Kevin for quite a while and was glad to finally make it to a show. Kristin has a lovely voice and played the acoustic guitar beautifully. I would characterize the set as a […]

  • Mercy Bell at Rockwood Music Hall

    Mercy Bell headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. It’s been a very long time coming for me to finally see her perform. In fact, I’ve been aware of Mercy Bell for two years and this was the first time I saw her live. In March 2010, Mercy Bell invited me […]

  • The Foggy Dudes at Red Lion

    The Foggy Dudes closed out the St. Patty’s weekend at Red Lion with three consecutive sets of traditional Irish music. Not fiddle/pipes stuff, rather, hardy sea shanty tunes. Most of the numbers are very upbeat, often with hysterical lyrics (those seamen needed something to keep them awake). A few are more traditional protest […]

  • Jeff Litman with Joe Brent at Rockwood Music Hall

    Jeff Litman headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall on St. Patrick’s Day. That’s one of the few things that could get us to brave the crazy streets in NYC yesterday. Jeff recently released a new CD, Outside, and we sadly missed the Release Show due to an unmovable trip. We then missed […]

  • Derek James at Rockwood Music Hall

    Derek James headlined Rockwood Music Hall at midnight last night. Q: When you’re his self-anointed #1 fan, and he’s listed at midnight, and you would do whatever you can to see him perform, what drastic action do you take? A: Nap! Yes, good plan, I did indeed nap yesterday afternoon and it paid […]

  • Paula Valstein at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Paula Valstein headlined a set at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 last night. I’ve been wanting to see a full set of Paula’s for a while now. The fact that she was on right after the amazing Burlap to Cashmere meant that I would already be there and didn’t have to leave my […]
