  • Jesse Ruben at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    I’ve seen Jesse Ruben do a full set at Rockwood Music Hall once before. Lois was sick that night. I had nothing but compliments for Jesse and you can read about it in the second half of this post. Last night he played Stage 2 and had a full band. Everything I said […]

  • Karly Jurgensen at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Last night started off bittersweet. Sweet, because we finally got to see a full set of Karly Jurgensen (at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2). Bitter, because at the show, she announced that she’s moving back to Nebraska at the end of September. I first saw Karly on November 4th, 2010, when Jesse Ruben […]

  • Greg Mayo at Rockwood Music Hall

    In my last post, about Rebecca Haviland, I mentioned that we would never miss one of her shows at Rockwood Music Hall if we could physically make it. The same holds true for Greg Mayo. That each had sets on the same night, and played on each other’s set, was diabetic icing on […]

  • Rebecca Haviland at Rockwood Music Hall

    Rebecca Haviland at Rockwood Music Hall? Count us in, whenever it’s physically possible. Last night it was and we were there. Rebecca has a spectacular voice. She writes great songs. She has an amazing band. Everything else I write will be mere details. You now know what you need to know! Rebecca loves […]

  • Christine Hoberg at Rockwood Music Hall

    We were at Rockwood Music Hall last night to see the 9pm and 11pm sets. Chrstine Hoberg was listed at 10pm. I’ve heard the name a number of times but had no idea what her music was like. Given the convenience of not getting out of our chairs, I was happy to find […]

  • John Schmitt at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Last Friday, John Schmitt had a Birthday show at The Living Room. At that show he announced that his first show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 would be the following Thursday (last night). Of course, it immediately went on our calendar. Last night’s show was just as much fun as the Birthday […]

  • Leave a Lasting Mark Blues Brothers Tribute at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Every month, Sam Teichman produces a benefit concert. Proceeds go to different charities (one per show). Last night was for Ronald McDonald House of NY. If you want to get involved directly, with the NY chapter, here’s their contact info: Ronald McDonald House in New York City 405 East 73rd Street New York, […]

  • John Schmitt Birthday Show at The Living Room

    I seem to be saying this a lot lately: Musicians tend to play on or near their birthday, throwing a party for their fans, even though it’s work for them. That trend continued last night. John Schmitt celebrated his birthday (and noted that two members of his band/guests had birthdays one day on […]

  • Chris Ayer at Rockwood Music Hall

    Chris Ayer just returned from touring the UK and Europe. We missed him while he was gone, though it might sound protectionist if I publicly admit that we didn’t want to share him with the rest of the world. Matt Simons, one of Chris’ partners-in-crime toured with him, but wasn’t in town last […]

  • Alex Wong and Ximena at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2

    Alex Wong had a show listed at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 as: “Alex Wong and Special Guest”. A number of days ago the title changed to “Alex Wong and Ximena”. We didn’t need any extra incentive to attend the show, but if Alex was worried that we were getting tired of seeing […]
