  • Victoria Lavington Fundraiser at Christopher Street Coffeehouse

    Almost two years ago, I discovered a duo named Sweet Bitters. Since then, we’ve seen them perform a number of times and have become friendly with both Sharon Goldman and Nina Schmir (also known as Nina Soka). For many years (at least nine I believe), Sharon has been a member of a female […]

  • Red Molly and The Nields at Joe’s Pub

    Last night I finally got to scratch an itch that I’ve had since April 5th, 2008! That’s the night that we first saw Sweet Bitters live. I covered that show in this post, but as you can see, in the comments, Sharon suggested that I check out Red Molly. The minute I heard […]

I really wanted to make it to hear them […]
