The Inn at Millrace Pond

HOPE, NJ—Slowly sipping a hot cup of green tea at the Fireside Tavern in the historic Inn at Millrace Pond in Hope, NJ, I watched Gina Royale and her entourage of family and friends pour in, and then set up a no-frills keyboard, …

With them, AWOLNATION and Pvris got to show off their talent as the support for this U.S. …

The 30th Annual Birthday Tribute To The Late George L. Popp @ The Bowery Electric

MANHATTAN, NY—Bill Popp has been a fixture in the New York music scene since the 1970s. Performing as Bill Popp & The Tapes since 1981, his pop rock sound has survived other passing trends, including glam rock and punk rock. Never achieving fame, he is perhaps the only artist that …

Club Night: Memento Mori @ Bedlam

NEW YORK, NY—Since sometime late last summer, promoter Ana Vice has been hosting a small group of DJs for a mid-week monthly Goth social and dance night at a uniquely eerily decorated bar, appropriately called Bedlam, in Manhattan’s Alphabet City. The night is called “Memento Mori,” and it is held …

Enslaved @ Irving Plaza

MANHATTAN, NY—A warm December night made coat check unnecessary at Irving Plaza for the oddly-matched bill of Between The Buried and Me and Enslaved. On paper, it was a sensible combination of progressive metal acts, but in practice, the disparity between Enslaved’s Norwegian Viking attitude and BTBAM’s American math-metalcore made …

O.A.R. @ Wellmont Theater

Neko Case @ Apollo Theater

MANHATTAN, NY—Neko Case is something of a ringer. Whether or not you’ve seen her live, watched performances online, or just know the albums she’s released on her own and with the New Pornographers, it’s evident that her voice rises a step above the rest. There’s soul in the timbre, mixed …

Britain Vs. The Bowery @ The Saint

ASBURY PARK, NJ—Three really accomplished cover bands, representing three famous icons of the late ’70s and early ’80s, converged on this venerable music venue in Asbury to recreate an evening of music of an era dear to the hearts of many. Both those old enough to recall the inception days …

Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull Rock Opera @ Kings Theater

BROOKLYN, NY—Ian Anderson presented his rock opera, adding some breath to the classics he’s juxtaposed over a storyline based on a fictionalized and updated Jethro Tull, who perfected the horse-drawn seed drill in 1701. Sounds confusing and a little awkward at first but as with most things done by the …
