Bandcamp Bonanza

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” ― Maya Angelou Hie yourselves over to Bandcamp: 100% of the proceeds go to the creators. Many artists of every stripe are facing difficulties in the midst of the pandemic. Precarity is fun for no one!…

Robyn Hitchcock @ Caffe Lena

To see Mr Hitchcock live is to fall in love again with his music and charm. And no I don’t say that just because he complimented me on my houndstooth wrap. At the legendary café where so many have sung, it was a delight to spend some time with the singer renowned for his wit…

Downtown Boys, Dangbats and More

The weekend was a little too Edna, but I had a grand time running off to Connecticut to see the Fabulous QoE (and chill at the Jezebel Lounge), Marko (and distract him during his radio show), fellow SpeakEasy dame Lys Guillorn as half of the Dangbats and the amazing Downtown Boys. See some awesome photos…

Scottish Night at Albany Symphony

As I idle along in my way, seemingly random and directionless at times, I nonetheless manage to be in the right place at the right time more often than one might reasonably expect. Friday night that was true, as I went with the delightful Mary Browne to see the ‘Scottish Night” with the Albany Symphony…
