The Singer Songwriter Is Alive And Well

2051471098_aeac3274f7_mOne of the many things I love about living in NYC is that on any night of the week you can see great musicians performing live. The past two nights, the Gotham Gal and I did just that.

On Monday night, we saw Conor Oberst and his band Bright Eyes at Radio City. That’s such a great venue for a show.

I posted on it at and the Gotham Gal posted her thoughts too.

Here’s a link to Conor’s song Lua which he played with James Felice on Monday night.

Last night we went to the Blender Theater with the whole family to see Ben Lee.

I posted about the show on Newcritics.

Ben’s new record, Ripe, is terrific, and here’s a song from that record called What Would Jay-Z Do?

    Fred,If you like these guys, you may want to check out Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers ( They are excellent songwriters, but what really stands out is their live shows. They are headlining at the Beacon Theater on Saturday night and I think tickets are still available.

    I’ve been on a big Ben Lee kick myself lately and am also enjoying Ripe. Some other interesting links to check out:Ben Lee recently covered the entire album by “Against Me!” and made it available for free:…I thought that was a cool story and right up your alley. Also, he did a great 4 song set on The Interface here:
