Todd Rundgren: Brooklyn Bowl 24 May 2016

Some people may recognize the name Todd Rundgren from the Bebe Buell/Liv Tyler/Steven Tyler gossip.

The Old 97’s: Irving Plaza 12 May 2016

I’ve been remiss in my posting so I have a backlog of May reviews. Passion was the theme of the day – first there was my passion for Hamilton and seeing and reading about Hamilton’s passions and then going to see one of my favorite bands and their passion for performing. After my Hamilton day, […]
