Why I will miss New York, reason #71:

I was walking home through Tompkins Square Park today and happened upon a small stage, like you'd set up at a small-town Fourth of July celebration, festooned with balloons that spelled out, "Kulpick* Wings Eating Contest." A small group of ordinary people stood directly in front of the stage, clapping raucously, yet oddly almost in rhythm, slightly too-smiling, it seemed to me. A couple of women stood on the stage, tossing chicken wings casually into the crowd.

And, oh yeah, a hip young man stood on the stage between the women, pointing a giant camera down at the clapping, smiling extras.

*I might have this name wrong. Something like.

And speaking of New York, this just nails it.

We've been listening to and playing music in New York City for years and have always found it near impossible to dig through all the live events in this great city to find the ones that tickle our ears. This site was created to highlight the music we like to listen to and hopefully help you find refuge from the throngs of wanna-be-on-MTV bands who usually dominate the other listing sites out there.
