A week plus in NYC always kicks my ass in a good way: Closing out bars after midnight (This a view from the door of Banjo Jim's), soaking up music CMJ showcases from a gazillion other artists, procuring Northern Spy apples at Union Square green market ('the best for pie' they say in New York. ...we shall see.)
Of the music, I thoroughly enjoyed pretty much all of the afternoon line-up at The Living Room on Friday. Yahoo to Kim Taylor, as well as Annie and the Beekeepers. And my fave act so far: The Punch Brothers made me a fan at their Living Room Appearance just now. Wowza, chamber/jazz/bluegrass to keep you in your seat and slacken your jaw!
