If you want to see some live music tonight, the place to be is The Rockwood Music Hall. At 7:30pm, My Pet Dragon will play a set at Rockwood Stage 2. MPD has blended some interesting sounds in the past, including 80s synth pop and U2-like anthemic songs. Take this opportunity to check out the husband-wife team of Todd Michaelsen and Reena Shah and see what they have up their collective sleeves.
At 10pm, Fife & Drom, another band led by a husband-wife team (Abby Ahmad and Mark Marshall) will take the stage next door at the original Rockwood Music Hall. Fife & Drom play blues and rock. You can expect to hear songs off of the band’s album, Introducing Fife & Drom, as well as some thoughtfully chosen covers.
Stick around after Fife & Drom, because immediately following them at 11pm is Rony’s Insomnia. RI is a rock band led by Rony Corcos, who landed in New York City after growing up in Israel and spending some time in London. If you are looking to hear something new, this is the band to check out.
