Long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Leslie Mendelson has been living in London this year and has been absent from her long time home, The Rockwood Music Hall. But Leslie will grace Rockwood’s Stage 2 tonight for what looks like her only 2014 show there.
If you haven’t heard or heard of Leslie, she plays piano, guitar, ukelele and sings, has a great pop sensibility, and as Vin Scelsa of WFUV once said, “nobody can write a sweet song like Leslie.” Famed producer Jac Holzman has even compared Leslie to Carol King. Leslie just recently performed Elvis Costello‘s Everyday I Write the Book with Steve Nieve at City Winery, and has played with Bob Weir as well.
Leslie Mendelson, Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, 196 Allen Street between Houston and Stanton Streets (F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 1st Avenue exit), 10pm, No Cover (but a contribution for the musicians is highly recommended)
