Apologies for the hiatus, some things have been going on in the real world that have taken me away from electronic life. I’ll be back up by the end of the week with posts and photos and all that good stuff.
In the meantime, here’s what was going on last week on Examiner. Brooklyn Bowl, which has become one of my favorite venues in town is in the middle of hosting a two week residency with Soulive. It’s called, cleverly, Bowlive.
I’d heard of the group before, but never really knew their music. They are an instrumental band that blurs the boundaries between funk, soul, rock and jazz and they throw a great party.
For five nights last week and another five nights this week, they are performing with some great guest acts, starting last week with Vernon Reid and continuing this week with guests including Questlove and Rahzel on Thursday and Charlie Hunter tonight.
It was a hugely fun show and I wish I could stop in again before it’s all done to see them perform again.
When things settle down a bit, I plan to get back to some of the regular posting I had been doing for my column. Expect a return to the Brokelyn 25 and maybe even an attempt to start up my Late Night Snacks feature again.
