Elevation! The Pilfers are back full-time, well most of the original members are back (Coolie, Nick and James). The band had to press on with touring without Anna and Vinny and those are some big shoes to fill but the new guys (Ben Basile and Billy Kottage) held up well. Pilfers still know how to put on one hell of a show!

Dan Potthast (of Mu330) has been playing solo for awhile now but this was the first time I saw him perform. I remember seeing Mu330 and Bruce Lee Band (Mike Park + Mu330) at Ska Against Racism years ago but that was it. I wanted to film a session with him for Before The Concert, but with the crappy weather it wasn’t meant to be. Maybe next time he’s in the NYC area.

I’m trying to remember the last time I saw the The Scofflaws perform. It could have been at the Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY 10-13 years ago or it could have been at the Wetlands. I can’t remember. The Scofflaws played late last night at (Electric Avenue) Characters in NYC. It was a fun time for dancing, taking pictures and hanging out.

I originally wanted to go to the Scofflaws show at Electric Avenue at Characters on W 54st. Then hockey came back and I originally was just going to stay home and watch the Rangers game. I’m glad I decided to venture out after the game because I saw a great ska show! Better than the stinko performance from the NYR. The first ska show of 2013 and I hope many more! The opening band was The Bullbuckers from Delaware (from the state that sends me endless amounts of credit card mail). They were a fun band to see!

Back in the Fall, I reviewed an album on ReadJunk.com that I surprisingly enjoyed. That album was Waves Are Only Water by singer/songwriter Nick Gill. I’ve been listening to that album nonstop since then. I was hoping Nick would play New York City so I could see him live and he perhaps film him for BeforeTheConcert.com. Well I got the chance last night to see him perform live and to also perform a session before the concert.
