Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Highline Ballroom – New York, NY – 4/25/17

New Orleans came to New York and for that we are forever grateful.  The city of New Orleans is a magical, cultural, musical, and mysterious place.  Nothing can replicate it, sorry Popeyes.  However, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band can tour with it, well the music at least, and make you feel like you are down… Read More Preservation Hall Jazz Band – Highline Ballroom – New York, NY – 4/25/17

Once and awhile, when Less Than Jake take a short breather, Roger Lima explores his other band Rehasher.  For those that don’t know who Rehasher is, think the punk songs of Less Than Jake, i.e. no horns or upstroke guitars, blended with bands like Lagwagon and Descendents.  Quite honestly the best mix you can have.… Read More Rehasher / We Are The Union / MakeWar – Mercury Lounge – New York, NY – 4/21/17
