New York is one of these cities that I have a contentious relationship with. It’s summed up in a line from an old song I think “when there, I want to be away, and when away, I want to be there”.
At heart I’m a small town type, so New York can be too loud, too fast, too crowded, too everything. So not necessarily a place to live, at leaat for me, but to visit… well to visit New York is where the City that never sleep, earns its rep.
And Grammy winner Gregory Porter is the perfect attraction to get me and the wife to brave the brutal cold of New York this weekend. His LIQUID SPIRIT being one of the great albums of this still newly minted century.
Add to that the concert is at New York’s historic Town Hall, a building designed at the dawn of the previous century for Suffragites, and you have the elements for something special.
