Mark Guiliana's Thing @ Rockwood Music Hall
Great Music venue in Lower East Side with no cover – Rockwood Music Hall. Seems like they have 9-11 1-hour shows per night. The reason I got there was Mark Guiliana’s Thing (the best thing I know about New Jersey ). It was Jason Fratticelli on bass – electric bass this time, he was just as killin’ on it as on Wednesday @ Rose, where he played acoustic bass. And Aaron Dugan on guitar. Lots of experimenting, delay, flanger, nice work with looper. The live vibe reminded me of Led Zeppelin – incredible grooves and playing together. I got there a little late but just in time to see Matisyahu sitting in for a tune. That was unbelievable. This really random-looking guy strolls on the stage and gives a killin’ performance playing some rap/reggae music with the band and taking a great beatboxing solo. Does that kind of thing happen anywhere else besides New York?
