Like my own musical Tuesdays with Morrie, I feel fortunate to have spent some good times with Tonic in the club’s dying days. The best little naked performance space in New York never did wrong by me, and on three Wednesdays in November it provided a fun backdrop for evenings with Marco Benevento and his residency friends.
And on August 7th, Ropeadope will release three discs worth of highlights from the Duo keyboardist’s five-night Novemberstand on the Lower East Side. I’m all tingly just thinkin’ about it. Check out this video recap of the weekly gig:
If you’re curious, special guests include Mike Gordon, Steven Bernstein, Dave Driewitz, Reed Mathis, Matt Chamberlain, Bobby Previte, Sir Joe Russo, Mike Dillon, Scott Metzger, Claude Coleman, and Brad Barr. Dig it.
