Sarah McIntosh of The Good Natured
Hot band alert! The UK electropop band The Good Natured visited New York’s Mercury Lounge on January 15, 2012. I’d never heard any of their music until they took the stage and I liked every song I heard tonight in their 8 song set. Their music is upbeat and has a great groove. Lead singer Sarah McIntosh’s voice reminded me of bits of Ladytron and LaRoux. The audience was loving the show as well, especially when Sarah McIntosh performed in the crowd. People were yelling out to hear The Good Natured’s single “Skeleton,” which was the final track of the night. You can download a free mp3 of another great track “Wolves” on The Good Natured’s website. I am looking forward to hearing more great music from this group and Sarah told me that the album should be completed by the end of January. Watch out for The Good Natured. They are going to be big!
See the set list as well as photos from my encounter with the band after the jump.

Neneh Cherry and G
I love Neneh Cherry! Her tracks such as “Buffalo Stance,” “Move With Me” and “Seven Seconds (with Youssou N’Dour)” rule! She made a rare New York appearance at Music Hall of Williamsburg to pay tribute to Ari Up a/k/a Ariane Forster, lead singer of the pioneering girl punk band the Slits, who passed away in 2010. Though the weather was not warm, Neneh Cherry was the coolest! I expressed my gratitude for getting to see her in the flesh and thanked her for the great music. Thanks again, Neneh! I hope this performance inspires her to go back out on the road!

Remember David Chokachi from Baywatch? I do! I met the actor several times and let me tell you, my knees got weak every time I met him. What a hottie! It’s his birthday today, so happy birthday David!
