Here’s why I love New York: On June 24, 2011, I was able to start the day off seeing Stephen Colbert and Jack White perform. In the evening, I saw the garage rock of Hanni El Khatib and in the wee hours of the morning, I saw 80s diva Jody Watley perform at the Grammercy Theater. Watley made a rare club appearance to a sparsely populated audience. I had never seen Jody Watley perform before so I was very excited to add her name to the illustrious list of performers I’ve had the pleasure of checking out in concert. She looked much thicker than I recall her being and she performed a very short set that included “Looking for a New Love,” “Real Love,” “Don’t You Want Me” and the very rarely performed “Still a Thrill.” I was the only person who attempted to meet her after the set was over, but unfortunately she didn’t even look in my direction when I tried to talk to her. You win some, you lose some.
