It’s rare to attend a triple bill concert and enjoy all three bands, but such a feat was pulled off when I saw Jeane, Pond and Oberhofer live at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on March 21, 2012.  The show began around 8:30 with Brooklyn’s Jeane taking the stage.  The alt-rock band features Paul Dally on lead vocals and his voice sounds to me a bit like Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam)  mixed with Ian Curtis (Joy Division) and Julian Casablancas (The Strokes).  By the end of their set, it was obvious they had won the crowd over.

Charlie Fink of Noah and the Whale

On March 21, 2011, the English folk/rock band Noah and the Whale played their first of 2 sold out shows at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.  Opening the show was 22 year old Luke Rathborne, whose sound was a nice mix of Bob Dylan and Lou Reed.  Noah and the Whale have been around since 2006 and the world is finally starting to take notice of the 5 piece band after the success of their latest single “L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.”  I enjoyed what I heard and don’t let the “folk” label scare you away because Noah and the Whale rocked.  Lead singer Charlie Fink introduced every song to the audience (sometimes with an anecdote) and the crowd was loving what they heard.  Fun fact about Noah and the Whale:  the band takes their name from the movie “The Squid and the Whale” which was directed by Noah Baumbaugh.
