diane birch @ roosevelt island

best summer outdoor concert: diane birch at roosevelt island. away from the fray of summerstage and south street seaport (shar was there yesterday for bmsr), the riverwalk commons at roosevelt island hosts a quaint venue for free tunes as part of roosevelt l!ve. not too crowded and plenty of grass to park it.

bonus: you can get a bucket of beers to enjoy with your tunes. one of the fews spots in the city where they don't crack down on you for the alchie consumption.

diane's vocals harken back to old female vocalists of yonder, namely carole king for me. jenn thought karen carpenter. listen to her set for wxpn and you be the judge.

thanks jenn for snapping this pic of diane and i. she was quite obliging. i asked if her album was on vinyl and she said soon. she was excited to have it pressed. good answer.

I like this chick- it's not just a good voice over flimsy song writing- the songs are great too.
