Relentless 7


I went to a concert Tuesday night! Woohooo!! My last one was in November for Girl Talk. I can’t believe it’s been 3 months since seeing a live show (Elmo Makes Music DOES NOT COUNT!) I went to see Relentless 7. I’m not sure if it’s Ben Harper’s side band or just another project. It was at Highline Ballroom, the first time at the venue. It was a pretty decent venue, although the entrance area is a little bit cramped. But no bag check! And the venue was cool throughout the whole night! I was actually a little chilly! That never happens! It was pretty small, I would say roughly the same size as Mercury Lounge but with the stage on the long side of a rectangle instead of the short end. We haven’t been that close to Ben since I got kicked out of his show at Bowery Ballroom. Anyway, it was LOUD!! I was resisting putting some tissue in my ears and then Joy told me to put my headphones in. I truly think that saved my hearing! Thank you Joy! The band went on aroun 9:15 after an introduction by Matt Pinfield and Leslie Frann from RXP (a station I love, BTW!) They played until about 10:30 and came out for 1 encore where they sang Under Pressure. It was an awesome show!!
