Buster is Such a Doll….

Posted by  on

Last night was crazy amazing and such a lot of fun. My great friend Suzanne and I went to see David Johansen perform as his alter ego Buster Poindexter at ‘At The Tabernacle in Mt Tabor,’ New Jersey and man, what a great gig! He has been such a great influence in music for so long and it was brilliant to see him now, ever evolving and performing like the icon he is. It is crazy how many faces one man can wear and remain true to himself! The gig was really splendid and his band played so, so, so well. He looks so incredibly different from his days in the New York dolls, and I have to say just seeing him on stage (even as his alter ego) brought back memories of the ‘70s and all the wild stuff that went down in New York. I had met him many times over the years even though we weren’t hanging out in the same set I always thought he was a very cool guy. On top of what was a first rate show, the atmosphere added to it by the venue, which is so intimate and evocative (an old Victorian Methodist Tabernacle run by the lovely George Philhower) made it a marvellous music night out. George gives his artists a wonderful easy-going time before and after their performance. The dinner meals are catered and last night’s food didn’t fail. They even had my favourite, Chicken Francese. Yum. Suzanne and I said hello briefly to David and his now wife Mara Hennesey, after the show as we started to pick at the desserts. We didn’t stay to chat as every one was rushing off to other places but it is always nice to say ‘hi’!

Anyway, I would recommend you all go see Buster Poindexter as he is a true polymath and a very talented musical chameleon. He will be performing at the Hotel Carlyle in NY for 3 nights this coming week.

 Saying hello to former ABC NY Meteorologist, Bill Evans, @WPLJReunion last night. He’s now @WLNG 92FM out in the Hamptons.  Dessert: Shaved Ice @PigandKhao on the lower east side with @thelaravee, Christopher Singh and Maria Singh. So full...  Last night @irvingplaza in NYC, I went to see Mike Peters and The Alarm with opening act Ryan Hamilton, who was fun to watch as a one man band. He had the audience in his corner. Mike and his band came out blazing. Everyone sang with Mike all night. Just a fab night all around. My son was born during the making of the Change album. So it was a great reunion. #TheAlarm #theryanhamilton
 @chaseedwardsgallery ... come by if you want something to do June 15th.  A quick catch up with Ashley Davie before he headed back to Birmingham. Have to make the trip longer next time and I’m glad he got to see The Met exhibit Play It Loud.  What a great surprise to run into Debora Francis while I was having a meeting with Hillary @duggalnyc to discuss my upcoming photo show in Bridgehampton.
 Pinball Wizard - The Who with full orchestra. #TheWho #MSG  A break for an easy afternoon lunch to catch up.  In mid-town NYC with Andrew Loog Oldham and his lovely wife, Esther.
