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.

 My friend Violet Benny invited me to this dinner tonight at the Natural Gourmet Institute. I’m so excited for this meal. #NGI  Before I left NJ, I was taken to breakfast @Amy’s Omelettes. What a place, great eggs and fabulous server to try and help me narrow down what I should order!  One more thing that Jesse Colin Young gave away tonight...this bag of coffee beans which I can’t wait to try it. #jessecolinyoungcoffee #dsminc #tobibar19 #thecuttingroomnyc
 @beacontheatre for fundraiser concert Love Rocks NYC! Waiting for the great music to start...Will Lee is MD and bandleader.  On my way to Monmouth University for a talk with Kenneth Womack. Should be a fun night. Ken talking about Sir George. Martin and me...well...can you guess???  Listening to stories by Jesse Colin Young at The Cutting Room. Feels like the old record days watching him speak. Can’t wait to see him perform. #jesseColinYoung #theyoungbloods #maypang
 Went down to the retail store that sells Nest Candles. I love their giant size diffusers. I won’t be running out of this stuff any time soon! The store is located on 252 Elizabeth Street in NYC if anyone wants to pick up some great smelling fragrance candles.  Here’s a motley crew. We were all at The Cutting Room for a one man play called 3 Egg Creams starring Vince Bandille. This play was inspired by & featuring the music of Lou Christie. Nice way to spend my Valentine’s Day. Left to right: Lou C, Ron (Lou’s drummer), Billy J Kramer, Q104.3 DJ Ken Dashow, me, Eddie & David Brigati (The Young Rascals & Joey Dee & the Starlighters.)  Tobi and I are at the Laurence and Chico Fashion Runway for their Fall/Winter 2019 collection. It’s packed here at Pier 59 at 2pm!
