    reCAP :: Chazz Palminteri: A Bronx Tale :: 2014.06.07

    As a local resident of Port Chester and a regular patron of The Capitol Theatre this is my first blog on The Squirrel. Mr. Palminteri pulled off an impressive live rendition of his classic story filled with humor and grace. It wasn’t completely sold out but still obtained a large audience.

    reCAP :: The Strokes :: 2014.05.31

    We document what we’re experiencing by the millisecond so everyone else can see what we’re experiencing by the millsecond, and The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas knew this culture well and voiced it on Saturday, May 31, when he and his iconic took the stage to a boisterously snap-happy, sold-out crowd at The Capitol Theatre. “Everybody got their phones ready?,” he teased. “Why aren’t you looking at me? I’m right here!”

    reCAP :: Phil Lesh & Friends :: 2014.05.30

    This past Friday night, Phil and Friends played for an almost sold out crowd, aged young and old alike, for close to three hours. There were many friendly faces in the crowd, who greeted me with smiles as I walked into the theater. I began to feel that I had “come home” to a place filled with love and acceptance, as is common with a Phil show, and I felt the stressful week fall from my shoulders as I settled in

    reCAP :: Phil Lesh & Friends :: 2014.05.29

    Midway through 2014, it certainly appears as though planned residences on both the west and east coast, are working wonderfully for 74-year-old Phil Lesh. The Grateful Dead bassist returned to the east coast this week for a series of dates that included a Thursday & Friday night run here at the Cap, sandwiched between two gigs at Central Park, with his always rotating cast of musicians compromising Phil Lesh & Friends.

    reCAP :: Death Cab For Cutie w/ Hamilton Leathauser :: 2014.05.22

    On May 22, DCFC played and slayed The Capitol Theatre, performing some 20-tracks over an hour-and-a-half plus set to a sold-out crowd that surprisingly ranged in age from Twilight Saga to those a decade or two shy of their twilight years.

    reCAP :: Dark Star Orchestra :: 2014.05.16

    The old adage rings true, “there is nothing like a Grateful Dead show” and there is no debating that. However, a Dark Star Orchestra show may be the next best thing. There are 324 Grateful Dead cover bands according to www.gratefuldeadtributebands.com but none bring an exemplary Grateful Dead experience better than the energetic outfit originally formed in Chicago over a decade ago.

    reCAP :: Craig Ferguson :: 2014.05.09

    It’s not surprising to read that Craig Ferguson started his career as a punk rock drummer. From the moment the comedian and Late Late Show host came onto the stage of The Capitol Theater Friday night, he was a force you couldn’t take your eyes off of and his often anti-establishment rants scored belly laughs where raised fists might’ve been for him back in the day.

    reCAP :: UMBowl V :: 2014.05.03

    Capitol Theatre attendees were treated with an extraordinary five hours of music with Umphrey’s McGee on Saturday night at the UMBowl V. The previous four UMBowls took place in the band’s hometown of Chicago, but they chose the Capitol Theatre for the initial east coast offering.
