    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.

    reCAP :: The Word w/ Kung Fu :: 2014.05.01

    Magic Happens! That’s the only way to explain the feeling one gets listening to musicians of exceptional talent perform live. That was what was felt when The Word, John Medeski (organ), Robert Randolph (pedal steel guitar), brothers Cody (drums) and Luther Dickinson (guitars) and Chris Chew (bass) first toured in the early 2000s, the first time anyone had heard Randolph play outside of churches.

    reCAP :: Phil Lesh & Friends :: 2014.04.12

    Phil Lesh and his friends had set the bar very high with the previous outstanding seven shows on this run at The Cap. It seemed the run kept building and building getting better with each show. It was hard pressed to find anyone that did not share this view.

    Deadheads in the NYC region have always been shown love from the driving forces of the scene. Whether it be the Grateful Dead’s extensive east coast tours or the continuation of that ritual in the post Garcia world with marquees that now read Ratdog, Phil and Friends, Mickey Hart Band, or Furthur, there isn’t much room to complain as someone who lives in the greater NYC area. Pete Shapiro’s deal with Phil Lesh has shown 2014 will not be labeled as an exception.

The expectation from everyone in attendance was another amazing evening of surprises.
