Hour of Charm
But inside, all was well . . .
Amy Gordon's set was her comedy and music on skates which has to be seen to be believed. Video doesn't really do it justice, but it'll do in a pinch.
Rachelle Garniez was also there. Apparently she and Sxip have something planned for MOMA later this summer, keep your eyes peeled for it. Her songs and performance brought the crowd to its feet.
Greg Walloch presented a new piece he's been developing, although what I'm calling "presentation" in his hands is more like a conversation with a friend you didn't know you had. He has this charm, earthy presence and sweetness-with-a-razor-sharp-edge which sort of confounds the distinction between stand-up comedy and story-telling. He's also one of the nicest guys you're ever gonna come across.
