Or, Catching Up With Mike C.'s Camera. Finally had the chance to go through the photos from shows I've been to over the last month. All apologies for not getting these up sooner.
AJ Azzarto and The Hoboken Five at The Goldhawk, Hoboken, July 6
Frank Sinatra's granddaughter fearlessly tackles The Great American Songbook with aplomb, backed by her smart quintet. The intimate back room of The Goldhawk suits her style to a T, so it's good that she plays there pretty regularly. Unmissable, every time.

"I'm rockin' like The Clash/It's acoustic kinda meanery/I'm as bad as Nine Inch Nails/Except I don't need machinery."
Dave's True Story at The Brennan Courthouse, Jersey City, June 17
Hey Webster's, put this photo next to your definition of "cool."
Tris McCall at The Brennan Courthouse, Jersey City, June 17
All the news that's fit to sing.
Skanatra at Sinatra Park, Hoboken, June 11
The rockingest rock-steady beat of Hoboken.
You might forget your manners: Erni "The Other Kid From Hoboken" Contri gets into the act with the Skanatra boys.
