At “The Space” in Frenchtown, NJ

There are certain advantages to our home along the Delaware River. We’re virtually equidistant to New York City and Philly, sitting along a corridor of chromatic river towns like a vein pulsing with creative energy. And there’s plenty of space in between to maintain your connection with the natural world (and disconnect from the digital), whether on the water, on the trails or on the rocks. It’s a pretty special place.

Although reminders of its specialness are not typically necessary, it’s worth standing back and recognizing some glaring ones. For example, an underground show featuring world class musicians with the intimacy afforded by what is essentially a out-of-the-way storage space; a very well-outfitted-for-secret-live-music storage space, but a swanky club in an urban center it is not.

One such show happened last night, featuring a percussion performance by Billy Martin (most notably of Medeski Martin & Wood), and a full band set fronted by Kyp Malone (of TV on the Radio). Not pictured is a performance by three-fifths of Honeychurch.
