I went to see the Fiery Furnaces play a duo show at Rockwood the other night. They were fantastic, but I always love to audience-watch as well.

Last night, I went to see David Bezmozgis, Jack Dishel, and Regina Spektor perform at the Housing Works Bookstore. Spektor and Dishel sang, and all three of them read passages from Bezmozgis’s new book “The Free World.”

It was a late show for the bookstore, with the performance not scheduled to start until 10pm, but despite that, and despite the rain, the house was still packed. I’m only half Russian (and that part is really Russian-Polish, if you want to be precise), and I’m not an immigrant, but I always like listening to stories about the immigrant experience to this country. I feel fortunate to have grown up here, to have had, and to have taken for granted, the life that so many people come here for. When they asked how many Russians were in the audience, the majority of the hands shot up into the air.

I think that’s why I love this town.

Last week I attended the May edition of the How I Learned reading series and took some photos which are now available for your perusal on the Internet. Unfortunately, my photo set does not come with an audio track, which is sad because this month was a particularly funny show about “How I Learned About Sex (Volume II).”

I guess you’ll just have to come next month which promises to be another hilarious show (though not about sex).

People get happy when they listen to classical music. The Salon97 listening parties prove that.
