Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

Nels! Saw him at Roulette earlier this year, with Zeena Parkins, great show!
Avatar 3:36pm david w:

This recording is that show, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm doctorjazz:

This is! Acoustic guitar Nels, something you don't hear often. Went with my daughter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm doctorjazz:

Spoke to Nels afterwards (he's a good friend of a good friend), very sweet guy.
Avatar 3:39pm david w:

Cool daughter.

Loving this!

yes, steveo, passing on the good word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm doctorjazz:

I can drag her to interesting shows, she mostly likes them. I did take her once to The City Winery to hear Nels sitting I with Sex Mob...Nels and the crew were reallywild that night, she didn't like that show AT ALL!
Avatar 3:44pm david w:

Glad to please, ifny in garden. Unexpected Nels.
Avatar 3:45pm david w:

@djazz, maybe it was the venue?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm doctorjazz:

Maybe, I like Roulette...(but I suspect the electric aggressive dissonance of Sex Mob +Cline had more to do with it...The old City Winery was a pretty nice venue too...and had lots of wines to lubricate the visit).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm doctorjazz:

This show was more dreamy.

Dropping by, hope all are staying healthy
Avatar 4:23pm david w:

Schell You too! So far, some hurtful stuff, but locally intact.
  4:24pm ruth:

Wow this is reminding me of the El Greco Ascension! We had a copy of it done by an art student in the Prado in our hallway when I was very young . I was so scared of it I would run past it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm fred:

I enjoyed this Mary Prescott piece
  4:25pm ruth:

So far so good Schell thanks for asking
  4:26pm Che Chen:

This Jamie Branch show was the last concert I attended before lockdown. El Greco is heavy! just saw some in person for the first time this winter.
  4:28pm ruth:

This is lovely. Glad you got to hear it live Che.
Avatar 4:29pm david w:

The Prescott stuff I have heard is always pushing for the deep connection. Interesting young artist.
Avatar 4:31pm david w:

Jaimie Branch played this set knowing that is was the end, for now.
  4:32pm Che Chen:

She always plays like it's her last show on earth, but yeah, there was some extra fire that night.

Watching the YouTube version on mute w/ the Ridgewood Radio soundtrack. Wow x 10.
  4:36pm JakeGould:

Sooo! Good!

To be clear, this was the last show on 12 March 20 before Roulette (and all NYC spots) was shuttered. Everybody knew, but didn't know...
