    This night was a FANTASTIC success!! All three bands turned in exciting, high-energy sets, and the audience came out in strong numbers (243, just shy of a sell-out crowd of 250!). After the 3-hour concert, it was a great time continuing the meetup nearby at Katz's Deli, with the audience and the musicians themselves having the chance to hang out with each other. THANK YOU to the NYC Live Music Meetup group for making this night a big success, and a milestone event at a legendary, world-famous rock club. Looking forward to the next one! More please :-)

    THE AFTER-PARTY! Following the event, all three bands will be headed next door to KATZ's DELI for the AFTERPARTY. All Meetup Members are welcome to join them! (We expect a turnout of about[masked] people for the show, so it'll be natural to continue the 'meetup' after the show ends at 10pm). See you there! -- Phil

      Hi Andrea! I'm wondering the same thing... we can go together maybe?

      Hi Andrea and Layla, I'm the assistant organizer who posted this event and I will be there the whole time-- however, I'm also involved in the first performance of the night. You should keep an eye out for David Greene, the group organizer (picture on the left)-- he's very tall and should be easy to spot. After the show, everyone's going to Katz's Deli next door. Looking forward to meeting you. -- Phil

    I'm super-excited to see The Villalobos Brothers perform-- they're true international stars and have played everywhere from The Apollo, to Carnegie Hall, & Shea Stadium... to The Latin Grammys-- This'll be a great night!
