Review: Despite a run-in with the police, the New York-based quartet keeps things cheerful during the local stop of their tour.

The Felice Brothers had plenty of cause for low morale on Friday night, yet their spirit and energy hit a climactic high by the end of their show at the Westcott Theater.  

The band of four, who travels by Winnebago, had been pulled over by police within yards of the venue and issued seven tickets (for what exactly, they didn't specify). Consequently, The Felice Brothers kicked off their set about an hour and a half past the original 9 p.m. start time.

The Washington, D.C.-based band makes a connection with the Syracuse crowd.

Last night at 10 p.m., a restless crowd cheered as Vertical Horizon finally appeared onstage under the blue spotlights of the quaint Westcott Theater.

Dressed in jeans and black T-shirts, lead vocalist and guitarist Matt Scannell, backing vocalist and guitarist Keith Kane, and bass guitarist Corey McCormick strapped on their guitars and drummer Jason Sutter struck the first notes of what would be great show.

Indie-pop singer, songwriter and musician Annie Clark makes her way to Ithaca in October.

If you don't know who St. Vincent is, get acquainted. She's coming to Ithaca on Oct. 22. 

St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark and her supporting band, are an electric live band. I was lucky enough to catch Annie Clark perform over the summer at the 2009 All Points West Festival in Liberty Park, NJ, and I underestimated her big-time. With Jimi Hendrix guitar skills, and sultry vocals, Annie Clark is a stead-fast rising star.
