Bodh’aktan in Concert (9/19/2013)

One of the greatest things about the music scene in NYC is that it’s the music scene in NYC and that pretty much means that on any given night, in any given region you can enjoy a wide variety of live music that often leaves you screaming for more. Yes, we do have some of the most awesome places to see a live performance and I am not just speaking about the big venues and concert arenas but I am also talking about the smaller clubs and bars that go the extra mile and let us enjoy something new for sometimes as low as $8 to get in. In this economy that is a very good thing because its the same price as a pint of beer. That said, I recently had the chance to check out a showcase set by the band Bodh’aktan who hail from Quebec and were performing in a place called Connolly’s Bar and Restaurant in the heart of Times Square. You can check out the full on concert narrative and all the photos by clicking the bands logo below, but then do please come back here as I have snagged some videos and side images that you will only easily find presented here.

When one describes music as Progressive, the term can be used very broadly and very widely. Often the results are something quite interesting. Today I am using Toronto residents “Enter The Haggis” as an example who mix Celtic styles and instruments with Rock music. The end result is a whole lot of fun and the other day when the NY Caledonian Society hosted an event that would tie up at the Knitting Factory the fun continued. The Society was celebrating “Tartan Week” a big festival and appreciation of their Scottish culture and to make it a night worth remembering the organizer brought “Enter The Haggis” down from their native Canada.
