Thanks, TONY! April Sideshow Goshko

We love Time Out New York! Big thanks to TONY for the shout-out for April's Sideshow Goshko. You don't need a tax return to enjoy this Thursday's show. Always FREE, always at a Soviet Bar. And be sure to stop by and hear Kerri Doherty before she heads off to LA to start work on The Goldbergs. That's right, the TV show.

A Huge "Thank You" and Soon-To-Happen Again!

Wow, it is with great humility and thanks that I share this "thank you" post. We sold out Cornelia Street Cafe with standing room only. I was and am so overwhelmed by everyone who came out to Saturday's piano party. I got to see people I haven't seen in years along with new friends and people I hold so dear. We're already in talks about doing another one. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all so much for coming to the show and making me feel so loved and supported. Now, I'm taking the day off from practicing xo
