There was a lot of buzz about these guys. A LOT. God Street Wine, popular in NYC in the 90’s and played often at The Wetlands, had 2 weekends filled with four incredibly well received shows in July. Never seeing them before, I did not know much more then “these guys are great, you’ll love them”, and as fate would have it I got a free ticket. These reunion shows were put on as a benefit for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
The first weekend, at The Gramercy was packed with people. The crowd was 40-ish, and everyone was pumped up to see these guys.
Words don’t do justice as pictures and video. Enjoy the ride. I had a blast.
