Very hard for me to make this one on account of work; not likely. Much more likely to make a December duo show co-billed with Over the Rhine, but not sure which one yet. Are you local or visiting?

I´m from Germany, so visiting. ^^

Was in NYC in February to see the second Cafe Vivaldi show, and i´m now making the trip again, staying for 8 days this time.

Do you have any recommendations for shows or concerts from the 19.-27. of August?

Linus,
Here is one possible source: http://events.publicbroadcasting.net/wf ... eventsmain
I am not going to shows during this period because of an extra-busy work schedule.
By the way, there was a German visitor sitting in front of me at my first Vienna Teng show, in Mamaroneck, NY, outside New York city. I was surprised. Vienna must have a large German following.
I hope you have an excellent visit and enjoy Vienna's show.
All the best,
Fred

8/19 Bess Rogers, Leila Broussard, Rockwood Music Hall
8/21 Amber Rubarth, Joe's Pub; The Rescues, Canal Room; Priscilla Ahn, Bowery Ballroom
8/23 Adam Levy, Rockwood
8/24 Britney Spears, MSG (kidding...); Freedy Johnston, The Living Room; KC & The Sunshine Band, B.B. King Blues Club
8/25 Collective Soul, Fillmore; Counting Crows, Hammerstein
8/27 Noe Venable, Rockwood

I took this all from Pollstar and Rockwood's page. Probably BrooklynVegan would also be a good place to check. nycconcertlist has stuff listed in Jersey, like Ari Hest on 8/21.

You're gonna tape all these shows for us, right? :lol: Have fun, really wish I was going.

I miss this song. I think the last time I heard her play it live was a few years ago.

Dang, missed Watershed. [Edited: By which I mean I wasn't there to hear it. Couldn't make this show for work reasons. That may not have been clear.] Somehow figured it would be you posting this list, Chris. Take care.

set list addition...maybe?...not really

Postby Folkfan » Sat Aug 22, 2009 4:14 pm

Hello Chris......

Sorry I did not see you in the crowd, I definitely would have said hello. Thanks for posting the set list.

I wanted to suggest adding the little bit of song she played, but I don't know what it is called...I guess it's not really much of a song, it's only a snippet of a song she played, just before City Hall....you know...(early piano lesson music?)the bit of a song she was playing to stall, while Alex rigged up the axillary snare drum, after his broke? Vienna explained it as her grade school way to flirt with boys besides comparing how big their hands are, as compared to hers.

There were so many wonderful, humorous moments between songs at this show, I loved them all.
The only thing that wasn't great, was sitting at the next table, next to the drunk guy, who kept shouting..."HARBOR!HARBOR!HARBOR!CITYHALL!CITYHALL!", even after Vienna acknowledged that she would play the songs, and he clapped a bit out of rhythm and through the ends of songs.

Good to hear from you Folkfan and Fred. :D

We'll have to do "roll calls" prior to NYC-area concerts, especially at shows with table service.

Next up: Dec. 5, Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, Old Saybrook, CT, with Over the Rhine. Bought tickets today. We are planning on making a New England weekend of it, staying in a B&B, etc. (I can't make the Tarrytown show for work/school/kid/spouse reasons altho I'd like to see some show there sometime--it's supposed to be a great venue.) Hope to see lots of NY/New England fans at Old Saybrook. It looks like a beautiful restored historic theatre, just the kind of venue I like. (BTW I was not at the Highline show. My previous post was confusing I see & I edited it above.)
