I am not a R&B kinda guy, it has to be said. But the other day I happened to see a live performance of a hip Aussie band called the Hipstones playing in Union Square Park. A terrific live performance that made me want to shake my groove thang. They are now based in NYC and are playing again soon at Joe's Pub on August 4th, 7:00 sharp it says on their site. Which is good for me. Anyway, check it out if you like that sort of thing. They were good, even with a bunch of New Yorkers sitting there looking too cool, wishing they could dance. If you're lucky, perhaps they will do their funky version of Benny and the Jets.
