Steel Train Live at Bowery Electric 08-26 Review and Photos

Rich Russo’s “Anything, Anything” hosted a show on August 26, 2010 at the Bowery Electric. The lineup included Wildlife and Max is King who opened for Steel Train. After being a concert addict since I was 15, many shows deem unmemorable but the show Steel Train put on last Thursday was the kind that warms your heart and soul. Never to be forgotten.

The weather was the perfect summers ending in New York weather, a great night to hear some live music. The streets of the lower east side were filled with people enjoying the moment. The Bowery Electric was pretty empty at our arrival but some of the members of Wildlife and Max is King were roaming around. It was a very small, intimate setting with dim lighting, candles and music in the background. The calm, serene setting was quickly ended the second Wildlife took charge.

The young band rocked the stage their punk sound and teen angst energy. The singer, had the moves of Mick Jagger with the edge of Joey Ramone, he really got the small crowd pumped. He danced all over the stage and at times made his way to floor of it, singing with lots of drama. The band members, each made their way into the crowd at one point to share the vibe with everyone there. When their time was up, and the music stopped, I realized how unbelievably loud Wildlife was. I am sure I speak for everyone when I say, my ears felt like they were going to bleed. The time between sets went fairly quick since the same equipment more or less was used for each band.

Exclusive Photos From Alejandro Escovedo Show At Bowery Electric.

On July 21st 2010, “Anything, Anything” hosted Alejandro Escovedo at the Bowery Electric in New York City. The event which was written up in Rolling Stone Magazine was completely sold out.

In his post to, editor David Fricke had this to say:

The rock and camaraderie of Alejandro Escovedo’s July 21st show at Bowery Electric in New York, a half-block north of what used to be CBGB, would have been right at home in that old gone room. Escovedo, who had taped an appearance on Late Show With David Letterman earlier in the day, was promoting his new album, Street Songs of Love, backed by his current road group the Sensitive Boys. The concert was presented by “Anything, Anything,” a weekly free-form program on New York’s WRXP. (The show, hosted by Rich Russo, airs Sundays at 9 p.m.)
