The set from our last show with The Scene is up!  Our suggestion was “danger zone.”  What appropriate timing since the following day we watched Top Gun on the flight deck of the Intrepid!

Stay tuned for upcoming show updates!

Belated thanks!

Hosting our first show on Tuesday night was a success (thankfully)!  We had an awesome & supportive audience despite the rain (downpour).  We can’t thank the duos that performed with us enough, so shout outs to:  Junkyard Tramp (who had a really impressive debut performance), LYLAS and The Andrews Sisters (pictured below).

I’m not sure what to do about the video of our set because it’s a touch longer than the YouTube 15min upload max.  Hmmm, maybe I will have to branch out to vimeo…

We don’t have another show lined up yet, but we will let you know once we do!  :)

Join shiny for an evening of dynamic improvisation duos at The Tank (354 w. 45th St. NYC). TONIGHT (Tues, April 12th) @9:30pm. Only $5!

Featuring LYLAS, The Andrews Sisters and the debut performance of Junkyard Tramp! :)

Hope to see you there!
