Did you catch that Scott Thompson will be gracing the venue with his presence at the end of the month with Lea DeLaria and Sandra Bernhard? So Over The Rainbow… will feature stand-up, musical performances, and characterizations celebrating Gay Pride. Now, here at the LPR office, we are huge nerds, and one thing we sure
…One of the best parts of working in live music is that every day you get to work with people who deeply care about what they’re doing. As obvious as it might sound, this is something pretty rare in the realm of adulthood and day jobs. Regardless of the preferred genre, we’re all obsessed with
One of my favorite shows was one that was hard to see. Rhye, a band that likes to keep itself in an opaque shroud of mystery, recently showed up to a sold-out crowd at LPR. In an effort to maintain a certain sense of mystique, the show was lit almost entirely by candlelight. With the…
Atoms for Peace playing “Amok” at LPR
Watching Thom Yorke and Nigel was a serious trip. Magical, even? They worked with each other, worked with the audience, yet were simultaneously all in their own world. I don’t know if I will ever experience something like that in such an intimate setting ever again.

With everything epic, there is an imminent collision of past and future embedded in the mythology. This is especially true in cities where layers of robust history rest at the foot of long-standing architectural structures, this juxtaposition itself creating a…
3 years ago I started my journey in a little basement in the Greenwich Village called (le) poisson rouge. What I’ve gained from being involved in such interesting & eclectic programming is truly invaluable (this is an understatement).
The history of this space alone makes me feel humbled to step foot in the building…

The beautiful thing about seeing Damian Abraham run at you in all his sweaty, hairy, red-faced glory is that it doesn’t seem dangerous or scary at all. It’s life affirming and inspiring. It’s inclusive in a way that can’t be replicated in any other medium. In a way that makes you feel like seeing Fucked…
Here are a few of my all time favorite shows of the past five years at LPR:
…Living Colour, Fishbone, Dr. John, Fucked Up, Pentagram, Chilly Gonzales, John Brion, Boris, Brother Josephus and the Love Revival Revolution, Urban Sun, Baby Brother, The Life and Times Of, Villacoma and literally anything that includes Murray Hill.
We dig this clever poster designed by Red Scandal Graphics for Monday’s benefit for Oklahoma tornado victims live at LPR. The night will feature a wide range of amazing performers including Becca Tobin & Derek Klema of Glee, Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors, & many more. Get your tickets now… to support this important
…It has been an amazing five-year journey up to this point! We are all so proud of what we have accomplished and the shows we have hosted. Top 10 shows is almost impossible and I know I am missing some great ones. Some of my personal favorites:
MONO with Wordless Orchestra/Arvo Part - It
The past 4+ years I have spent working at LPR have been incredible. Challenging, astounding, bonding, and most of all, constantly changing.
The diversity of the musical line-ups, week to week, allowed me to explore things I would never discover on my own. Steve Reich’s haunting pieces, Doveman’s ethereal and intimate in-the-round shows, the…

I have worked at LPR for about a year and some change now. It’s my first home, away from home (being the Pacific NW). The music ranges from late night European house music to acoustic folk, with many great humanitarian benefits in between.

After working here for the better part of LPR’s 5 years, I’ve seen more shows than I could ever count. To be honest, many of them blur together, be that because of strong bartender pours, the shear quantity, or time passed. But for all shows
Caleb Burhans has graced our stage easily 100+ times over the past five years, so it goes without saying that we’re all very excited for his show this Saturday as a part of LPR X 5. The night will be opened up with his project itsnotyouitsme, followed by Alarm Will Sound performing his compositions.

I really can’t believe it has been five years! It is only when I take some time to reflect on how much le Poisson Rouge has evolved and how many great shows I have seen that it makes a bit more sense.
NPR Music… filmed the intimate, candle-lit set from Rhye at LPR on April 17th. The duo appeared as sextet and performed in the shadows. Take a look below.

10. Signal performing Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, Sept. 14-15, 2008.
We’ve presented most of Steve Reich’s major works at LPR by now — Drumming, Piano Phase, Different Trains, New York Counterpoint, Sextet, Double Sextet, You Are (Variations), WTC 9/11 — but this was
On the occasion of our fifth anniversary, co-founders David Handler and Justin Kantor reflect on the goals of LPR and where it comes from, while musicians Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto), Marc Ribot, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), Matthew Dear, and DJ Rekha talk about what has made LPR a special and vibrant hub for art in New…
Guess what? Mack’s back.
Rory Culkin held down the iPod for a couple months here at the Gallery at LPR while Mack was away, but Mack is back for a special edition of Macaulay Culkin’s iPod… for LPR X 5 (LPR’s fifth anniversary celebration).
What’s the theme this time? The kitchen sink, every theme Macaulay
In the most recent episode of WQXR’s “Q2 Spaces…,” Jherek Bischoff gives a tour of his childhood home, which happens to be a 37-foot sailboat boat, as well as his current Seattle apartment, which happens to be filled with quite a few instruments. “I’ve always worked with very little but didn’t let that stop
