Meshell at Grand 275

Patrons of Carmen Grau and Mark Chung’s Grand 275 were stunned last night by the news that the well-loved neighborhood hang will be shutting its doors on Friday, so Meshell Ndegeocello’s appearance there was welcome but bittersweet. She lent her talents in tribute to the popular gathering place with an intimate, but rocking set of about seven songs. Her fantastic vocals were backed by Jason on keys and the two Marks on drums and bass.

Tonight, Toshi Reagon will be blowing up the spot in salute and farewell to her favorite haunt.

DJ Bill Brown a Grand 275 mainstay, rocked the crowd (and a Red Coles tee) before Meshell’s set.

  1. Very cool photo 🙂

  2. This saddens me for a few reasons.

    1. I’ve only been to Grand 275 a handful of times but every time was a beautiful experience. Good people and good vibes.

    2. Meshell Ndegeocello is an all time favorite and to know I missed an intimate performance like that just bums me out.

    3. While all good things must come to an end, some things should just remain because a place like Grand 275 fills a void of creativity and soul that is ever present in out NYC.

    Oh well… Onward.
