Thirty years ago, I managed a rock band in NYC and had them playing every Friday and Saturday, a different venue for every gig, living in my Honda CRX most weekends. Sadly, those days of endless LIVE-act venues no longer exist so it's comforting to...More

As the East End has become much more of a year-round community, the Talkhouse benefits. Great Acts, easy access, online tickets and a friendly staff. Summer is too, too much of a scene when the young, house-share-types converge, however post-Labour Day it's great for everyone...More

This place is the best. Intimate, small casual. Great musical guests. So small it really allows the performer to develop a relationship with the audience. Young, old, this place is great if you love music. And it always has an interesting lineup of artists.

I went to see Nancy Atlas at the Talkhouse last weekend. Nancy Atlas is the secret of a perfect night out in the Hamptons. Find the places she is playing, plan your night around it, and everyone will be happy. The Talkhouse is the home...More

Other than to have checked the place out, it was a painful experience. It was loaded up with white haired people hoping to hold on to their youth by listening to a far past his prime Leon Russell, who tried to mask the loss of...More
