What You May Have Missed: Laura Warshauer at The Bowery Ballroom

Laura Warshauer: May 1, 2012 @ The Bowery Ballroom, New York, NY 

This past Tuesday, singer/songwriter Laura Warshauer took the stage at The Bowery Ballroom.  Warshauer, a tiny, effervescent lady breezed through a six-song set that left those in attendance charmed and wanting more.  Three songs in, she played "Wishing Well" which was, judging by audience response, a crowd favorite; my personal favorite was "Will You Remember Me".  With a slightly scratchy voice that gave her a bit of an edgy sound, there were moments in the set where it seemed like she was on the edge of tumbling into full-on rock chick.  

Warshauer was joined onstage by Kiara Ana Perico (violin), whom I could barely see from my vantage point thanks to the keyboard apparatus of the nights headliner Bob Schneider, and Calle Lehmann (guitar).  As someone seeing Warshauer perform for the first time, I was happy that she's the kind of performer that made you feel like you've known her all along.  Check out a clip of her closing number "Rockstar" at the bottom of the post.
