If I Dropped By… with Elaine Romanelli + Show Details

Today, we dropped in on Elaine Romanelli who just released her new album, The Hour Before, this week.  She'll be celebrating its release with a show at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 3 this Saturday, April 25 at 7PM. It'll cost you $10 (full details at the end of our visit).  

We paid her our customary hypothetical visit.  This is what we learned.

Quirky NY Chick (QNYC): … and brought a friend who didn't know your music, what song of yours would you play for them and why?

Elaine Romanelli (ER): Probably '25', because it can apply to most everyone. Feel as vital today as your body allows, value your friends, and, whenever possible, dance with abandon!
