After an 18-month break, Ipanema Cafe’s popular and unique performance series Live at Ipanema returned on November 4, 2012, with a set by Chris Ryan. Recorded by Allen Bergendahl, 7 songs from that night are now available for your listening pleasure, along with photos of Chris Ryan and Brian Cruse by PJ Sykes.
Next up on the Live at Ipanema calendar is Ocean Versus Daughter, on Sunday, December 2 (10PM FREE). Virginia-native Flanna Sheridan founded Ocean Versus Daughter in Prague, making music described by the Philadelphia City Paper as “dreamy but never droney [...] really good at the achingly beautiful thing”. After 8 years of life in the Czech Republic, she moved back to the U.S. in June 2012 and is currently touring the country.
Live at Ipanema is a free live performance series at Ipanema Cafe. The shows by local and regional artists are recorded and photographed, and then shared online. The band gets a high-quality recording and professional photography, and everyone else gets a great evening of music.
