Alternative Guitar Festival at Rockwood Music Hall Reviewed


Standard guitars weren’t the only stringed things heard on opening night of the Alternative Guitar Festival, a three-night series that started Friday at Rockwood Music Hall on the Lower East Side as part of the New York Guitar Festival. It was a concert that posited instrument as inspiration: the physicality of the instruments was at the heart of the music.
