I like to give a little Western Mass love where Western Mass love is due. And though -- like any true New Yorker -- I tend to disavow my suburban roots, there's no doubt that my place of birth is home to some truly talented individuals.
Case in point: Singer-songwriter Jamie Kent (see photo).
Jamie and his band are taking on The Living Room tonight, hitting the stage around 9:30 PM for a free concert that is sure to blend the jazz and rock beats from his latest album The Neoteny.
By the way, according to Jamie, there are 171 Starbucks in Manhattan alone. Last weekend, he and a group of fans secretly planted his CDs in every single one of those locations and turned it into this video.
