Last Saturday @ 255Canal

In our latest live music experience at 255Canal, improvisation and spontaneity opened room to an evening of  simultaneous experiences. The  audience was absorbed by the intimacy of the space,  Leah Seigel’s melodies  and the tunes of Achilles Kallergis Quintet.

This special evening was once more triggered by LiYLR (Live in Your Living Room), a concept from the Netherlands that is now also based in NYC thanks to the collaboration of Kenichi Yoshioka.

If you are interested in hosting a music event in your living room, please contact:

There was time for some great laughs with comedian Adam Strauss, the sweetness of TotallyWicked cupcakes and the closure of Rita Sa Entangled exhibition.

Thank you for the great evening. Hope you all enjoyed it.
