I went to Le Figaro Café last night in the West Village to see my friend’s bellydance performance. She was last and great. I’ve seen it before, and I’m amazed at how good she is. There were 2 dancers before her and the band played continuously, even when there was no formal dancer. The band was great. I hear it varies, but last night there was a violin, 2 doubeks and Scott Wilson playing his homemade oud/guitar/something else instrument. I think he’s consistently there every week. It was heavy on the drums, which I love, and a lot of fun.
