We were there: Nervous but Excited

Photographs by Syd London

When the adorable band Nervous but Excited played NYC on Friday, they performed not one, not two, but three times! The first set was at the headquarters of the Young Adult Initiative (YAI), the second was a fund-raiser for YAI at the Living Room, then another regular set later that night at the Living Room. Whew! This was a great chance for New Yorkers to catch the out lesbian duo of Kate Peterson and Sarah Cleaver (who have been championed by no less than the Indigo Girls' Amy Ray) in such intimate settings before they hit the bigger time, an inevitability thanks to their sunny, catchy tunes, as well as their upcoming collaboration with comedy star Margaret Cho. Keep your eyes on TONY for more on these delightful Midwesterners.
