The International House Concert Network - Live In Your Living Room organizes tons of artists to play in different venues, sort of like a living room to play live music! For this years Live In Your Living Room NYC Festival, they are featuring one of Holland's emerging artist alongside a local NYC artist to play.

The CitizenM Times Sqaure Cloud Bar does have that living room vibe which is very cozy and very intimate to see a live music. It has a long couch on both sides and at the end is the bar and around you is the floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the midtown skyline view. Unfortunately, that night it was super cold in the city and so we just enjoyed the view from the comfort of their couch. 
*Cloud Bar is only for hotel guests only. You can enjoy foods and drinks at their lobby which is another beautiful area. Great to unwind after work or grab food and drinks before a show.

Rachel Sage, singer/songwriter here in NY started the night with a few of her own songs.

For this years event one of Holland's own Ruud Houwelling, from the band Cloudmachine - who have won the Popular Vote of The American Independent Music Awards in Indie/Rock sang for the second half of the night.

And for my date for the night, my partner-in-beauty-crime Faith Roxas of !!! We needed some girl-talk time and just to relax after a long day, so what's a great way to spend the night by listening to live music!
