    Gina Cimmelli & Gina’s Picture Show are a great band I have seen often. Singer/songwriter Gina and band members Jeni Magana, Mat Weber, Mat Coser & Stoddy Blackall put on a great show. They are playing Arlene’s Grocery, 95 Stanton St. NYC this month. If you are in the neighborhood come look them up Mondays @ 8PM. Gina’s song Don’t Be Mad is a favorite & you can listen to it on Berklee Podcasts with Adam Ollen too.
