It's a great night to be a New Yorker!
Especially if you were one of the few hundred who attended Hennessy and Hot 97's Artistry NYC event Thursday night at SOB's!
Peter Rosenberg and Angie Martinez served as the night's hosts, while songstress Wynter Gordon and rapper XV opened the show for Travie McCoy.
Poison Ivy interviewed McCoy almost four years ago - we were working at our college paper and talked to McCoy's band Gym Class Heroes on the cusp of their success - so it was exciting to see him branch out and flourish!
Check out McCoy's performance of "We'll Be Alright," sampling Supergrass' "Alright," above.

Lady Antebellum played a riotous two hour show at New York's Beacon Theater Tuesday night!
We can't remember the last time we had so much fun at a show!!
The Nashville trio rocked a slew of jams for the NYC crowd, including "American Honey," "Stars Tonight," "Need You Now" and a cover of Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me."
"How'd they get so many country fans in New York City?" vocalist Charles Kelley pondered.
The wildly talented David Nail opened for LA, making jokes to the audience about his opening slot.
"I ain't too proud to ride some coat tails," he laughed.
Even Kevin Jonas showed up to watch the party!
Check out our compilation video, above.

Monday night was our first time checking out Aussie rockers The Temper Trap, who serenaded some 200 fans at P.C. Richard & Son Theater in Tribeca.
TTT played a beautiful and hypnotic set, including "Sweet Disposition," "Down River," and "Love Lost," which was peppered with quite a few sound malfunctions!
Check out a snippet of that performance, accompanied by a little spat between frontman Dougy Mandagi and the sound engineer (at the 00:38 mark), above.
"I’m jumping around so people don’t find out how moderate I am," Timberlake told reporters, of his delve into film and enterprise.
"I didn’t want people to find out I wasn’t the best singer, so I became an actor."
