Live at TONY: Elizabeth and the Catapult

Improvisation is a key element of our Live at TONY series, and frankly, we wouldn't have it any other way. The three members of Elizabeth and the Catapult were running late to their taping earlier this week, and rather than waste precious minutes stopping by their rehearsal space, they simply fished a keyboard out of the Dumpster, procured a carton of percussive rice from the convenience store across the street and headed up to our offices to perform. As you'll see, the band had no trouble adjusting to its makeshift implements. For more NYC music coverage, visit
