Backstage with Leighton Meester at Hotel Cafe

Leighton Meester performed the second night of her three night residency at Hotel Cafe to a sold out house on Tuesday night in support of her recently released full length Heartstrings. We spent the afternoon with Meester and her band while they rehearsed the songs for their special acoustic set they debuted later in the evening. She'll return to Hotel Cafe with the electric set on January 27th for the final night of the residency. Dana Williams opened the show and joined Leighton on stage to cover Chris Bell’s “You and Your Sister.” Grace Weber was in town this week to close out the evening on a strong note.
