Staten Island's own Ingrid Michaelson performed on her home turf Saturday, September 22, 2012, to benefit the Staten Island Museum.

The show took place at the St. George Theatre, just steps from the Staten Island Ferry.

She performed with Bess Rogers (guitar), Allie Moss (guitar), Chris Kuffner (bass), Elliot Jacobson (drums), and Saul Simon-MacWilliams (keyboards).

This was the singer-songwriter's second benefit concert for the museum. (The first one was at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center in 2010.) 

Michaelson's mother, Elizabeth Egbert, is the museum's president and CEO.

Michaelson was discovered on MySpace and her music has been prominently featured in TV shows ("Grey's Anatomy," "American Idol," "So You Think You Can Dance") and commercials (Old Navy, Google). Her success with music downloads and licensing has allowed her to remain unsigned, selling close to a million albums and 3.5 million singles on her own label.

Her latest album, "Human Again," somewhat of a departure from her prior work, reached No. 1 on iTunes in its first week.

Michaelson grew up in the Stapleton section of Staten Island but now lives in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn with her husband, singer-songwriter Greg Laswell.

The Staten Island Museum, which bills itself as "New York City's only general interest museum," features exhibits that showcase the "connections between natural science, art and history."

    If you've never been, the annual convention for comic book fans known as Comic Con can be quite an eyeful. Women and men often even dress up as their favorite comic book character. Some of those costumes especially among the women can be revealing and proactive. Some women formed a group called Geeks for Consent. They have collected more than 2,500 signatures on a petition demanding that Comic Con organizers adopt a zero-tolerance policy against sexual harassment.
