Showtime 8pm doors open at 7pm. Patti joined a New York band called Thrust who she played with through 1993 and 1994. Legend has it that while busking at the 14th Street Station in New York she was spotted by a passing EMI America executive, signing to the label in February 1995. A multi-instrumentalist, Rothberg played all the guitar and bass parts on her debut album, Between the 1 and the 9, which was released on April 2, 1996. The album title is a reference to the subway platform where she used to busk, and the title song describes some of her experiences there. The album went on to sell over 250,000 copies in the US and another 200,000 in Europe and Japan. The first single, "Inside", reached number 25 on Billboard's Alternative Songs Chart. With her band, Rothberg toured extensively supporting Chris Isaak, The Wallflowers, Garbage, Midnight Oil and Paul Westerberg; making appearances on high profile TV shows like Late Night With David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. February 1997 saw a foray into Europe opening for The Black Crowes. She was also tapped to play at a few Lilith Fair dates. During this time, two of Rothberg's songs appeared in movies: a cover of "Kung Fu Fighting" in Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) and "Inside" in The Misadventures of Margaret (1998). All looked rosy for Patti, until EMI Records USA closed and she found herself without a record deal. Continuing to play live shows, Rothberg teamed up with producer and guitarist Freddie Katz in 2001 and recorded her second album Candelabra Cadabra at Long Island's Avalon studios. The album was released by indie label Cropduster in 2002. At year's end she also released a 3 song holiday EP entitled Snow Is My Downfall. While working on her next album, Patti also found the time to record seven songs written by Michael Slifka for the movie Anywhere. The soundtrack album was released on the indie label Engine Company Records on March 27, 2007, though the movie is still unreleased. In late 2007 she provided guest vocals on the Black Sugar Transmission track "Miserylou", which was eventually released on the band's 2009 e.p., USE IT. Patti's third album, Double Standards, was released by indie label Megaforce on May 13, 2008. The release show was at the Blender Theater in NYC on May 22, 2008.
