Twilight Singers to Play "Blackberry Belle" in its Entirety at GAMH in September: Tickets On Sale Now
Performing an album in its entirety has definitely become a trend over the last few years. This year alone Jethro Tull will dust off Aqualung for its 40th anniversary, Matthew Sweet will relive Girlfriend for its 20th, and Pixies continue to add dates to their never-ending Doolittle tour because—well, probably because people are still paying for tickets. Add to this list Greg Dulli's Twilight Singers, who will play their 2004 album Blackberry Belle in its entirety one night only at the Great American Music Hall on September 17.
Amidst this bizarre summer cold and heavy ghost pirate fog plaguing the City, this weekend’s lineup is really going to heat things up. Unfortunately, most of the good stuff completely conflicts with each other. Make good choices ladies and gents.
N.E.R.D., The Warfield, 7/30: Meet Snoop Dogg’s self-professed therapist and master producer, Pharrell in his most creative state – on stage with buddies Chad and Shay at The Warfield. We think you’ll be surprised by the beats they’ve created for mainstream pop and rap. It’s surprising how much they’ve put together for artists these days.
After a slow couple of weeks on the show circuit, the second half of summer tours are beginning to pick up speed once again. From big names to small local fames, every single venue in the City seems to be featuring at least one showstopper this week. Check out our picks for the week:
Those of us who trekked all the way to Manchester, Tennessee last week for Bonnaroo know that choosing between 100+ artists surely isn't easy. Couldn’t catch Grizzly Bear because you were shaking your booty to Santigold? No worries, some of Bonnaroo’s greatest leftovers are stopping by for a visit.
Sleepy Sun, Great American Music Hall, 6/19: This local sextet has been generating tons of buzz on the blog circuit for their raw, high-energy rock sound. Disclaimer for first timers: make sure you know the standard call and return at every Sleepy Sun show, “Let’s get weird.” It’s shouted loud and proud by avid fans, and trust us, the show will probably be just that.
They say that it’s a male dominated world, but with power females like these, we beg to differ. Check out these women dominating the stages this week (and a few men too):
Neko Case, The Warfield, 6/9-6/10: Just in case you can’t make it to tonight’s performance, an encore is lined up for tomorrow, so there’s really no excuses. Miss Case gained fame by working on the New Pornographer’s debut album, but she’s held her ground and is proving to be one of indie’s new leading ladies with her fiercely independent and artistic voice. She’s definitely someone to keep your eye on these days.
