Bassist/guitarist Pete Donnelly has been a busy guy for the past couple of years. Of course, he still helps fuel the former-Nippertown power-popsters the Figgs. And the Figgs have occasionally served as Graham Parker’s back-up band (at least until GP reunited with the Rumour). For a while there, he was also anchoring Terry Adams’ resurrected NRBQ, as well, though he did leave the ‘Q back in September.
But he also released his excellent solo album When You Come Home at the end of 2011, and he’s toured extensively in support of that, too. On Friday night (May 24), Pete Donnelly & the Wise Easy return to Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany. Hand Habits open the show at 8pm.
