At Nippertown.com, we’re crazy about dog videos, of course. And we also love veteran singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, who brings his new one-man show, “Surviving Twin,” to The Egg’s Swyer Theatre at 8pm on Friday (October 2). Tickets are $34.
Well, it turns out that they had such a good time together on last year’s tour that they’re gonna do it again this holiday season. Sadly, they won’t be returning to Greater Nippertown on this go-round; it looks like the closest they’ll getting to us is the Visulite Theater in Charlotte, Virginia on Thursday, December 3.
The good news, however, is that they recorded the Boston stop on last year’s tour, and Yep Roc Records is scheduled to release Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets’ The Quality Holiday Revue Live album on Black Friday, November 27.
And don’t forget – before he hits the road on the Quality Holiday Tour, Lowe is scheduled for a solo concert at Club Helsinki in Hudson at 8pm on Wednesday, October 7. Josh Rouse opens the show, and tickets are still available, priced at $45 & $65.
WOW! A great video from the folks at Touché Videoproduktion, as Joachim Müllner (of the Paris-based band In the Canopy) explores the wide-ranging acoustic properties of 15 different locations – all in one a cappella song…
“Radio” is the title track from the Steep Canyon Rangers’ upcoming album produced by Jerry Douglas. The album is slated for release on August 28 on Rounder Records, but you don’t have to wait til then to hear the band (and maybe some of the new songs). Steep Canyon Rangers will playing at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival at Walsh Farm in Oak Hill this weekend. The fest runs from Thursday-Sunday (July 16-19), and SCR will be featured on the main stage in the headline slot at 10pm on Saturday. GO HEREfor more info on the fest…
Recognize anyone you know in Kevin Morby’s new music video, “Parade”?
Yes, that’s Nippertown’s own Meg Duffy, making her first appearance at around the 40 second mark. Best known as the sonic architect for Hand Habits, Duffy is currently on a month-long European tour with Morby (of the Babies and formerly with Woods).
