Sadcore king Mark Eitzel is one of my very favorite singers, but I’ve only been fortunate enough to see him in concert a couple of times – with American Music Club at QE2 and with Tuatara at the Iron Horse Music Hall.
Now he’s heading out on a very intimate tour that he’s dubbed “Mark Eitzel Performs American Music Club.” He’ll be accompanied by AMC alum Marc Capelle on the piano – and that’s it.
As Eitzel declares on his blog, “It’s kind of a Tony Bennett thing, I guess. But it gives me the chance to do these songs – and really sing them – without the distraction of a guitar.”
Even better, the tour is headed to Nippertown. Eitzel makes a stop at Jason’s Upstairs Bar in Hudson at 8pm on Sunday, July 19, as well as The Linda in Albany at 8pm Wednesday, July 22.
