When Mark Eitzel wrote on his blog that his current just me-and-my-piano-player tour was “a kind of a Tony Bennett thing,” I had no idea that he meant it literally.

So it was something of a surprise when the American Music Club frontman launched his concert at The Linda on Tuesday, July 23 with “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”

BEST O’ THE SUMMER: Mark Eitzel

July 16th, 2009, 5:02 pm by Greg

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.

Don’t miss him.
