Grant-Lee Philips

Grant-Lee Philips

At the start of his show at the Linda on Saturday night, criminally under-appreciated singer-songwriter Grant-Lee Phillips took a good, long look around the theater and told the crowd, “This makes so much sense. This used to be a bank, right? So when a bank goes out of business, you don’t bail them out. You turn it into a music club, and you bail out the folksingers.”

Now there’s a plan…

And it’s just as good as Phillips’ plan to join musical forces with the exquisite little Northampton, Mass. band Winterpills.

“I think the first album that I ever bought probably would have been Kiss‘ ‘Destroyer.’

No, actually, you know, it was probably the Partridge Family album, the one with the red cover that looks like a photo album.

Well, it was one of those two albums, anyway.”

Sublime singer-songwriter Grant-Lee Phillips makes a tour stop at The Linda in Albany on Saturday (November 14) in support of his new album, “Little Moon.” He’ll be performing solo as well as with members of Winterpills, who are also the fine opening act.
