You ought to get to know Patti Rothberg.
Patti and her NYC-based band Wet Paint are headlining the Amphitheater Stage at Albany’s annual Tulip Festival on Saturday afternoon. You probably missed her last local show at Lansingburg’s Bad-Ass Burrito – a last minute re-booking to make up for an ill-fated Judge’s Inn gig.
Rothberg sold a half million copies worldwide of her major label debut “Between the 1 and 9.” The success of that album had Patti touring non-stop in the very late ’90s, throughout the US supporting the Wallflowers, Chris Isaak, Midnight Oil and Garbage, before heading over to Europe supporting the Black Crowes. Patti and her band performed on “Late Night with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” as well as “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
