Be Here Now: Sean Rowe’s “Exile On Abbey Road” @ the Bread & Jam Cafe, 7/16/10
Supremely soulful singer-songwriter Sean Rowe has something a little extra up his sleeve when he takes the stage at the Bread & Jam Cafe in Cohoes on Friday night.
He’s calling it “Exile On Abbey Road,” and – yeah, you guessed it – it’s going to be an evening of Sean playing tunes from the vast catalogs of the Rolling Stones and the Beatles.
“I’ve always considered the two bands to have this sort of primal vs. cosmic dichotomy, as if they somehow represented the separate but complimentary sides of the brain,” Rowe explains. “I don’t have much of an interest in ‘cover bands’ per se, but I thought it would be cool to dedicate a night to cover these two huge influences.”
Rowe will be joined on stage at Bread & Jam by vocalist Cara May Gorman and Railbird guitarist Chris Kyle.
“Exile On Abbey Road” is a fundraiser for Rowe’s upcoming album, which he’s slated to begin recording later this month. The follow-up to his marvelous “Magic,” the upcoming album is tentatively titled “Long Way Home.”
Tickets for Friday’s big show are available online and at Bread & Jam Cafe for $15 in advance, which includes:
1.) admission to the show
2.) a limited edition EP, “Black Magic,” featuring re-worked songs from “Magic” in a “home-recorded” style
3.) a copy of Rowe’s upcoming album
Tix will be priced at $20 at the door on Friday night.
“I can’t stress enough how vital your support is to the production of this record,” says Rowe. “All proceeds from the event will go towards recording and production fees.”
If you can’t make it out on Friday, you can still pre-order Rowe’s upcoming disc online, and he’ll send along a copy of the ‘Black Magic’ EP as well.
