It seems to me that whenever I’ve had some news lately, it’s been bad news: club closings and the like. So here’s some good news for a change, starting with a club opening!
There’s a new music club in town, in midtown Manhattan, of all places. It’s called Midtown Live, located at 251 w. 30th Street. It’s run by the folks who operate The Highline Ballroom, and they aim to book roots and rock n roll.
I saw a new band last night that Now I’ve Heard Everything will now be covering. &Co is a power trio consisting of Sonya Kitchell (guitar/vocals), Jesske Hume (bass/vocals) and Neal Evans (drums/vocals). They flat out rock, with Sonya playing some real badass guitar.
I previously mentioned that the Del-Lords had started work on a new album. According to Eric Ambel, that new record should see the light of day sometime in the coming year. Also coming in 2015 is the first Eric Ambel release since 2004. Jimbo Mathus will be producing Eric’s record.
