On the last Sunday of the month, Tom Clark, who runs The Treehouse at 2A, turns the programming over to Monica “Li’l Mo” Passin. The result is the series called the Field of Stars (originally held at the late and lamented Banjo Jim’s).
Tonight’s show is a doozy, with at least 28 musicians – solos, duos and combos – performing a generous helping of songs that spring from The Brill Building and environs way back in the 60s.
Joining Li’l Mo tonight will be Lianne Smith, Gene Casey, Thirsty Dave, Dina Regine, Sherryl Marshall, Tom Clark, Crystal Durant, Lisa Lowell, C. P. Roth, Homeboy Steve, Drina Seay, Rembert Block, George Gilmore, Emily Duff, Dave Foster, Elena Sky, Tom Gould, Boo Reiners, Bibi Farber, Scott Aldrich, Susan D, Mary Lee Kortes, Leslie Wagner, Amy Allison, Cid Scantlebury, Mary Spencer Knapp, Courtney Lee Adams, Jr., Lisa Zweir and even more!
The fun gets going at 8:30pm, but it’s going to be crowded up at The Treehouse, so getting there early is highly recommended.
