Long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Leslie Mendelson has been on the west coast recently and has not graced her long time home, The Rockwood Music Hall, for a while. But Leslie will play Rockwood’s Stage 3 tonight. Joining Leslie for this show will be ace guitarist Scott Metzger and a special guest or two.
If you haven’t heard or heard of Leslie, she plays piano, guitar, ukelele and sings, has a great pop sensibility, and as Vin Scelsa of WFUV once said, “nobody can write a sweet song like Leslie.” Famed producer Jac Holzman has even compared Leslie to Carol King. Leslie performed Elvis Costello‘s Everyday I Write the Book with Steve Nieve at City Winery, and has played with Bob Weir as well.
