Tonight: The Kennedys CD Preview Show at The Bowery Electric

The Kennedys (Pete and Maura) have been playing together since 1994. Usually, when they play live it’s just the two of them.  Even so, with their two guitars, they still get a rather full sound.   I’ve always described the full band Kennedys as sounding like The Byrds but with female lead vocals.

Having just passed their 20th anniversary as a band, Pete and Maura have not lifted their feet off the pedal.  Separately and together, Pete and Maura are releasing three new records for 2015.  They’ve already issued West, the latest Kennedys album, and Villanelle: The Songs of Maura Kennedy and B.D. Love.  The final installment of this three-part release, Pete Kennedy’s Heart Of Gotham is now out. You’ll hear that record previewed tonight.   Heart of Gotham is a song cycle set in New York City.

The Kennedys,  The Bowery Electric, 327 Bowery between 2nd and 3rd Streets (6 Train to Bleecker Street or Astor Place, F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 2nd Avenue exit), 9pm, $9
