Long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Julia Haltigan has a new EP ready and it’s called Hot Tears. Tonight’s performance will be the record release show. Julia recently moved to a classic four piece band (two guitars, bass and drums) and a more rocking sound. I’ve called Julia brassy, and even without a horn section, I still think that description holds. Some of Julia’s songs could be called Tom Waitsian except for the fact that they are way too cheerful for Tom. Of course given the occasion, tonight is a full band show. Opening for Julia will be Xander Ferreira, plus The MK Groove Orchestra (performing the music of James Bond), and Drippy Eye Productions will be supplying a light show as well.
Julia Haltigan (Xander Ferreira, The MK Groove Orchestra open), Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street between Thompson and Sullivan Streets (A, B, C, D, E, F or M Trains to West 4th Street), doors 6pm / show 7pm, $10
