Tonight: The Looking and Sasha Dobson at The Bowery Electric

The Looking

There’s a very interesting show at The Bowery Electric tonight. This is the CD release show for the brand new record from The Looking, a project of musician Todd Carter.  The new record is titled Lead Me to the Water.  I’ve heard the title track from it, and it flat out rocks.  I’m not surprised, as the previous record from The Looking, Songs for a Traveler, contained full bodied rock arrangements.  Although that record consisted of traditional songs, Lead Me to the Water contains Todd’s own songs (with one exception).

Opening will be long time Now I’ve Heard Everything favorite Sasha Dobson.  For this show she is stepping away from Puss n Boots, the band she is in with Norah Jones and Catherine Popper and which is getting ready to go on tour to open for Neil Young.  Sasha will be playing her own songs, including those from her most recent album, Aquarius, released about two years ago.  Sasha is also currently working on a new record.
