Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first two Joe's Pub concerts! This residency is off and running and I can't wait to keep it rolling with the next one coming right up a week from today on Monday March 13th at 9:30 PM. Our last two shows sold out in advance, so go get your tickets while supplies last!
A few little teasers about this March show...
I'm debuting a new song about standing up to bullies in a world without any grown-ups in charge, inspired by... well, every day in our country's strange new (sur)reality. Come hear me try to make sense of it all in a quasi-gypsy rock song. I'll also be continuing my cover series featuring work by the legendary artists whose portraits hang on the Joe's Pub 'wall of fame' just left of the stage. This month, I'm playing an accordion arrangement of a tune made famous by Alan Cumming. It's my favorite waltz about apathy and the rise of fascism. Just keeping things real light, folks!
In all honesty, the sense of love and community I get on these nights at Joe's Pub is a big part of what's keeping me going in all this madness. Thank you for sharing it with me. Hope to see you Monday night!
In other news, I'll be singing a song by my phenomenal mentor, the great Elizabeth Swados, this Wednesday March 8th in Lincoln Center's American Songbook concert honoring her prolific, prophetic work. I wouldn't be writing music if it weren't for Liz. Come revel in an evening of her radically powerful work. Tickets are still available here.
P.S. Save the date for the next Pub show: April 28th, on sale now, featuring special guest Ato Blankson-Wood!
