Continuing on my "bold new territory kick: next Saturday, March 2nd, I'll be part of a great big one-of-a-kind show at Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square. It's called The 9, and "the" other "eight" are:
Shoney Lamar (!!!)
Basically the nine of us will be accompanying and collaborating with each other in various permutations to be determined, and it should be a riot. Here is a little video explaining this crazy thing further:
Founded in 2008 by singer/songwriter Justin Trawick, "The 9 Songwriter Series" is a touring live music event based in Washington, DC. The show was created with the idea of nine artists getting together and combining their talents in order to play in nicer clubs and to larger amounts of people. Each installment features nine solo singer/songwriters performing in rotation and often sitting in with each other, providing audiences with a rich, intimate, varied listening experience. Where else can you hear almost 30 songs from nine different artists for only $10? To date, over 100 different artists have participated in "The 9", at shows in DC, Arlington, Bethesda, Baltimore, Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Richmond, Charlottesville, Charlotte, Los Angels and San Francisco.
