Off the beaten shows this week with Hayley Thompson-King and Marissa Nadler - tonight 3/7 @ the Plough & Stars + 3/8 @ 826 Boston - debut tracks!
If you are hunting for cool little shows this week like a Frenchman hunts for truffles, here are a couple of selections to make things more interesting. Tonight, singer/guitarist Hayley Thompson-King of excellent blues/garage/harmony trio Banditas continues her residency at Cambridge's Plough & Stars with her solo project Love-Up Time (a sometimes-duo with White Pages' Simon Simard). Joining her tonight will be Northhampton artist Jeremy Dubs, who is a close associate of Frank Black.
Tomorrow stoic folk songstress Marissa Nadler will charm party-goers for a few brief numbers at 826 Boston in Roxbury for a reading with the Rumpus and McSweeney's in celebratation of AWP Conference week. Nadler's brief set, before she heads off on a European tour (which includes a much anticipated stop for the singer in Turkey) will break-up readings by Roxane Gay, Amy Fusselman, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Thomas Page McBee, and Paul LeGault. Charming-riffic!FULL ENTRY
