amazing lineup upstairs today too
As usual, I fell behind and never got to fully write about how excited I am for the lineup upstairs at Pianos this afternoon (free – starts @ noon, @ Pianos, BrooklynVegan party). So real quick: You’ve got singer-songwriter/GNR cover band member Dave Godowsky opening up the show – his ony area appearance. Following him is Orba Squara, who among other things, is known for the song in the iPhone commercial. Then Marla Hansen of Sufjan/National/Kanye fame. Then Scott Matthew – known for having songs in soundtracks like Shortbus & Ghost in the Shell – he has a beautiful, beautiful voice. Then JULIA KENT – an amazing, solo cello player that is gaining popularity in Europe, and who also happens to be a member of Antony & The Johnsons, and who was in Rasputina, etc, etc… Then DOVEMAN. Then Tim Bracy of the Mendoza Line (who was supposed to play later). Then Craig Wedren – formerly of Shudder to Think. Then finally Erik Friedlander (who was supposed to play earlier) – “now one of the world’s top cellists“.
