Chan Marshall

Cat Power's set of Apollo Theater shows are just few days away (Feb 6-7) (tix), but that didn't stop her/Chan/them from announcing a third NYC show that's happening even sooner. The new one is happening in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday, February 5th. $30 TICKETS ARE ON SALE @ NOON.

The Dexter Romweber Duo are opening the Brooklyn show...

The Dex Romweber Duo also features Dex's celebrated sibling Sara Romweber (Mitch Easter, Lets Active, Snatches of Pink) on drums. Together they have been performing electrifying concerts all over the US and Europe, touring with Cat Power, Southern Culture On The Skids, Legendary Shack Shakers, Reverend Horton Heat, Neko Case and the White Stripes.

Dex is the subject of a new documentary movie, "Two-Headed Cow," which chronicles his legendary career. The movie includes testimonials by Jack White, Neko Case, Cat Power and Exene Cervenka amongst others, all of whom cite Dex as a major personal influence.

The Dex Romweber Duo's new CD "Ruins of Berlin" will be in stores February 10, 2009 on Bloodshot Records. The CD features guest appearances by Neko Case, Cat Power, Exene Cervenka and Rick Miller of Southern Culture on the Skids.

Lykke Li plays the same venue tonight (2/3). Beirut is there tomorrow. Of Montreal is playing there three nights in a row in April.

Neko Case has some shows coming up too.

Dex Romweber is also opening both Apollo shows. All Cat Power & Dex Romweber dates below...

i saw the Romweber Duo in Hoboken last fall. it was an incredible show and only about 20 people showed up. definitely worth it just to see them.

I live close to Music Hall and love the venue. Still if you prefer to see her there over Apollo you're nuts. Apollo is the perfect venue for her and those shows will be historical ones for anyone who loves Chan.

cool I guess? I did buy 1 for Friday's show. Upper Mezz. though... 2x Cat Power this week! :)

damn. ive got tix for apollo, but, come on, music hall would be wayyy more intimate, and wayyy closer to home. have the apollo tix been selling well? i dont think either show is sold out, oh well.

looks like saturday night is sold out. friday is close to it.

I think I'll skip the MHOW show. I've her many times in venues smaller than MHOW (Hiro, Black Cat in DC) and have sweet seats for the Apollo show.

She's really best suited for small theaters anyway. The best I've ever seen her was at Town Hall with Memphis Rhythm Band.

Dexter Romweber Duo is opening the Apollo shows too:

awesome! thank you for the heads up BV. pumped about this. love the MHW and I think Chan will probably be looser and more laid back in the smaller venue without all the pressure of winning over the big audiences at Apollo.

The Dexter Romweber Duo is great.

I'm sorry 11:04, but you're just fooling yourself.

she's usually more nervous in smaller, more intimate settings.

Posted by wembley | February 3, 2009 12:27 PM

This isn't her solo, right?

Why does everyone think these people come from the mid-west? (seriously, it's getting annoying. everytime the word "trust fund" is in this blog the word mid-west follows) Whatever happen to CT? Is the mid-west the new CT?

Talk about an awesome darn lineup! I'm so psyched to watch clips of these --especially Bruce Springsteen who is still amazing as ever.
