Sam Amidon & friends @ LPR in 2009 (more by Fresh Bread)
"On Friday and Saturday, November 19 and 20, The Kitchen will present solo performances by musician, composer and visual artist Sam Amidon. Drawing from his most recent release, I See The Sign (Bedroom Community, April 2010), Amidon will perform re-workings-by turns intuitive and radical-of secular ballads, gospel, folk songs, and hymns, in addition to original compositions. This evening will also include interludes of storytelling, field recordings, and projections of Amidon's hand-drawn cartoons and short videos. Curated by Matthew Lyons, the performances will take place at 8:00 P.M. at The Kitchen (512 West 19th Street). Tickets are $12."That's the description of Sam Amidon's two sold out ("Waitlist at 7pm at door") shows happening tonight and Saturday at The Kitchen, and it's the description of the third show they just added that will take place Saturday night at 10pm. Advanced tickets are on sale, or you can take your chances at the door.
