"This was the most packed I've seen Glasslands on a Thursday in ages, and it's not hard to see why. Mayfield's latest record, the Dan Auerbach-produced Tell Me, moves Mayfield beyond her neo-country confines and continues her tradition of strong songwriting - see for example "Run Myself Into the Ground", which maintains a hint of twang but backs it with some solidly rock guitar work. That came courtesy of Nashville's Richie Kirkpatrick, whose band Ri¢hie has also served as Mayfield's rhythm section at several recent shows. This was my first introduction to Jessica live, and I was extremely pleased with both the show and the crowd. The only thing that could have made the night better would have been her performing her new cover of Nirvana's "Lounge Act"!" [NYC Taper]NYC Taper has a recording of the show.

The Mercury Prize-nominated Anna Calvi took the stage last night (7/27) at Le Poisson Rouge in a swirling mass of fog, and began to play "Rider To The Sea," the opening track of her eponymous debut LP. Being a huge fan of the record I was nervous to see if she'd be able to pull it off live, but her headlining set exceeded my expectations. She commanded the stage with such a raw intensity as she played through most of her album in addition to an amazing rendition of Elvis' "Surrender." When she exited the stage after 10 songs, the crowd roared to get her to return. Her encore consisted of a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Joan of Arc" followed by Edith Piaff's "Jezebel."
Daniel Wayne opened the show and it was it was altogether a great night of music. Anna's full setlist and more pictures from the whole show below...

Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs
"Holly Golightly was born in London and named after the heroine in Truman Capote's novella Breakfast at Tiffany's. She fell under the spell of American roots music the minute she heard her first Stax single and started her musical career playing guitar and singing in punk bands like Thee Headcoatees. Golightly started recording her own albums in the mid-'90s, drawing on the American singles in her massive collection for influence. She was particularly taken with gospel, blues, and other styles of music from the American South, as evidenced by her original songs, which have a strong retro feel. In 2005, Golightly started performing as a duo with Lawyer Dave, a Texas born one-man band that plays guitar, drums, and occasionally the banjo. No Help Coming is the fourth album they've cut as a duo, with Golightly singing and Dave acting as another vocalist and backup band." [Crawdaddy]Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs hit Mercury Lounge in NYC last night (5/5) as part of a tour that continues on to Brooklyn for a show at Knitting Factory tonight (5/6). Patrolled By Radar and Stately Ghosts open tonight, and Daniel Wayne (whose upcoming shows include Union Hall on 05/12 w/ The White Buffalo and 92 Y Tribeca on 06/21 w/The Handsome Family) opened in Manhattan.
