JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW (POSTPONES L.A. & NYC SHOWS)
Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow was to have played Brooklyn and Los Angeles in early December, but unfortunately he’s had to postpone those two shows. “We’ve been racing to try and get my visa turned around in time to get on a plane this Thursday, the way the system is built is pretty complicated, you’re in the dark until the passport shows up at your house,” James wrote on Instagram. “Believe me when I say we moved heaven and earth to try and make this happen over the last couple weeks, we thought yesterday it could come together but thanksgiving is fully fuckin up my situation. I’m genuinely gutted that I have to postpone.” He hasn’t postponed them too long, with both happening in January: Brooklyn will be 1/23 at Murmrr Theatre and L.A. is now 1/25 at The Lodge Room. Original tickets are valid for the new shows, and refunds are available at point of purchase. He’s still playing Toronto this weekend. Head here for all dates.
BILL FRISELL’s HARMONY (WITH PETRA HADEN, HANK ROBERTS & LUKE BERGMAN)
Back in October, guitar great Bill Frisell released HARMONY, his first album under his own name for Blue Note, which is a collaboration with vocalist Petra Haden, cellist & vocalist Hank Roberts, and guitarist, bassist & vocalist Luke Bergman. You can stream that below. Bill will take HARMONY on the road in 2020, starting at SF Sketchfest where he’ll also help out with one of Fred Armisen’s “Comedy for Musicians but Everyone is Welcome” shows. Then HARMONY will play Cambridge (MA), Burlington (VT), Portsmouth (NH), Ardmore (PA), Baltimore, Minneapolis, Boulder, Seattle, Eugene, Portland, and Park City, UT.
