After we announced, Dawn Landes said she wanted a country-ish opener for her record release show which is happening tonight (1/22) at Mercury Lounge. What better opportunity then to do a show with Uncle Monk aka the last surviving original member of the Ramones’ bluegrass band. Dawn loved the idea and Tommy Ramone said yes. It’s an early show. Uncle Monk is on at 8pm. Dawn hits the stage at 9. Then the room clears out in time for the Serena Maneesh show happening at the same venue right afterwards.
If you miss it, Uncle Monk also has a show coming up at the end of February at Bowery Poetry Club.
Those outside of NYC can catch Dawn on tour, sometimes with Justin Townes Earle, starting Saturday. Dawn’s new album, Sweetheart Rodeo, was released this week. The track “Young Girl” from that album is above. The video for the same song is below…
