Nick Lowe reissuing six out-of-print albums, playing lots of NY-area shows
Nick Lowe is reissuing six of his album albums -- 1982's Nick the Knife, 1983's The Abominable Showman, 1984's Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit, 1985's The Rose of England, 1988's Pinker and Prouder Than Previous, and 1990's Party of One -- on LP and CD, all of which have been long out of print. Each vinyl record comes with a bonus 45 RPM single (which are bonus tracks on the CD versions). The records are due out this summer via Yep Roc, and you can also order a bundle of all six that comes with a Nick Lowe Lunch box.
Folks in the NYC area have a few chances to see Nick live in June. He's in town to play the A2IM Libera Awards on June 8 at PlayStation Theatre with Twin Peaks, Ani DiFranco, Talbib Kweli, and Nick Hakim. It's an industry-oriented event, and tickets are not cheap, but he's got other shows. He also plays three nights at City Winery on June 9, 10 & 11 which are sold-out but you can sign up for the standby list.
He also plays June 15 at SOPAC in South Orange, NJ (tickets), Tarrytown, NY's Tarrytown Music Hall on June 16 with Alejandro Escovedo (tickets), and the Croton on Hudson's Clearwater Fest on June 17 (tickets).
Nick will be back in August to play Nick Lowe's Quality Rock 'n' Roll Revue as part of the free Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival on August 5 with Los Straitjackets (who release a Nick Lowe tribute album this week).
