Thanks to Eilen Jewell for calling in this afternoon in advance of our Freewheelin’ Friday show at the 331 Club.
Thanks also to all who came down Friday night. It was an awesome night of music, one of the best I’ve ever been involved with!! What an honor to be able to present this great artist and her band.
New music this week included Erik Koskinen, Movie Star Junkies, Fred Eaglesmith, Hot Club Sandwich, The Gentle Guest, Sixtyniners, and of course, Eilen Jewell’s new tribute to Loretta Lynn “Butcher Holler”.
A lot of great sounds tonight…including 2 new EPs from Secret Archives of the Vatican a dubwise summer mix (“Dubble Trubble from Pete Cogle’s Podcast Factory); the soundtrack from Eric Hilton’s new film Babylon Central; and a couple of Michael Rose selections to commemorate his appearance at the 5th annual Bayfront Reggae Festival.
This morning we enjoyed a visit from Nigel Egg:http://www.nigelegg.com, dressed in pink and gold and bubbling with music. While he is likely truthful when he tells us you can’t sing the blues with an English accent, he proves you can still have a lot of fun, and make some subtle points about life, too. His CD release party was the following Friday, and you can catch him every Sunday, 2-5pm, at Dusty’s in NE. Check the playlist for the rest of the mix.
