Originally from Meridian, Miss., Steve Forbert traveled to New York in 1976 and played for spare change in Grand Central Station while seeking work in the local folk venues. The crowds at CBGB's accepted his performances as much as the audiences in traditional clubs and theaters. He vaulted to international prominence with his second album, Jackrabbit Slim, which went gold behind the hit single, "Romeo's Tune," and his tribute to Jimmie Rodgers, Any Old Time, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2004. "I didn't invent folk-rock or country rock, I was keeping a particular American tradition alive," Forbert says. His lengthy discography has established him as an American treasure.
From an opening slot a few years ago, to his Live At McCabe's CD, Troost has provided some of the most satisfying performances we've ever hosted. In addition to his work as a singer-songwriter, he is an Emmy-winning and multiple Emmy-nominated composer of more than one hundred scores for films and television. His intricately wrought blues-folk songs reflect this strong melody craftsmanship and match it with a rare ability to write poetry that sounds like everyday language. Tonight, Ernest shares the bill with Red House recording artist Bonneville, a hard-driving, blues influenced, song and groove man who often writes about people who live on society's fringes. Ray's vibe is loose and soulful, and with his greasy guitar style, horn-like harmonica phrasing, smokey vocals, and pulsing foot percussion, he immediately rivets audiences. Either one of these powerful artists could headline his own show, but here at McCabe's, you get 'em both for one low price. How you gonna beat that?
Itís a hip-shaking, head-bopping, interactive morning with Lucky and The Band! L.A.'s own Latin GRAMMY-winning, all-ages, nationally touring indie rock group will release a new Spanish language album on Cinco de Mayo: Aqui, Alla. This collection of celebratory tunes blends Chicano rock, indie pop and Tejano sounds to engage a new generation of kids and families. Be here!
The pioneers of two major musical movements have reunited. Bill Kirchen co-founded Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, the original Americana band, and his trademark Telecaster licks drove their hit "Hot Rod Lincoln" into the Top 10 in '72. Austin de Lone dropped out of Harvard to start Eggs Over Easy, moving to London and recording with Chas Chandler in 1970. The Eggs are the progenitors of British pub rock, the first link in the chain to punk rock, new wave, and beyond. This duo first collaborated in the mid-'70s, writing together as The Moonlighters. "We sent Nick Lowe a bunch of songs for Rockpile, but unbeknownst to us they had decided to break up," Kirchen says. What de Lone got back was a letter from Lowe that began, "Dear hero o' mine. There's not many of us left..." Lowe then offered to produce them in London, and the resulting Moonlighters album, Rush Hour, came out in '83. Since then, de Lone has worked with Lowe, Paul Carrack, and Elvis Costello on several tours, and Kirchen held the guitar chair for Lowe's critically acclaimed Impossible Bird disc and tour. And now the two have teamed up for a brand new studio album called Transatlanticana, just out on Red House Records. We're delighted to welcome them to McCabe's.
