$10 advance and $10 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:00 show
After putting out one of the best records of 2010 Amy Correia moved back to the Boston area and is about to take the city by storm. An incredible songwriter, powerful singer and charismatic performer, tonight begins what we hope will be one of many shows to come here at The Lizard Lounge in 2011. Joining Amy tonight will be Kimon Kirk on bass and Billy Beard on drums
"An astute songwriter who avoids clichés..Ms. Correia is not just another quirky girl, the label often affixed to women who use their heads as aggressively as their hearts. She must face the fact that the music industry isn't very good at promoting women who are more like the cat that eats the canary than the fragile bird itself. This singular talent warrants a chance to disprove easy expectationsMs. Correia deserves to be embraced by a loyal audience."
