Myshkin has released 5 critically acclaimed records, been honored with several music industry awards and toured internationally with dozens of artists, including The Be Good Tanyas and Split Lip Rayfield. Myshkin has stories to tell and the means to tell them. She writes with a dark and subtle wit, raw honesty, and a painters eye. Her compositions bear the mark of an artist who finds inspiration all over the map and incorporates far flung musical ideas with a passionate ease. Who always has an ear out for beauty but pays little attention to trends. The result is an uncommonly timeless modern music.
Myshkin's Ruby Warblers is an ever-evolving crew of genius gamblers whose fort?ranges from tango to electronica, old time to modern classical to jazz, and each leave an imprint of their unique talents on the music. Myshkin plays an 80 year old martin tenor guitar, a vintage gibson six string, and a jumbo lowden acoustic. Her voice is her finest instrument though, and she wields it like a fortune teller, an acrobat, a hunter, a gift. Take a listen at www.myshkinsrubywarblers.com.
Then, saunter over to the Paradise Theatre at 9 pm for the funky, world-beat groove of The Iguanas. Hailing from New Orleans, where Latin and Caribbean music have a long and glorious history of interaction with R & B, blues and jazz, The Iguanas was formed in 1989 by guitarist/accordionist Rod Hodges and Joe Cabral, who alternates between saxophone and a traditional Mexican stringed instrument known as the bajo sexto. The two also share lead vocal duties. Within a few years, the current lineup was assembled (bassist Rene Coman, and drummer Doug Garrison) and the band emerged as one of the most popular bands in one of the worlds most musical cities.
The pan-cultural rhythms of New Orleans musical heritage still course through the heart of The Iguanas and their music. Latin shuffles, gritty funk, dark cinematic jazz and Basin Street horns all join hands to create world music in the true sense of the term. New Orleans is the singularity of the universe that is American Music and The Iguanas are some of its most skilled ambassadors. Their newest album, If You Should Ever Fall on Hard Times is the 2008 winner of Offbeat Magazines Best Roots Rock Album and was picked by the New Orleans Times-Picayune as one of the ten best CDs of 2008.
