Announcing a special residency every Tuesday in March at the Lizard Lounge with
songwriter, bassist, and producer Kimon Kirk and his all-star band, The Meds.
This month Kimon Kirk and the virtuoso Meds debut as a fully-formed rock 'n' roll
band. These monster players own virtually any genre of song-oriented popular
music: crafty pop, heartfelt country, late-night jazz, edgy rockabilly, swinging blues,
soul-inflected balladry nothing is off limits. Kirk, founding member of Session
Americana and sideman to Aimee Mann, Sarah Borges, Melissa Ferrick, and Will Dailey, is joined by keyboardist Jamie Edwards (Aimee Mann), guitarist Lyle Brewer (Dennis Brennan), bassist Jim Haggerty (The White Owls), and drummer John Sands (Lisa Marie Presley). Kirk and the Meds celebrate the release of a new single, "Baby Who Knows," written and recorded with Aimee Mann. Band members have long worked as touring and studio session players with a variety of artists and performed as a unit with Aimee Mann, Grant-Lee Phillips, Ramona Silver, and Lori McKenna. Each week, the Meds will perform with a special musical guest, each a peerless songwriter, performer, and collaborator.
Week One: Kimon Kirk and the Meds with Ramona Silver A deft pop-rocker who has released gem after hook-filled gem ever since making a splash in Boston in the '90s, Ramona Silver is rocking, soulful, and always completely musical, whether playing electric guitar or keyboards. Often backed by Kirk, Edwards, Haggerty, and Sands, she and her music have long been a nucleus of excitement and creativity in the New England area. Her new video, Sled Song, released this winter, sums up Boston's snowy heft with sly humor and a useful lesson in local geography. Kirk and the Meds are honored to have Silver as their first guest of the month.
