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 Three: Kimon Kirk and the Meds with Lori McKenna Award-winning
songwriter of numerous hits for major country artists, Lori McKenna has long been a favorite performer and singer in New England. In the last decade she has become a staff writer at a major Nashville publishing house, composing for such superstars as Faith Hill, who recorded four of McKenna's songs on her album Fireflies. McKenna's new album is the critically-acclaimed Numbered Doors, produced by Mark Erelli. In the last year, McKenna, Edwards, and Kirk have begun collaborating and writing songs together as the trio Wandering Stars; this week will be the live debut of their new batch of original material.
