SESSION AMERICANA - The fall residency continues!
Tuesday December 9
$10 advance / $12 at the door
8:30 doors / 9:30 show
Session Americana continues at The Lizard for three months of Tuesday nights! Hot Press calls Session Americana - "a traveling medicine show which eschews snake oil in favour of an ongoing grail quest for the perfect collaborative experience."
Session Americana is delighted to announce that they will be in residence at the Lizard Lounge October, November and December on Tuesday nights from 9-12 PM.
The band is hoping this will be their best residency ever. Adam Moss will be on most of October, Laura Cortese is playing all of November, and Jason Anick (12/2 and 12/16) will alternate with Alec Spiegelman (12/9 and 12/23) for December. As always, they will be inviting a bunch of friends to drop in for a tune or two as well.
Session Americana (Boston) is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft an musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack's bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that's not accidental or easilywon; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bag".
Session Americana is an absolute must-see, must-hear.
Says David Greenberger of NPR: "I'd give them 100 miles. That is to say, if they're playing anywhere within 100 miles of your home, you drive there and are grandly rewarded for your effort."
