So I have news for both the Feelies and Speed the Plough today.
First of all, Should Be Gone is the Song of the Day today on my beloved NPR.
As I mentioned before, the Celebrate Brooklyn! show on July 23rd has been officially announced. It will be held in Prospect Park with Times New Viking and Real Estate opening. It's free, so if you're in the area, you should go.
Another show has also been announced for the day before Celebrate Brooklyn! at Daniel Street Club in Connecticut. I'm pretty excited for that one as well because Milford is a great little town. More information here.
An additional Maxwell's show has also been added on July 3rd. I will not be able to make this one because I'm celebrating the 4th of July with my boyfriend's family this year down the shore, but I'll definitely be there on the 1st and 2nd. You can get tickets for any of the Maxwell's shows here.
On to Speed the Plough news. So, as you may know from my previous entries, a new album will be released soon, and it's called Shine. I recently was able to listen in on a few songs from the new album and it sounds great! For more info on that you can check out the Speed the Plough Facebook and official website . You'll also see some picture I took of them last Sunday, like this one:
STP is also playing 2 shows in late July. The first is on July 29th, and Brenda's band Wild Carnation is playing as well. You can find out more about it here. The next day, another show is happening in Montclair at Tierney's too, details here.
So there's an awful lot to be excited about this summer.
Anyway, here's a picture of the Feelies with Tom Jones and author Jan McInerney. My dad was really excited. Hope to see you at the upcoming shows!
