Happy Tuesday music connoisseurs! We’ve got another light lineup tonight, but hey, we’re all just preparing for the shows and festivals to come, right? We have some awesome musicians playing intimate shows this evening at various clubs and bars such as Eddie’s Attic, the EARL, 529 and Smith’s Olde Bar. All of our faves! Check out the schedule below and see which show you’ll be attending!
BMI Presents: Eddie’s Songwriter Series @ Eddie’s Attic
Featuring Shannon Labrie, Pip and Jon Jonsson.
Jon Jonsson brings his personality to life on stage, putting on an energetic and explosive performance, his mix of John Mayer sentiment and Stevie Wonder soul gets the audience hooked on him instantly. This singer-songwriter is no stranger to the bright lights of the stage, experiencing wild success in his home-base of Iceland; including four singles in the top 30 on Icelandic radio, #1 selling singles on the Icelandic iTunes charts. He was named “Best New Singer” at the 2012 Iceland FM957 People’s Choice Awards, and also received the award for “Best New Artist” in 2011 receiving an incredible 60% of the fan votes.
Before you head to the show tonight, check out our Q & A with singer-songwriter, Pip!
The Blank Tapes @ The EARL
The Blank Tapes is now and always has been Matt Adams, a soft-spoken kid from a Southern California suburb who learned to play practically every instrument a good garage band needs, and then started making beautifully idiosyncratic records on his trusty home eight-track because… well, why wait? After a year of low-key shows, he’s secured a spot with the Danny Rose booking agency and debuted what he calls the most fully realized version of The Blank Tapes yet—a lean and pristine trio with D.A. Humphrey on bass and Charles on back-to-basics Moe Tucker-style drums, with the kind of three-part harmonies the Wilson brothers used to love.
