As mentioned in yesterday’s post, Greg Laswell and Lenka are co-headlining on their current tour together. At Monday’s show at the Crocodile Cafe, Greg was up first and was accompanied by Austin Hartley-Leonard on cello and guitar.
Lenka was second up at The Croc on Monday night at a stop during her co-headline tour with Greg Laswell. I was able to grab an advance copy of her upcoming album Two – before they sold out – due to be released on April 19.
During the first of six shows at Jazz Alley, Madeleine Peyroux previewed a number of new songs from Standin’ On The Rooftop scheduled to be released on June 7, and played old favorites such as “Don’t Wait Too Long” and “Dance Me To The End Of Love”.
Even on a Sunday night, the indie rock duo from Los Angeles – Uh Huh Her – were able to pack Chop Suey. Camila Grey (keyboards, guitar) and Leisha Hailey (bass, guitar) are due to release Nocturnes sometime this spring.
Diamonds Under Fire, aka singer/songwriter Vanessa Silberman opened for Uh Huh Her at Chop Suey on Sunday evening. Silberman is based out of Los Angeles, and has drawn comparisons to Chrissie Hynde of Pretenders. I can definitely see that.
