The Electric Ears should use earplugs they are jamming so loud! The Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band record is getting mixed in the box. Sister Kathy’s 20-song-80-minute opus got the kids vocal treatment and has moved on to mix. Paul Catania continues to record Pocket Tanya. Tom Hauck is laying down rekkid #3. Meg Griffin brought Willie Nile in for another Sirius/XM session. Anna Rae is mixing her new record on the board. Dan King just did some analog processing on his KBMG mixes. Lisa Manning is laying down more song poems. Rob Garfield continues to mine his profession for music. The Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society and Marina Evans used Studio B for fine tuning.
“Before I start, I’d just like to say that it’s one of the great pleasures of my life to be on this stage with these people tonight.” (I just wanted to geek out, The Last Waltz style, and steal a sentence from Neil Young, before the entire Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society starts geeking out, Tusk style. Neil said it about The Band, and I’m stealing his sentiment, and saying it about TLBAS.)
I am thrilled, and re-thrilled, to announce that The Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society will be performing Tusk, in its entirety, starting at Johnny D’s in Somerville, MA this Thursday, September 19th (buy tickets), at Littlefield in Brooklyn on Friday, September 20th (buy tickets), and at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 21st (buy tickets).
We are a collective of musicians/Lindsey & Mac obsessives based out of Philadelphia.We performed the most punk rock soft rock album ever (and Lindsey Buckingham’s enduring creative statement), Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk in its entirety over three shows in May 2010. We tackled the follow-up, 1982’s Mirage – along with other assorted Lindsey/Mac gems – at two shows in February 2012. We’re doing Tusk again in 2013.
Our current lineup features founding members Charlie Hall (vocalist and multi-instrumentalist with Jens Lekman, The War on Drugs, Windsor for the Derby, Tommy Guerrero and leader of the Philadelphia-based male choral ensemble The Silver Ages) and Patrick Berkery (who has played drums with The War on Drugs, Pernice Brothers, Danielson, John Wesley Harding, Mazarin and others). The current lineup also includes past TLBAS participants Birdie Busch (a Philadelphia-based singer and songwriter), Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs, Nightlands), and Eliza Hardy Jones (Buried Beds).
Join Brian King, Renee Dupuis and Dan King and me for some Stevie Nicks tunes to accompany the new documentary, “In Your Dreams”, being screened at the Cape Ann Community Cinema this Thursday, September 12th. Tickets are $10.
And it wouldn’t be Fleetwood Mac month if there were just one Mac event. The Lindsey Buckingham Appreciation Society is back at it: performing TUSK in its entirety in Somerville, MA (on 09/19), in Brooklyn, NY (on 09/20), and in Philadelphia, PA (on 09/21). Read about the TLBAS, its esteemed members, and how much fun we’ve had, and are going to have. Then come join us. Tickets to Johnny D’s in Somerville are available on the Facebook Event page.
