Bush Tetras announce 35th anniversary show at LPR with special guests

Our pals the Bush Tetras have announced a 35th anniversary show at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC on May 1. Special guests included Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four), and Don Fleming. Support comes from the Karyn Kuhl Band. Details available here & here.

I'll Be There: New Chic single hits March 20, UK dates, new album in June

Nile Rodgers posted this teaser video recently, and wow...does it sound good! The single, "I'll Be There" (instrumental version shared here) is available March 20 from iTunes & on vinyl here, and a new album is due in June on Warner Brothers. As I understand it, it's a mix of old & new, as Nile has dug up some old tapes, reworked them, added some new stuff, and presto! New Chic! The world could use it.

UK dates are in March (see below), and I HIGHLY suggest catching them if possible. I was lucky enough to see them in NYC a few summers ago, and besides being easily the most diverse audience I've ever been a part of, the show is just pure joy from beginning to end. Nothing but hits and a really good time.

I can't believe this video exists: Dyke & The Blazers performing You Are My Sunshine (1968)

Now I can cross this off of the list of things I thought I'd never, ever, see. Color me astounded.
