Six or seven more by Earthwise at Lytton Plaza before the weather turns


Steve Poltz at Lytton Plaza on a Wednesday. One 9/28/22

Mads Tolling group the next night, same place. Someone who got a 4.5 star review in Downbeat and my contact info named Chase Elodia and friends, from NYC, will be playing after. Two. And or three; (was “might”, upgraded to “will” — stay tuned — Mads is scheduled for 5:30 to 6:45, Chase is from 7:30 to 9ish. Especially at these outdoors shows, we try to be professional but cannot control all the chaos). Chase Elodia, drums, Claire Dickson, voice; Theo Walentiny, piano; Eytan Schilinger-Hyman, bass. 9/29/22


On October 6 at Lytton Plaza I have a trio with drums, bass, sax; the bass is from Mexico and is a woman and might also sing. six Greenlief  Torres Amendola. 10/6/22

Marley’s Ghost, is more like folk or Celtic. Five; Ok, four. 10/7/22

Ben Goldberg clarinet and Liberty Ellman guitar for Lytton Plaza on Friday October 14. Seven. [Check back to see if I end up with six or seven shows at Lytton Plaza between September 19 and the end of the summer, Indian summer or fall). 10/14/22 rain or shine kinda rooting for rain

info six five oh three oh five oh seven oh Juan 


edit to add:

Philip Greenlief just texted me, 3:38 on Monday, September 19 “just got off the plane from Mexico City” which I interpret has something relevant to his upcoming show with Mexico’s Adriana Camacho Torres; also, people here in the 650 will know that it has rained a bit recently — I don’t think it will impact my shows. Nor did the heat wave. The first show of the year, Dan Bern in March, it rained but the crowd was modest enough that he invited them to stand close to him under the canopy.

    Four and-a-half stars (****1/2) review by Anthony Dean-Harris in Indie Column of Downbeat:

    Chase Elodia is a hell of a drummer and
    on his debut album for the Biophilia label,
    Portrait Imperfect
    , he has written songs and amassed a band that
    shows this off impeccably. These songs are
    ambitious, tricky, artful, and they all stick the
    landing. Claire Dickson takes the front on
    vocals, serving the lyrics, providing just the
    faintest bits of flavor to the notes and leaving
    room for the rest of this band to work togeth
    er. Theo Walentiny on keys shimmers
    and shapes. Wednesday’s show includes Chase, Claire, and Theo and Eytan Schillinger-Hyman on bass.
