By now we hope you’ve heard, our live events production wing, No Country Presents, has taken up residence at Lower Broadway’s hippest new restaurant, lounge, retail, and event space, Acme Feed & Seed, where we’ve been bringing you a weekly, FREE, Tuesday night showcase, featuring some of our favorite emerging local and national talent. The curated showcase runs from 8 to 11 p.m. each week, and, so far, has featured everything from folk to funk to rock to indie. For our next installment, on Tuesday, Nov. 11, we’re bringing you an exciting double bill of local rockabilly/soul singer Molly Sue Gonzalez and Baltimore indie rock outfit Slow Lights. Keep reading to find out all about them, and cancel any other plans you might have Tuesday night, because you’re coming to hang with us. Got it?
MOLLY SUE GONZALEZ
Citing influences like Wanda Jackson, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Aretha Franklin, Nashville transplant Molly Sue Gonzalez erupted onto the rockabilly scene with her debut album, Under the Influence, and has been making a name for herself around town with the aid of her backing band, The Mean, Mean Men. Anchoring her powerful vocals with a rockabilly style which pulls heavily from traditional country, Gonzalez, is, certainly, a no brainer for lower broadway, but is, still, something unique and different from the many cover band pop country acts in neighboring establishments, and we’re proud to include her in our lineup. Come hear some new and old tunes, and, likely, plenty of classic covers!
Based in Baltimore, Maryland, and continuing our trend of adding quality up and coming touring acts into the Acme fold, Slow Lights formed last year, and have quickly been finding an audience with their blend of indie, rock, and soul music. For their Acme set, co-vocalists Asa Kurland and Piper Greenbaum are performing acoustic, so watch the live video below for a taste of what you can expect.
Molly Sue Gonzalez and Slow Lights will perform Tuesday, Nov. 11, at Acme Feed & Seed. The show is 21+, music begins at 8 p.m., and, per usual, it’s totally FREE. Downtown PARKING can sometimes be an issue. However, if you’re willing to walk a few blocks, street parking is typically easy to find on the numbered avenues south of Broadway, or along Korean Veterans Blvd. Metered spaces are often free after 6 p.m.
