Sat, May 2 Maury Smith Cd Release Party - $6
Maury Smith and his mythical Orchestra Boredenave turn their gaze from Paris (scene of the material for the 2013 album Mirage) to focus instead on New Orleans and its environs as they release their new collection of original tunes, Looking South.
It'll get swampy, so wear your mud boots. Faulknerian story lines done up in acoustic minor keys, toe-tapping fiddle-dobro dances along the levees and crisp banjo-driven images of heat creeping northwards on the sodden wings of climate change will inspire bouts of the vapors. That ornate painted fan Auntie Blanche gave you might come in handy. Joining the Orchestra for the
evening: Jacoba Epstein (violin, accordion, vocals), Kevin Clark (double bass), Clare Norelle (mandolin, guitar, vocals) and Adrian Crabb (guitar and vocals). Maury will play fretted stuff and sing his heart out for you. Y'all come down now, yuh heah?
