There’s certainly a lot of ground to cover tonight (like every night) and I’ll most likely find myself at LPR and Brooklyn Bowl for at least for part of the evening. One name that caught my eye in particular tonight was Trixie Whitley, the daughter of deceased American blues guitarist Chris Whitley. Trixie currently performs in Black Dub with Daniel Lanois and Brian Blade, so I’m a little curious as to what she’ll do on her own tonight.
UPDATE: Rockwood doesn’t have Trixie listed on their site for tonight, I wonder if this is an omission or a cancellation.
Trixie’s show last night was cancelled – but she’ll be playing at the same venue on Sat at 5 pm WITH Daniel Lanois as a duo!
