Death of Samantha / Lame Drivers / Dave Hill
Baby’s All Right, 146 Broadway Brooklyn, NY 11211
Death of Samantha hasn’t played NY since CBGB circa 1990! The legendary Cleveland band recently reunited to play shows in Cleveland and Columbus, WFMU’s SXSW show, and a few dates with Guided By Voices. They also recorded a practice session full of favorites from their 1980’s Homestead releases. It’s out on a double LP, If Memory Serves Us Well
DoS went on to inspire a generation of underground bands while its members went on to new projects including Cobra Verde, Gem and some of thee most classic Guided By Voices. Just this year, singer John Petkovic released the second LP by his band Sweet Apple, featuring J Mascis, Mark Lanegan and Bob Pollard! Guitarist Doug Gillard released his first solo LP since 2009, and it’s chock full of jams! We had the chance to open for Doug earlier this year at Cake Shop, and to see his band play with GbV at Bowery Ballroom, the new songs are instant classics, Parade On is highly recommended.
Dave Hill, also one of Cleveland’s finest, is on the bill too. He plays in the bands Diamondsnake and Valley Lodge and has a new book Tasteful Nudes: …and Other Misguided Attempts at Personal Growth and Validation. We’re not sure what he’s going to do at the show, but it is not to be missed!
With 24-hours notice, Baby’s All Right will make you a whole roast suckling pig. So if you want a whole roast suckling pig at tomorrow’s show, you’d better order it now!
