Back in May, Memphis-born alt country folk rocker Megan Reilly previewed several songs from her upcoming album at twi-ny’s tenth anniversary party at Fontana’s. Joined by guitarist James Mastro, the Jersey girl played a haunting, heartfelt set, her sparkling new material filled with evocative love and longing. Reilly, a mesmerizing live performer who gets lost in her powerful songs, will be at the Lakeside Lounge on July 7 at 9:00 for a free show with a truly great band, consisting of Mastro (the Bongos, the Health & Happiness Show, Ian Hunter’s Rant Band), drummer extraordinaire Steve Goulding (the Mekons, Garland Jeffreys, the Waco Brothers), and bassist supreme Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, They Might Be Giants). Reilly will also be playing July 16 at 10:00 at the Living Room. For our recent twi-ny talk with Reilly and Mastro, click here.
