The Living Room
154 Ludlow St.,
Sunday, November 20, free, 9:00

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. She was recently joined in the studio by the legendary Lenny Kaye, who contributed guitar to two tracks, boding well for the upcoming disc. Reilly, a mesmerizing live performer who gets lost in her powerful songs, will be at the Living Room on November 20 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), and drummer extraordinaire Steve Goulding (the Mekons, Garland Jeffreys, the Waco Brothers). They will be preceded by a Stories and Songs residency by Danny Lanzetta at 7:00 and hope hazy at 10:00. For our twi-ny talk with the delightful Reilly and Mastro, click here.
