Late in the evening on October 16, Hidden Track will hit the five year mark. We’ve got plenty in store that week, but we wanted to invite our readers to join us in celebrating the anniversary at NYC’s Village Lantern on October 14. Three bands will be on the bill with ties to our site – HT contributing editor Ryan Dembinsky’s D.O.T.S. C.O.N.F.U.S.E. M.I.N.D.S., contributor Will McCranie’s WM3 trio and HT faves The Whitewalls.
We wanted to share a track from each group to give you a taste of what you can expect at the Village Lantern on the 14th.
David Lott of The Whitewalls has spent the last few months working on some solo tracks, with a formidable lineup of musicians that includes Rob Heath (drums, Justin Townes Earle, Steve Earle), Tim Luntzel (bass, Roseanne Cash, Bright Eyes, Norah Jones) and Riley McMahon (recording engineer, keys, lap steel, New Warsaw Studio). Check out one of the fruits of Lott’s labor – Paint By Numbers…[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/PaintByNumbers.mp3]
Next up, we’ve got Never Again and Dance.Dance.Dance. from the Will McCranie (WM3), which shows off a much harder, rockin’ side of Will’s songwriting than some of the solo stuff he was coming out with towards the beginning of his career…
Finally, take a listen to the super catchy Jenn You Whine from D.O.T.S.:[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/jenn.mp3]
The action starts at 10PM next Friday, October 14, at the Village Lantern on Bleecker between Sullivan and Thompson. We hope to see you there!
