Abbie Barrett And The Last Date
The latest single from Abbie Barrett And The Last Date is a dark and driving dynamo. “That Shame” is a layered with wailing guitars, haunting backing vocals and a locked-in rhythm section. All of this is in support of Abbie’s soulful, scathing, perfectly delivered lead vocal. Damn. This is fantastic.
Where to get it:
I’m always down for some Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents. The Q Division Holiday Party made good.
Another year. Another Q Division Holiday Party. Another wonderful set from Abbie Barrett. Another heartwarming rendition of “Abbie Barrett Makes Christmastime And Every Time A Better Time” by Brendan Boogie.
It’s Black Friday. Black Friday is still terrible. Supporting local art isn’t. Here’s a quick list of alternative ways to spend your hard earned dollars than fighting crowds at the chain stores.
If you do go out to the stores today, think about keeping it local. Oh, and pick up something for Anngelle Wood’s Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund.
Here are Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents rippin’ up the rug at The Lizard. They make it look easy.
Eric Salt & The Electric City closed out a night of great songs performed by fantastic musicians at a wonderful club. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. We’re lucky to have people like this in our town.
Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents are Jeff Lynne’s dream R&B band. Or maybe they’re Darlene Love’s favorite new wave band. I can never remember which it is. No matter. They were their usual fantastic selves at The Sinclair.
Every time I see Abbie Barrett play with her band, I walk away a bigger fan. Her voice and songs have impressive depth. Her wit is keen. Teamed up with the talented folks that make up The Last Date she may be unstoppable.
The good people of Gloucester were spoiled with a great double bill at Mile Marker One to close out July. After Sidewalk Driver livened the place up, Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents took to the corner of the tent and ripped out a fantastic mix of originals and covers. This is one heck of a band.
Here are some photos of Abbie Barrett And The Last Date. Take a look. They’re a wonderful group of people playing really well written songs. Oh, and they’re an absolute joy to watch. They played the Magen Tracy EP release the other night at Atwood’s. I enjoyed myself. Maybe you would, too. It’s worth a try.
