This event is 21 and over
Cindy Wilson’s current endeavor is as far from The B-52s as one
can possibly imagine. Rather than shouting from the rooftops in
"The World’s Greatest Party Band", Wilson swoons and whispers
over swirls of subtle psychedelia, Quincy Jones-era strings, and
With echoes of Air, Bjork, Tame Impala, and Gary Numan, the
band refers to its infectious brand of new wave electro-pop as
"Turbo Chill,” a sonic synopsis offered by the hosts of Adult
Swim’s Stupid Morning Bullshit following the release of Wilson’s
solo debut EP, Sunrise. Two years in the making, Change offers a
challenge to fans of the iconic B-52’s, while cultivating a new
generation of listeners.
After four decades on the road internationally with The B-52s, Change represents a full circle for Wilson. Tapping into
her own local stock in order to start anew, Cindy returned to the same town that nurtured her own creative roots:
Athens, Georgia. Change features a “native” cast of Athenian musicians including Ryan Monahan (Easter Island,
Monahan), producer/engineer Suny Lyons (PacificUV, Dream Boat), Lemuel Hayes (Ola Moon, PacificUV), and Marie
“It’s very different from a B-52’s show,” Wilson recently told PopMatters. “I get to play around with different ideas and
beautiful melodies. I don’t have to yell in a rock voice. I think you can get an emotional depth in the types of rooms
we’re playing that you can’t find in larger rooms.”
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums (from which B-sides & Rarities has been largely culled), performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.
In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs accompanied by NYC-based string quartet ETHEL. She also recently performed a Carnegie Hall premiere of a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
Amy Rigby is a songwriter, musician and performer best known for her album Diary Of A Mod Housewife and Little Steven’s Underground Garage favorite track “Dancing With Joey Ramone”. She was part of the late 70’s downtown NYC no wave nightspot Tier 3 gang and formed bands the Stare Kits, Last Roundup and The Shams before beginning her solo career. For the last twenty years she has toured the US, Canada, UK and Europe, appearing on Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, World Cafe, Whad’Ya Know, All Things Considered, BBC Radio 6 Music’s Marc Riley Show and Mountain Stage. She lives with her husband and sometime duet partner Wreckless Eric in the Hudson Valley.
Amy's solo album The Old Guys will be released in March 2018.
“Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.” — New York Times
“Rigby combines formidable aural craftsmanship with blunt, self-deprecating honesty.” — Village Voice
“Her wit, emotional intelligence, and superior gift for melody have enabled her to capture a moment in the lives of men and women as precisely as Carole King did in the early 70’s.”
— Chicago Reader
