Hosted by John Broduer and MotherJudge on Sunday, October 29 starting at 7:00PM at Tess’ Lark Tavern (453 Madison Ave., Albany)
21 and over – No cover
Hosted by Mother Judge and John Brodeur, co-hosts of the long-running Lark Tavern open-mic night, “Why Can’t I Be You IV” is the fourth in an ongoing series (following 4/1/01 @ Lionheart, 10/31/03 @ the Larkin, and 4/1/05 @ Lark Tavern), originally organized by area online magazine thehiddencity. The event brings together Capital region singer-songwriters, bands, and instrumentalists from all genres to perform cover versions of songs by other area musicians. In other words, we “do” each other.
A partial lineup of performers for “Why Can’t I Be You IV” is, in no particular order: Charmboy, Mother Judge, John Brodeur, Ramblin’ Jug Stompers, Steve Candlen, Bryan Thomas, Princess Mabel, the Black Fuel, the Decadent Royals, Katie Haverly, Rob Jonas, Laura Boggs, Mitch Elrod, Nick Matulis, and the Sense Offenders. More additions and surprises are anticipated.
This year’s event also promises to incorporate video submissions from Matt Durfee, as well as area musicians who have moved on to other regions, including event co-founders Tom Burre and Amy Abdou.
