5th Ladies Coverband Night: Chameleon/Comedienne

Ladies Coverband Night (LCBN) presents “Chameleon/Comedienne,” its fifth show to date, on November 21st, 2013, at the Davis Square Theatre. This year’s show features three local acts: riot, punk grrl band The Knock-Ups; acoustic-rock, singer-songwriter Bitch Trifecta; and folksy, Americana rocker Lauren Bateman. Advance tickets are available at brown paper tickets ($10, no extra charges).

The title of the show “Chameleon/Comedienne” is a play off of one of Kathleen Edwards’s more introspective songs from her album Voyaguer, and it’s a reflection of how we’ll be transforming ourselves to pay tribute to the musicians we love!

It’s been a tough go this year trying to find the right musicians, the right venue, and the right collaborators! After hearing so many “No’s” and “Naw’s”, we’re so grateful to the people who have said “Yes” and “Yesser”! (Okay…maybe only I said “yesser.” -jane)

Please join us this year in welcoming another great batch of converts into the Ladies Coverband Night church of thursday night saints:

Opening the night is Lauren Bateman as Melissa Etheridge.

For the first time, our official host of the evening is the soft-spoken, tender, loving, singer-songwriter Mark Lipman. He contains within himself many voices and talents, and we’re so excited to see what he brings to the night!

Also for the first time, instead of working through a promoter or booking agency, Ladies Coverband Night is putting on this show independently! With the uncertainty of Precinct’s music schedule, we wanted to find another venue to partner with us. As usual, this turned out to be the most dramatic aspect of producing an independent show! Fortunately, the Davis Square Theatre provides a beautiful, multi-purpose, community venue for rent, giving us the freedom to create whatever kind of show we want–without undue pressure  or fear of losing the venue to another show (this has happened all too many times to all of us in the Boston music scene). So far, they’ve been great to work with, organized, and supportive of our project.

Tickets for the show are available at the door and on brown paper tickets for $10. Brown Paper Tickets is a great independent ticketing site that allows us to provide convenient tickets for purchase at no extra cost to the consumer! If you like what we’re doing, we encourage you to show your support by purchasing advance tickets through this innovative, independent vendor! The Davis Square Theatre is a small venue, and this will ensure you entry to the show.

Every Ladies Coverband Night is a chance to do something new and better, and we’re still learning and trying to put on a great show that’s fun for the musicians and the concert goers. We hope you enjoy all the slight changes this year: having an official host, the change in venue, and the option for online ticketing. Working with new collaborators this year has been invigorating and will bring a new energy to the show! Together, we hope to prove that women in rock have a great and inspiring presence in the local music scene in Boston!
