Ladies Coverband Night is a tribute to great singers and songwriters. It gives us a chance to gush and pour ourselves into our latest obsession! Every year we gather amazing local bands, and we challenge them to cover someone more famous than themselves.
This year, we’re so excited to announce that Ladies Coverband Night will be “Gentlemen’s Choice” this year! The night will begin with Singers-in-the-Round: Mark Lipman as Patty Griffin, Steve Subrizi as Jenny Lewis, and Nick Zaino as Aimee Mann. That’s right, men! Bitch Trifecta will follow with a Cowboy Junkies set (lots of Trinity Sessions…), and Tom Bianchi closes out the night!
We’re doubly excited that we’ll be playing in conjunction with Tom Bianchi’s Singer-Songwriter Night at the Burren! Every Sunday Night, Tom rallies the Somerville community to the back room and showcases singer-songwriters, a lot of them are from out of town. He helps draw in a regular crowd by closing out the night himself and making sure everyone is feeling good before they go home!
Historically, the Burren has also been a venue that has been extremely supportive of local music and folk music. Everyone knows how Hugh McGowan has hosted the open mic at the Burren for 16 years now! That is a ruckus if I’ve ever seen one! So we’re very excited about this show for many reasons!
Ladies Coverband Night is taking on different forms and venues, and we’re so proud to bring you this night.
