Richard Lloyd, one of the founders of the seminal punk group Television and a musician known for his studio work with Matthew Sweet (among others), performed a solo show before a too-small crowd Sunday at City Winery. Lloyd also read excerpts from his book, Everything Is Combustible: Television, CBGB’s And Five Decades Of Rock And Roll: The Memoirs Of An Alchemical Guitarist, and talked to audience members about his process.
All in all, a fascinating evening. Photos were for ParkLifeDC.
Austin-based Reckless Kelly stopped at City Winery in Washington, D.C., as part of a short East Coast tour that runs through Nov. 8. Two decades into their career, the band remains a forceful stage presence deserving of a much wider audience.
A pleasant surprise was opener Jeff Crosby and the Refugees, who played a 40 minute set. During Reckless Kelly's encore, Crosby came out to play with the band on covers of Tom Petty's "Listen to Her Heart" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son."
Our personal summer concert series began tonight with the first of three shows I'll see this week. First up was Lori McKenna at City Winery in Washington, D.C., and she proved again why the small stuff in life means so, so much. If you haven't heard her music — chances are you have and don't know it — by all means go have a listen.
Next up: Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit at Wolf Trap on Tuesday, followed by the Cowboy Junkies on Thursday at The Birchmere.
