Good Morning Raindrops,
This will be the perfect evening to spend in the cozy Indy Hostel to hear four amazing musicians. And it's an early show for those of us that are adjusting to working every morning!
The Indy Hostel
4903 Winthrop Ave
Thursday, May 12 (tonight)
If you've never been to a house concert this is the absolutely best way to see music. It's like having the musicians playing on your sofa. Mary Lee Pappas from NUVO describes the Hostel and the Whiskey Breath Travelers much better than I can. Read her review below.
I'll see you tonight!
Whiskey Breath Travelers (Mary Lee Pappas)
The WhiskeyBreath Travelers are an interchangeable collective of New York based musicians who hit the open road performing each other’s songs like it’s the only thing they want and know how to do. It’s a rotating cast, so there’s an element of surprise with variations on familiar songs and an element of improv that matches the mood.
Decisions are made in the moment like who gets to play what
instrument during what song and what song should be done next, all without skipping a beat and all done to enhance the performance. It’s a unique, soulful, thoughtful, musical venture.
This incarnation of the Whiskey Breath Travelers features two new
faces not seen or heard last March at their Radio Radio and Indy
Hostel shows. John Oszajca and Tom Rhodes join this NYC East Village ensemble of mix-and-match singer-songwriters for a whopping three performances this week. Liz Clark and Rick Royale are two faces that Start your flow chart! Gone for the moment are WB cast member and co-founder, Alex Lowry, who performed at Radio Radio last Saturday Indianapolis with singer-songwriter pals he met at the Midwest Music Summit last year Dave Golden, Shelley Miller and Kara Kulpa on May 31 at Vic’s Acoustic Café for an 8 p.m. show and again on June 3 at the Harrison Center for the Arts “Underground” QueenBee Music Series; and Tessa Perry.
It would be remiss to miss out on seeing these WB team musicians who
are stand-alone talents with their own individual musical careers,
albums and/or bands back home. Tonight, WB will be opening for Bob
Schneider and Band at Music Mill at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7p.m. and
tickets are $16. Thursday, May 12, 8 p.m. they will be offering an
all ages show at Indy Hostel (www.indyhostel.us), an intimate, homey, venue where a true sense of their talent and sentiment, of both craft and delivery, can be assessed and enjoyed. And, you hang out with them too boot. Advance sale tickets are $8 and available by visiting www.WhiskeyBreath.com. Tickets are $10 at show. Saturday, May 14, they open for local piano-rocker Jon McLaughlin at Radio Radio. Tickets are $5 at the door.
