Featured Show-Margo Price-Waiting Room Lounge-Wednesday

The first time I saw Margo Price was back in 2016 at The Waiting Room. She was touring on her first album Midwest Farmer’s Daughter. I don’t think I had actually listened to the album at the time that I saw her. The reason is, that at that show she sang “The Hands Of Time” and it absolutely floored me right there in that moment. It was such an incredibly crafted song with so much powerful emotion.That is a once in a lifetime song, maybe, for most artists.  We are now on album four, Strays, and honestly when it first came out I liked it, but didn’t love it. My employees kept playing it in the store and now I love it and it’s currently sitting in my Top Ten of the year thus far. The album has a different vibe-psych rock and Americana and it also has this song “Lydia” that guts me everytime I hear it. Margo is one of the best songwriters out there and she has proven to be able to not just get pigeonholed into the pure country or pure Americana thing, like I was probably doing in my head when I first listened to the album. She previewed this sound last year at Outlandia when her and the band performed a rocked up set that thrilled myself and many others. It was a stand out set from the weekend for sure. I expect more of that vibe at The Waiting Room this Wednesday. It’s a must see show. 

The Jewell has a super solid lineup this week. It starts with a Songwriters Circle on Wednesday with Ione who has a new single out called “Why Anna” that Jon Bon Jovi really likes. Also on the bill is Jason Birnsthil who really likes Jon Bon Jovi. Birnsthil has sold out The Jewell (and the Benson Theatre) recently, so get tickets to this show now. The third side of the circle is guitarist and songwriter Andew Bailie making this a pretty eclectic group on stage. On Thursday Sailing With Soup will perform a lot of classic cover and deep cuts for the musically minded and Friday is The Toast with Aly Peeler, Mitch Towne, Andrew Bailie, and Dale Black doing classic soul and funk songs. Mitch is returning this week from his tour of Japan with his group SRT. Towne and Black will return to the stage on Sunday for a jazz set with Andrew Janak and Parker Sibley. On Saturday is Andre Vander Velde with with Jaguar James doing a tribute to Bill Whithers.
