I am very rarely on stages myself, which is better all the way around. But this Saturday night (April 11) you can find me onstage at Deep South the Bar in downtown Raleigh, where it will be my privilege and pleasure to host “Losering 2: A Tribute to the Songs of Ryan Adams.”
It’s an event that’s been in the works a while, ably booked and produced by John Booker and Deep South head Dave Rose. And if it’s anything like the first edition from 2013, this will be a great night. Members of I Was Totally Destroying It, Old Quarter, Dragmatic and other fine area acts will be performing songs from the Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown songbook; and the playlist includes “Somebody Remembers the Rose,” “16 Days,” “Too Drunk to Dream,” “Tennessee Square” and lots of other favorites.
Just to reiterate, Ryan himself will not be there. But you should be. Proceeds benefit the Food Bank of Eastern & Central North Carolina, so it’s for a righteous cause. Y’all come!
(By the way, we got less snark from the Indy this time than last time.)
