Come on out for “Losering 2: A Tribute to the Songs of Ryan Adams”

Losering2lineupI 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.)

“Losering 2” — the lineup

Losering2headerMajor kudos once again to Dave Rose, proprietor of downtown Raleigh nightspot Deep South The Bar, for executing another stellar poster-design job for “Losering 2: A Tribute to the Songs of Ryan Adams” — happening at Deep South on April 11 as a sequel to the first “Losering” tribute show that happened back in May 2013. I’ll be your host for the evening, introducing the acts as they delve into the Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown songbook. As to who will be performing, the lineup goes like this:

Members of I Was Totally Destroying It
Members of New Reveille
Debonzo Brothers
Stephen Chandler Wilson (The Arcane Heart)
Season & Snare
Kasey Tyndall
Aslan Freeman (Unifier)
John Massengill (Old Quarter)
Charles Marshall (Balsa Gliders)
Ryan “Showtime” Kennemur (Dragmatic)
Mark Cimerro (Meatbox)

No word yet on repertoire, who will play what — but it did not take long for a “Summer of ’69” joke to pop up on the event’s Facebook page:
