Let’s say a happy birthday to a man who was in town just last week. Thomas Dolby got his start playing in Bruce Wooley and the Camera Club, writing songs with Lena Lovich and playing sessions with Foreigner (that’s him playing keyboards on “Waiting for a Girl Like You”). He eventually went out on his own, debuting with the terrific Golden Age Of Wireless album. His mix of electronics with regular instrumentation was creative and he had ample songwriting chops. He then hit with “She Blinded Me With Science”. From there, Dolby experimented with various approaches and when his career stalled, he went on to work on various aspects of instruments and sound. He still tours and entertains to this day. So in Dolby’s honor, please get out your iPod or MP3 player, hit shuffle and share the first 10 songs that come up.
Zola Jesus has been getting a lot of attention in 2011. Listen to her incredible voice and intensely atmospheric music and it’s not hard to understand why. Join us tonight at Lincoln Hall for what’s sure to be a fantastic performance. Also on deck tonight are the mind-blowing electronics of Breakcore master Xanopticon!
