October 3rd is going to be a great day.
First of all, see above! We are very proud to announce that Charlie Sexton and Shannon McNally will be performing live at Decatur CD at 7pm on Tuesday, October 3rd. This is going to be a fantastic event. In fact, this is the only show they're playing in town. Indeed, the pair are playing about half a dozen shows at record stores around the country, so we're honored to be included. Don't miss out on what will be a truly excellent evening.
In case you're unfamiliar, Charlie Sexton's legendary guitar playing history stretches all the way back to 1985 when he released his debut album, Pictures for Pleasure, at the ripe old age of 16. Following a few more records, along with session work for the likes of Keith Richards and Bob Dylan, amongst others, he's hardly had any trouble staying busy over the years. Shannon McNally is a bit newer to the music scene (albeit, with three albums to her name), but her soulful, accomplished vocals draw comparisons to everyone from Emmylou Harris to Sheryl Crow. The two artists recently joined forces on the Southside Sessions EP.
Of course, when Charlie and Shannon are done playing that night, you'll likely need something to do for the rest of the evening, right? Well, we'd like to suggest that you head over to the Red Light Cafe to see Liz Durrett and Smog. In fact, you can buy your tickets here at the store. Come and get 'em while they last!
We'll see you on October 3rd...
