MACY GRAY performing "On How Life Is"
Friday - 10/18/2013
8:00 PM | All Ages | $35 adv
"These were songs that I would've probably written in another life," says Macy Gray in her trademark rasp. She's been asked to identify the common denominator linking the wildly varied songs on Covered, her stunning new collection of cover songs. "And," she continues, "they're almost all these kind of dark love songs, which is the mood I'm in right now – to sing these I-wanna-slit-my-wrists-but-I-love-you songs.

PICKWICK w/ Prism Tats
To hear Pickwick tell it, their popular Myths 7-inch series was merely a group of rough sketches they'd been developing over the previous two years put to wax.
