Cost: $10 Advance / $12 Day of Show
Recently the New York Times called Low Cut Connie’s live show “a phenomenon” and “pathologically fun.” The LA Weekly says, “their live show is unmatched in all of rock right now.”
Low Cut Connie formed in 2010 when singer/songwriters Adam Weiner (New Jersey USA) and Daniel Finnemore (Birmingham UK) got stuck in a freight elevator together for four hours and decided to join forces to create their own brand of righteous rock and roll.
In 2011, they released their debut album Get Out the Lotion, landing on NPR / Fresh Air’s Top Ten Albums Of The Year and legendary critic Robert Christgau’s Top Ten Songs Of The Year lists. Their 2nd album, Call Me Sylvia included the band’s biggest song to date, “Boozophilia”, named one of Rolling Stone’s top 50 songs of 2012. The success of this record prompted an invitation by Jack White to play the grand reopening of his Third Man Records venue.
Low Cut Connie played 100+ shows in 2013 and ended the year by recording their third album with renowned producer Thomas Brenneck (Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley, Alabama Shakes). This soulful effort will be released Spring 2015. It features guest stars Merrill Garbus (Tune-Yards), Dean Ween, Greg Cartwright (Reigning Sound), and members of the Dap Kings and The Budos Band.
