Squeeze the Day(s) for 10/14-16

Music Tonight: This weekend is loaded with quality musical events. You can start things off tonight at the Southgate House as local singer/songwriter Jason Ludwig hosts a "two-fer" release(s) party, joined by special guests The Newbees and Sassy Molasses. From the previews on his Bandcamp site (listen — then purchase the records for just $5 — here), both Lost In Love and Tanglings are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime). The title track from Lost In Love is available as a free download on the Bandcamp site (the Tanglings' track "Bunkum" is also a freebie), but below is Ludwig doing an impromptu living-room performance of the track on piano. What a voice! And the songwriting and production on the new albums are equally enthralling, as Ludwig gravitates towards a more mature and melodic sound. Tonight's show kicks off at 9 p.m. and admission is $12. Those in attendance will receive a voucher for one of the free albums (and a discount coupon for the other). Click here to read C.A. MacConnell's recent interview with Ludwig for CityBeat.

If one needs proof of the existence of a cosmic overmind or benevolent deity, the recent re-emergence of Bettye LaVette should be all the evidence required. Her recent releases have been triumphs of the style she's been honing for four decades, but on her latest abum, 'Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook,' LaVette applies her stunning voice to some of the greatest songs in the Rock & Roll canon.  

Widespread Panic: Dirty Side Down

In theory, Widespread Panic's new album shouldn't be the one to break the mold, and yet the band's 11th album just happens to have notched the best first week chart position in their long recording history. So does that make 'Dirty Side Down' the best album in their catalog? Maybe so and maybe no.
