LISA FISCHER is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it.

Lisa rose to fame in 1992 when she won a Grammy® for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her first single, “How Can I Ease the Pain,” from her album So Intense beating out the “Queen of Soul” and in an unlikely tie with Patti LaBelle. The rest of her resumé is pretty impressive too: touring, recording, and music making with Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Alicia Keyes and many others. Along with many other top session and backup singers she’s featured in Morgan Neville’s Oscar and Grammy-winning 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom.

Friday Night.  

Doors open at 7:00 with Buick6 opening.  The dynamic Ms. Williams begins at 9.

Lucinda Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades now, emerging from Lake Charles, Louisiana, where her iconoclastic upbringing helped her forge the stunning Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album). Somehow, that milestone 1988 set eventually disappeared from shelves, but was reissued 25 years later, as a deluxe edition that garnered unanimous acclaim — including Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailing it by calling it “A perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the heart or make it soar.” For much of the ‘90s, Lucinda moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect inside the industry – as borne out by the Grammy afforded Mary-Chapin Carpenter’s interpretation of Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.” While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that did was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism – like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her a second Grammy Award. Over the next decade, she crafted such classic sets as West (2007), and Blessed (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” Lucinda credits the injection of vitality and passion that emerged in part to Tom Overby, her partner in both life and music, who’s acted as both a sounding board and collaborator, contributing production ideas and offering encouragement to forge forward in directions that she might not have otherwise explored. That creative connection has grown increasingly electric over the years, as borne out by 2014’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which won the 2015 Americana Music Association Award for Album of the Year. On February 5th, Lucinda Williams will release her 12th studio album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, which gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life.

Soooo, I’ve been a minute or a thousand.  I apologize but the gauntlet has been thrown and I’ve accepted the ASP.Net challenge.  I spent the entire weekend held up in my little home office, mainly debugging.  Stay tuned for tales of the new collaboration widget for musicians and my scalable musician site complete with a MySQL backend that almost looks as good as mine…

…almost.

Those of you who know my love and adoration for anything and everything vegan may scoff at this post.  I just really like the atmosphere at Zombie’s.  It’s swimming in non-pretentiousness.  I like that.  I like that a lot.

Bob Marley

Nationality: Jamaican
Type: Musician
Born: February 06, 1945
Died: May 11, 1981
Robert Nesta “Bob” Marley, OM was a Jamaican reggae singer, song writer, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim. Starting out in 1963 with the group The Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee Scratch Perry. After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, Marley pursued a solo career that culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977, which established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records. He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality.”

thefallsThis iconic San Antonio act is coming back together to show us what music-making is all about.  The Falls will be packed to the gills with people who wish to step back in time and remember hard-rock the way it is supposed to be.  It will be cold tonight but I doubt anyone will care with all of those hot beats going on.

It’s going to be a good night.
