It’s a melancholy time we are all living through here in Boston where the music is concerned. Our beloved TT’s is no more, and Davis Square stalwart Johnny D’s will soon sadly meet the same fate. The mood is dark, somber, bittersweet, nostalgic and filled with angst.
Whose music could be more suitable for this lingering sadness than that of the one and only Declan Patrick MacManus?
As part of a series of farewell performances for Johnny D’s, This Year’s Model will not only celebrate Elvis Costello’s birthday (August 25th) and stupendous catalog, but it will feature heart-wrenching, barn-burning performances from some of Boston’s greatest female singer songwriters, them being Jess Collins (The Static Dynamic, Petty Morals), Jen De La Osa (Aloud), Amy Douglas (FEINTS, Sunrise Hwy), Bridget Duggan (Paper Waves), Jess Jacobs (Band Without Hands), Tanya Pearson (Drab), Gretchen Shae (The Knock Ups), and Magen Tracy (Parlour Bells, The Missed Connections).
