Maria Taylor interview; Drew Smith, Whipkey tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 7:22 pm April 22, 2009

Just posted, the Lazy-i interview with Maria Taylor, right here. Maria talks about leaving Omaha, leaving Saddle Creek, and the end of a relationship (with Conor? She’s not saying…). She also talks about her poppy new album, Ladyluck, and working with (among others) R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe. It’s a barrel of fun. In the end, Taylor was sometimes elusive but never unwilling to talk (or explain things, off the record). Give it a read, then run out and buy your tickets to Friday night’s show at The Waiting Room. Opening is Whispertown 2000 and McCarthy Trenching. Let’s give Maria a homecoming she deserves.

Tonight at The Waiting Room it’s Drew Smith’s Lonely Choir, a guy who counts among his influences Harry Nilsson, Van Morrison and Ray Davies. And according to his bio on the Waiting Room website, he once joined a band in Omaha. What band would that be? Opening is Matt Whipkey (doing a solo set). $7, 9 p.m.
