Friends, I put together a stretch of really special Queer Country Quarterly/Monthlies this spring because there are so many amazing musicians from around the country I can’t wait to introduce you to. So we’re gonna livestream them all!
Please contribute to the musicians if you can! Venmo @karenandthesorrows and your tips will all go directly to the bands. And if you’re in Brooklyn, you can still order delivery from Branded! Head over to www.brandedsaloon.com to support our favorite bar.
Now let’s talk about this kickass line-up:
First of all, we’ve got the band Mery Steel from Columbus, OH. I got to play with them on tour this fall and omg they are so, so good. They just released a live video album and this song is my favorite—it’s been in my head since November: https://youtu.be/vCveC4HeW18.
Second of all, we have country crooner Andrew Sa from Chicago and omg his voice! People throw the term “voice of an angel” around a lot, but sometimes that’s the only correct description. He’s got a new album coming out soon that I can’t share with you yet, but trust me it is really special. Here’s a preview of one of the songs from the fabulous cosmic country shows he curates in Chicago! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9kKHjvQn5s
Third of all, we’ve got our hometown hero Viva, who is going to share some new songs from the musical western she’s been writing called called Beautiful, Evil, Lost. If you don’t already know what a guitar goddess Viva is, then please watch this asap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4_YNKtpfvA.
And of course, I’ll be your faithful host, as usual! And also do an opening set to kick things off. A little more about Karen & the Sorrows: www.karenandthesorrows.com
See you soon!
