Big Lazy and Mamie Minch
Sunday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. — PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts in Putney announces a performance featuring two underground bands from the Brooklyn Barbés scene, on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Big Lazy has flourished for over two decades in NYC’s downtown music scene. Simultaneously noir and pastoral, gothic and modern, the trio conjures images from big sky country to seedy back rooms with cinematic clarity. With a nod towards classic guitar instrumentals and a fiery performance style, their most recent album, Dear Trouble, captures the essence of their legendary live shows.
“Music can get past our conscious mind, and it can impact how we move and what we feel. Big Lazy is infectious,” says Keith Marks, Executive Director of Next Stage Arts. “Their music has a soulfulness and grit that’s hard to describe. A-level jazz musicians doing southern instrumental soul. It’s powerful stuff.”
Mamie Minch is a longtime staple of New York’s acoustic blues scene. Listening to her sing and play is like unpacking a time capsule of American music that’s been stored in her 1930’s National steel guitar for decades and filtered through a modern femme sensitivity. Mamie’s newest release Slow Burn is a collaboration with drummer/producer Dean Sharenow that sees her traditional influences stretch out, turn up, and get deeper, groovier, funkier.
