Sean Rowe at Putnam Den

Check it out: Sean Rowe's playing a show at Putnam Den November 23 (yep, the day after Thanksgiving). Tickets are $10 at the door. Show's at 9 pm.

Rowe's been on tour in the US recently -- to good reviews. From the Philadephia Inquirer this week:

Equally thrilling was the show-opening set of spectral Americana by hand-picked tourmate Sean Rowe. Bearded, burly, and wrapped in well-worn flannel, Rowe resembles a distant relative of Bigfoot. With a dulcet baritone perched between the subwoofer-shaking pipes of Mark Lanegan and Leonard Cohen, he commands the the kind of gravitas associated with fiery-eyed Old Testament prophets or mud-caked Delta bluesmen. When he opened his mouth to sing, the din of clinking glasses and idle chatter and, for that matter, time itself, stopped dead.

And, of course, his new album came out a few months back.

The Putnam Den show might the last chance to catch him locally for awhile -- it it sounds like he's headed back to Europe to tour after the new year.

But, wait, there's more... The opener for the show at Putnam Den is Matthew Carefully.

And speaking of Mr. Carefully, he and Hunter Sagehorn -- as Rosary Beard -- are playing with Katie Haverly at the Foundry in Cohoes the next day (November 24). Show's at 7:30 pm. It's $5.

Oh, hey, look... It's a new Phantogram video.
