St. Paul and the Broken Bones at The Egg

St Paul and the Broken Bones

The soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones is set to play a show at The Egg March 5. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $35 and up.

From a profile of frontman Paul Janeway at Rolling Stone:

These days, Janeway channels fire-and-brimstone energy as the frontman of St. Paul and the Broken Bones. During the band's feverish live shows, he yelps, screams, croons and often dives into the audience. At a gig in South Carolina recently, Janeway hoisted himself onto an audience member's back. "He's a cat who can do an Otis Redding - he's very interesting to watch," Keith Richards told Rolling Stone last year, after St. Paul and the Broken Bones opened up for the Stones. Janeway isn't shy talking about his ability to fire up a crowd. "Our booking agent was like, 'Just be proud you're opening for the Stones, but nobody's going to pay attention to you,'" he says. "I was like, 'F[---] that. I'll get them to pay attention.' And I got them to pay attention."

I'm glad to see people involved in community decisions. But at the same time, we can't just keep saying we want development "somewhere else" or "not in my backyard!". Having mini-suburbs in the city of Albany was feasible at one point in time, and now development is catching up. ...
