Philly’s own Low Cut Connie returns to First Avenue November for a night of rollicking rock and roll. Just when you thought the show promises to be about as good a night as you can get, they add Big Freedia to the bill. A few tickets still remain. Details can be found HERE.
Low Cut Connie might just be the best live act touring these days. Watching them tear the walls down last year when they rolled through town was one of 2018’s musical highlights. Since then, all they’ve done is tour. Gathering fans like a magnet sweeps up iron filings. But don’t take my word for it.
NPR wrote that their live show is “everything rock n should be.” The New York Times gushes: “Their live show is a phenomenon!” It also doesn’t hurt when the likes of Elton John volunteers that they’re his favorite band. No wonder. It’s what happens when you mix Adam Weiner, a piano pounding cross between Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Meatloaf, with great songs and a big band of road tested running mates. Trust me when I tell you this band comes right at you like Springsteen’s E Streeters.
Sweat will fly, along with lead guitar players. Grab your tickets now because the days of getting to see the band in as intimate a setting as First Avenue are limited. This is a band headed for the big time.
Admittedly, the band is making headway all across the land, but there is no doubt there exists a special relationship between the band and the Twin Cities. The Current was one of the first major radio stations to get on the bandwagon. The band has performed live in studio. Headlined Rock The Garden and been featured at 89.3’s Day Party down at SXSW. They’ve been fully behind the guys from the moment they first heard them. That kind of affinity cuts both ways.
Sharing the bill with LCC is New Orleans gender bender and Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia. It’s safe to say a packed First Avenue will have their dance shoes all warmed up by the time Big Freedia hits the stage. This one promises to be one for the ages. No doubt, music fans would be hard pressed to get more music and fun for the dollar than LCC and Big Freedia.
