Amy Speace, Red Molly double up

I caught Amy Speace at a little club in Nashville during the September Americana Music Association conference and she was absolutely one of the highlights.

I knew she was based in New York, but imagine my surprise when I noted a listing for Speace and her band at the catchily named Mo Pitkin's House of Satisfaction on Avenue A in NYC on a rare free night.

(With a name like that, you might expect a massage during the show, but I digress.)

There are a couple of performance spaces in Mo's, and Amy cranked up in an upstairs room around 9:30. I got to hear some of the great songs I had liked from her CD, "Songs for Bright Street."

At one point, she was joined on some harmony by two singers from Red Molly. I had arrived too late to catch their opening set, and hadn't heard of them before. But I bought a CD, which now has a prime position on my CD player.

I also signed up for their mailing list and you can hear the rest from them directly. -- MichaelK/TBPAC
