Live performance & chat with Micah Blue Smaldone
Micah Blue Smaldone, favors songwriting that harkens back to an earlier age. This native of Kennebunkport, Maine began his musical career as a punker but found folk music with a 12-string far more satisfying. In addition to releasing several solo discs, Smaldone also performs with Fire On Fire and Death Vessel. Micah did a few tunes for Irene on a recent swing through town on the eve of his latest album release, "The Red River."

  3:47pm Turtle:

  3:48pm rick:

Morgan Taylor's vocals bear an uncanny resemblance to Joe Pernice. Maybe he is Joe Pernice under another name??
  3:51pm Plinky:

Dando Shaft is dope. Better than Evan Dando and Shaft combined.

I am trying to get my mind around the idea of Evan Dando and Shaft combined. Um, who's the black private dick that's constantly mumbling on stage?
  4:05pm Cecile:

evan dando and shaft is like making sauerkraut and marshmallows into a salad.
  4:10pm Plinky:

btw I was thinking Shaft the band not Richard Roundtree - no one is better than THAT Shaft
  4:12pm Cecile:

Oh, there's a Shaft band?
You are right, that original Shaft is a bad mother--
  4:13pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

...shut your mouf!
  4:15pm Plinky:


I think Neil should just do a cover of the Shaft theme right now

Actually, Sandy Denny has the best voice ever. Period.
Thanks, Irene!
  4:47pm Doug in DC:

Did anyone else see Little Pink at Velvet Lounge in DC this weekend? The vocals kinda reminded me of the sound of Sandy Denny or Linda Thompson.
