Ryan Adams returned to Carnegie Hall in New York in November 2014 for two shows, after last performing there in the winter of 2011. The 2014 shows were part of the ongoing tour for his self-titled album; unusually, these two gigs were solo affairs during a period in which Adams had been performing with his new electric band, the Shining, but they served to show Adams’ incredible versatility as a musician.
Louisville’s own The Tunesmiths have made a name for themselves with high energy performances and the deadly combination of rock n’ roll guitar mixed with R & B vocals. They’ve just released a new EP titled, Full Time Hustle. So hustle to the WFPK studios and celebrate with us this Friday at noon!
