CONTEST CLOSED: Congratulations to martiroam and threeputt!
This Friday night, Outpost in the Burbs presents Lauren Fox performing the songs of Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen with special guest Kenny White and Baristanet has Two pairs of tickets to give away!
The affair of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen in the late 1960s only lasted a few months, but its resonance in the songs of these two iconic singer-songwriters is far-reaching. This intimate, dramatic and sultry show is performed to perfection by the hottest star on New York City’s cabaret scene today –as Lauren Fox and her trio perform 16 songs — nine by Joni Mitchell and seven by Leonard Cohen –into a spellbinding his-and-hers dialogue that brings new depth to Joni’s and Leonard’s body of work. Lauren Fox was named The Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs’ Female Debut Artist of the Year 2012 and Debut Artist of the Year at the 27th annual Bistro Awards. The New York Times said that hers was “the most transfixing performance of the evening.”
At Outpost’s recent benefit show with Jimmy Webb, opening act Kenny White sold more CD’s and generated more buzz than any opening act. Many in the audience were learning of his astounding talent for the first time.
In consideration of the amazing response to Kenny’s performance Outpost confirmed that he’ll do an extended opening set for this show. If you just discovered him at our benefit, here’s a chance to experience his great songwriting, stellar musicianship and amusing banter again. If you’ve never seen him, you already missed one opportunity, don’t let that happen again.
