Erykah Badu will perform at Rams Head Live December 2, it was announced Wednesday. Consider that an early Christmas present. Badu puts on an exceptional show, clever, iconoclastic, a blast.
She's promoting her two-part album, "New Amerikah," whose second half was released in Spring of last year. You might have seen "Window Seat" already, give the tender "Out of my Mind" a try. Tickets, at $75, go on sale Friday.
Also December 2, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, fresh from a bunch of festival dates, like All Good in West Virginia, will perform at the Ottobar. Tickets, at $15, are already on sale.
The Ottobar has an impressive line-up of local bands scheduled to finish off the year. On December 16, Dan Deacon, Celebration and Matmos are all scheduled to perform. Tickets, at $10, are on sale.
Deacon's plugging a couple of re-releases: "Meetle Mice," "Silly Hat vs. Eagle Hat," and "Spiderman of the Rings" on LP.
