Lenny Kaye with the Craig Thatcher Band
ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks
Tonight will be an interesting night featuring our pal, Lenny Kaye of the Patti Smith Band. We'll be performing the garage band music (along with some cool '60s hits) that Lenny singled out for his world reknown album, "Nuggets," which is soon to be released in a 50th Anniversary Box Set.
You'll know most of the bands, maybe not the songs as many were "B" sides. So come out and hear something old...that may be new again. Fun time for all. Lenny will also read highligts from his award winning book, "Lightning Strikes." Hope you can join Chico, Billy, Cliff and I as we back Lenny on these fun tunes!
"This special show will celebrate the golden anniversary of Lenny's seminal anthology, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era 1965-68, originally released by Elektra Records, and the set will pay tribute to the garage-rockers that created a new genre in American rock and roll. It will be a preview for the 5 LP box set of Nuggets coming on Record Store Day, April 22, 1923, because it is, and always will be, A Nugget If You Dug It!"
