Happy birthday, Elliott…

Green Street Grill, 2008

I see I almost missed this, shame on me. A very happy birthday to Mr. Elliott Smith, who would have been 44 today. A wonderful musician and beautiful soul, sadly missed.

This is a performance from Green Street Grill in 1998, released to the world as the most lovely Christmas present back in 2011 by the legendary Boston musician Mary Lou Lord. If you’re not familiar with it, you can read more about it and download the entire performance from The Boston Phoenix. By the way, it also features another kind soul taken from us too soon, Mr. Billy Ruane.

Marching boldly into my latest installment of “Boston Bands This Week”. We start with “a classic”, Mary Lou Lord, whom I must be recalling from the early 90s when I first moved to Boston. She’s doing a special acoustic performance on Wednesday at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, which will probably sell out if it hasn’t already. Then there’s a few very cool bands playing at P.A.’s Lounge on Friday, including a personal favorite, the wacky and wonderful John Powhida International Airport. Finally on Saturday, there’s a CD release party for someone who just recently came to my attention, Somerville-based singer-songwriter Danielle Doyle, who’s joined, once again, by some cool local bands – this time, in the acoustic, ambient, and Americana vein.
