Black To The Garden ... @ The Cutting Room 3/21 8PM

by JJJr on March 10th, 2014

I'm so excited!  You have no idea where we're going next.  I'm excited to bring this very special show to The Cutting Room, one of my favorite venues in NYC.  And since I'm really into using the word "Excited" this week, I'm most excited to announce that my special guest, and fellow Joni-lover, Bridget Barkan, will be stopping by for a song or two.  Get on down to The Cutting Room next week.  Bring your hoe, and let's go "Black To The Garden"!!!

Oh, here's some info from the press release (which I wrote myself, cuz you know how I [like to] do EVERYTHING myself, right?)

James Jackson, Jr. - “Black To The Garden”
Friday, March 21st
@ The Cutting Room
Tix: $15 in advance / $20 @ the door
Performance Artist, James Jackson, Jr. sings an ode to the music that made him who he is.  “James has that little something extra!”  Call him what you want.  Just don’t call him “Fabulous”.  This acclaimed vocalist and story-teller comes to The Cutting Room and sings the tale of what built the stage persona who has performed in some of the coolest venues in New York City and beyond.  It’s not your ordinary night of soul, but then again, it never was.  James invites you to “Come have a meeting on the bridge he’s built between the soul, the folk, the rhythm, and the blues.”  I’ll bet you didn’t even know he owned a pair of Birkenstocks.  In his new inter-active solo show, the reigning (and self-proclaimed) High Brown Priestess of Story Telling takes a walk down Memory Lane to musically show you why the darker side of Broadway just wasn’t for him, and why the soaring soprano of Joni Mitchell always made him want to smoke more and fall in love with white boys less. 
With a soul-tastic band lead by the multi-talented, and ever charming Elliot Roth, James has a night of musical truth-telling planned that will definitely bring you all the way Black To The Garden.  Sometimes you have to give everything to get back to yourself.
Advance tickets:
Friday, 3/21 @8PM (doors open at 6:30PM)
