Show Preview: Josh Damigo At Lestat's, 9.3.09

If you've been following along (especially on twitter), you know that I met Josh Damigo at NPMT and we've become fast friends. Obviously I knew about Josh as he's been in my listings for quite some time, but I've been shy of the local singer-songwriter scene if only because other people more involved can cover it much better than I can. And I don't drink coffee. But that's the funny thing, in high school I ran two extremes...the local straight edge hardcore scene and the singer songwriter thing, seeing a show at "Club Mitch" with 5 hardcore bands on one night, then going to Java Joe's or Intermezzo Espresso on another. I like aggression and I also love to get weepy.

Josh was kind enough to blog his first solo tour of the midwest for the blog a couple weeks ago and the dude is a hardworking and extremely talented musician, and now I'm glad I can call him a friend (my new BFF, as you know from my tweets). Josh is playing at Lestat's this Thursday night and there are a lot of reasons to be there. He's playing with Chris Ayer from NY who is great, the show is a low cover...$5 or $6 bucks, Josh's SDMA nominated CD Raw will be available for $10 (instead of the usual $15), and everyone who attends gets a gift from Josh (which I can't announce but if you're a fan, you'll definitely want.)

All that said, I caught Josh tonight at Lestat's during Open Mic doing a little preview for his show on Thursday and I wanted to share it with you.
