It’s a Nugget if You Dug It - Nuggets 40th + 2 Anniversary feat. members of the Patti Smith Band: Tony Shanahan, Lenny Kaye and Special Guests Glen Burtnik, Joan Osborne, Marshall Crenshaw, Steve Wynn & Kevn Kinney - 6/186:00 PM Doors / 8:00 PM Start
In the first of a series of residency concerts continuing monthly through the summer, the City Winery is proud to present Symphony For The Devils, originally gathered together as the house band for our Rolling Stones tribute at Carnegie Hall in 2012. The members are Lenny Kaye, Tony Shanahan and Jay Dee Daugherty of Patti Smith’s band; Jack Petruzelli of the Fab Faux, and will include special guest artists. Each show will feature different themes commemorating rock’s greatest songs, and on June 18, the series will kick off with a heartfelt tribute to a groundbreaking compilation.
Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era is one of the most acclaimed rock anthologies ever. First released in 1972 on Elektra Records, celebrating the golden era of what would become known as 1960s garage-rock, the album has continued to be a template and inspiration for generations of bands, who find within its collected classics the original heartbeat of rock and roll, and the sense of possibility and desire that is at the core of artistic renewal and creativity.
Symphony For The Devils looks forward to turning up the fuzztone, setting the phasers and flangers on stun, and turning up the volume on the Seeds, the Music Machine, The Strangeloves, the Blues Magoos, the Nazz, the 13th Floor Elevators, and the Mysterians, and many other psychic explorers of the tune-up and turn-on of the American garage. A hallucinogenic time is guaranteed for all.
