Amy Lavere at the World Cafe Live


Tomorrow night, rockabilly pioneer Wanda Jackson headlines the Trocadero (with Imelda May opening). Tonight, Amy Lavere, who played Jackson in the Johnny Cash and June Carter biopic Walk The Line, plays upstairs at the World Cafe LiveIf you know one Amy Lavere song, it's probably "Kiling Him," the tale of murder and undying love from her 2007 Jim Dickinson-produced album, Anchors & Anvils. There are lot more worth knowing, however, on the superb, brand new Stranger Me, the upright bass playing Memphian's third album, starting with "Damn Love Song," which you can see below in a performance from Threadgill's in Austin, Texas at this year's SXSW. Hear Stranger Me in its entirety over at NPR Music here. Show details here.
