Have another two weeks already come and gone? Well, I guess that means it’s time for another entry in our Lost City Winter Series! Tonight is the fourth show in the series, and it appeals to the lighter side of things. Come on down to the Dragonfly Lounge for four great acoustic-inspired performances. Read on below to see exactly what you’ll be getting for a measly $5 cover.
It’s been another two weeks, and that means it’s time for the next installment of our Lost City Winter Series. Tonight, we’ve got a very special show for a number of reasons. Read on to find out why and get a preview of what’s to come. Check out the facebook event here for more information.
For those of you who haven’t already checked out Ben Schapiro’s excellent album “617-797-5411” (stream it above or click below for more info), we’ve got another great reason to check it out. This incredibly intimate album has recently been updated to include Part II, which adds five new songs recorded this summer since the original release of the album. The album also updates a few earlier recordings. Physical copies coming soon.
“617-797-5411” is an intimate glimpse into the soul and psyche of Ben Schapiro, one of Madison’s best-loved underground musicians. Before leaving Madison for parts unknown, Ben was a staple of Madison’s house show scene, often as part of the band Dirty Jive. The album shows Ben’s skill and craftsmanship on the acoustic guitar without ever abandoning the delicacy and honesty of his poetry.
As you may know, we’ve recently begun working closely with Madison’s newest venue, the Dragonfly Lounge. Located below the beautiful Bellini Italian Restaurant (401 E. Washington), Dragonfly has been a small space for private events since Bellini was converted from a church (built in 1897) into one of Madison’s finest Italian restaurants. Now, the space serves as an intimate venue, and Mine All Mine has partnered with Dragonfly to fill the space. So far, our winter series has shown that Madison is more than ready to support a new venue with friendly faces.
