A Big Week: NBC Tuesday, World Cafe Wednesday, Smithsonian Thursday, Baltimore Friday

Wow.  Our Show De Bola in NYC was a huge success!  Thank you for coming out to Joe’s Pub and being a part of something truly special.  You’ll have one more chance to check out my collaboration with the amazingly wonderful Denise Reis this Wednesday in Philadelphia.  My tour dates for the season are almost done.  The number of shows may be winding down, but the band isn’t!  We’re going out in grand style this week with some fantastic shows in Philly, DC and Baltimore. Or maybe you’ll just see me on TV.

NBC’s The 10! Show
Channel 10 NBC Philadelphia and it’s morning talk show have been great supporters of my music since my album came out, and I’m thrilled to be performing live with Denise Reis in advance of our show at World Cafe Live.   Live in the Philly area and want to be in the studio audience Tuesday morning? Email audience coordinator colin.mcandrew @ nbcuni.com. (The show tapes starting at 10am.)  Don’t live in the Philly area or don’t like waking up before 2pm?  I will be posting the episode soon after it airs.

Take 5! at the Smithsonian Museum
The band returns to our nation’s capital for a night at the museum.  We have been honored with an invitation to perform at the prestigious Smithsonian American Art Museum.  I’m guessing they have never had any TLC performed there, so we will gladly do the honors.  The event is free and open to the public, so there is really no reason for you not to be there.

An Die Musik Finale in Baltimore
The Spring Tour Grand Finale belongs to Baltimore.  I’ve come to know and love Charm City recently. (Did you know that’s what people call Baltimore?  True story.)  Bawlmer is also known for some quirky performance art spaces, and I’m excited that our last show of the tour will be held in this awesomely quirky theater above a record store.  We’ll be doing a substantial program in this lovely venue – check it.
