Sunday Shoes / The Oak + The Ax

Aly Spaltro of Lady Lamb the Beekeeper returned home once again for a far more intimate show than her celebratory opening slot at the sold out State Theatre, where she opened for Beirut last month. Check out the Portland Daily Sun for the review I wrote of that show.

This time she took the stage at the charming and warm (very warm) Biddeford venue The Oak + The Ax. The last few times I have seen Lady Lamb play she has stuck pretty closely to a "hit" packed setlist, best showcased on the excellent "Live at Brighton Hall" download available from her website. But for this show - "among friends" - she broke out the deep cuts (including personal favorites "Solar, Solar System" and "Sunday Shoes") and debuted a number of new songs. She was also joined by the Milkman's Union's Henry Jamison (who opened the show) for one of the new "ditties", and Henry and his bandmate Peter McLaughlin joined on bass and drums for her final song.

It was a great time, and it was particularly wonderful to hear "Sunday Shoes" played - one of my favorite songs of all time and one of the first vinyl releases from Eternal Otter Records. One audience member even drove 2 hours to see the show in hopes of hearing the song - Aly dedicated the performance to him.

You can order a copy of "Sunday Shoes" (b/w "Metal Mouth" by TJ Metcalfe) here. We'll also send you an mp3 of a great live version of the song recorded for the vinyl release show.

We are also only 6 "Likes" away from 100 fans on Facebook. Become our 100th fan and you will receive a free copy of the single. You can checkout our facebook page here.

There is a lot in store for Eternal Otter Records this fall (including a new release from the Milkman's Union featuring Aly), and becoming a fan is a great way to stay up to date.


I also encourage you to head over to the Oak + The Ax tomorrow (Friday) at 8 pm for an excellent FREE show featuring NYC's Hungry March Band and Portland's The Dirty Dishes Burlesque Revue. Check out the faux newspaper I designed for the event:
