Jamestown Revival To Play The Sinclair

Jamestown Revival - “California” (Cast Iron Soul)

Jamestown Revival are an upcoming folk alt-country band from Austin, Texas.  I was able to catch them live a few months ago when they played the Brighton Music Hall with The Wild Feathers and Saints of Valory, and they sounded fantastic live.  Their debut album, Utah, is solid, and they’re definitely a band to keep an eye on in the months to come.

They’re playing The Sinclair in Cambridge on June 23rd (tickets on sale Friday at noon).  Additional tour dates here.

Celebration of David Lamb (Brown Bird) To Take Place Tuesday Evening


David Lamb at the Newport Folk Festival (2011)

In case you didn’t hear the news, David Lamb of the Rhode Island band, Brown Bird, passed away this weekend at the age of 35 from leukemia.  Tomorrow evening (Tuesday), an event will be at the Columbus Theatre in Providence to celebrate David’s life.  Additional information posted by Brown Bird’s manager can be found below.

Hi everyone, this is Tom, Brown Bird’s manager.

We are organizing a celebration of Dave’s life this Tuesday, April 8th. The event will be held at the Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI, and is free and open to the public. We asked some of Dave’s friends to play - Joe Fletcher, Death Vessel, Alec K Redfearn and Last Good Tooth. Doors will open at 7:30pm, and the event will start at 8:30. Please spread the word - we want a room full of fans, friends and family!

This has been a rough time but the amount of support that has been given has been beautiful and overwhelming. So many people felt a connection to Dave, and we really appreciate everyone that has shared their stories and thoughts.

R.I.P. David Lamb (Brown Bird)


David Lamb of the band Brown Bird has lost a 10-month battle with Leukemia. 

Just earlier this year, a benefit was held at Club Passim, where many artists covered Brown Bird songs.  I don’t think anyone thought he would leave us three short months later.

I know many of you saw him perform at the Newport Folk Festival or other local shows, as the band was based out of Rhode Island.

Below is a letter from MorganEve - his spouse and bandmate

Dear friends,

Over the past year, and especially this past week, I have been so overwhelmed and grateful for the amount of love that has surrounded Dave and me throughout our life and career together. You all have posted so many beautiful stories about Dave- how humble he was, how gracious, how talented…He certainly was all those things.

Four days after Dave and I met we became bandmates, lovers and business partners, and set the tone for what our life would be for the next six years. We never imagined the amount of success we would enjoy in those years, how many incredible friendships would be forged, the experiences we would share, and nothing could have prepared us for the events of this past year.

Dave entered the battle with leukemia as only Dave could- determined, steadfast, smiling and always with his mind on our future. His incredible ability to continue writing through his struggle is something I’ll forever aspire to.

This week was the toughest in the battle, as Dave’s body began to shut down under the stress of a year-long fight and a sudden and aggressive leukemic relapse.

Today, surrounded by his family and so many friends, Dave peacefully let go.

Thank you for all the love you’ve all shown us. It helped so very much to know we had an army behind us.

Love and gratitude,
