The Mila Drumke Band--Mila Drumke (vocals, guitar), Lyris Hung (violin) and Elissa Linowes (bass)--perform regularly in New York City at the Mercury Lounge, Arlene Grocery, Fez and the Bowery Ballroom. They also tour clubs and colleges throughout the Northeast and Midwest.
Drumke's first release, Gathering My Name (1994 Little Pro Records), features "Someone," which she wrote and recorded as the theme song for the Samuel Goldwyn film Go Fish. Go Fish was distributed worldwide and had no other accompanying soundtrack. "Someone" is also featured on The Independent Film Channel compilation album In Your Ear (1999 Hybrid/IMI Trax), which also includes songs by Tom Waits, The Pogues and Morphine.
Since, um, I've seen Go Fish. You'd think I'd remember the music. Senior moment. S.
Rachael Yamagata got a nice write-up in Venus Zine a bit ago, so there's that. . . they're having a party at The Empty Bottle two weeks from today, by the way. And there are lots of shows there I'm not mentioning, as well as some others at Schuba's. And yes, this is much, much longer than I'd intended it to be already, so just a brief mention of Eight: 18 @ Unity, this evening and every first Friday evening, at Unity Chicago, 1925 Thome. Bellydancing, blacklight body painting, SHE DRUMS, the Women's Community Drum Circle, and lots lots more.
Really, there's lots, but I said I'd be brief, and meant to actually keep my word for a change.
