John Doe & Jill Sobule tomorrow at Alberta Rose

I know Marychris has mentioned this one in an earlier post, but you really shouldn't miss this one Thursday at the Alberta Rose - the perfect venue for this show.  These two outstanding singer-songwriter have been touring together for the past few months to great reviews -- they also recorded A Day At The Pass together last year, which you can read about and hear at Jill's website .... Had the chance to hear and meet Jill earlier this year and she totally knocked me out as a live performer (I had know her as a respected, kick-ass songwriter) and a delightful person (always a plus in my book!). Here's a good interview with Jill about her music and working with John  ...  8 pm, $20 advance/$25 door

This from the Alberta Rose:
Tickets are still available for one of the most promising musical collaborations of 2011--John Doe and Jill Sobule. Doe (yes, that John Doe--frontman for the legendary X as well as an icon/pioneer of both punk and alt-country ), and Sobule (of "I Kissed A Girl" fame and a recent Alberta Rose appearance alongside the great Julia Sweeney) will perform songs from their new album, A Day at the Pass as well as some Sobule, Doe and X favorites. 
Check out this incredible rendition of "Burning House of Love" from March 2011!
Here's an "official" video of "Under the Bridge" from 2011!
