Jedediah Parish solo in BK and on the Internet Friday June 28

The Way Station
683 Washington Ave
Prospect Heights Brooklyn

There’s a little stage and red booths. Perfect.

Later The Kings County Ramblers and Salt Cracker Crazies will be playing good American music with banjos, jugs and slides so clearly Jed will sound like Deep Purple by comparison.

And if you can’t make it, you can watch it on Gander.tv

Jed sings at Losers Lounge Tribute to Elvis Costello

photo_blackim_costelloFor Jedediah Parish all roads sort of lead back to Elvis Costello. The first time Jed sang with Losers Lounge was the E.C. tribute at Fez in 2002. But Costello was the big songwriting and singing influence, particularly for Jed’s rockandroll band The Gravel Pit. Reviewers, friends, strangers would say “You guys sound like Elvis Costello & The Attractions” and Jed would say “Thank You”. Sometimes fellow musicians would dismiss the band as an Attractions rip-off in a saucy, adversarial manner, and Jed would say “Thank You. What bland, unmemorable band does your band pattern itself after?” Those days are gone, but Mr. Costello rears his head again.

Jedediah Parish sings backups and lead on an as-yet undetermined song with Losers Lounge at Joes Pub for their tribute to Elvis Costello.

Muppet Movie Sing-A-Long in Prospect Park

Right down the block from home base is a glorious oasis called Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. The park boasts big lovely meadows, a zoo and Brooklyn’s only natural forest. They also host Celebrate Brooklyn, an entire Summer of top-rate performances. This year one of those performances will be The Muppet Movie Sing-A-Long featuring the Losers Lounge. The evening starts at 6:30, exploring the oddly great catalog associated with the Muppets. (Losers Lounge have also explored the equally oddly great Sesame Street catalog). Then the entire original Muppet Movie will be shown.Debbie Harry with Muppets
