Uptown Playlist Theater Updates


by Josh Theisinger

Next week could not come soon enough. The anticipation is almost like Christmas.  It's going to be the busiest week in the Uptown Playlist Theater's history.  Wednesday, April 6th kicks off with one of the original alumni and possibly the most popular artist: Griffin House.  As ray mentioned last week, for both of the Griffin House shows, Griffin has added Chris Farney. He plays drums and bass at the same time and also mandolin and guitar. Chris appeared with Griffin here several years ago.  Tickets for Griffin's Wednesday show are still available here.  But if that wasn't enough he is also slated to perform a sold out show on Saturday, April 9th as well.  

But why stop with just Griffin House?  On Friday, April 8th, Ray Wylie Hubbard swings through town for a sold-out, one night only show with a trio that has never been featured here before!  His son Lucas is performing with him as he did on their appearance on Late Night with David Letterman.  

There really isn't any other way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Playlist Theater than with a packed weekend of music.  We can tell you now that this place is going to be rockin' all week.  

Don't forget that not many tickets are left for Bill Kirchen on Friday April 13. This will be the last show for about a month before Paul Cebar comes in on May 21st and the Dustbowl Revival romps through on Wednesday June 1st. 

For those of you who missed out on a past performer Margo Price and the Pricetags, don't fret.  On Saturday April 9th, Margo makes her debut performance on Saturday Night Live as the special musical performance.  The show will be hosted by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe.  But that's not it, Margo's song "Hurtin'" was featured in the New York Time's "25 Songs That Tell Us Where Music Is Going."  The article can be found here, with Margo being featured at #7.  She also recently made an appearance on the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert."
