Road Rambler Concert Series welcomes back author/ Rocker Amy Rigby!

“Singer-songwriter…doesn’t fully describe Rigby’s immense gifts and her devotion to the kind of pop and rock music that singer-songwriters often neglect.” — Nashville Scene “…one of the country’s best songwriters, with a mordant wit and keen eye for emotional detail.” — Chicago Reader “Her whimsical, often autobiographical songs are masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.” — New York Times “Rigby combines formidable aural craftsmanship with blunt, self-deprecating honesty.” — Village Voice Amy Rigby has been writing, performing and recording her transcendent songs about everyday life for over thirty years. A teenage denizen of CBGB who fell in love with country songwriting, she started bands Last Roundup and the Shams in NYC’s East Village before launching a solo career with album Diary Of A Mod Housewife. Her song "Don't Break The Heart" was recorded by Laura Cantrell, and “All I Want” was recorded by Ronnie Spector and included on The Very Best Of Ronnie Spector. Amy continues to tour and release new music including 2018 album The Old Guys, single “The President Can’t Read,” and “Vote That Fucker Out” (2020, with husband and sometime duo partner Wreckless Eric). Her first book, Girl To City: A Memoir was published in 2019.

Amy Rigby sets the small details and bigger truths of everyday life to music. From her debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife to her most recent album The Old Guys, she’s tackled themes associated with country and folk— getting by; getting along— from a rock music fan’s perspective. Her honest, imaginative songs and performances take listeners places they don’t expect to go and leave them smiling, tearing up and nodding in recognition. Celebrating creative heroes (Dancing With Joey Ramone; From Philiproth@gmail to Rzimmerman at aol dot com) to marital torpor (Are We Ever Gonna Have Sex Again) and love for the whole damn world (Don’t Ever Change) —well maybe not the whole world (The President Can’t Read)—Rigby tackles the feelings and foibles of modern life in arresting lyrics, on acoustic, electric and 12 string guitars. Her enthusiasm for pop, punk, psychedelia, garage and good old songcraft spill out on record and across the stage.

Reserved table seats $15.
