Way back in March of this year, when Cause A Scene was still in its infancy after just 3 shows, I received an email asking if we’d be interested in hosting Bill Mallonee for a house show this year. I don’t think I have ever typed a faster “Yes!” response in my life. As one of Paste Magazine’s “100 Greatest Living Songwriters” Mallonee is one of the most prolific songwriters of our era, first as the lead singer of Vigilantes of Love and now as a solo act. Years ago I remember hearing a friend in Birmingham describe Bill as the greatest songwriter he has ever heard, and if he’s not the best, he certainly deserves to be in the discussion as one of the greatest. It had been a dream of mine to see Bill perform ever since hearing my friend wax poetic about his music, I just never knew it would be in my own living room. I think you’ll see the reason for all the fuss if you’re able to be at the show this Saturday.
Cause A Scene is also proud to bring you The Olive Tree who will be opening the night. We’re really just pinching ourselves to make sure this show is real. Tickets are available in advance for $8 via Eventbrite (reserve ticket online, pay at the door) and will also be available for $12 at the door. This show will be worth every single penny. Can’t wait to see you all there!
