Concert Recommendation: David Mead, Schuba's, Friday, November 7
Not sure why Mead is touring now since he hasn't released an album
since 2001's Mine and Yours.
But it's a fine album. Unlike many singer/songwriters, Mead realizes
that songs consist of more than just lyrics, and he crafts some catchy
melodies to accompany his words. Or maybe all you need to know is that
it was produced by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and bears an
obvious stamp of the collaboration.
The other good thing about his playing Schuba's is that they've
redesigned their web site, making it
far less cumbersome.
David Mead plays with Mark Johnson at
Schuba's, 3159 N. Southport, Chicago,
773.525.2508 at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 7.
