Matt Lowell's Mercury Rising

by CLAIRE WILLETT · August 8, 2008


    Attention New Yorkers: city-bound and seething at your desktop? Cease yer hollerin' -one of Long Island's own is coming to Mercury Lounge to save your weekend (or at least your Friday's eve). Not so long ago, the gravely acoustic rocker Matt Lowell played a show at the Stephen Talkhouse that left us enraptured, and greedy for more. Lowell's music is full of feeling, but fuss-free -think Dave Matthews without the goose horn, or Martin Sexton, or a slightly less world-weary White Buffalo.
