A few weeks ago, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies announced an extensive Fall tour. A few select dates received a “Masquerade Ball of Light & Dark”, in which attendees are encouraged to dress up in black and/or white, as well as wear a masquerade mask (available at the merch table at each show). While the band will play originals, there is also a musical theme for each show.
On Saturday, November 5th, the Babies will play NYC’s American Beauty and tackle David Bowie‘s Blackstar, the icon’s final album before his unfortunate passing, as well as some other choice cuts. Expect some very special guests for the Bowie performance. Purchase tickets here.
Up and coming, Boston-based folkadelic act Hayley Jane & The Primates will act as support for the NYC play. Winners of a New England Music Award, Americana/Roots Act of the Year in 2014, the group has taken off over the last year, with solid musicians led by the dominant stage presence of Hayley Jane.
With regards to the masquerade theme, Hamilton explained, “A group of our fans in Rhode Island organized a group of people to wear masks similar to the characters from the cover of our Epic Battle Between Light & Dark album cover to a show, and we just loved it….It was super cool to play to an audience that was dressed up like that, and we wanted to expand on the concept.” He continued by saying, “working on and rehearsing these songs has already been incredible, we can’t wait for the show.”
