$8. advance online & $10. day of show.
Local Chattanooga musician & songwriter & Birmingham native
d. Mangione is one musician that a lot more people need to be aware of. Imagine slow rocking, intensely building, stormy, almost country blues soul ballads that will make You wonder why d. has not been a more prominently featured performer on our local scene. Maybe it’s her humble nature, but if all the powerful music bursting from the seams is any sign, a lot more people will be noticing her soon with her upcoming move to Seattle. On Friday Feb. 27th “d.” as her friends know her will host a going away party in the form of a concert featuring some of her favorite musician friends whom she has connected with during her time as a Chattanooga local musician. This show will build up to a full set of d.’s original songs and maybe a few special covers as a going away present to all those who’ve shown her support during her time here. A 25 year veteran of songwriting and performing, d. has one full recorded album under her belt, now out of print, titled “In Dog Years I’m Dead.” Which if we’re lucky copies may re-appear at this concert. Her attention grabbing vocals are somewhat reminiscent of a combination of Neko Case and Jill Andrews. d. is also a visual artist and prints of some of her paintings will be available at this show. The especially LOW admission price is d.’s going away gift to the Chattanooga community so there’s no excuse for missing out on this last chance to catch a future legend in action before setting sail for the big west coast scene . d.Mangione will also be joined onstage by Peggy Douglas Trio, Phoenix & Roberto, “The Unstoppable Jemal Traub,” Bethany Kidd (of River City Hustlers) plus “doodle” and Rev’rend#9. With more festivities T.B.A. Tickets are now onsale…(You might want to get yours in advance considering the packed house concerts Barking Legs Theater has been experiencing lately.) ~Robin Merritt ArtFRONT presentations
