Laid in Gold rocked Widow Brown’s in Danbury this past Saturday night. The six-piece rock band trekked up from New Britain to perform favorites off of their August 2013 Apothecary album. The group featured Mish Jolie on lead vocals, Jimmy Wolak on lead guitar, Tim Johnson on lead bass, Steve Boucher on rhythm guitar, and Brian Wolak on percussion.
They were stoked to be in Danbury before their upcoming March 8 gig at Zen Bar in Plainville (so stoked, in fact, that they broke out some new music for the event). It’s unclear when they’ll revisit this neck of the woods, but, in the way of live music, Widow Brown’s has some pretty exciting shows coming up.
On March 8, the tone will shift from rock to folk with Boston-native Christa Gniadek. Her set will likely feature songs from her newest album, Leaving Boston, which is available on iTunes, Amazon, and on Pandora.
Gniadek writes, “The theme of #LeavingBoston is about going to new places personally, musically - about remembering what gave you your patterns, your characteristics, where you're strong, where you're weak, when you've been strong and when you've been weak, and bringing all of that along with you... And quite literally for me it also meant bringing that along on the road.”
Her first step in, literally, leaving Boston is sharing her music with Danbury locals. Rock/blues band Meteor are also set to perform Widows on the night of March 8, with acoustic artists Shane Loerro and Steve Powers booked for the following Saturday, March 15.
Widow Brown’s is located at 128 Federal Road in Danbury. For more info about upcoming performances, trivia nights, karaoke, and other events at Widow Brown’s, check out their site, www.widowbrowns.com.
