Hot Women Keep Wisconsin Warm

hotelcafe

Friday November 7  9:00pm (doors at 8:00)

High Noon Saloon 18+ show

“One bus, one band and a bunch of friends on the road.”

Hotel Cafe Tour, named after the Los Angeles coffee shop they all first met, is built on the promise of “No cookie cutter corporate American Idols, just real music, written by real artists, surrounded by real friends, who actually have a story to tell.” Instead of a competition between the up-and-coming indie artists, they share the stage in this one memorable night.

Twenty-one bucks gets you a night of 5 talented women singer songwriters who vocalize the feel-good-anthem for all women of the world.

Rachel Yamagata’s mood altering whispers serenade you to feel her vulnerability.

Meiko goes where no woman ever willingly choses to go, “openly proclaiming the sweetest secrets of her own beautiful heartbreak” (last.fm).

Thao Nguyen showcases a pop sound with roots in blues and indie-folk.

Jaymay’s layered and emotionally balanced songs will surely play your heartstrings.

And last but not least British soul singer Alice Russell’s soulful voice is paired with self assurance and sass.

So come relax for the night, and let the women of the Hotel Cafe Tour sing your new favorite song.

.

In this case good music also equals a good cause..

While the artists of Hotel Cafe warm your soul you’ll be helping keep Wisconsin warm. One dollar of each ticket sold will go to the Keep Wisconsin Warm Fund, which is a local non-profit dedicated to keeping the heat and power on for thousands of families in crisis. There will also be a raffle at the venue where you could win a variety of shiny fabulous prizes.

Media Roundup: 25 Bands of National Note

We at True Endeavors always perk up our ears when we hear media mentions of artists that will be or have been through town.  We want to share that content with our faithful blog readers.  After all, just because an artist’s show may be over doesn’t mean that their music stops moving us!

Please feel free to get involved by leaving comments on this, and all blog posts.  We want to hear about your experiences at True Endeavors shows and what the artists’ music means to you!

Bloggers have been seriously busy writing about the YEAH YEAH YEAHS, Rachael Yamagata, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, and Meiko. Locally based blog Muzzle of Bees gathered their Bon Iver posts together in anticipation of the band’s upcoming show in December.

Mog.com featured an entertaining conversational review of Blitzen Trapper’s new album, Furr.  Aquarium Drunkard features a nice, lengthy interview, plus mp3 downloads.  (They’ll be opening for Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks on October 30th.)

Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs new album, Dirt Don’t Hurt, got reviewed by the fine folks at Pitchfork, as did The Broken West’s new one, Now or Heaven.

The Spinto Band, which rolls into town on October 24th, has been profiled on everything from Spin to Daytrotter to PopMatters.

Madison favorite Feist recently released her new video for “Honey Honey.”

Alejandro Escovedo, Sonja Kitchell, Ray LaMontagne, and Stephin Merritt (of The Magnetic Fields) were recently featured on Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current, where they performed live in studio.

State Radio proves that music can still be politically relevant, and inspire a variety of passionate reactions with their anti-war song “Camillo.”

Check out the trippy new video from Eagles of Death Metal:

Last month, Milwaukee native, and inspirational Earth-friendly warrior Peter Mulvey returned to Madison on his “No Gasoline Tour.”  Want to find out how he did it?  Click here for pics and videos from the man himself!

Heather Browne, of the wildly popular I Am Fuel You Are Friends blog, detailed her impressions of Dr. Dog, Delta Spirit and Hacienda’s live show before they wowed Madison at the High Noon Saloon.

Also, check out a review of The Delta Spirit’s album from Earvolution.

Were you one of the lucky rabid Hold Steady fans to attend their show earlier this summer?  Hear front-man Craig Finn reflect on the artists that HE goes nuts for, and the music that moves him.

Alt-country legend Lucinda Williams stops in Madison on October 25th for her show at the Orpheum Theatre.  Earlier this month, she paid a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman and performed her brand new single, “Real Love.”  Check it out!
