North Adams eZine for week of October 10, 2005

Bringing their unique hybrid of country, soul, jazz, and avant-guard noise to the Berkshires, Lambchop, the alt-country band native to Nashville boasting over a dozen members, will perform in concert in MASS MoCA's Hunter Center on Saturday, October 15, at 8 P.M. Tickets are $15.00 in advance, $18.00 on the day of the show. Rolling Stone describes Lambchop as "A little bit o' twang with a pinch of soul, a mini-orchestra that plays with the attitude of Salvation Army buskers and the chops of an indie-rock band." Full dinners, snacks, and sweets are available for purchase from Lickety Split. The MASS MoCA Bar serves beer, wine, and liquor as well. MASS MoCA's Becoming Animal performing arts programming is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Valley Advocate and The Porches Inn sponsor Lambchop in concert. Call the MoCA box office for more information, 662-2111.
