Watch TV Tonight
Today, I am repeating a message from Norton Records because it bears repeating!
MARY WEISS ON CONAN TONITE WITH REIGNING SOUND!
TUES • MAR 13 MARY WEISS ON LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN SHOW! Tune in wherever you are for this auspicious occasion! Mary Weiss backed by Reigning Sound! Get your TV dinners ready as Mary makes ner network debut with sounds from her first solo album DANGEROUS GAME!
These are photos of Mary Weiss and The Reigning Sound that I took over the hot, hot summer of 2006 in Brooklyn, NY while they were recording "Dangerous Game." I feel so close to this project, since I heard it in progress and have been in full swoon mode ever since.
Here are some reviews, compiled by Norton
Dig the grapevine gab....
Mary Weiss is "Worth the Wait" (Rolling Stone)
Former lead singer of the Shangri-Las, Mary Weiss has been out of the spotlight for 40 years. Now, she is back with a solo debut, 'Dangerous Game' (Norton
Records), one of the most talked about albums of 2007. Catch her on Conan
O'Brien tonight and this Thursday at the Norton Records Showcase at the Red
Seven Club at SXSW!
CONAN O'BRIEN PERFORMANCE TONIGHT
CATCH MARY AT SXSW ON MARCH 15 AT RED SEVEN
Dangerous Game,'(Norton Records), Mary Weiss' solo debut and first recording
in forty years has been "worth the wait" according to Rolling Stone. Take a
look at what we are reading about the album below. SXSW attendees will have the
opportunity to see Mary Weiss make history when she performs on Thursday, March 15 at Red Seven. Weiss walked away from the spotlight in 1968, and with the exception of a recent album release show in Cleveland, this will be her first live performance in decades. She'll be joined by Memphis garage rockers The Reigning Sound, who also backed her on the album.
"Equal parts 1967 and 2007: a catchy modern garage-rock record " -NEW YORK TIMES, March 2007
"One of the rock era's most anticipated comebacks."
-NEW YORK MAGAZINE, March 2007
"A remarkable solo debut."
-NEW YORKER, February 2007
"Worth the wait. Weiss has the same brash attitude she had more than forty years ago. Let's hear it for the girl."
-Rolling Stone, March 2007
"[Dangerous Game's] true asset is its star, whose voice remains a beautifully
imperfect mix of icy cool and heartbreak."
-TIME OUT NY, March 2007
"A special thrill."
-NY DAILY NEWS, February 2007
