Music Andrew London Trio | Live at the Point
January 27, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
An impressive lineup of artists below for this coming Live at the Point music event.
Recent reviewers of London’s lyrical skills have made comparisons to John Clarke, Tim Minchin, Flanders and Swann, Tom Lehrer…even Noel Coward, and after a recent appearance live on NZ’s National Radio, one commentator remarked “The Andrew London Trio are Flight of the Conchords for Rest Homes!”. According to Downbeat USA, his 2004 album ‘Toasted’ , ‘…. lured listeners in with eccentric edges and devilishly clever wordplay’. A decade later the same publication reported that his album ‘Ladies a Plate’ ‘…reaches high levels of poise and affability while imparting witty lyrics that would draw quiet laughs of agreement from Mose Allison and Dave Frishberg’.
