Tonight, at the Slane Public House in Greenwich Village, friend of the bastard and all-around great guy Shane Murphy will be celebrating the release of his new CD, Open Hearth. Anyone in the vicinity of Bleecker and MacDougal Streets would be well advised to give Shane an ear. As an added inducement, the flagship of the Mamoun's Falafel Restaurant empire is right down the street from Slane's.
Without further ado, here's Shane's rendition of the Basque song Txoria Txori:
I have to take a moment to say, in all seriousness, that I am fortunate to know so many really talented, awesome people- if I weren't so lazy about labeling my posts, the "Friend of the Bastard" tag would be a sure indicator of some high-quality entertainment.
