Victoria Wasserman’s release party for Victoria Naomi STFU happens October 29 at House of Blues. “I’ll be giving out CDs and performing some of my favorite Amy Winehouse songs, as well as my own material,” she says. “I’m also playing for the first time, live with a full band, my single ‘STFU.’ Despite the title, it’s actually a comical semi-feminist love song.”
Nicey Nice World (the trio version of experimental ensemble Nice World) will premiere their 8 Times Larger Than Earth album at the Black Cat Bar on October 29. “We’ll be playing two sets of music,” promises Marcelo Radulovich, who’ll be backed by James Call (the Penetrators) and Joyce Rooks (the Dinettes). In addition, “We’ll have some very talented folks coming in here and there, playing by themselves, as well as joining us for some improvisations.”
