I was introduced to Pink Martini many years ago at a small Sundance Film Festival condo party hosted by Mickey Cottrell. They played a couple of great sets in the living room and I’ve been a fan ever since. The group’s anticipated third album — entitled Hey Eugene! — is due out in May, but here’s a preview (in a clip from their recent cool PBS special). The title track, as lead singer China Forbes notes, is the story of meeting a guy at a party in the East Village… As she explains, they connected, but the guy never called her. What a jerk!
Anyway, its a great song. Can’t wait for the new CD!
Set your DVRs, you can catch a replay of the PBS special — Pink Martini Live: Discover the World — this Sunday, March 4th at 3:30 a.m. on WNET in NYC (and no doubt on other outlets).
