Introducing the Greendale Band
A month ago we mentioned that Neil Young's Greendale, already an album and movie, would be getting the stage treatment, courtesy the Undermain Theatre via a special partnership with Wixen Music Publishing. The production, a world premiere, previews at the Undermain March 26-28, then runs March 29 through May 3, and today the Undermain announced the musicians who'll make up the band performing during the show: New Bohemians guitarist Kenny Withrow, former Course of Empire bassist Paul Semrad and Brave Combo drummer Alan Emert. Sounds terrific, though I was kind of expecting someone from the late, great Slobberbone. --Robert Wilonsky
