Blocks Recording Club and the Gladstone Hotel present Thursday Confidential: “An Evening With Mantler”
2 sets: 8:30 and 10:30
Behold, lucky children of T.O. The eternally smooth, soulful, slinky and seductive sounds of Mantler will envelope and entertain you for not one but two solo sets of bittersweet balladry and magical melodies. Being that this show takes place in the same week as Saint Valentines’ Day, Mantler is promising inclusion of some R&B L-O-V-E songs amidst his usual glorious Wurlitzer-soaked originals.
2010 saw the release of the 4th Mantler long-player, instant classic ‘Monody’, described by Carl Wilson at Slate.com as “my default choice whenever I put on music this year.” If you ain’t got it, get it (available on vinyl at this show on the Blocks merch table).
