IMPUDENT TAILLIGHTS CHICAGO

August 28, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PHILADELPHIA PHIL IMPUDENT TAILLIGHTS TOUR 2010 CHICAGO DATES

Poet/Songwriter/Guitarist Philadelphia Phil comes to Chicago for two appearances in September. Touring in support of new music, video releases, and a poetry chapbook, he plays the Elbo Room (2871 North Lincoln) on September 15th and Lilly’s Bar (2513 North Lincoln) on September 18th.

Audiences know Philadelphia Phil for his often cerebral, occasionally ironic songs, and energetic, sometimes complex guitar arrangements. Impudent Taillights is no exception, and includes influences from the Mississippi Delta, New Orleans, Memphis, and Cuba. Not surprising- Philadelphia Phil speaks several languages, and has lead World Music ensembles in such far-reaching idioms as Jamaican Reggae, West African Soukous, Cuban Mambo, South African Soweto Beat and Brazilian Tropicalia. Then, of course, there’s Ragtime. His approach is instinctual, free, and entirely homegrown. Stops on the tour include either solo or band takes on music from Impudent Taillights, and songs heard only at live shows.

Philadelphia Phil, the poet, has published work from India and Japan, to London, the Caribbean and the United States. His work has appeared in prestigious literary journals, including New York Quarterly, The Caribbean Writer, Lullwater Review, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, and Gargoyle. A dynamic poet who combines linguistic pyrotechnics with intense emotion, he has thrilled audiences throughout the country at poetry readings, sans guitar. Every appearance on the Impudent Taillights Tour is spiced with a few bluesy poems, including the title track of both cd and poetry book, Impudent Taillights.

Midwest stops on The Impudent Taillights Tour 2010 include Warrensburg, Mo, Grafton, Springfield, and Chicago, Illinois, Indianapolis, Marion, Muncie and Nashville, Indiana, Louisville, Lexington and Danville, Kentucky. An east coast tour includes Lenhartsville, Media, Philadelphia, Williamsport and New Hope, Pennsylvania, and Barrington, New Jersey.
