Episode 10 of Live @ The Alley feature Martha Berner and Indiana's The Starside. If you missed it you should also check out last week's episode with Blah Blah Blah and Urbanites.


Rego Seconds

Rebecca Rego has one of those magnetic voices that can simply do no wrong. Next month her band, Rego, returns with their fourth studio album since their debut in 2006, and the album finds them moving in a subtly new direction. Rebecca's vocals on Seconds are beautifully highlighted through the album with a deep tapestry of skillfully pluck guitars, trumpets, and warm drums sounds. Rego is a band that deserves something big and they may just get it with Seconds.

Rego is celebrating the release of Seconds at Lincoln Hall on Feb. 11th.
