The Last Town Chorus play the Hawthorne Theatre October 4th. Although not exactly a band The Last Town Chorus is the revolving ensemble led by singer/writer/lap-steel-guitarist Megan Hickey. I'm not sure if it's her voice or how she wrangles the lap steel but she is very beguiling. And others have been beguiled too – “She sings like an Angel and plays lap steel guitar like the Devil.” – Village Voice, “The Last Town Chorus' aching lap-steel sound moves men to tears” – Chicago Tribune, “Strange, dark magic…” – Sunday Times (UK). Here's a video of her take on Bowie's Modern Love.
