Don’t Miss Juliana Hatfield on Thursday Night at Mercury LoungeApril 24th, 2017
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Juliana Hatfield has had a long, distinguished career in alternative rock, doing time with the Lemonheads, Blake Babies, Some Girls, Minor Alps and the Juliana Hatfield Three in addition to her much-acclaimed work as a solo performer. And despite thinking her songwriting career was on hiatus, or perhaps even finished, she found herself inspired by last year’s presidential election: “All of these songs just started pouring out of me. And I felt an urgency to record them.” As a result, Hatfield (above, her video for new single “Short Fingered Man”) has a new album, Pussycat, out on Friday, and she celebrates its arrival with a pair of shows this week at Mercury Lounge—the first on Wednesday night, which is already sold out, and then again on Thursday. Singer-songwriter Laura Stevenson opens each performance.
