May 17, 2014 8 PM. Iris DeMent. A creative songwriter, Iris DeMent's fans waited sixteen years for her latest album, Sing The Delta, to be released. The Grammy nominated artist has enjoyed success with songs like the MTV Unplugged duet by David Byrne and Natalie Merchant Let The Mystery Be and Northern Exposure's use of "Our Town." Merle Haggard proclaimed of DeMent, "She's the best singer I've ever heard." Don't miss hearing her at Landmark! Hosted by WFUV's John Platt. Tickets: $47/$42.
June 14, 2014 8 PM. Jarrod Spector. Jarrod Spector, currently playing legendary songwriter Barry Mann in the new Broadway mega-hit Beautiful-The Carole King Musical for which he was just nominated for a Tony Award, will bring his acclaimed cabaret show, "A Little Help From My Friends," to Landmark On Main Street. Spector has been simultaneously earning raves for his performance in Beautiful and wowing crowds throughout the country with A Little Help From My Friends (also the title of his 2nd solo album, recorded at Live 54 Below). The New York Times' Stephen Holden called his show "witty, energetic and a highly polished mini-jukebox musical" and wrote that "Spector resembles a soft, clean-cut baby Bruce Springsteen." In addition, Holden said "Beautiful's Jarrod Spector pays tribute to performers from Little Richard to the Beach Boys to U2 in a show that celebrated the lineage more than any single artist."
Shortly before originating the role of Barry Mann in Beautiful, Jarrod Spector ended his tenure as Frankie Valli in Broadway's Jersey Boys after a record 1500 performances. Other credits: Broadway: Les Miserables (Gavroche). National Tours: Les Miserables and Jersey Boys. Off-Broadway: Hamlet (Hamlet). Regional: Piece of my Heart (Bert Berns - NY Stage & Film). Tickets $52/$47.
