Tomorrow night (Thursday, September 19) British singer-songwriter Glenn Tilbrook makes a rare Memphis-area appearance at the 1884 Lounge at Minglewood Hall.
Tilbrook is undoubtedly best known for his work fronting the alternative/power-pop outfit Squeeze, who scored several big hits in the 80s, including "Take Me I'm Yours," "Up The Junction," and "Tempted." But throughout his long career, Tilbrook has made several fine recordings outside of the Squeeze moniker, both as a solo artist and part of the duo Difford & Tilbrook.
Here's Tilbrook with his new band performing another of Squeeze's more well-known songs, "Goodbye Girl," just two weeks ago in Philadelphia:
Also on the bill is Joe Michelini of the band River City Extension. Here's a clip from last year of Michelini and Tilbrook performing a River City Extension song together:
