Event description

Description

Jill Sobule is an American singer-songwriter who has released more than a dozen albums and EPs over the past two decades. Though she is arguably best known for the 1995 single “I Kissed a Girl“—the first song about same-sex romance to crack the Billboard Top 20—Sobule has worked in a variety of genres and formats over the years, including recent forays into writing for the theater. An early pioneer in crowdfunding (In 2009 she released one of the first albums funded entirely by fan donations), Sobule used Kickstarter to fund her most recent album, Nostalgia Kills, which was released in September of 2018. It is her first album of all-new material in nearly a decade.

Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant… grown-up music for an adolescent age. -- NY TIMES




About The Series

Since 1902, the Washington Square Hotel (formerly “The Earle”) has been a haven for writers, artists, and musicians. Take a minute and let these names sink in: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bo Diddley, Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Ernest Hemingway and Dylan Thomas. Yes, all of these greats—and more—have been guests at this iconic Greenwich Village landmark.

Washington Square Hotel hopes to build upon its rich history by launching a monthly salon series. 'Village Nights' will be curated and hosted by Greenwich Village musician, producer, author, legendary frontman for The Bongos, and longtime Villager, Richard Barone.

“Greenwich Village’s longstanding legacy as a center of cultural revolution and a haven for self-expression has always been best expressed through its nightlife. This freewheeling musical salon series celebrates the Village’s folk, jazz, and spoken-word heritage in a uniquely historic setting and offers a great night out!” says Barone.

  • Show times are at 6:30 p.m. in the hotel’s North Square Lounge. Doors open at 6pm.

  • Full dinner and drink menu available
  • $25 per person cover charge

  • Seating may be at the bar

Washington Square Hotel is located at 103 Waverly Place, NYC 10011 | Phone: (212) 212-254-1200
