In addition to catching babies, flipping pancakes, and bossing awesome, Nilie has somehow managed to team up with Britt Govea of (((folkYEAH!))) to produce a record called Be Yourself, a tribute to her papa's first solo LP Songs for Beginners, from 1971. A group of admiring young artists, including Bonnie Prince Billy, Robin Pecknold (of Fleet Foxes), Brendan Benson (of The Raconteurs), Vetiver, Alela Diane, Sleepy Sun, Mariee Sioux & Greg Weeks (from Espers), Port O Brien with The Papercuts, The Moore Brothers, and Nile herself, cover the record start to finish.
Please join us for an advance listening party at the shop on Saturday, May 22nd. With any luck, you might just have the opportunity to meet Joel Bernstein face to face.
