What Where When-sday: Black Opry Presents Three-Year Celebration Honoring Alice Randall

This week for What Where When-sday, we discuss Black Opry Presents Three-Year Celebration Honoring Alice Randall at City Winery. The Black Opry has been a platform for Black artists and fans of country, roots, folk and Americana in an industry that doesn’t often offer them the space. They are celebrating their third year by honoring Randall, whose songwriting contributions have been overlooked in that space. Those songs are now being reimagined and performed by Black women for the first time on her album, My Black Country, and at the City Winery show. Senior music writer Jewly Hight spoke with Randall about the show.

Additional event opportunities begin tonight with Ty Segall performing songs from his new album, Three Bells, at Brooklyn Bowl. Check out an interview with Segall talking about the new record here. On Thursday, the NFL Draft begins; for all you Tennessee Titans fans out there, you can watch round one at Nissan Stadium. There’s live music for you and the kids with Rock N Roll Playhouse: the music of Dolly Parton at the Basement East on Sunday. Hear more about the playhouse experience in a past What Where When-sday interview here. Then, the Postal Service and Death Cab For Cutie are at Bridgestone Arena on Monday. Check out an interview with Death Cab For Cutie founding bass guitarist Nick Harmer here.
