Jesse Malin

Add Date: April 13

Artist: Jesse Malin & the St. Marks Social

Album: Love It to Life

Label: SideOneDummy

Genre: Rock

Comments: From the promoter: "Filled with the characters Malin does best--messengers and misanthropes, hipsters and hypocrites--and as always, his constant themes of redemption, nightlife, heartbreak, and survival, Love It to Life--a sentiment taken from a ticket stub Joe Strummer autographed for Jesse--was built with desperate optimism that shouts in gang vocals that no matter how bad it gets, you're never alone."

For fans of Bruce Springsteen and Malin's longtime friend and collaborator Ryan Adams. Two of the best tracks on the record, "The Archer" and "Lonely at Heart," were originally written for a film about J.D. Salinger. Also check out lead track "Burning the Bowery."
