This event has already passed
East Village Coffee Lounge and Kiki Wow present an afternoon of live music featuring the award-winning singer-songwriter Parthenon Huxley on Saturday, September 14, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Admission is $10 at the door.
Parthenon Huxley's dozen albums are packed with hooky, meaningful songs featuring his "gold dust voice" [Mojo Magazine] and a curio cabinet's worth of cool guitar sounds. Hux's first single, "Buddha, Buddha," caused Rolling Stone to gush, "You could land a marlin with these hooks!" His albums Sunny Nights, P. Hux "Deluxe", and Homemade Spaceship all received Album of the Year awards. "I Loved Everything" from the album Purgatory Falls climbed to #1 on Rolling Stone's Exclusive Download Chart.
Hux was recruited in 1998 to become part of ELO Part II, where he joined ELO members Bev Bevan, Kelly Groucutt, Mik Kaminski and Lou Clark (as well as American singer/keyboardist Eric Troyer) and began touring the world. Hux has collaborated with Mark Everett of eels, Foreigner hit maker Mick Jones, McCartney guitarist Rusty Anderson, Mick Jagger guitarist Stevie Salas, Canadian chanteuse Sass Jordan, Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter, Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock, Chicago Transit Authority's Robert Lamm, and many more.
