Goodbye and hello
Although he won’t be playing guitar, Lee Underwood is coming to Luna’s Cafe on Thursday, November 14. In the 1960s and 1970s, Underwood played guitar for Tim Buckley, the innovative singer-songwriter who died in 1975. Underwood also is well known as a writer and critic (during the 1980s, Underwood penned the “new age” column for the just-shuttered Tower Records’ Pulse! magazine). Many listeners discovered Tim Buckley through his son Jeff, the tragic singer who followed in his father’s footsteps, both occupationally and into the hereafter. Those listeners may be interested in Blue Melody: Tim Buckley Remembered, Underwood’s new book, from which he will be reading as the featured performer for the Poetry Unplugged open mike. Admission is free, the event starts at 8 p.m., and Luna’s is located at 1414 16th Street.
