A collection of fan-favorites performed live at Los Angeles’ acclaimed venue The Hotel Cafe, including the previously-unreleased show-closer “You Gotta F**kin’ Tip”, and a brand new track titled “Perfect Fit”.
Culled from a live performance at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, the Paula Boggs Band wants to connect in a different way on its new EP, Songs of Protest and Hope . The five-song collection features three originals and a pair of covers that reflect the tenor of the times.
Songs of Protest and Hope grew out of a public challenge issued a few years ago by Questlove, the Roots drummer and late-night bandleader, who wondered about a lack of protest songs in the wake of the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. It\'s also an expression of a concept that Boggs and her band have been thinking a lot about in recent years: what it means to be a citizen-artist, making music that entertains, but also enlightens and inspires.
