Page's (not so) Strange Design

Last night Page McConnell performed at NYC's Gramercy Theatre, kicking off his spring tour in support of his self-titled album due out in stores April 17. Fans were treated to the entirety of Page's new album in addition to an encore that included a solo version of Phish's Strange Design


"Last night Page McConnell played his first proper solo club gig at New York’s Gramercy Theatre. In addition to the keyboardist, McConnell’s band includes Spam Allstars guitarist Adam Zimmon, keyboardist/guitarist Jared Slomoff, bassist Rob O'Dea, and drummer Gabe Jarrett. The quintet opened its show with “Back In the Basement” and ran through a number of tracks off Page McConnell, including “Runaway Bride,” “Maid Marion,” “Heavy Rotation,” “The Complex Wind,” “Rules I Don't Know,” “Close to Home,” and “Beauty of a Broken Heart.” For his encore McConnell offered a solo version of Phish’s “Strange Design” and a full band take on “Everyone But Me.” By the end of the evening McConnell had performed his new album in its entirety."
