Lydia Pense & Cold Blood

Lydia Pense & Cold Blood performing "Face the Music" at the MN Music Café in 2009 When a band covers another musician, the artist usually isn’t in the audience. But that very thing happened to Lydia Pense & Cold Blood in the 1960s. During a club gig in San Francisco, they decided to play “Piece of My Heart,” not knowing that Janis Joplin was watching from the crowd. As Pense once told the San Francisco Chronicle, "she started screaming, 'You can't play that song,' but after we finished, she hugged me and told me she loved the band and gave me some of her Southern Comfort." It’s a testament to the audience-winning energy of the jazz-rock legends, which sadly became history when they called it quits after building a cult following. Thankfully, the group has reunited more than 40 years after their founding. The horn and rhythm sections coalesce around Pense, who dominates the stage with charismatic stage presence and a voice that fluctuates between smoky growls and a triumphant belt. In addition to old favorites from their early years, the band treats audiences to cuts from their most recent album, 2005's Transfusion, bringing the funk and lightly tossing sticks of deodorant at sweaty showgoers. ####The Newton Theatre Upon its opening in 1924, the Newton Theatre beamed with a handsome colonial exterior, delicate stonework, and a façade glittering with 180 electric lights. Despite all this, the owners felt it most important to emphasize its steel load-bearing columns, declaring the building "the safest type known to modern engineering science" and “kind of like a castle, but, you know, without all the dungeons.” That sensible, utilitarian attitude has served the venue well ever since. The Newton found success as a movie theater for decades, then briefly closed in 2010, only to reopen in 2011 as a music venue with a sold out performance by Todd Rundgren.
