Singer-songwriter M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger has had a big 2014 with the release of his Merge Records debut Lateness of Dancers and increased popularity and critical acclaim. In January Taylor will contribute his talents to support and celebrate NARAL NC (NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina).
Taylor and friends will play the organization's 42nd anniversary celebration at the Pinhook in Durham on Sunday, January 18. Tickets are on sale now via Ticketfly for $15.
Hiss Golden Messenger will release a new 12-inch EP on February 5 titled Southern Grammar that will open with a live version of the title track as performed by a nine-piece band just as when the group recently appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman. Check out that performance below.
