Amy Rigby Pittsburgh show and ‘Diary of a Mod Housewife’ vinyl reissue

Pittsburgh native Amy Rigby’s Diary of a Mod Housewifeis a modern classic. It has never been available on vinyl. This will change Nov 18th when this wonderful album finally gets the vinyl release it deserves. Here’s what the press has said about it:

“..masterful. Funny and enticing, she is up there with the likes of Paul Simon and Randy Newman.”  – New York Times

 “Rigby’s solo debut remains a classic.”  – Chicago Tribune

 “An impressive debut. A-“ – Entertainment Weekly

 “Concept album of the year. A” – Robert Christgau

 “There are no maybes about Mod—this is a wonderful album” – People Magazine

 “As liberating as the first Pretenders album” –  Salon

 “…one of rock’s most distinctive and consistently excellent songwriters.” – Washington Post

 “…an instant classic” – UNCUT

 

image003Amy Rigby established herself as a solo artist in 1996 with debut album Diary Of A Mod Housewife, but had already been writing and performing her honest, intelligent and instantly-memorable songs for years as a member of early NYC alt-country band Last Roundup and girl group the Shams. Over the last two decades she has toured the US, UK and Europe and released four more acclaimed solo albums, as well as three duo records with her husband Wreckless Eric. Nov 18th, Diary Of A Mod Housewife will be released on vinyl for the first time and Amy is touring to revisit the classics and play new songs from her upcoming solo album due out next year.
