Lastly, no one can accuse local musician Henning Ohlenbusch of not working well with others. In recent years, the Valley staple has performed with no less than The Aloha Steamtrain , Humbert , The Gay Potatoes , The Fawns , Spouse and The Winterpills , in addition to his own School For The Dead . For his latest studio effort, Looks Like I'm Tall , however, not only does Ohlenbusch go solo, but he plays every instrument on the 11-tune offering--not to mention assuming all engineering duties and releasing the disc on his personal label, Rub Wrongways.
All the more reasons, he explains, for the musical lone wolf to celebrate the accomplishment with an exclusive CD release party at Night Owl Records in Easthampton this Friday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m.
"In keeping with everything else, I wanted to do something different this time," Ohlenbusch says. "A completely independent disc at a completely independent music store just seemed so fitting. Plus, since it is not a bar, I can make admission free and invite all ages." In turn, Night Owl Records, opened in 2003 by owners Mark Schwaber and Jen Campbell , will take the occasion to unveil its store makeover, replete with a new performance space.
