Neptune City’s own Nicole Atkins has been busy of late with radio appearances, sit down interviews with SIMGE, and performances alongside Bruce Springsteen at the Light Of Day Festival, but recently found time to sit in with musical compatriot and lauded axe wielder Binky Griptite (Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings) for a cover of Big Star’s “Kangaroo”, filmed live at The Gibson Brands Showroom in New York City.

Check out the sparse and sultry rendition the local songstress and Griptite brought to life below and be sure to check out NIcole Atkins when she plays a (not so) secret show at The Saint on Wednesday (February 12th).

What’s being billed as warm up show for Atkins’ forthcoming U.S. tour with Arc Isis (ex. The Low Anthem who recently dropped a new single) in support of the local favorite’s latest LP Slow Phaser (read the review) will feature Asbury Park’s own Glycerine Queens (who are having their debut release produced by Atkins), the Scottland-based Davey Home, and SIMGE favorite Amy Malkoff & The Moonshines.

Doors for this event open at 7:30 p.m. with a cover of $12 to be paid upon entrance (or pick them up in advance here)…don’t miss it.
