Lavin has recorded 25 solo albums, and two more with four seasoned musician-comediennes under the name Four Bitchin’ Babes. She also. has produced 10 compilations showcasing the work of dozens of singer/songwriters she admires. Many of Lavin’s songs are now performed by Broadway performers — Neil deGrasse Tyson appears on her album “Spaghettification.” Lavin also make videos for her songs, many of which can be found online at
Lavin has built a reputation as one of the observers and chroniclers of modern urban life, with recordings like “Prisoners of Their Hairdos,” “Sensitive New Age Guys,” “Good Thing He Can’t Read My Mind,” and “Mysterious Woman,” a brilliant parody of folk-pop singer Suzanne Vega.
Her latest solo album, her 25th, “On My Way To Hooterville,” includes 10 new songs and one re-worked song, “Ramblin’ Waltz,” a re-telling of her time in 1975 when she was an entourage driver for the first week of Bob Dylan’s iconic “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour.
Tickets cost $30 in advance or $35 at the door, and are $10 for students/children.
