Professor Bad Ass, aka Kevin Stewart, played his third and final performance for Acoustic Affaire this past Tuesday night held at the new East Village bistro on Avenue B.
Sekou Carradine and Richard Burroughs hosted the singer/songwriter, fashion maven and American shirtmaker the past 3 Tuesdays, bringing awareness to Multiple Sclerosis and providing a face to the disease.
Tuning up, below, outside the bistro prior to his second set of the evening.
Kevin played my top two favs from his personal repertoire, The Circus is Coming to Town and Bartender ….
….and from the first performance, regaling the packed room with life stories, deep growly velvet vocals and a heart-rending lyricism.
