Carrie Rodriguez and Ben Kyle play the Dakota tonight
"Unlike May's Varsity show, this is a much more intimate thing," explains Dan Eikmeier, who works in artist relations at the Dakota. "Ben Kyle will open the show solo, Carrie will do a solo set, and Ben will join her for some duo tunes (with some minimal backup from Luke Jacobs on pedal steel). This is kind of a preparation gig for their upcoming European tour together with Romantica."
For a sneak peak, here's a video of Kyle, Rodriguez, and pedal steel player Luke Jacobs performing at a secret house show hosted by Cake in 15 last week:
