Motenko at Long Play Lounge East

By: Laurie Gallardo

The track featured on today’s AMM, “Waiting All Day” from Motenko‘s self-titled EP, encapsulates the ongoing love letter that songwriter/vocalist/musician Micah Motenko pens to the sounds of Motown, which made a huge impression upon Motenko during his formative years, and remains his number one influence to this day. The roots of this infatuation run deep and wide, covering everything from 70’s-era R&B to soul, funk, and the celebratory spirit of New Orleans Second Line.

Catch Motenko at their show tomorrow night, Wednesday April 27, at Long Play Lounge East, 1910 E. Cesar Chavez. The music kicks off at 9 p.m.
