Since November 2010, the Luce Foundation Center for American Art, located in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, has been one of the city’s more intimate outlets for local musicians. Its monthly acoustic concert series, Luce Unplugged, features an hour-long performance, accompanied by a discussion on an artwork chosen by the musician.
Yesterday the series featured Title Tracks frontman John Davis, who played an hour-long set of his own songs as well as covers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Buck Owens, and John Denver. Toward the end of the set, Davis brought up Washington Post pop critic—-and Davis’ ex-Q and Not U bandmate—-Chris Richards for a handful of songs. Between stories and songs that showcased the duo’s pitch-perfect vocal harmonies, Davis and Richards announced they’ve been working on a bunch of new songs together (the count is currently at 16!), and hope to release something by mid-2012.
