If you’re at all a part of the burgeoning Patchogue music scene, you probably know of Larrin Gerard. The singer/songwriter has been an avid supporter of local music since her teenage years, a regular face at open mics and coffeehouses. She moved to the city for a few years to complete her degree at Hunter, and came back to the Island with a soulful country wail and a catalog of beautifully simple “tell it like it is” original songs.
This past summer and fall, Larrin made a splash in the Patchogue music scene with a few awesome solo/acoustic performances at the Patchogue Theatre’s “Live in the Lobby” series. In 2011, she’s got something new up her sleeve–the addition of a bass player, Derek Spencer Cocks, and a drummer, Chris Best, to form Larrin and the Locomotives ( http://www.reverbnation.com/larrinandthelocomotives )
The band’s debut performance is this Saturday, January 15th at Four Doors Down in Mattituk. The show is a fundraiser for the Southold Baymen’s Association and features other musical acts like Taost ( http://www.reverbnation.com/taost ) and Joe Allegue. Tickets are $25 and include your first drink on the house. Advance tickets are available at Four Doors Down, Hart’s Hardware in Southold, or LOMA Productions in Southold (631-566-2926).
