Video: Eric Wolfson - "Sleeping Is A Sucker's Game"

Eric Wolfson’s terrific debut album, State Street Rambler, reads like a love letter to his adopted hometown of NYC. It’s full of great songs (including one that easily made my favorites of 2007) that update the volatile folk-rock sound of mid-60s Dylan, also including this one - “Sleeping Is A Sucker’s Game”.

The video features many familiar locales of the Lower East Side Anti-folk movement, and a large part was filmed at the Sidewalk Café, home of NY’s best open-mic on Mondays and free live music just about every other night.

Wolfson is also very active in helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina. He and Annie Crane recorded a benefit single recently for the people of New Orleans still feeling the after-effects. You can hear the song, “Nowhere To Go”, streaming at Wolfson’s myspace. If you like the song and want to contribute to the continued relief efforts go to his brand new website for more information.
