Attention! Fans of the Units/Fear of Strangers…

Lonesome Val

Mark your calendars now.

After a rather lengthy hiatus from this thing we call the music scene, “Lonesome Val” Haynes is returning to the spotlight. She’ll be performing at The Linda in Albany as the opening act for Crash Test Dummies at 8pm on Saturday, December 4.

Not only that, but Lonesome Val will be accompanied by guitarist and former bandmate Todd Nelson, who just released a fine instrumental trio album of his own, “Here.” (Read our review here.)

After Fear of Strangers split up, lead vocalist Val Haynes became Lonesome Val, and recorded two mighty fine solo albums for the Hoboken, NJ-based indie label Bar/None Records – the self-titled “Lonesome Val” (1990) and “NYC” (1994).

    Even us Syracusans love Lonesome Val! Those solo records were monsters! I’ve seen some recent cameos with the Jug Stompers shes still got it.

    “Lengthy hiatus” indeed, it has been like 25-30 years, no?
