Occasionally an album emerges from the pack and flirts with the possibility of being one of the classics. "What Have We Done" is an acoustic folk-inspired album from Goodbye Ronnie, a.k.a. Ronnie Lickers, a veteran drummer for local prog-metal group BML. Lickers takes us on his journey of self-reflection with a collection of songs that were born out of a period of sadness, and ultimately contributed toward a process of healing. Thus the name, Goodbye Ronnie, a metaphor for the artist getting away from his old self in order to find himself again. "What Have We Done" is a vehicle driven by instruments including acoustic guitar and cello, along with female vocal harmonies that showcase Lickers' major-league talent as a songwriter, arranger, and lead vocalist. Join Goodbye Ronnie and friends for an intimate evening of beautiful music that is straight from the heart. With Maria Betts and Michele Sestito.
The concert takes place Friday, March 22, 6 p.m. at Tala Vera, 155 State St. $5-$7. tala-vera.com.
