Best known as the drummer and singer/songwriter of The Yardbirds, Jim McCarty is at the Lula Lounge on Tuesday night to celebrate the release of his new album Walking In The Wild Land and his autobiography, Nobody Told Me! My Life with The Yardbirds, Renaissance and Other Stories written in conjunction with veteran rock biographer Dave Thompson.

Jim has long had a special relationship with Toronto. Beyond staying here while touring the States with The Yardbirds, Jim has also collaborated with local musicians on various solo recordings, including his latest album Walking In The Wild Land which was cut at Number 9 Studios with producer/bassist George Koller and mixed by the legendary Terry Brown.

George will join Jim on stage with Tom Reynolds (keyboards), Ben Riley (drums), and Drew Jurecka (violin, reeds along with guests Christian Antonacci and the Willows. Jim will be performing songs from his new album (and perhaps a Yardbirds tune or two) after reading a short excerpt from his engaging memoir which boasts an introduction penned by his old Yardbirds bandmate Jimmy Page.

Lula Lounge is located at 1585 Dundas West and doors open at 6:30 pm. Showtime is at 7:30 pm sharp and tickets are $20 at the door. Check out the title track from Jim's new album Walking In The Wild Land below.
