Well, once again, it’s hot, everybody’s celebrating The Fourth, even though it’s the first, so it’s a holiday, not much going on, not even sure if the paper comes out this week! But, my loyal internet readers must be served, so the show must go on!
Last week, as promised, I went to see The Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars at The Bearsville Theater. It was a good show, first class reggae and world music. I took photographer Erik Lamont with me, so we have some pictures for you. Thanks to Jodie at the theater for hooking us up.
The Cheating Hearts had a great night at Keegan Ales last Friday. The band is really starting to jell as a unit. Jimmy Eppard pulled some guitar licks in from outer space, and the rest of the band just cooked along. A splendid time was had by all.
Guitarslinger, Beki Brindle, is the Hudson Valley’s secret weapon! The girl cooks! Last Saturday at BSP in Kingston, Beki and her band, The Hotheads, rocked the house for two hours straight! She is really good! Besides her usual blues repertoire, they were pulling out Country classics like “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Dead Flowers”, and rocking the Country right out of ‘em! She’s one of the best female guitar players around, and one of the best around, period! Catch her if you can!
Stones still getting ready for their 50th anniversary tour by unveiling a new redesign of their famous tongue logo. It’s all over the internet, so Google it if you wanna see it!
And now for this week’s live music picks.
Dog days of Summer are upon us. Meow!
