Music Around Town ~ May 30 – June 5, 2011

May 31, 2011 at 3:11 pm (Music)

Gloucester’s Kingsley Flood, Rhumbline, Saturday, June 4th. I can’t wait!

Kingsley Flood describe themselves as an Americana band that “draws as much from Woody Guthrie and the Band as it does Joe Strummer and the Replacements.” 

Kingsley Flood’s latest recording titled “I Don’t Wanna Go Home” was recently featured on NPR’s  “Song of the Day” , and the K-Flood does indeed rock.  They have a devoted allegiance of fans in Gloucester who pack the Rhumb Line everytime. The band’s lead guitarist, George Hall, has lived in Gloucester for 10 years, after many years of rocking Boston in former bands Dogzilla and Seks Bomba.  Kingsley Flood will be playing at the Rhumb Line Saturday, June 4th, three sets. It’s a great experience to see them close up, the tiny room explodes with rocking wild abandon. Great new track…but also worth checking out the first album Dust Windows, for which Kingsley Flood won “Best New Artist of the Year” at the 2010 Boston Music Awards. They also have many videos posted on YouTube including a killer version of another new song, “Mannequin Man” as performed live at TT the Bear’s in Cambridge.

“To err is human to forgive is divine”

It is unfortunate at times to misinform and I hope that if one finds an error in this posting please bring it to my attention so it can be fixed immediately if not sooner.

Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Open Jam with Dan King and friends

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there to let loose with no planned agenda.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

A few words from Dave,

A busy one, so, let’s get goin’! This Thursday  at the Rhumbline  we’re proud to present that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark. He’s  got some new toonz for us to do. I’m willin’ and able. Backing him up will be that irrrepressible Irish Cream of a drummbler, Mr. Benny Benson. Greg T. and myself will fill out the wasteline.

    Now, on Friday nite, It’s the Season Premiere of The Geezerz, aka Dave Sag’s Atomic Cocktail at the Studio on Rocky Neck. Last year, we chased out all the termites with our rousing renditions of all our unpopular blooz tunes. That’s Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks, Greg Tower, and  myself. We hope to continue the tradition this year, so, c’mon down!  We start at 9 pm, go to midnite.

  Last and least, next Monday nite, I’ll be limping in to Captain Carlo’s for a fabulous evening of classic jazz ,dixieland, blues, and the Great American Schlongbook with my fave musical buddies, The Good Old Salty Jazz Band. There’s probably 7 or 9 of us, I’m not really sure, and Mark Earley and Myself are the youngest members, though it’s hard to tell sometimes. YOU SHOULD BE THERE: THIS IS IMPORTANT. You don’t know what you’re missing. Aaah, a warm evening, groovey jazz, and cocktails on the deck; what could be better… Start time is 6:30 and we go to 9:30, so all you old farts have no excuse for dozing off and missing all the fun!

Cape Ann Brewing ~

Chantey Night, an open Tuesday night sing featuring members of Three Sheets to the Wind, Knockabout, and other music groups from the North Shore and the Boston area, has moved from the now-closed Cameron’s to the Cape Ann Brewing Company.   The singing begins at 8:30 every Tuesday night. For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see.  If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing.  Best to plan it for a different night at Cape Ann Brewing.
