Thursday – 9:00 to 12:00 ~ Dave Sag’s Blues Party

Dave says,

Well, another summer shot to hell. I’m needing all this week to recover from last weekend’s grueling gigload. Nearly made $150 for three nights’ work. Things are looking up! We’re going to razzmatazz you this thursday with the likes of Mr. Andrew Clark, the tootin’ Torquemada of the tenor. Thrill to the dentist drill-like sorties from one of the most pre-eminent sax tootlers in the New England area. A.C.’s the man! Whether he’s crooning yer favorite toon or just outgassing to the boogie beat, you’ll find something to pray for.
Pushing the beat behind him will be one of my personal faves, Mr. Forrest “Gump” Padgett. Or, “Frosty” as we refer to him. I don’t know why. Someone left him here one night and we can’t figure out how to get him home!
Of course,all you air glitar heads will be happy to know that, yes, Greg T. will be there, too, as well as myself.

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.
