Dave Says,

Just in time for xmas, ladies and germs, May I present to you Ms. Cheryl Arena? One of our most requested singers and harpslingers, and a big time traveller, too, just having returned from Austin, TX., where she purrformed at the I. G. Farben Phocomelus Convention to a nearly standing ovation . Knocked ’em right over! Cheryl makes it up here to yankee-land 2 or 3x a year and we’re glad to have her. Great energy!   Pushing her along will be that organ octopus, Mr. John Cameron, who needed minor surgery after backing up Lisa Marie last week. And that friendly drummer, Mr. Jeff Casper will be on the diving board all nite long. Of, course Greg T. and myself will be there, too, hastily lumping the sandbags into place. A big dancing nite!

Friday – 9:30 to 12:30 ~ The Runaround

Saturday – 9:30 to 12:30 ~ The Satch Kerans Band

The Everlasting Literary Festival – 2nd & 4th Tuesdays every month, 7pm

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.
