Happy New Year!

Check out The Mushroom Lady

“Wire necklaces with charm! Memory wire necklaces that are funky with music to art. Alphonse Mucha designs to Peter Max mod cool. Fillmore posters to kaleidoscopes! Rock and Roll greats to vintage Jazz. Great for those with arthritic fingers, nail biters, those that want a necklace on the go, or like simplistic. No clasps! For all ages!”

Dave Says,

What a great time we had last thursday with the JK® experience! So, to keep it going ,we’re bringing back that tootin’ Torquemada of the tenor sax: Mr. Andrew Clark. AC  always gets the blood movin’ and the feet groovin’ to that funky, ironic beat that can’t be beat. Like habeneros for your soul!   He’ll be joined at the hip by Mr. Andrew Jones, fabulous meter man and pineal reconstruction specialist, on the skins, and, of course, Mr. Greg T. and myself will complete the circuit. So, don’t be a cube, rube; go ape!

Andrew Clark

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.

The Everly Sisters

An acoustic female duet, one a fingerstyle guitarist the other a Patsy Cline enthusiast, both harmonizing to the songs of the lengendary vocalists of the 60′s era, especially a well studied repertoire of Phil & Don Everly hits.  Their acoustic style is intriguing and relaxing, bringing a refreshing new sound to many classic hits from the 60′s to the 80′s.  Both blues singers at heart, they expand their repetoire to also include folk, soft rock, oldies the Beatles and especially the Everly Borthers
