Both the Mayan’s and Nostradamus predicted that LOCAL 28 will host a booty shakin’ psychedelic hoedown and rock n roll revue for the ages on 1/20/12. Oh, man, 20/12 in 2012? Far out!

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.

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.

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

 Hahahah- Dave Says,

 Got a big load in my pants this week, so let’s get goin’!
Firstly, Thursday nite the Rumblind is proud to feature Ms. Michelle Willson, queen of the honky blues.

Just back from a successful show at the Kapusta Festival in Lodz, the divine Miss W. is sure to beat your brain to a pulp whilst mandibulating such gooey blues as your subhuman desires demand. Man, can she sing!
Backing her up will be that jazz snob and longtime heartthrob, Mr. John F. Hyde, on keys. You should see him in his new sharkskin suit, girls; he’s quite a fashion plate. We’ve booked time at Mt. Palomar to locate a drummer, but, so far, all we have is background radiation, so, stay tuned. Of course, Mr. Greg T. and his hat will be there as well as myself, doing my best Piltdown Man impersonation since I’ve just learned to stand up again! Don’t be L-seven: get your butt out there!
And Saturday nite: what can I say? The Storm Troopers of The Good Old Salty Jazz\Swing Band march back into The Annie; i.e. the performance space at the Blackburn Building for another teeth-grinding foray into the world of the Great american Schlongbook. Led by Mr. Henry Allen, we’re all looking forward to another great nite of crooning and dancing. Hours 8 to 11. It’s a benefit for the Annie, and worth every penny of the $20 cover. Bring your own corn remover!
And for those of you who still have the strength, Monday afternoon The GOSJB (see above) will be draggin’ their blunt instruments into the Rose Baker Senior Center for yet another groovy dance party. From 1 to 3 p.m., we’ll be pulling out all the stops. It’s free!

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.
