The Rhumb Line~

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

Dave says,

It’s Ragnarok ‘n Roll time this week as we welcome back that dynamic duo of the Blues: Mario Perrett and Edd Scheer. Mario, cutie-pie saxist and former Downbeat® centerfold,  will have you wailing on the floor in record time with his pachinko-parlor style and gravy-like vocals.  And Mr.Edd, our diaphaneous drumlin, with his horse voiceover, will be pointing the bone at you. Look out!
Of course, aiding this foray into the world of honky jive will be our own stellar glitarist, Mr. Greg Tower, as well as myself, on base. It’s free!  Minus shipping and handling. It’s gonna be hot!

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.
