Dave says.

We have a white knuckle situation this Thursday as we drag in that maniacal mentor of the blues: Mr. Evan Goodreau. He’ll be tickling your earbone all night long with his belt-sanding glitar and smooth creamy vocals. clothing optional. Backing him up will be that Irish instigator of the drums: Mr. “Molto: Benny Benson. Of course, Greg T. and myself complete the roundup. We’re alpha and omega free. Bring your defibrillator!
  And I’m gettin’ sick and tired of sayin’ it, but Sunday sees the triumphant return of the GEEZERZ up at Glenn’s in Nbpt. Boo-hoo…nobody from Globster ever shows up. So, screw it!
  Also , Mon. afternoon at the Rose Baker Senior Center, the Old Saltys are at it again from 1 to 3. You should see these people dance. Put you to shame! It’s free, too. Smelling salts recommended.

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.
