The Rhumb Line~

I am wicked excited about the Monday night jam. 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.

Dave says,

Hit the dirt! We’re dive-bombing you this Thursday with the whole Air Force. After a long hiatus, please welcome back Mr. Paul Ahlstrand on tenor sax. Pilot, raconteur, curmudgeon, and just plain funny. except when he’s playing sax. Then, he’s hilarious! We also have Mr. John Cameron, navigator, on keys, never off key. Bombadier is Mr. Roger Brocklebanque, on drummps. Tail-gunner Mr. Greg Tower will be aiming at you. I’ll be the co-pilot along with God. Say your prayers!
  And this Sunday, there will be a Breast Cancer Benefit at Chianti’s in Beverly from 2 till 5. A worthy cause. I’m hooking up with the likes of Dave Brown,Jeff Casper, Mark Earley, John Cameron, Greg Tower and a myriad of other illustrious under- employed musicians. Who knows who. The fur will fly! You can even stick around for the earley evening show, as Mark Earley presents Ms. Nancy Hildegarde for an evening of jazz right after our show is over. That’s 6 to 9. Last time it was  kickass!  Expect the same.

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.
