Friday night at Jalapenos

This is so exciting….I met Kingsley Flood a couple of years ago or more at a Monday night open jam and fell in love with them. You can catch George Hall a psychedelic to the moon guitar at the jam most Monday nights. He is a treat to hear as always.

Boston based rockers Kingsley Flood are “Having Words With Meg” on national Sirius XM Radio.

With an upcoming Gloucester gig June 2 gig at The Madfish on Rocky Neck and their recent 2nd release “Colder Still”,  these upstarts revvv things up with their own gumbo of Punk Americana..and everything from the Sax to the Fiddle to the Coffee Can are part of the sound.  Band member George Hall hails from Gloucester…And they’ll throw in a Tom Waits cover for good measure.

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

Dave says,

 The Vernon Dent Foundation is proud to present  that capacious yet lovable yeti of the blues: Mr. Mike O’Connell. It’s his very own show at the Rhumb Line this week. Chef, glitarist, and Vasorect® spokesmodel, he’s got a voice smooth as baby’s feet. He mows lawns, too. Mikey’s been brewing a lot of tea lately, as the chief mogul of  the Teahouse of the something or other in Snakepit, Ma. Food’s really good, especially the kapusta fondue. Bring a date and dine by the whites of her eyes!
We’ll be tapping our bunions along with that first-rate drumambulist Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, the Ace of Pace. Haven’t seen him in a while since he hurt himself in that horrible kick drum accident, But I guess he’s doing well. Of course, Mr. Greg T. with his catarrh will be there as well as myself in the bassment, trying to hold things up. A swell night for aural sex!

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.
