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.



Please be sure to check out the links to all these fine musicians and venues on the side bar of this blog. >

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.

Thank you to Dan King for hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Friday – 9:30-12:30 ~ The Runaround

Saturday – 9:30 to 12:30 ~ Dread Rocks

Saturday – 9:00 to 12:00 ~ Booty Vortex

Sunday – 3:00 ~ 3:00 pm  ~ The Nancy Hildegarde Extravaganza

The Dog Bar~

Mondays – 6:00 to 8:00 ~ Chantey Night, an open Monday 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 Cape Ann Brewing Company to the Dog Bar . The singing begins at 6:00 every Monday 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 the Dog Bar.
