MUCK AND THE MIRES, Boston’s International ambassadors of garage rock ‘n’ roll, have been described as a blend of the 1964 Beatles and the 1977 Ramones. Their songs are reminiscent of the 1960’s British Invasion, all two minutes long and ALL POTENTIAL HITS, while their live show is a high energy blast of fast-paced, post-punk gritty garage rock and roll. They have built a worldwide following through relentless touring, radio and satellite airplay and a string of recordings, produced by Kim Fowley & Jim Diamond, considered by many to be cult classics.

WORLD PREMIERE MUSICAL Dogtown Common: Never Try, Never Win

never try never win

 

RUNNING THREE WEEKENDS THRU APRIL 17
10% of PROCEEDS BENEFIT GLOUCESTER’S ANGEL PROGRAM
PLEASE TALK IT UP!

The Folklore Theatre Company

169 Main St
Gloucester, Massachusetts 01930

Synopsis:
Former fisherman Abraham Wharf, now homeless, struggles with heroin addiction. It is midwinter, and he has set up his cardboard bed beneath the Babson “Never Try, Never Win” boulder in Gloucester’s long-abandoned settlement known as “Dogtown.” As he enters a drug-induced euphoric state, he edges ever closer to overdose and hypothermia. Two ghostly children appear through the trees, reaching out to Abraham. Unsure, Wharf decides to take their hands, allowing them to guide him deeper into the woods, and eventually into 1800 Dogtown Common and the home of Easter Carter. Here in her home, the only two-story house in the Commons, colorful residents of the Commons have gathered for warmth, for food, for community. Each character represents something within Wharf that leads him on an introspective journey of spirit survival. Three witches serve as a sort of Greek chorus, reminiscent of the three crones of mythology and Shakespeare’s Macbeth… here, they are the hissing voices of addiction: Dysphoria, Despair, and Redemption.
This groundbreaking inter-generational piece (actors ages 7-80) will raise the question: “What killed a 200 year-old community?” in a way that challenges us to avoid ever letting it happen again in Gloucester & Cape Ann.
Issues that are still universal hot topics today: ignorance, addiction, mental health, sexism, ageism, gossip, gender, homelessness, hunger, poverty and classism are all touched upon in this show.
Programs like The Open Door, Action Inc., The Grace Center, Wellspring, and Gloucester’s new Angel Program are all examples of how a community, through education understanding, and innovation can find healing and sustainability in ways that simply did not exist two hundred years ago. Indeed, if we knew then what we know now, and if these great organizations had existed in that time, Dogtown Commons might still be a thriving community today.
Each of the three production weeks, 10% of box office proceeds will benefit Gloucester’s newest community support organization, The Angel Program. Suggested donation $10-$30, as always, no one is turned away. Consider this show rated PG-13 due to mature theme.

Season tickets now available, just $15/mo!

Thursday ~Dave Sag’s Blues Party with Dave Birkin of Dave B and The Hot Shots

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014 (1)

We’re late celebrating Keaster this week as I offer you hipster replacement therapy in the guise of Mr. Dave Birkin. A newbie for you and me. I met this guy at a party where the wallpaper curled and houseplants died after a rousing set of heat-seeking blues and j**z got the audience wheezing and drooping in hysteresis. Just back from a perspirational visit to The Mount Of Olive Oyl, where he scored a pair of Roman sandals and a scutum real cheap, Dave will visibly shake you up with modern renditions of classic blues and jazz. He has a really great Sax sound. And he sings, too. I really mean this.

dave birkin

Blacking him up will be that nun-eating master of the gootar, Mr. Mike DiBari; our antidisestablishvegetarianism recipient of the year, and Mr. Chris Anzelone, a new piston-popping drummmbler, who’ll knock your block off. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and can’t wait to hear me cry “Uncle!” Do come!

First and foremost, we want to say thank you to each and every person who has stepped foot in Alchemy over the past 12 years. It’s been an awesome, crazy run and you helped make it all possible.

We’re closing on Saturday. For real this time

The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn’t a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that’s not our goal.

We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we’re going to make that. We don’t know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we’re going to figure it out; and when we do, we’ll let you know.

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014 (1)

 It’s a special week for me as I capture some of my favorite high-value targets and toss ’em on the stage for a big whoop-di-do. Seeing as how one of my favorite songwriters and performers passed on a few months ago, I thought It’d be a good idea to honor him with a tribute. I’m talkin’ about Mr. Allen Toussaint.

Allen-Toussaint-RIP

http://allentoussaint.com/

You may not have heard the name, but this guy was one of the most important tunesmiths of the 60’s and 70’s. He wrote over 1000 songs, some of which are classics.. We’re gonna do like 30 of them, if we can, with no rehearsal, no backsies and no money down. To help me out I’ve engaged my most favorite lovers of his music. Phew!
Let’s start with Edd Scheer, everybody’s favorite frontman, drummer and vocalist. Add Mr. Jon Ross, on guitar and vocals, and Mr. John Cameron , on keys, and me, suffering with a swollen enigma, coughing my brains out, and writing out words to 30 songs and what do you get? Hopefully a stellar night of Allen’s top notch music!
Somebody help me!

Judith Sargent Murray‎Love Notes: The Love Letters of Judith Sargent Murray and John Murray, A Timeless American Love Story Set to Music

henry love letters

John Murray is known as the Father of Organized Universalism in America, and was a charismatic, handsome firebrand who preached love, kindness and virtue, sometimes at his peril.

And Judith Sargent Murray is considered the most important female essayist of 18th-century America and a founding Universalist. She challenged the new American nation to be virtuous, fair, and philanthropic; to improve female education, respect women’s abilities, and allow them to participate as full citizens.

The couple was often separated and exchanged hundreds of letters. Their love story is timeless and compelling.

The event has been scheduled at 5:30 p.m. to give you plenty of time to enjoy a lovely Valentine’s Day meal before or after!

Featuring Bonnie Hurd Smith & Henry∞Cameron Allen

Suggested donation: $10 at the door.

CHELSEA BERRY

chelsea-berry-410

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor

CHELSEA BERRY

chelsea-berry-410

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore. A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Chelsea’s commanding stage presence and energetic rock/folk/pop sound has begun bringing her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston Taylor as well as headliner of her own shows from California to Washington, Minneapolis, New York, and everywhere in between. Along with her solo shows, Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Jonathan Edwards, Jon Butcher, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, Marshall Crenshaw, Patty Larkin, and many others. Over her career, Berry has released four full length records (and one EP), including her most recent–2014’s acclaimed Remedy.

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” –Livingston Taylor

M.E.Productions Presents

DAVID BROMBERG QUINTET at the Shalin Liu Performance Center Rockport MA

dave bromberg quintetcourtesy photo

Friday 8 PM

Shalin Liu-Center
37 Main St, Rockport, Massachusetts 01966

Tickets Available
tickets.rockportmusic.org

If “Americana” has come to mean music that resides in the interstices between country, folk, blues, and other genres without belonging to any of them, then Bromberg was Americana eons before the term came into vogue, and no more so than when he was playing with his quintet.

Bromberg is one of the most engaging, indeed mesmerizing, of performers. It’ll be a treat to hear him and his quintet perform their mix of bluegrass, country, R&B, and blues that’s united by Bromberg’s soulful picking and gravelly vocals.

Permanently Closed

First and foremost, we want to say thank you to each and every person who has stepped foot in Alchemy over the past 12 years. It’s been an awesome, crazy run and you helped make it all possible.

We’re closing on Saturday. For real this time wink emoticon

The way people dine is evolving, and while we have lots of wonderful, loyal guests, Alchemy just isn’t a place most people can eat at multiple times a week, and that’s not our goal.

We want a space where families can dine out regularly with great food, drinks and a fun, casual vibe. So, we’re going to make that. We don’t know exactly how it will look or what the food will be, but we’re going to figure it out; and when we do, we’ll let you know.

What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Saturday, Jan 30, Doors at 7 PM, Concert at 7:30PM

Tickets: $15 non-members/ $10 RNAC members, purchase below!

Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from the woods of Medieval France to a 1930s New Orleans jukejoint. Led by the gender-defying voice of 3rian King, the ensemble delivers their own brand smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French cafe.

The soul of the band is rooted in its songs – poetic, inventive, emotionally naked meditations on love, religion, sexuality, and identity in the tradition of songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, and Laura Nyro. The band also loves to reimagine classics from Johnny Cash, Prince, and Joni Mitchell to Irish folk tunes and Appalachian murder ballads.

With Nathan Cohen’s cinematic violin & haunting trumpet, Joe Cardoza’s upright bass, Dennis Monagle’s artful drums, Renee Dupuis warm keys and stellar voice, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? sells out legendary clubs from Club Passim & Oberon in Cambridge, MA to The Duplex in NYC, recently earning the Critic’s Pick in Time Out New York.

Their original song “Cold Rain” was recently covered by New Orleans Soul Queen, Irma Thomas, on her Grammy-nominated CD “Simply Grand,” with the track earning high praise in Rolling Stone, USA Today & The VIllage Voice.

The latest album by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, “Little Bit Of Blue” was recently launched with two sold-out CD-release parties in Boston & NYC, with the songs accompanied by circus performers, dancers, and animation by award-winning filmmaker, Ruth Lingford.

Rest In Peace ~David Bowie

David Bowie, 1973

Ziggy Stardust

Oh
Oh, yeah

Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And the Spiders from Mars
He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man
Then we were Ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang
Screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan
He could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
They came on so loaded, man
Well-hung and snow-white tan

So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?
Oh

Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar

Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind, ah
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band

Oh, yeah
Ooh

Ziggy played guitar

Jake Pardee of Rockport will be on bass holding down exquisite grooves, solid, deep, and in the pocket.

On percussion is Beverly resident, Shira Moss, bringing the rich and varied resonant tones of the congas to the mix.

A HOLIDAY GUITAR CONCERT

bonfield

courtesy photo

Fingerstyle guitarist Ken Bonfield has performed throughout the United States for more than 20 years. Based in Gloucester, Bonfield is a regular at guitar festivals, concert series, and acoustic venues across North America, and has released seven albums.

“Ken Bonfield’s instrumental guitar work patently avoids the incessant noodling… instead melody is king and Bonfield’s gifted fingers flesh out a beautiful cavalcade of notes that are at times reminiscent of a human voice singing and often soaring.” –Frank Rabey, Mountain Xpress

 In his open-hearted, welcoming concerts, workshops and master classes, he shares new guitar dimensions and sonic explorations with his listeners. His compositions are performed with his unique “chamber ensemble” of handcrafted instruments ranging from baritone guitar to an 11-string harp guitar to a high-string guitar which Bonfield likens to a 6-string, Steel-String ukulele.

Join us for this all-ages holiday get-together, where Ken will be joined by fellow renowned guitarist Raymond Gonzalez performing holiday favorites and s00n-to-be-favorites in our comfortable and inviting living-room-style venue.

 Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his projectile format and penchant for snake charming, this is the guy to take you into the Twilight Zone. Make you forget about that credit card bill due in January. He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one! After This Thursday, We’ll be off until January 7, when the good Old Salty Jazz Band returns for some musical mayhem.
