Quick Hits

Today’s offering is a bulletin from the local music scene;

  • Andre’ Ruest, former bass player from the band Grooveworks dropped me a line to say he wishes his other band mates nothing but the best and he hopes they had a great show at The Grog ( last night. Andre’ recently decided to leave Grooveworks ( to spend more time with his family.
  • I have to admit, this one even stumped me and I am a self professed baseball junkie. If the lower portion of a stair case is referred to as the ‘Bottom of the Staircase’ then why isn’t the portion of a baseball inning when the away team is up called ‘the Top of the Inning’
  • Blind Billy of Blind Billy & The Spectacles ( encourages everyone in the area to check out Blind Billy & The Spectacles playing the new Stone Soup in Ipswich, MA. A rare ‘home gig’ for Blind Billy at a new location;

    Saturday July 18
    Stone Soup ‘All New Ipswich Location’
    9 P.M. - 12 A.M.
    141 High Street (close to the High School)
    Ipswich, MA

“Anytime you can get T-Model Ford to dance to your set including to a cover his own song ‘Chickenhead Man’.. and Kent Burnside & Kenny Brown get up and move to your version of an RL Burnside's "See What My Buddy Done"'s a damn good time! -- Deep Blues Festival has been coming soon (hopefully)!”

Me thinks there is a chance there will be QUITE a few pictures which will not be available to share.

  • Is it me, or does Michael Jackson’s white female face stage resemble a certain Supreme Court Justice nominee?

  • Yours truly has a standing invitation from Kitt Cox at “The Farm” in Essex to check out their Thursday Night Blues & Brews open mic. Kitt has a unique setup in this new upscale watering hole. A weekly featured act comes in and ‘Sings for their supper’ performing an opening set, after that the mic is turned over to anyone looking to perform. I have heard real good things about the open mic, Kitt and The Farm. I am looking forward to checking this one out, potentially this Thursday
  • Johnny B of The Coup DeVille band checks in to remind Merrimac Valley Blues Musicians there is a weekly blues jam at The Roma in Bradford, MA. The guys from Coup DeVille split the hosting duties with The Stubbies. Check it out.
  • I would like to wish Matthew Stubbs the best mojo possible. It sounds like Matt will be making a major financial buy in the coming week/months. Good luck Stubbie!
"(Funky) Sex Farm" is hysterical. Someone should drop the 'Spinal Tap' movie into time capsule now.
  • Finally the self promotion machine;
    • Georgetown Fats & The Growlers - Half Loaded Trio
    • Live! July 25th, 2009 @ The Rockpond in Georgetown
