There is a full moon this week and a very busy and fun weekend to enjoy, if you are interested in music and sounds.
Thursday, when the moon is at its fullest, I'm sliding over to The Root Cellar in Greenfield, MA to see a list of performers who I trust will illuminate and glow for us and lighten our weary January minds: Wet Tuna, which is a Matt Valentine/Patrick Gubler duo, John Shaw, Galacto Fidelity: a trio of Byron Coley, Matt Krefting and Bill Nace, Crystalline Roses which is Tony Pasquarosa, Frozen Corn, which is Tony, Chris Carlton and Josh Burkett, and Pigeons.
It should be a nice night. I like the Root Cellar even tho they don't have any drink specials.
Long John), Mia Friedman of Hollow Deck and Ted Lee of Feeding Tube Records on stage with me playing music. Before we play our set though, Jenifer Gelineau and Willie Gussin wheel out their new project, Snow Pot, and give us all a sonic whirl. The night is a lazy 3 hours of 3 bands so there will be plenty of time for the groups to expand for us and with us and by 10 pm we will be entranced by Bob Fay's band NIGHT SCHOOL which includes Andy Goulet and Jim Bliss. I put the show together because I wanted to listen to those guys play songs.
MT Presents :Gary Higgins, Pigeons, Sunburned Hand of the Man and Frozen Corn will be lighting up the place.
If you haven't had enough by then, head back over to the Root Cellar in Greenfield to see some rhythms with the Big Mean Sound Machine. Horns are my favorite.
