The week following this one, I’m going to be on vacation (more so than I already am). I’ll have a computer, but on the off chance I don’t get around to posting about what’s going on, I’ll try to cover the next two weeks here.
Songwriter Sunset: This week, two of my absolute favorite Erie songwriters are going to be paired up. Tony Kellogg and Matt Texter will be playing our Thursday night show this week. When I talk about local area songwriters who taught me a thing or two just by doing what they do, these two are up there on that list. The following Thursday, there will be no Songwriter Sunset do to me being on vacation. Edinboro staple Tiger Maple String Band will be playing in my absence.
Speaking of TMSB, singer-songwriter of the group Lori Burke had to make a cancellation at The Hotel Bar in Edinboro this Friday (July 18th), and was kind enough to pass the gig along to me! So this Friday, I will be play from 6 to 9pm at The Hotel Bar. I myself was supposed to play their over the past winter, but came down with a nasty cold that weekend. So it’s nice to have a second chance.
The week after (once I’m done sunning myself on the exotic Lake Erie shores), Strangers and Liars will be taking part in their second appearances The Gathering at Chaffee’s!
This year the event is implementing a second stage to eliminate down time between acts. Strangers and Liars will be performing two twenty-five minute sets on Saturday (July 26th), first one from 9:10 to 9:35, second one from 11:00 to 11:25.
And I think that’s everything regarding the next two weeks. Hopefully if I missed something, someone will point it out. Until then, I’m asleep on the beach. Join me at your leisure.
