Video Recap: July 25th 2014 P. Lowe and Friends featuring Chachi

This fine Friday evening I ventured out of my normal beaten path and headed to Pearl Lounge for night of Jazz-Soul-Zouk-Hop featuring P. Lowe and Chachi.  Being my first time to Pearl I was quite surprised and impressed with the back courtyard and menu.  Paul had a band comprised of heavy hitting local mercenaries, as he normally does, who played tightly with P. Lowe (Paul Lowe Jr.) and Angela (his sax):

The always impressive Chachi (Carvalho) was in the house and came to the Mic toward the end of the night to slay a few raps with a live band backing:

Photo Feature: October 25th 2014 with Ian Fitzgerald, G. W. Mercure, Strange Machines, and Dopapod

I made it a two venue evening this Saturday Night. Starting out close to home I hit The Baskethouse at Cafe Zog for an acoustic songwriter feature with G. W. Mercure hosting and Ian Fitzgerald guesting. Making a hasty departure after Ian’s second set I ventured over to The Spot Underground for the tail end of Strange Machines first set and settled in for Dopapod for the remainder of the evening.

Video Recap: July 18th 2014 Torn Shorts and the Little Compton Band at Bucket

The Sound Check Series at The Bucket Brewery is always a great time, but this night was a special treat that featured two of my favorite local live acts.  The Little Compton Band started the night and brought their melodic and harmonic blues rock:

Torn Shorts took the stage next and provided a hot set on short notice after some recent lineup changes:

After the main party at The Bucket, a bunch of us ventured a short distance to Torn Shorts’ practice space for some late night jaming after party:

Photo Feature: October 21st 2014 with Zach Schmidt, Ian Fitzgerald, and Smith&Weeden

Another rare work night escape for me, this Tuesday evening I ventured over to Casa de Schilberg for another installment of Shawn’s house shows. Zach Schmidt started the night, in town from Nashville on a bit of a tour. Second to stage, Ian Fitzgerald delighted the audience with his expertly woven stories. Smith&Weeden rounded out the night with a more toned down acoustic style set compared to their normal rowdy bar room volume.

Photo Feature: October 16th 2014 with Haunt The House and Doctor Gasp (Dan Blakeslee)

I made a rare trip out on a work night for a special night this brisk Thursday evening.  Haunt The House opened the night at Casa de Schilberg bringing their ethereal folk sounds to a large audience in a vast living room.  The star of the night was Dan Blakeslee’s October alter ego, Doctor Gasp, who delighted with his fantastic humorous Halloween themed tracks.
