A quick post about some MAJOR happenings for some of my favorite local acts!
First, Baylock will be rocking the stage at Lupo’s tonight opening for The Wailers. Its always a bonus when local acts get to grace the stage at Lupo’s, but for the especially opening for such a well known act as such, if you dig roots reggae, Lupo’s is where you should be TONIGHT!
Second, The Bull and The Butterfly has released his self titled debut! The new project, comprised solely of local music veteran Ricky Valente (with six official releases under his own name). Valente has taken full control of the process of music, composing, recording, producing, mixing and distributing this release. Oh did I mention he plays every instrument and provides all the vocals on this most recent release as well. Samples can be heard via Myspace, just to hold you over till you can get your hands on a copy!
Thirdly, Deer Tick, the staple of the local country flavored alt rock scene is beginning to get the widespread national attention they deserve. These 4 hardworking gentleman have been touring and playing non stop for what seems like years, but they still had time to sit down with NBC’s venerable news man, Brian Williams, for an interview featured in his new web series, BriTunes.
