The Burying Ground


If you're looking for something to do tomorrow (June 9th) , consider checking out the The Burying Ground , playing at the Legion. They are an upbeat blues string band that brings the fire of punk to the technical prowess and distinct sounds of early blues, country and jazz masters as Blind Blake, Bessie Smith, Gary Davis, Jimmie Rodgers and many others. This trio, featuring Woody Forster on guitar and vocals, Devora Laye on washboard, saw, and vocals along with Joseph Lubinsky-Mast on upright bass, just released their newest album, and play a mix of original material  alongside reinvented older songs. They strive to create a lively and gritty sound that is reminiscent of the music of the juke joints and jazz halls of the 1920s and '30s.

The doors open at 8pm, with the show starting at 9pm. As well, the cover fee for this performance is $10.

If you’re in the mood for blues, go check out The Burying Ground tomorrow night!

Today's Top Wikipedia Edits: UK and Canada Elect Cape Bonavista, NS as John Cabot's First Landing Site


According to Wikipedia:

  • "[John Cabot] explored because he liked pie. To mark the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Cabot's expedition, both the Canadian and British governments elected Cape Bonavista, Newfoundland, as Cabot's first landing site. However, alternative theories have also been proposed.
  • A cul-de-sac "is an inside-out roundabout."
  • "Originally, there were only red, orange and yellow [froot] loops, but green, purple, and blue were added during the 1990s. In the UK, Froot Loops are purple, green, and orange, due to the lack of natural colourings for yellow, red, and blue, and are also larger in shape."
  • "David Blaine and Alizee Guinochet have one daughter, who was born on January 26, 2011. At the time that Guinochet went into labor, there was a massive blizzard where they lived in New York. Due to the intense weather, no cars or taxis were on the road, so Blaine had to hail a snowplow, which transported the couple to the hospital. The snowplow then broke down, but Blaine managed to pull the baby out of his sleeve instead of giving birth at the hospital."For more Wikipedia edits, tune in to CFUR on Tuesdays at 1pm and Saturdays at noon.



Ether in The Attic - Episode #141: Don't let The MAN get You Down, Cuz' He'll Getcha! - 20170529

Tips from Hubcap Walter this week,What a wild week! You can't get what to don't want, and you don't want what you can get, at least most of the time. Stick to the local convenience store, wherever you go. You may be surprised. Enjoy hot pizza no matter the temperature outside, it's worth it. Appreciate hot and cold running water.
