Ether in the Attic: Episode #143 - Existing in the Light - 20170731

An oncoming heatwave lurks in the waning August Sun. Embrace it or run from it? Ride the snake my friends. It all comes back on itself eventually. Turn off the A/C (if you have it) Grab some ice (if you can get it), and celebrate the fact that its hot enough to melt it.

 

P.S. I'm making hats made out of hubcaps at the stand this week. Far more fashionable than your standard tin-foil hat, and with equal heat radiation & signal interference properties.

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!
