From Dave Sag – Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party
“We got a great show for you this week as we welcome back Ms. Diane Blue, vocalist xtroidinaire and Octomom of the blues.She will rock your world! Blacking her up will be Cliff Spencer keyboard octopus, and Jim Gwin, brother of Fred and thorn in Keith Lockhart’s side. Greg and I will be there, too, surveying the damage and bricking up the survivors with that cask of amontillado. This is a great band; don’t miss it!
And kiddies, by now you may know that my gumputer has short-sheeted my address book and I have lost many names, so, If you know others who wanna get back on the list, send ‘em to me. Bring it on!”

Friday: JOSHUA TREE
As The Nation’s premier tribute to U2, The Joshua Tree pride themselves with their ability to generate a unique musical experience that does not lend itself to impersonations.
Without compromising artistic integrity, the band has gone to great lengths to reproduce the distinct sound of one of the world’s most popular rock bands. Unique to The Joshua Tree is their dedication to the entire U2 songbook, including early fan favorites from the 1980-1987 period (Boy, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, and The Joshua Tree).
Playing each song with the same intensity and emotion, the band covers all phases of U2’s career from their first album Boy to the most recent, No Line on the Horizon.
Now Joshua Tree comes to Captain Carlo’s this Friday July 24th out on the deck and under the stars. Tell all your friends about this one it’s going to be a great night of music.
