Improv or Stand Up…You Choose

You know what I don’t do nearly enough?  Go to comedy shows.

Every few years a few of us get together and make plans to take in a show….and then, inevitably I find myself wondering, “Why don’t I do this more often?”

Who doesn’t need a good, honest, unbridled laugh every so often?

Last week I did just that.  I laughed, and laughed, and laughed.

Somehow, a year has gone by since my friends opened Laugh Boston and, on the club’s 1st anniversary, it was finally time to cross it off this year’s bucket list. I am so glad that I did! The comedians were, well, hysterical and the club itself is, dare I say, the perfect combination of industrial yet cozy.  Its fantastic location within the Westin Waterfront in Boston’s Seaport district doesn’t hurt either.  Nor does its full bar and “light fare” menu.

Laugh Boston is, as they say, “the stand-up brother to the Improv Asylum, Boston’s improv & sketch comedy theater located in the North End.”

If you haven’t been there either….you are totally missing out. In contrast to Stand Up comedy, the Improv Asylum features incredibly quick-witted improvisation and sketch comedy.  Which, in my humble opinion, takes a true artist to pull off.  They can boast to over 10,000 shows since its opening in 1998.

So, dinner and drinks in the North End and then a riot of an evening at the club. Or, a trip to the Seaport District, tons of laughs at the stand up club, and maybe even a quick overnight stay at the Westin? With summer coming to an end, that’s two good excuses to get over not only the A. Piatt Andrew, but also, the Tobin Bridges!

A special treat this week as we welcome Ms. Danielle Miraglia to our stage.  She’s a  real up and coming talent in the musical world and I’m so glad to have her.She’s everywhere these days, so catch her before you can’t afford it! Mr. Blob Enik, fanciful thought-provoking glitarist , has brought her to my attention and will be joining us. Also, Mr.Jim Gambino, ace pinky-wiggler, will be on keyboard dooties as well as that landscape-beheaded drummbler, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. Of course, Salmon Dave Sag will be on base, with a full count. I wouldn’t miss it for the world!

VIP SELL OUT ALERT: John Sebastian VIP Tickets for Saturday (9/13) almost gone

Only a few VIP tickets left for John Sebastian at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse (GET VIP TICKETS HERE).  VIP gets you in the first 5 rows, plus exclusive early entry and a Celebrate Gloucester Commemorative VIP Laminate.

CG_2014_JohnSebastian

As of now, there are plenty of standard seats left, but they’re going fast too, so you might not want to wait until the last minute.  Get tickets NOW so you can relax, vote in tomorrow’s primary and enjoy the rest of the week with one less worry on your mind.

Rock n Roll Hall of Famer John Sebastian comes to Gloucester Next Saturday 9/13

It’s not often that a rock star this big performs in downtown Gloucester.  Remember The Lovin’ Spoonful?

How about Woodstock, which was 45 years ago this August?

When John Sebastian performs next Saturday at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse, he won’t be wearing the tie-dye jacket he’s got on in this video, because it’s now on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. He will, however, sing some of his most enduring #1 hits like “Do You Believe In Magic?”, “Daydream”, “Summer In The City” and “Welcome Back” the theme song from Welcome Back Kotter.

And he’ll tell some wonderful, fascinating stories rooted in the major role he played in the mid-’60s rock revolution.  Don’t miss this rare chance to experience music that defined a generation up close and personal.  Get your tickets now (right here).

Chris Stovall Brown joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight at 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line. 9.4.2014

Omigod….what an amazing weekend Labor Daze was. Lots o’ music and drunken dancing. Anybody who livered through it:  congratulations. The clinic is open at Addison-Gilbert and Sullivan for those of you who can’t stop crying. Now onto the zbig news.
Let’s welcome back Mr. Chris “Stovetop” Brown to our stage this Thursday. Winner of this years Hugh Beaumont Award for excellence in gum chewing, Mr.. B. is sure to get your heart in a big tither as he bites his way thru the chord changes  without dropping a stitch of laughter. But, seriously, folks, Chris is one of my personal favorites, as he can play guitar, sing and yuck it up with the best of them. Never a dull moment.
And we’re using a cool and totally new drummbler in the form of Mr. Chris Anzelone, a monster in his own right. Can’t wait! c’mon down and watch the fur fly!

“Beautiful” May Not Do The Eagle Justice

Thatcher, Finn, and I spent a glorious morning touring the United States Coast Barque Eagle.  Gloucester is obviously fortunate to be home to such amazing vessels as The Adventure, The Lannon, and the Ardelle, but…as I explained to my boys…this weekend is like a Red Sox home game in that those ships get to play host to some other fabulous “away team” vessels.

The Eagle being one of them.

I’m not quite sure that “Beautiful” does her justice.

What do you think?

The Eagle is conducting an Open House until 7:00 in the evening. I highly recommend a trip down behind Americold to see her!

Boston Globe lists Gloucester Schooner Festival in “10 Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend in New England”

After this spectacular article in the New York Times a couple of weeks ago, it’s nice to see this piece in the Boston Globe’s travel section listing 10 Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend in New England.

 

Weekend Starts Tonight with FREE Harbor Loop Concert feat. What Time Is It Mr. Fox?

So you think the Schooner Fest starts tomorrow?  Think again.  You’ve gotta consider a free concert at Harbor Loop right in the heart of Gloucester’s waterfront, as the beginning of Schooner Fest. (Complete Schooner Fest Schedule here.  Henri Smith Tickets here)

Last year I saw crew coming off visiting schooners who were charmed by the Harbor Loop concert and astounded when I told them we have these every week. Thank you Bradley Royds!

So come on down to Harbor Loop tonight and party with one of the most creative local bands, What Time Is It Mr. Fox?

Music begins at 6:30pm with Piano Forte opening.  Just in case you’ve never seen Mr. Fox, read this:

“Time has come for Mr. Fox”
- Barry Thompson, Boston Herald

“Catch him as his star rises”
- Adam Feldman, Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick)

“a triumph of mood and style, an unforgettable musical, theatrical and emotional experience.”
- Edge

“can simmer in blues, tremble with high drama, and faint into a yawning croon”
- Michael Brodeur, Boston Phoenix

This Wednesday Guest Host: BRADLEY ROYDS!! @ The Rhumb Line. 8-11pm
