Rhumb Line guest host, new blood & lots of new videos

Allen Estes will be sitting in for Fly Amero tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Rhumb Line where he’ll introduce Maine singer/songwriter Barry Michaud to Gloucester.

We’re beginning to get caught up publishing new videos on gimmesound (we’ve still got a lot to go) and today we added several new Allen Estes videos (click here).  Below is one of his new songs about Good Harbor Beach that was recorded on Local Music Seen:

BTW: Surfing at Good Harbor has been spectacular the last three weekends.

Of course, you can see great music all week long and into the weekend.  Check out the full schedule of live music in Gloucester here.
