Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved the Celebrate Gloucester Benefit Concert featuring John Sebastian to Saturday, September 13 at the UU Meetinghouse. Get tickets here.
This is one more example of how things often work out despite my frustration when I found out about the conflict. The UU Meetinghouse a fitting venue given that this concert helps raise money for its restoration and the acoustics are excellent. But with no air conditioning, it wouldn’t have worked for an August concert. However, it’s perfect for September when the average high is 72 and low is 55 (it might be a little chilly at 8pm on the water that time of year) and the cushioned pews are quite comfortable.
This concert is a perfect opportunity to experience the music that helped define a generation up close and personal. Here’s a video of John Sebastian at Woodstock (45 years ago this August):
BREAKING NEWS: We just announced the Celebrate Gloucester Benefit Concert Series — three great concerts for three great causes, beginning with Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee John Sebastian on August 15th, the 45th anniversary of his performance at Woodstock. Get tickets here.
Once in a while it just happens. Seats that were sold or held for the band get released on the day of the show. Well, that just happened for tonight’s John Sebastian concert at The Larcom Theatre down the road in Beverly. We figure FOBs should have first crack at snatching them up before they’re gone. Get them here. They won’t last very long.
Were you at Woodstock? Wish you’d been there? Come see John Sebastian tonight and ask him what THIS was like (watch video if you want to know what I’m talking about)
