Gloucester Battle Of The Bands Fri and Saturday April 9th and 10th

City leaders, concerned musicians and the Gloucester Fishermen’s Athletic Assoc. have banded together to create a Battle of the Bands Weekend, Fri & Sat. April 9 & 10 at Gloucester High School Auditorium to raise money to help school sports and rebuild the crumbling bleachers at Newell Stadium so that football and other games can be played. Both events begin at 8 pm and feature the city’s top musical talent.

The Friday show is oriented more to younger bands and emcee’d by football record setter Connor Ressel, while the Sat. tilt features the cream of 7 area bands, headlined by Fly Amero, Allen Estes, Willie Alexander, The Tide and is emcee’d by the spectacular Linda Amero. Tickets are $10 for Friday and $20 for Saturday and 100% of the proceeds will go to save Gloucester sports, the stadium and cut sports fee’s for student athletes.

All parties are citizens committed to solving an immediate problem without waiting around for a cash strapped local government that can’t bail them out. For more info,  email

Kat Valentine, Cape Ann Brewing Featured In Cape Ann Magazine!

From Kat Valentine the creator of the Parlez Moi Blog and a bajillion books-

Cape Ann Magazine wrote an article about knitting on Cape Ann with some pictures from our Tuesday night Knit Night at Cape Ann Brewing’s Pub. They interviewed me and quote me in the article. I put pictures and a PDF of the article on my blog if you want to read it:
Our group:
And the “expert”, toasting the knitters who helped make her book a success:

Here are some pictures and videos from Coveted Yarn which is located just up the street from the dock here on East Main Street-

Refrigerator Bio (kinda) For Deb Clarke

Debbie Clarke requested people take pictures and explain stories about their lives through what they have on their refrigerators.  Well my fridge at home is just as plain as can be but we have a freezer down the dock on which we place stickers and magnets as they come into our lives.  So I guess the freezer down the dock is much more interesting.

If you would like to send in a sticker for me to add feel free to send it along to me Joey at Captain Joe and Sons in Gloucester.  I’ll be sure to take a picture of it and add it to the collection and post it up here on these pages.
