Fresh off another iconic National Anthem performance at
majestic Fenway Park, the legendary Jon Butcher graces our

Every bit as gutsy, rootsy and soulful as we’ve always known
his music to be. Come meet Jon Butcher, up close and
personal. It all starts at 7! ~ Fly

Hold on to your hats! Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight! w/ Bob Davis, David Brown, Dave Mattacks and dear Ol’ Dave Sag himself. 8:30 @ The Rhumb Line 7.21.2016

dave sag bob davis dave mattacks and david brown

This week’s clash of the gods features the return match of Euphonium, the Roman God of fake IDs, versus Hernia, the Greek Goddess of surgical appliances. No! Wait! That’s my tri-polar self talking. Indeed, I hear voices in other people’s heads! This is what they really tell me:
This Thursday sees the fabulous return of guitar slingers Mr.Bob Davis, aka Johnny Carbuncle and Mr. Dave Brown, the world’s biggest… practitioners of bigness,that is, as their incredible styles clash and remagnetize in the sphere of possibilities. The Atomic Clock, Mr. Dave Mattacks, provides the impetus: I provide the Basest. this is the Rhumb line, where all is possible. This is Thursday: hours:8:30 to 11:30.

Yours truly, Dave

Local Artist Naomi Lee is happy to be able to share her artwork at Addison Gilbert Hospital and at other local spots around town.

naomi art agh

Naomi Lee was called and offered an opportunity to show her art for the second time at Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester, MA, through the end of July.

Naomi says she is so happy to be able to share her feelings on canvas. Her passions, the warmth of the sun, the calm of the moon, respect for the strength of the wind and the power of the sea.
Naomi, a self taught artist has been asked to take part in exhibiting at the Marblehead and Beverly Art Festivals. Also, The Annisquam Art Gallery for the past three years. She is currently a member of the Beverly and Salem Art Associations.

You can see other art by Naomi around town at the Cape Ann Brewery, Capt Bill’s Wale Watch and the Welcome Center at Harbor Loop. Her next art show is scheduled at Cape Ann Coffees for the months of September and October

Dance the night away at the Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight with Steve Sadler, Jimmy Scoppa and Mr. Jeff Casper @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 7.14.2016


We’re having a guitar extravaganza this Thursday. I’m calling’ in the big guns for a battle plan.
First, We got the commodious Mr. Steve Sadler and his willfully meandering slide catarrh in the top spot. He sings, he plays anything;  he does it all.



On the other side, there’s Mr. Jim Scoppa, guitarist non pareil,  with his gas-fired style and smoking amplifier. Mr. Andrew “Pops” Jones will be freaking out on the drums. I’ll be in the middle with a bunch of new toons to torture you with. Ask your doctor if The Rhumb Line is right for you!
