Bob Davis aka Johnny Carwash tonight with David Brown and Dave Mattacks @ Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm 2.4.2016

bob davis johnny carwash

 

Time to wax your surfboards and slather yourselves with sunblock as we welcome back Mr. Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday night. He’s been busy changing his tune list and reconfiguring his brainstem to wow you with a whole bunch of new stuff for your listening pleasure. Lotta work for me, but a real hoot!
He’s bringing along the masters of mayhem in the form of Mr. Dave Brown and Mr. David Mattacks to nail down the rhythm section. Also , his son Jason will be singing a few toons. Alfred Hitchcock will be shooting some film, too. Don’t miss it!
Super Bowl Sunday sees me whooping it up early (3 to 6) with Chris “Stovall” Brown and Chris Fitz at Brodie’s Seasick Cafe in beautiful downtown Salem. A really nice venue. Come early and help load firewood around the stake!

Yours Truly,

Dave Sag

“If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you haven’t died during the day.” -Malachy McCourt

On St. Patricks day, you can mosey on down the road to Beverly’s intimate Larcom Theatre, and see the only Boston area performance of the critically acclaimed Irish comedy, “A Couple of Blaguards” by Frank McCourt (Pulitzer Prize winning author of the New York Times Bestseller “Angela’s Ashes”) and Malachy McCourt, author of New York Times Bestseller “A Monk Swimming.”

Called “Wickedly Funny” by Time Out New York, “Memorable” by the New York Times with “An unholy amount of charm!” (Washington Post). GET TICKETS HERE!

According to Malachy McCourt, This show is the result of Frank and me listening to the stories of our elders which in turn tunes the ear, the eye and the tongue to observe and give voice to even the most trivial of events. I think we had more fun than anyone writing and performing Blaguards, which has become an affectionate term for the rowdy, outgoing, and sometimes drinking sort of boys. If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you haven’t died during the day.

Veteran actors Howard Platt (“What About Joan?” “Sandford and Son,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “The Rock,” “Nixon” … many more) and Jarlath Conroy (“True Grit,” “Law & Order,” “NYPD Blue,” “Putzel,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Across the Universe,” “Kinsey,” “Stay,” “Day of the Dead,” “Heaven’s Gate,” to list but a very few) portray Malachy and Frank McCourt in this extraordinarily moving and “Wickedly Funny” stage production.

Can you imagine a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?

Don’t make the Bowie Mistake I made in 1973, 1974 & at least a dozen times since…

When I was a teenager it felt like I’d live forever.  By 18 or 19 I had lost that feeling of invincibility, but transferred some of its essence to a select group of celebrities whom I admired.  David Bowie was one of those lucky few. Brilliant, enigmatic, mysterious … in my mind, mythical … it felt like Bowie would live forever.

I had a chance to see the Ziggy Stardust tour in NYC, but for some reason it didn’t work out. Funny how I can’t remember what kept me from going, but if I had seen Bowie in 1973, I’m quite sure I’d have no problem recalling THAT experience today.

Then in 1974 I had a chance to see his Diamond Dogs tour when he came to Indianapolis. “But I want to see Ziggy,” I thought. (A friend who had gone to the show I was too “busy” to attend told me how “completely blown away” he was.)  I’ll just wait until he comes back around with that show.

Here’s the thing: Bowie never came back around with anything. Rather, he broke barriers and blew our minds for another 42 years … and every time I might have seen Bowie live there was always something keeping me from going, any sense of urgency lulled to sleep by my fabricated assumption that he’d be around forever.

When I saw “The Man Who Fell to Earth” (I think at the Harvard Square Theatre — still one of my favorite movies) I remember saying to myself I MUST see Bowie live someday.

Monday morning when I awoke to the news of Bowie’s death (which felt shockingly untimely) reality hit: “Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do …” I’m never going to see Bowie live.

Vickie and I were just saying last week that we had to see Bowie on this next tour … and I was confident that we would because, even as recently as last week, it still felt like Bowie would live forever.  And he will through his music.  We still have that … here’s his latest masterpiece.

“The Good Old Salty Jazz Band” Tonight at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 1.7.2016

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

Happy New Year!  Here’s one resolution you should enforce: c’mon out this Thursday and see a RARE appearance of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band  at the RhumbLine. Caught enflagrante, these cats will curl your toes with their invigorating versions of famous early 20th century jazz, ten pin alley, tin pan alley-oop and great american schlongbook classics. There’s like nine of us, or mebbe even 13, depending on who remembers to show up. This is a rare event, and I guarantee your satisfaction or double your money back! Actually, it’s free! Showtime 8:30!
