Dave says,

I’m throwing Ms. Lisa Marie to the wolves this week as I bow out to the travel gods and take my muddy boots to New Orleans. I need a vacation. I’m gonna search for loop garou in the fetid swamps. I’m gonna get bit on my mojo hand. And I’m gonna eat too much. I can’t wait!
So Ms. LM is bringing in the heavy artillery in the form of Mr. Johnnie Juxo, Tarzan of the keys, Mr. Silverfish Steve on DDT glitar and Mr. Chris “Anzio” Anzelone on clubs. It’ll be a blast! And, I’ll see you next week! Always have fun!

Masters Moment

I am not a golfer, but I’d like to be some day.  Likewise, my boys haven’t spent much time swinging golf clubs, but it is something that I look forward to them falling in love with in the years to come.

It is funny to me, that as a non-golfer, I am totally smitten by the sport.  There’s something about the gorgeous fairways and greens, the history and tradition, and even the vocabulary….birdie, bogey, eagle, albatross, putt, slice, sink…that gives me the warm fuzzies.  And then, there’s the “uniform”…and, yes, I realize it isn’t really a uniform…I just wasn’t sure what else to call it. I’m not going to lie, in my books, it is hard to beat a good looking golfer in his Under Armor, Nike, what have you.  They even make visors look good.

The day that Finn was born I was induced at about 8:00 in the morning.  He was born just after 8:00 that night.  For most of the loooong day, The US Open was on the TV in my hospital room.  Call me crazy, but I think that somehow has something to do with the fact that, when a golf tournament is on TV, Finn can’t keep his eyes off of it.  For the record, Lucas Glover went on to win the tournament that year.

So, yesterday was no different.  After a really busy day, we settled in to unwind and watch the end of the Masters.  I am so glad that we did.  What a great learning opportunity for the boys to witness the history unfold.  21 year-old Jordan Spieth became the 2nd youngest golfer to win the Masters after only Tiger Woods and his 1997 performance.  He also became the 5th ever Masters Champion to hold the lead throughout the entire tournament.  “Wire to Wire” they say in golfing lingo.  With a final score of 18 under, he tied Tiger Woods for the lowest round in Masters history.  If not for a bogey on the 18th hole he would have broken the record.

More special than all of that, however, was watching Jordan Spieth celebrate with his family after his win.  Seeing his parents, grandfather, and more, obviously teary-eyed and unbelievably emotional and proud, was so tremendous. Watching Jordan hug them all, it was hard to not think of the hours, the commitment, the money, and the support, that they provided for him.  It was impossible to not think of the smiles, the cheers, the triumphs, and the dreams, that he provided to them.  The side of me that loves the sport enjoyed watching Jordan don the illustrious green jacket.  The mother in me saw his childhood flash by on the road to yesterday’s unbelievable day.

While we celebrate all of our children’s little successes weekly, if not daily, it was hard to not wonder what will be their “Masters Moment.”  What will be the pinnacle to their hard work and where will their road take them?

Fenway’s Hallowed Walls

If there’s one thing you can bank on, it’s that I will subject you to some Fenway Park photos each April.

I love baseball, but far more importantly, I love Fenway Park.  I think I’ve said before that there truly isn’t an inch of the park that I haven’t photographed and I am in love with its nooks and crannies.

While it has been fun to photograph the players and the games…I am much more passionate about the history inside those hallowed walls.

Through Grand Slams, walk-off homers, an “in the park home run”, World Series, Rolling Rally Parades, and so many more tremendous moments…my favorite moments are those when I have had the park to myself.  I have clocked some serious hours just roaming around Fenway on sunny summer days and, as cliche as it sounds, I swear those walls can talk.

Don’t miss out on Martha Davis and The Motels with Ruby Rose Fox opening @ The Larcom Theatre on April 22,2015

Martha Davis and The Motels

Her voice is unique, unmistakable and timeless. Already sold out at TCAN in Natic, Martha Davis and The Motels burst into Beverly on April 22 for one night only!

Don’t miss the band that defined MTV with their top 10 hits “Only the Lonely,” “Suddenly Last Summer,” “Total Control,” “Take the L out of Lover” and more.

“…arguably the most charismatic female performer in rock.”

– Robert Hilburn, The Los Angeles Times

“Martha Davis, of the Motels, was still strong in voice and admirably delivered hits like ‘Only The Lonely’ and ‘Suddenly Last Summer.'”

– Hollywood Reporter (about recent Hollywood Bowl Concert)

Ruby Rose Fox opening

Ruby Rose Fox, a vocal powerhouse of soul driven, edgy rock ‘n’ roll (with a nod to newwave pop), whose voice threatens to knock down the walls of any room in which she performs is hard at work to make 2015 her strongest year of new releases and live performances. Ruby Rose Fox was the lone standout of Boston-based artists to make The Boston Globe’s list of “10 Bands and Solo Artists to Watch in 2015,” and winner of the 2014 Boston Music Award for Best Female Vocalist in addition to her nomination for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.

“arty, edgy rock ‘n’ roll that lets her be Lou Reed and Nico at the same time … [and seems] to come from another scene, another world.”
– Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

The reason the header in the upper left corner reads “Don’t believe your eyes” is because of our 200+ lots we always have at our auctions, we only get to post a small percentage of photos. And since auction lots come in right up until the day of the sale, there are always a lot of surprises. And often the best items in the auction, are not even shown in the photos.

This will be another one of our CASH AUCTIONS, so please know that CASH will be the only accepted form of payment.

Here’s what the cat has dragged in so far:

ART: A large o/c painting of a ship by Robert Alexandar, vintage lithographed calendars from the Cape Ann Tool co. of Rockport, MA, an etching by Geo. Harvey Wainwright of Annisqaum, & more paintings, prints, antique photographs & tintypes etc.

Over 1,500 antique postcards including small town New England cards, cards of Gloucester, MA, Newburyport MA, beautiful Victorian embossed Christmas postcards, some real-photo cards, military cards & more.

Silver Morgan Dollars & other collectible coins, a large bucket of antique keys, a beautiful fossil & amethyst crystals, primitives, antique tools, sea-glass, paperweights, ephemera, jewelry, pottery, porcelain, lamps, decorating items, fabrics and much more!
We’ll have our usual 200+ lots crossing the block.
Please bring your own boxes and packing.
There’s no snackbar on the premises, but we’re tucked in between Dunkin Donuts & The 525 (Magnolia’s great new restaurant!)

This Thursday let’s welcome back Gloucester’s own Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash for another groovy night of surf toons and other related guitar ruminations. Bobby’s the best! With his effervescent style he’ll have you on the floor writhing with abandon. Along with David “Doc” Vincent on the skins, the circle is complete. We’ll be re-creating all your memories that were playing on your 8-track while you were losing your virginity. Don’t miss it!

When the Cat’s Away

Anyone recognize this guy?  Circa 1987/1988.

For the record, while appreciating that amazing head of hair and thinking, “Just what would I call that awesomeness if I wanted to head to my local barber/hair dresser and get that done this very second?” he, himself, describes it like this

It’s more of a Power Mullet, than a mud flap…or perhaps the “Richard Marx” / “Simon LaBonn”

Tee Hee.  I laugh, but it is really quite impressive.  I was a junior in High School then.  My girlfriends and I might have stalked his locker if we went to school together.

Sax Gordon Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 3.26.2015

sax
Dave says,

So, this is the big one: The return of the one and only Mr. Gordon Beadle. The man with the golden Sax. This hypoxia-inducing master of the honky sax will have you gasping for breath as he literally sucks all the oxygen out of the room and recycles it wobbling directly into your pineal gland. Woe to those who miss this.
But, wait, there’s more: Mr. Edd Scheer, leader of the Love Dogs, will be bashing the drums and singing all those crazy old songs that you know and love. Furthermore, Mr. Mike DiBari will be plucking those glitar strings. this could be one of my all-time favorite units to work with. It always takes me two days to recover! We all sing, we all play and we’re gonna laugh our asses off, to boot.  You should come!
