OMG did you really wait ’till the last minute to get your Gloucester Blues Fest Tix? Save $12 get them now!

So … saving $12/ticket means nothing to you?  Really?  Here’s the thing: Advance sales END on Monday.  It’s a NO BRAINER to get your tickets RIGHT NOW — RIGHT HERE and save money! 

Every year the Gloucester Blues Festival gets better and better.  Next Saturday (Aug 8th) is your only chance to see major blues stars LIVE IN GLOUCESTER on the same stage.  Here’s a little taste of what you can expect from one of the SEVEN bands, Mitch Woods, who will ROCK stage Fort Park like you’ve never heard it done before!

 

It’s much harder to write a good review than a bad one

Inge Berge

It’s not that hard to write review panning a concert or an album.  You’ve probably read many such reviews.  It’s much more difficult to write a glowing piece that doesn’t sound corny or like a puff piece.  Below is one of the best examples of a rave review that I’ve ever read. It is at once intelligent, witty, entertaining, straight to the point and completely devoid of obscure references and highfalutin language reviewers all to often use in an attempt to show off their intellect.  It’s written by local singer/songwriter/composer/lighting designer Inge Berge, who is actually smart, so he doesn’t need to try and convince anybody.  Check it out:

Fans of exquisite music: Pay attention to Ruby Rose Fox. Her headlining at The Cabot tonight, courtesy of Peter Van Ness and GimmeLive is easily among the top 3 shows I’ve seen all year (and I see way too many shows.) This show was pure magic. Sublime. Genius.

Her songwriting is smart, heartfelt, genre-bending, profound and just plain gorgeous. Her musicianship is impeccable. Her stage presence is mysterious, deep, eclectic and sexy as all get-out. The backup singers blend like butter yet cut like a razor. The band is road-tight and stadium-confident. The material is presented with rock balls, sensual vulnerability and analytic intelligence. A show chemically cleansed of clichés and standard showbiz cheese.

I count myself among the lucky few who got to experience this evening of not-yet-world-famous MA-grown music before it turns into something more industry-processed. (Hopefully not.)

Unfortunately, what I find of Ruby Rose Fox’s music currently online does not quite do justice to the show I saw tonight. But I understand there’s a full length CD in the works. I’m first in line to purchase.

Sometimes you just gotta cross the bridge

Last night, a number of our Gloucester friends came to the Robert Randolph & The Family Band concert we presented at The Cabot in Beverly, some of whom exclaimed, “Boy it’s just amazing that we can see this level of music so close to home!”

Indeed, Beverly is about as close as a national touring artist, the likes of Robert Randolph, is likely to get to Gloucester.  So perhaps it’s time for us to extend our notion of “just down the road” to include Beverly, which is … dare I say … over the bridge.

Tomorrow we’re bringing three of the hottest Boston area bands to the Cabot stage: Boston Music Award winners Ruby Rose Fox and Jesse Dee with Salem’s Sarah & the Wild Versatile.  We believe all three bands will soon be playing much bigger venues — that are much farther away than Beverly and — oh yeah — charge a whole lot more for tickets.  ALL AGES  seats for tomorrow’s concert start at $15 (the same as it costs to see Jurassic World at the mall).  It’s a great show for your kids, who’ll be able to say “I saw them up close at The Cabot!”  Good seats are still available here.

FREE Concert on the Boulevard July 3 feat. Runaround & Laser Light Show

Ringo Tarr and the Gloucester Fund present another FREE CONCERT on the Boulevard featuring THE RUNAROUND SOUND starting at 5pm at the corner of Centennial and Western Ave (the Boulevard).

This has become a spectacular annual July 3 event drawing thousands of people down to the water for great music, dancing and fun for the whole family.

Music begins at 5pm, breaks for the Parade, resumes after the parade, breaks for the fireworks and continues after the fireworks with a spectacular laser light show.

It’s a terrific way to celebrate our independence.

Coastal Dog Swim Trunks Are The Only Swim Trunks Any Man Should Wear

The first time I wore these swim trunks were for the polar plunge.  They dry so quickly and are so comfortable, I can’t say enough about the inside compression short lining.  Unlike mesh swim trunk linings found on other swim trunks which make your man parts all uncomfortable, the Coastal Dog Swim Trunks with built in compression shorts offer support and comfort far greater than any other bathing suit I’ve ever worn.

If they cost three times as much they would be worth it.

TheIsland From Lukas Struppe and Matilda Grow

Lukas writes-
Hello Joey,

My name is Lukas Struppe and I am a student at Gloucester High School. My friend, Matilda Grow, have produced a short documentary on the influence the waterfront has on Gloucester’s culture. We were wondering if you could share it to the rest of Gloucester for us through your website. If you could let me know of your decision of posting it or not that would be great, but I will send the link to you anyway right now.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Sincerely,

Lukas Struppe
