Brand new Martha Davis video and podcast — you saw and heard them here first!

Martha Davis and Ruby Rose Fox just keep on surprising us with wonderful new music and collaboration.  Check out this video from their concert in New York last night.  Tomorrow they appear right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.  Good seats left — especially in the balcony.  Get them here!

And if you missed Aurelia Nelson’s excellent interview with Martha Davis on 104.9FM radio show, “Curtain Up” on Sunday, you can listen in right here:

1980s hit-maker Martha Davis interview on 104.9 SUNDAY @ 9AM

This Sunday (4/19) at 9AM, Aurelia Nelson welcomes 80s rocker Martha Davis, founder of The Motels, to her North Shore 104.9 radio show “Curtain Up” for a spirited interview about what it’s like to be “the most charismatic female performer in rock,” as described by Robert Hilburn of The Los Angeles Times.

Martha Davis is credited with helping to define the New Wave sound that dominated MTV and pop radio in the 1980s.

But she’s not one of those rockers who’s satisfied to live off her prior success. She’s still writing new songs, recording new music and discovering new talent, like Boston Music Award Winner Ruby Rose Fox who opens The Motels show down the road at The Larcom Theatre on Wednesday (good seats still available, especially in the balcony — get them here.)

And she’s about to release a film of her live performance at the 50th anniversary of the famed Whisky-A-Go-Go, where she changed the face New Wave music forever.  Check out the trailer here:

“This Sunday’s guest is Chris Palermo of Mass Movie Mavens. We will be talking about upcoming film projects happening on the North Shore, including the latest on “Manchester by the Sea” being produced by Matt Damon and now starring Casey Affleck.”

Worth getting up for — even if you stayed up late with John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band at the Larcom tomorrow night.  Don’t forget our local favorites, The Gary Backstrom Band is opening.  What better way to support them than to bop down the road to Beverly and revel in their opportunity to open for a multi-platinum recording star!

HenriCDCoverTonight at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre, Gloucester’s Henri Smith releases his first CD in a decade (recorded live at the Larcom in March) with a concert celebration that will, of course, include dancing a traditional New Orleans Second Line parade in the aisles.

This will be your last chance to get your CD signed by Henri and the band before the holidays.  Very good seats still available in the balcony (here) and a few good seats also left in the orchestra (here).

Daisy Nell (R) and Capt. Stan

“Curtain Up” host Aurelia Nelson

Tomorrow (Sunday) at 9AM Aurelia Nelson Welcomes Schooner Festival Chair Daisy Nell and Capt. Stan on her North Shore 104.9FM Radio show “Curtain Up”.

Daisy & Stan perform 2 songs and will tell you everything you need to know about next weekend’s Schooner Festival, one of our favorite weekends.  Click here for a complete Schooner Festival Schedule.

And here’s the definitive answer to Joey’s question about the Lobster Bake (from the Schooner Fest website)

Schooner Festival Lobster Bake

Two years ago, local blogger Capt. Joey of GoodMorningGloucester came up with a great idea!  Joey suggested that, in order to get the Gloucester community involved with the Schooner Festival, a community lobster bake should be held during the Festival.

Recognizing good advice, the Festival Committee held the 1st annual Community Lobster Bake in 2013 and it was a huge success!  Check out GoodMorningGloucester to see just how successful the event was!

The Community Lobster Bake will be held again in 2014 on Saturday, August 30, 4:30pm-7:30pm at Maritime Gloucester on Harbor Loop in downtown Gloucester. Enjoy freshly steamed lobster, corn on the cob, and a Virgilio’s roll– all for $15 per person. Relax with your dinner on the slopes of the Fitz Henry Lane lawn while listening to Old Cold Tater & Friends. Also available for sale: hot dogs, hamburgers, cookies, cold sodas & spring water, beer & wine. Tickets available in advance from Maritime Gloucester or at the event.

Aurelia Nelson Gives Chazz Palminteri Sista Felicia’s Cookbook

A Bronx Tale is in my top 10 all time movies, my favorite scene was in the bar when the bikers came in and Chazz delivers the classic line- “Now Youse Can’t Leave.”  You gotta watch the YouTube clip of that scene just below this picture.

Local Star Chelsea Berry on Curtain Up Tomorrow (SUN) @ 9am 104.9FM

Following her trend of interviewing local and national rock stars, Aurelia Nelson is hosting Chelsea Berry on her “Curtain Up” show tomorrow (Sunday) at 9am on North Shore 104.9FM.

Chelsea is back from a her national tour and will be performing Friday (7/25) at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion (the BIG tent).  There are still seats available and you can get tickets here.

We know we live in a very special music community when someone who made her name in Gloucester comes back from a national tour and remembers where she got her start by appearing on local radio and performing in local venues.

Aren’t you glad you live here?

Just in case you don’t know who Chelsea Berry is, check out this video of her at Shalin Liu:

Get away from the computer, but stay in the know anyhow

Aurelia Nelson @ Jalapenos

Tomorrow (SUN) morning at 9:00 A.M., on Aurelia Nelson’s 104.0 FM radio show Curtain Up, Peter gives us a rundown of Gloucester’s early Summer event highlights — yes, we know Summer doesn’t begin astronomically until the solstice (June 21 at 6:51 A.M.) but it’s sunny today, so we’re gonna push the season and call it Summer.

The cool thing about listening to a radio show like Curtain Up is that you don’t have to be sitting down at the computer to find out what’s going on.  You could be cleaning the house, weeding the garden, driving, cooking breakfast … or just sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee … relaxing.

Get up early tomorrow (9am is 0-dark-hundred for us) and listen in so when your friends ask, “What is there to do up there in Gloucester?” you’ll have ready answers at the tip of your tongue.  Then, for last minute updates, you can always check our live music schedule here.

 

Having some fun with a radio ad and Adobe Premiere

Now we often fast forward through TV commercials or change the car radio station when an ad come on, but once in a while somebody crafts such a good radio spot that you can’t help but listen.  That’s what our friends Aurelia Nelson & Jay Foss at Northshore 104.9 did this week and I was so inspired when I heard it that I decided to pop into Adobe Premiere and have some fun.  This is what came out:

And by the way, there are still good seats left to what could be your last chance to see these young, rising blues stars before they break into big venues.  Get them here.

Did you miss Henri Smith & Aurelia Nelson’s banter on Sunday? Listen right here and get in on the scoop!

Aurelia Nelson (L), host of Curtain Up with Henri Smith

Aurelia Nelson (L), host of “Curtain Up” with Henri Smith

These two tease each other like brother and sister!

Aurelia Nelson and Henri Smith have loads of fun on this show and it truly comes across.  Henri starts off singing,  Aurelia accuses him of not knowing the words to songs, all the while hidden meanings to New Orleans favorites are revealed.  Plus you’ll get a hint of some special music planned for his upcoming concert featuring Grammy Award winners Charles Neville & Amadee Castenell.  

Listen here and join in the fun!

Henri Smith Tells Aurelia Nelson what the song Jambalaya means on Sunday at 9am on 104.9FM

The best radio Christmas shows you’ll hear this year ~ SUN 12/22 @9AM & 7PM on 104.9

Curtain Up host Aurelia Nelson

We’ve pointed out before that North Shore 104.9 host Aurelia Nelson frequently features local talent on her show, “Curtain Up” (see examples here).  This Sunday 12/22 she pulls out all the stops with her hyper-local Christmas show featuring some of Cape Ann’s top talent performing a Christmas repertoire that rivals what you’d hear on a big city radio show!

You’ll hear Dan King’s wonderful new Christmas song “Handmade With Love (Present)” featuring Charlee Bianchini, “I wish I Could Fly” written by Allen Estes & Fly Amero, new songs by Bryan Alex, John Stevens and Angie Miller (Beverly’s own Idol finalist) and selections by the Beantown Swing Orchestra.

We know you’ll be at Gloucester’s UU Church on Saturday night, where you can see many of these stars LIVE — and we promise the show will be over in plenty of time for you to get a good night’s sleep and get up by 9am for Curtain Up on North Shore 104.9.

Then on Sunday night at 7pm, you can hear a real radio play, “It’s a Wonderful Life.”  This is a rare experience you simply can’t get any other way.  Build a fire, sit together as a family in the living room, tune the radio to 104.9, chill in a comfy chair, close your eyes and lose yourself in this classic story.  When’s the last time you heard a radio play?
