Even though this is a blog — and a blog is supposed to be an immediate YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST medium — people have been telling us we should talk more about what’s happening the day after our post because they often read the posts the next day. We get it. Not everybody sits at a computer all day — and even some of you who do have bosses that want you to get some work done, not surf the web all day. So here we go:
IT’S A BIG FRIDAY NIGHT on Cape Ann with music for every taste. If you play your cards right, you can get to at least 2 live shows. Start out with Linda Amero Menage a Trio at the Franklin or Mia Chung, Elisabeth Ann Larson and Soo Bae performing all three of Brahms Piano Trios at Shalin Liu in Rockport. Then finish up with Ned & The Big Babies @ Rhumb Line. Plus there’s plenty more for nearly every other musical taste. See the full lineup here.
Here’s a video for all you piano, violin and cello players of Brahms Piano Trio No. 1 where you can follow along with the score:
And here’s one of my favorite clips (if a bit wobbly) of Ned & the Big Babies. Don’t you just love that groove! Ned is always right there with you and he’s one of those great bass players who plays bass like he LOVES it, not like he’d rather be playing lead guitar.
