I love to procrastinate. One of my Grandfather’s favorite sayings (he had lots of them) is “Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow, ’cause you might not have to do it.”
It used to be that if you wanted to see live music in Gloucester and Cape Ann, you could decide at the last minute, stroll down to the venue just before showtime, get your tickets at the door, mosey on in and find a good seat.
Those days are gone. Oops, did you want to see Chelsea Berry & Friends at Crowell Chapel on Dec 7 or Cape Ann Big Band’s Shalin Liu matinee on Dec 8? Too bad. They’re sold out. The good news is that Chelsea & Friends added a new show on Dec 8 and there are still a few tickets for Cape Ann Big Band at 7pm.
More good news : we added a Sunday Matinee on Dec 15 for our Henri Smith Christmas show at The Larcom Theatre in Beverly, so you can still get good seats. And there are still a few seats left to some of the Shalin Liu shows we told you about in this post. But these won’t last long, so don’t think you’ve got much time to decide.
I think we can probably all agree that having a thriving music scene in Gloucester and Cape Ann is a good thing for all of us — even if it means we miss a few shows because we don’t pay attention to posts like this one that tell us to save the date.
