Show your love for Gloucester’s Rock Star, Jon Butcher, right down the road in Beverly tomorrow night
Rock stars just keep coming to Gloucester. First it was T Max, publisher of The Noise, New England’s longest running music magazine. (See a series of videos we shot promoting Gloucester’s music scene here.)
Then Jon Butcher moved to Gloucester and you could see him acoustic at Jalapenos, Rhumb Line and Shalin Liu. Tomorrow, his band, The Jon Butcher Axis, releases their newest CD at a very special — and very much plugged in — CD Release Concert right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.
In addition to music from his new CD, you’ll hear tunes from “Kiss the Sky”, a feature film directed by Norman Lang, produced by Bill Rosenthal (who will appear with the band tomorrow on keys) and starring Jon Butcher and Tara Buck Pierce (of HBO’s hit series “True Blood”). Jon has been commissioned to score the film, which is shooting in Boston, New York, Miami, London and Reykjavik Iceland through mid-2015. You can still get tickets here — and the best available seats are in the balcony here. So bop on down the road to Beverly tomorrow and catch a true rock star up close and personal. Here’s some stellar guitar work from his Larcom Theatre concert last April:
