A Book Party in Rockport!

BookADayinRockportPlease stop by this Sunday, July 19th and join Mary Faino at her shop in Rockport, The Paper Mermaid, along with me (aka S.D. Kelly) for a party in celebration of our new release: A Day in Rockport.

Mary created beautiful illustrations of iconic places throughout Rockport, and I wrote the text to go along with her work. It was a fun collaboration and we enjoyed the entire process, from choosing the places that would make it into the book — ranging from Millbrook Meadow to Bearskin Neck to the Headlands — to the more technical aspects of book design.

We’ll have locally-made treats at the party, a Scavenger Hunt, and a raffle to win a framed print of one of the illustrations in the book. Celebrate Rockport with us and stop by!

Dave says,

Our post-dramatic Forth of July Edema Series continues this Thursday with the crash-landing of Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle on our shores.If I gotta tell you who he is, you’ve been in an ocarina-induced coma. So, wake up! An icon for Yahooism, he’ll be arriving with his eye sockets red glare and his sax bombs bursting in air. The joint will be jumpin’! Who needs fireworks!
Not only that, but he’ll be bringing along that bubbling two-fisted master of Qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari. A great match. Also, former RFB drummmbler, Mr. Ephraim Lowell will be propelling his arms in a desperate attempt to make sense of the whole thing. I’ll be there, too, in a few pieces, but serviceable. You don’t want to miss this! Showtime 8:30.

Willie “Loco” Alexander the Godfather of Punk joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm to 11:30pm 6.4.2015

Dave says,

It’s Ragnarock and roll time as we welcome back The Godfather of Punque: Mr. Willie Alexander. Just back from a tour of Asgard, his horned helmet is sharpened to the point of no return. We’ll be cranking it out at the Rhumbline this Thursday from 8:30 on, with the likes of the ferocious Billy Loosigian on catarrh, and Steevee Chaggaris on eggbeaters. When you clock the human race with the stopwatch of history, it’s a new record every time!

Then, on Sunday, join me for an evening of blues at the Mile Marker at the Cape Ant Marina. From 6 to 9, we’ll be serving up copious amounts of frisson with a great band featuring Chris “Stovall” Brown on gootar and vocals, the magnificent Joe Bargar on keys  and vocals, myself on bass and a drummmbler yet awakened from  a deep sleep.
Don’t forget Monday afternoon matinees at the Rose Baker Senior Center where The Old Salties honk it up for free  from 1 to 3 P.M. It’s free, like advice!

Get ready for the joint to be rockin! “Mr. Nick and The Dirty Tricks” @ The Rhumb Line’s Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30-11:30pm 5.21.2015

Dave says,

I got a new group for ya this Thursday: Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks, minus one, that is, since I’ll be playing instead of their bassist. Apparently he’s suffering from a French foreign lesion. Wish him well! Mr. Nick is a well known harmonicat, although not around these parts, so cheer him on! He has the Q-Tip ability to ream out the smallest spaces in your cortical processes and will create a disturbance in your mind. Believe me!

He’s bringing along his longtime gootarist in the form of Mr. “Lonely” Gus Carlson, a fine player and vocalist as well as Mr.Rick Russo, on drums and vocals, too. I brought these cats in the night of last year’s Horrible’s Parade and they tore the joint apart! Come see for yourself!
And Saturday night, I’ll be down to Carlo’s on the loop, whooping it up with that Perry Combover Award winning vocalist and jongleur, Mr. John Keegan and the local faves: Madhouse. Yes, Carlo’s is open and we expect to have a wonderful evening, since we’ve been rehearsing all winter!  See you there!

Gang Of Thieves Friday May 22 @ MinglewoodAtLat43 ~ You do not want to miss this band…seriously!

gang of thieves mw friday

These legendary Vermont Rockers are bringing the funky
fury back to Gloucester this Friday! If you missed them last time, this is your chance!

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/Mzx9Q8sfpJI&#8221; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

High energy is the hallmark of Burlington, VT’s Gang of Thieves. Their sound and energy is a cross between Led Zeppelin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with a funky blast of Green Mountain soul thrown in the mix. The key to their appeal is the infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a hint of spiritual and political awareness, without any of preachy self-righteousness. With a live show that will leave you screaming and exhausted from your nose to your rump, these up and coming rock stars will leave you begging for more!

These Green Mountain rockers have won over diverse audiences coast-to-coast, opening for the likes of Skid Row on the one hand, and up-and-coming jam band Twiddle on the other. The Gang was also recently nominated for “Rock Act of the Year” by the 2013 New England Music Awards, and Best Funk Group by 7 Days “Seven Daysies” contest.

“Gang of Thieves, you’ve really done it this time. Soaring guitars,
early 90s grunge style vocals, Flea level basslines, and a mix of funk and rock to make a party a rager… you [gave] us Thunderfunk and it’s just another damn level.”
-John Powell, http://www.angelica-music.com

Check them out here: http://www.thegangofthieves.com/#about-1

This will be one of the most exciting shows you will see this month!
