Time to get a little quiet for a few days ... maybe even a week or so ... there'll still be music out and about, but I'll just say celebrate the holidays (or not) as is your tradition ... and enjoy!
But if you're in the mood for live music, here's a few shows tonight you might consider ...
Nick Jaina and friends have been keeping things happy and bright this month at the Laurelthirst Wednesday happy hour shows ... still two more chances to check it out before the end of the year ... 6 pm, no cover
Little Sue does her popular Wednesday happy hour show at Biddy McGraw's ... 6 pm, no cover
The Thad Beckman Trio will be at O'Connors in Multnomah Village ... 7 pm, $5
Swing Papillion is at the Press Club ... 8:30 pm, no cover
John Koonce and One More Mile are out on the west side at the Rock Creek Tavern ... 9 pm, no cover
Opps . . . one more ... Norman Sylvester/Lloyd Jones at the 915 Club(915 SW 2nd Ave - map)
Norman Sylvester and Lloyd Jones will get together again for a, "New Millenium" blues and funky R&B "Downtown Dance Party"! Check it out! ... 8 pm, $??
I may post a few end of the year reflections (unless I decide it's just useless self-indulgent blather ... wait, of course it is - hmmm ... okay maybe I won't post) ... good chance there won't be recommendations coming until the new year, unless something jumps up that I have to get out there.
So in case this is it for a while, enjoy your week and see ya in 2010 ... and out supporting live music!
