Bob Dylan & John Mellencamp bring one of the biggest shows of the summer to Edgefield tonight and tomorrow ... tonight sold out, but still tickets for tomorrow ... 6 PM, $80
Blue Cranes do a CD release show at the Alberta Rose Theater (a perfect venue to hear this band!) to celebrate the upcoming release of Observatories and latest tour, their well received new recording. Good story here on Oregon Music News ... 9 PM, $12
A drummer with broken bones forced the cancellation of the Kolvane gig tonight at the Trails End, so Kolvane keyboard player Steve Kerin stepped in with a band for tonight that includes guitarist Bob Shoemaker and Franco Paletta on harmonica ... should be a lot of fun ... 9 PM, $6
Brethren Thread with special guest Scott Pemberton will be at the Spare Room. This band doesn't play many performances, but they are worth the wait ... very adventurous and original ... 9:30 PM, no cover
Linda Hornbuckle and Soul Vaccination are at
Philly's Phunkestra will funk things up at the Goodfoot ... 9 PM, $??
Lewi Longmire Band, Quiet Life, and The Dimes are doing 2 sets each outside at Mississippi Studios from 2 - 8 PM ... and it's free.
John Hiatt and the Combo will at the Aladdin. John is touring to support his latest CD, The Open Road. One of my very favorite artists for a long time, John's new recording has been getting a lot of listening - some of his best work in a body of great work. He's got a crack band (Doug Lancio on guitar, Patrick O'Hearn on bass and long-time drummer Kenneth Blevins) with whom he also did the recording. Ashleigh Flynn will open .... 8 PM, $60 (yeah, a bit pricey)
