Tonight, Friday, the 16th, Brewer and Shipley will do an instore at Music Millennium before their show at Alberta Rose, with local lad, Jack McMahon opening ( and where I will be merching Jack's CD..) I used to go see these guys a lot when I lived in Kansas and they were always great!...and so much more than just one toke over the line...
Saturday, my friend, Anny Celsi will be doing another instore at Millennium promoting her new record, "January". Anny is from here, and used to act with Storefront before moving to LA with her then husband, Duane Jarvis. She has kept up her songwriting over the years and her son, Ivan, accompanies her on vocals, keys and trumpet.
Also on Saturday, from 10 AM to 8 PM, the Festival Romani will fill Sellwood Riverfront Park with Gypsy music from around the world. There is a suggested admission fee of $10, but from the line-up well worth it. There will also be an after-party at the Bossanova Ballroom, for more dancing and music.
And a musical theatre note: last weekend to catch "Dex Dixon, Paranormal Detective" at the Funhouse Lounge..music, laughs and cocktails...what's not to love?
