This Saturday night (December 31st), I’ll be camping out at Sally O’Brien’s in Union Square in Somerville, MA and playing two separate shows to celebrate the new year.
First, from 6 pm til 9 pm I’ll be playing with Frank Drake (guitar), Jimmy Ryan (mandolin), Bob Metzger (pedal steel), and Ariel Bernstein (drums). I’ve played with Frank once before at Sally O’Brien’s and it was really fun — a mix of country, bluegrass, western swing, and jazz standards.
Conveniently enough (and surprisingly booked independently), I’m also playing the late show with the Kristen Ford Band. Opening for us at 9 pm will be Slowdim, and we’ll be playing around 10:30 or 11 pm until 2012… This show will be much more rock/pop oriented, and Kristen’s having us learn a whole bunch of great covers for everyone to sing and dance along to.
The whole night is $10 for all this music, plus free champagne at midnight — come on down!
