We are bringing our hero Baby Gramps to Asheville next week. We have set up four distinct opportunities for you to see him perform:
Friday, June 8, 7 pm – The ArToREtuM in Candler
Saturday, June 9, 8 pm – Static Age on Lexington Ave.
with the Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks
Sunday, June 10, 7 pm & 9 pm – On the LaZoom Bus
Tuesday, June 12, 9 pm – Jack of the Wood with Mad Tea!
Seattle’s one and only Baby Gramps is a performer with a style so distinctive you’ll never forget it. He’s been called “The Salvadore Dali of Folk Music.” He plays acoustic antique resonator National Steel guitars, and sings his own unique arrangements of rags, jazz, & blues songs from the 20′s & 30′s, folksongs, and many originals with wordplay, humor, and throat singing. Don’t miss a chance to see him, Asheville!
Mad Tea is making our overdue return to Charlotte, NC this Friday, May 25. We’ll be playing all night (starting at 10 pm) at the Thomas Street Tavern. Queen City friends, I hope you kick off your holiday weekend with us.
We’ll be joining our friend Secret Agent 23 Skidoo this Sunday at 2 pm at the Orange Peel in Asheville for the CD release party of his new record, “Make Believers.” We’re on two tracks of the album, which is terrific.
The video we made for “Rain Remember” is going to be shown as part of Music Video Asheville, a cool annual event that showcases local filmmakers and musicians.
We’re stoked to get our home made video (that we made for a home-recorded song) on the big screen!
Here’s a photo of us taken by Michael Gordon (aka “Flash”) at the Meltdown Vintage Motorcycle Show. It was a blast.
