This is it boys and squirrels. By my estimation, the upcoming three day weekend may very well be the last perfectly gorgeous stretch of days until springtime, so get out to your local shows (THERE ARE SO MANY) and soak it all in. You’ll thank me later.

The extremely popular Scottish singer-songwriter and musician lands in Buenos Aires for a show at the lush Teatro Ópera. The ever-talented Karina Vismara will be opening, and I can only imagine how glorious her inimitable voice will sound in that space.

I wrote about Once Mosquito once awhile back, and for good reason – that sixties reverb is damn well delicious and frontman Igna Parra’s voice is instantly pleasing to the ear. My band Fervors has the great fortune of playing with them this Thursday night, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
[Reprogrammed from last Thursday]: BLUE AND LONESOME, the new concert series for all things blues, bluegrass, country, folk and more, will be presenting a selection of 10 artists, including Leo Parra, Los Angry Zeta, and more. Good food, good beer, good music – what more could you possibly ask for on a Thursday night?
