A Little Night Music

If you’re not reading this blog from Tierra del Fuego and are up for a certifiably entertaining evening of fun music, head to the Alban Arts Center at 65 Olde Main St., in St. Albans at 7:30 tonight to hear the 1937 Flood, with Jim Snyder and myself as opening acts. The Flood are one eclectic string band, helmed by an irreverent, talented, wisecracking crew of players who really know their way around the more obscure and cool nooks and crannies of the American Songbook. And if you’ve never been to the Albans Arts and Conference Center, it’s a fine listening room auditorium that seats about 200 people. The video I did for the story above at the Charleston Gazette site depicts the exterior and interior of the space (which I wish we could lift up in its entirety and shift  to downtown Charleston, which needs an intimate auditorium like this.) Admission to the Bayer Crop Science/Colesmouth Concert series show is $10, students $5, under 14 free with adult ticket.

Musicians with followings, take note. You can rent the Alban on a 50-50 split for concerts and CD release events. That’s what my musical tribalmates in Option 22 will be doing for their much-anticipated 2nd CD, with a CD release show 7 p.m. May 29 at the Alban. And while we’re throwing out musical to-do list dates, make tracks to the Charleston debut of my new musical-theatrical venture, Third Eye Cabaret, with special guests Option 22, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., Saturday, May 22 at Taylor Books. There might be funny hats.
