Situation Readers, it’s Friday once again, and we have another awesome trio of shows high on our list for this evening:
CHATHAM COUNTY LINE, The Situation’s ARTIST OF THE MONTH, perform at the intimate McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica at 8 pm. Check out our interview with them and enjoy tracks from their newest album, Sight & Sound.
Can’t get tickets for McCabe’s or just want a longer show? No problem! The spirit of Jerry Garcia will be celebrated as Melvin Seals & JGB Band goes on at 10 pm at The Mint. Seals, the mighty organist and longtime fixture with The Jerry Garcia Band, will be rocking the keys to some classic Dead and Garcia originals. This will be a packed house, so arrive early and be ready to dance.
And lastly, despite our roots being in Los Angeles, The Situation would be crazy not to plug a special festival happening on the other coast where bluegrass is alive and well. LA’s very own The Get Down Boys and our good friend Frank Fairfield play GREY FOX BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL in Oak Hill, New York. Located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, Grey Fox includes performances by Hot Rize, David Grisman, Punch Brothers, Infamous Stringdusters, and many more. Next week, Della Mae’s champion fiddler Kimber Ludiker gives us the scoop from the weekend back east.
From coast to coast, we wish you a happy Friday!
