Howdy, folks! So glad that so many of you enjoyed the last edition, and I appreciate the feedback. It's shaping up to be another big weekend of music with lots of St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
Today, Sunday, March 12, Bethany Grace Hicks will be performing an acoustic set at Porterdale Bar and Grill at 3 p.m. This Famous by February band member always puts on a great show.
Harrison Dills Trio live at The Listening Room at Irish Bred Pub, Thursday, March 16, 7 p.m.
This is a super group of sorts as it is a merging of Harley Dills of Sanctified Revival and Campbell Harrison of The Bucket Shot Revival, two of the best groups in our area. Rounding out the trio is Owen Dills. Harley and Campbell are both superb songwriters as well as outstanding singers and guitar players and have developed a musical kinship over the last several months. This should be a really great night!
The Psycho Devilles live at The Speakeasy, Porterdale, Friday, March 17, 8 p.m.
This Rockabilly group based out of Atlanta was formed in 2002, has released six albums during that time, and has thousands of fans all over the southeast. Fronted by Walt "Hot Rod" Richards, this power trio incorporates upright bass, gnarly guitar work, and punk-infused drumming to make for a high energy sound. Add to that their impressive stage presence and you've got yourself one heck of a show!
Red Dirt Mountain live at Porterdale Bar & Grill, Friday, March 17
These "purveyors of Southern Sludge" will once again be back at the PB&G and will once again have local six stringer Buddy Krause sitting in with them. Influenced by groups like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Blackberry Smoke, these guys bring some high-octane, heavy rock. A mix of covers and some very impressive originals, these guys are just great. There will be lots of St. Patrick's Day festivities going on as well.
Gold Dust live at Lahrceny Tavern, Porterdale, Saturday, March 18, 8 p.m.
Bear Adams and company are bringing their fun mix of Classic Country, Rock, Oldies, and Blues down Highway 81 for a show at the venue formerly known as The Social House. This four-piece band is tight; they always put on a memorable show. And the Lahrceny crowd will be doing a St. Patrick's Day blowout on Friday night.
St. Patrick's Day Bash at Irish Bred Pub, Friday and Saturday, all day.
A veritable bonanza of St. Patrick celebrations will be going on this weekend including music both upstairs and down. Friday will feature Irish music groups like Whiskey & Cream and Keltic Kudzu. Saturday will see Whiskey & Cream again, along with Sans Abi, Rusty Tate, and Newton's own, Johnny Roquemore. Lots of food specials and other things going on. Should be a lot of fun.
