Millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.-Ertz

November 16, 2008

It’s raining and grey outside today…the sort of day that many people stay home, make some soup, maybe open up a bottle of wine, and pop in a movie.  Sure enough, I’ll be doing some of that later myself.  In the meantime, there are lots of things going on this weekend that I put out there the post before last…make sure you check out some of them!  But now, it’s time to jump in and let you in on what’s coming up for the coming week!

When I hear music…

…it makes me dance (and it ends up looking like Elaine from Seinfeld).  Yes, I was into that whole dance music thing in the ’80’s.  I’ve matured, and so has my taste in music.  I’m lucky enough to live in an area where the arts and music scene is hopping, and locals will often text me to let me know who is playing where (to which I text back asking if they’d like me to meet them for a beer…yes, life is good!)  Anyhow, we’ve got some great gigs coming up this week, starting with Monday…a very special Live in the Lobby Unlabeled at the Patchogue Theatre-featuring The Sun Gets Down, Airdate, and The Turn.  $10 gets you in.

Speaking of the Patchogue Theatre…on the 16th Sarah Wolfson, Soprano will be performing.  $15 tix available at the door.

Blues poet Ray Bonneville will be at University Cafe on November 23.  Advance tickets are $15, remaining tickets will be $20 at the door.

University Cafe will also be hosting the Long Island Acoustic Tour on November 21st.  $3 not only gets you in, but is good towards purchasing any of the artists’ CD’s.

As mentioned in a previous post, the Bellport Songwriter Series will be hosting Miles to Dayton this week…$5 tix at the door, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!  This incredible band will be taking a break to catch up with life so this will be their last gig for a while!

Another show not to miss is the Homegrown String Band playing at the Grey Horse Tavern on November 22.

Cathy Kreger will be performing at Elijah Churchill’s on November 22nd.

Paul Helou will be playing at Woodsongs at the Movies…$12 tix.

David Roth will be at Our Times Coffeehouse on November 21…$15 at the door.  (Ladies, even if you aren’t into acoustic music…this is worth going to see…this guy is HOT!  Nothing wrong with some eye candy once in a while!)

This one is a bit down the road, but is a must-see for a good cause!  The Peacesmiths are holding a fundraiser featuring some great acts like Walt Sargent and Suzanne Ernst…$15 gets you in!

Putting the art before the horse…

Yes, I did that on purpose!  However, what I did NOT do on purpose was hook the wrong link onto Gallery 4222’s featured artist…so here, without further ado, is the correct info for Roberto Perinuzzi.

The Gallery at Bald Hill is exhibiting a portrait show I had the good fortune of getting to see this past Wednesday.  Some of the work is just incredible…

Hurry before it’s gone!  Poquott-A Photographic Journey closes on the 23rd!

Gallery North is hosting a Holiday Art show…there’s some really great things featured on the website…and most items are available for purchase!

Also ending this week is bjspoke’s exhibit Sake Cups…sounds boring, but is actually very cool!

One more that is ending this week is the Members’ Show at Mill Pond House

And I want to get it out there that a local treasure is in danger of closing!  The Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport may close by EARLY NEXT YEAR if it does not get help!  Money is running out, and donations in these tough times have not been sufficient to support the museum.  Now, most of us are not wealthy…but make an effort to save a really interesting place, either by stopping in for a visit (make sure you go see the whale shark, the library, and take the mansion tour!) or writing to your legislator.

All for now…I’ll be back in a few days with dining deals and more great things to do.  Have an event or gig that should be here?  Email me at!
