Skiing consists of wearing $3,000 worth of clothes and equipment and driving 200 miles in the snow in order to stand around at a bar and drink.-O’Rourke

March 2, 2009

I am snowbound today, and busy IM-ing my friends on Facebook, waiting for some call backs from neighbors to see if they want to strap on their skis…grab the dogs…and have “dogsled races” (don’t ask, it started as a drunken lark back in 2001), and just remembered–hey, it’s Monday!  I have additional gigs to add to last Saturday’s post!


This Thursday, the Patchogue Theatre gets its Irish on with a very special Live in the Lobby with Bangers and Mash and opener Johnny Cuomo!  $10 door, and say hello to me as I take your money!

On Wednesday, Acoustic Long Island features performances by Stephanie Nilles and Amy Crawford and The Electric, Deepwells Mansion. FREE.

Stuart Markus,  member of Gathering Time, plays solo acoustic at Fiore this Wednesday as well.  Hey, Stuart, if you ever read this…since you’re a tall ship historian, we should chat sometime…I’m a shipwreck buff!

Talking about tall ships, I’m waiting for Stout to play locally again!

Also on Wednesday, Buddy Merriam and Back Roads will be bringing you the best of LI bluegrass at the Checkmate Inn.  On Friday, Free Grass Union will be at the Grey Horse Tavern.

Thursday is open mic nite at two great venues–Toomey’s Tavern in Amityville, and Strings and Things at Mills Pond House!

An open mic picking up steam is the Island Songwriters Showcase at Border’s, Syosset. 8PM this Friday.  Those wishing to perform must sign-up with Vinny Crici at 7:30PM.

PeaceSmiths Topical, A-Typical, Folk Music, Poetry and Whatever Coffeehouse features Rorie Kelly plus an open mic, Friday 8PM.  $7 door.

All for now…check back soon for more updates!
