FRIDAY – Night on The Town
Another Friday night to see live music! But first let’s stop off at Doc’s Restaurant and Sport Lounge where today’s drinks special is $4 Long Islands, Tokyo Tea, Black Opals, and AMF’s. A long tall cool one (or two, maybe three… why wait, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere) is just the ticket to kick-off the weekend!
Fresh from Buffalo Bandstand Band Competition at the Buffalo Gap in Portland where they took first place and before heading back up to participate in this year’s PDX Pop Now! music festival, The Water Tower Bucket Boys are playing at Sam Bond’s Garage tonight at 9pm with Bend’s own Moon Mountain Ramblers. After 5 years on the road, 4 albums under their belt and multiple international tours, the Water Tower Bucket Boys have been brewing up a storm in the folk music world. The boys have collaborated live with members of bands like Frank Turner, Kitty Daisy and Lewis, the Red Stick Ramblers, and the Foghorn Stringband and shared the stage with acts like Old Crow Medicine Show, Mumford and Sons, Wilco, Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three, and Woody Pines. They have toured extensively in both the USA and abroad, and performed live on the BBC, NPR, and RTE. Their all original sound is infectious and has spread far and wide to audiences of all ages and walks of life.
But alas, my driver has inexplicably taken night off and somehow I’ve already been shanghaied to Lebanon, where the Seadog Nights and Gypsy Carnival is going on. I wonder if my driver had anything to do with this??? Lord help me I’m not sold as a slave and auctioned off!
