Night on the Town


FRIDAY   Night on the Town

Its the end to a very long week.  Hooray!  With a brand new driver on board tonight we’re going to poke around Eugene and see what we can hear tonight.  I’m really not that upset that I’m not going to the Oregon Jamboree this year, which starts this weekend.  I like country music, just like I like all music, but just don’t want to be knee-deep in fans in the middle of downtown Sweet Home… “not that there’s anything the matter with that.”

Tonight is going to be an easy night.  There is plenty of good music to see and with a quick diversion away from downtown earlier in the evening, most of tonight will be spent at two places hearing some genuinely good, well-crafted music.

The Thoughts

Thankfully at Luckey’s they have a kick-ass drink special tonight of $2 Jameson & Crater Lake Vodka going from when the music is supposed to start at 10pm and going till midnight, and $2 Jameson shots from 10-11pm.  These will go over perfectly for tonight’s entertainment. We’ll start here tonight actually as the band The Thoughts are playing along with The Last DragsThe Last Drags, rock/folk/jazz band focusing on vocal harmonies in their original songs.  Both bands write thought provoking Introspective and intimate songs.

Ash Reiter

Before heading over to Sam Bond’s Garage, we’re gonna sneak quietly over to the Black Forrest to hear Ash Reiter‘s set.  Her voice is really something to hear.  She’s on the same bill with Stein and Orion.

Sam Bond’s has a pretty good rock line up tonight with Moniker, Dirty Wink, Gravity Research Project.  I like GRP because they are rather “soulful” with “ripping instrumental solos and deep grooves.”  Think jazz, reggae, funk with a bit of Afro pop.  Don’t worry, you’ll be dancing too.

I think we’ll have fun tonight.  I might just wear my genuine Montana purchased cowboy boots after all…”not that there’s anything the matter with that!

I will see you out there!
