SUN 8/30: Bloodshot Beer-B-Q

Bloodshot Records Beer-B-Q
at Middle East - Downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
$5 / 18+

Feat: Bobby Bare Jr, Graham Parker, Charlie Pickett, Ha Ha Tonka, Dead String Brothers, Justin Townes Earle

There may not be a better way to spend your Sunday afternoon. As much as it is an effort to hear the artists of Bloodshot Records, it's also simply a chance to hear so many good bands. (Most of the music has a bit of twang.)

If it was only Graham Parker, it'd be worth more than $5. I didn't confirm it, but the surprise artist is probably Justin Townes Earle (Steve's son, btw). He's on Bloodshot, and he's done other Beer-B-Q's in various cities.

Doors at 4pm, music starts around 5pm. Free food for the first 150 people.

Free sampler CDs, while supplies last.
