Jerry Lawson and The GrooveBarbers!

Now HERE’S a show that promises to be one to pay attention to!  Jerry Lawson (formerly of The Persuasions) along with Sean Altman (formerly of Rockapella) and the rest of The GrooveBarbers will be together on one stage.  Jerry and Sean are long time friends, and they’ve decided to sing together in the city that gave rise to both of their careers (New York City).  On Saturday, September 19th, at 8pm, they’ll be performing together at The Bitter End Club, where The Persuasions launched their career.  It’s a very small venue, only seating about 150 people, so this is almost guaranteed to be a sold out show.  The Bitter End (http://www.bitterend.com) is located at 147 Bleeker Street (of Simon and Garfunkel fame), right in the heart of The Village (New York’s infamous cultural region).  The best part?  Tickets are an incredibly cheap $25 each.  They could easily sell for twice that.  Do yourself a favor and call The Bitter End or go to their web site, and order tickets now….

Firedrill!’s new album is now available for preorder!

Boston based Firedrill! has just announced they are taking pre-orders for their new album, “…Sings Without Music, Vol. II”.  Already this promises to be a totally kicka** album.  In addition, there is a release party happening in Boston/Cambridge’s Johnny D’s.  If you’re within a 100-mile radius it’d be well worth your time to come on down.  I’ll be there, so come on up and say hi! (I’ll be the one wearing the Acapodcast shirt – unless someone else has bought one from the swag store on the left – then there might be two of us wearing Acapodcast shirts!)

Mic Outage

I recorded show #53, but had to throw it out. Turns out the fuzziness heard on #52 wasn’t just a result of a loose capsule in the Mic. I’ll be replacing the trusty microphone soon, and re-recording. I know I’m 2 weeks overdue already, and I really want to get this episode out while parts of it are still timely…

I promise, tons of good stuff in there, but I’m not going to make you listen to me while I sound like I’m on the wrong end of a tin can and string connection….
