    10:00 pm - 2:00 am

The city’s acknowledged kings of the dance floor – The Mellotones – have a night off (and we’ve never had them on our stage), so we’ve got them booked for Friday, March 6th for a blow-out, maybe-Spring-is-coming bash. Show time will be 10 PM and I’m pretty sure there’ll be special guests AND it’s only […]

Ron Hawkins CD Release Show

  • Ron Hawkins
    March 27, 2015
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Ron Hawkins is, for my money, the best songwriter in the country. There, I said it. His body of work – from The Lowest of the Low, through The Rusty Nails, his solo work and what he’s now producing – stacks up against anything I’ve heard over the past two plus decades. His brand-spanking-new album […]
