— One of my favorite local groups, Lawson and Disorder, has a rare doubleheader going this evening. They’ll play a one-hour set of originals and a few covers at Puirseil’s Irish Pub on Sixth Street in Lewisburg from 7-8 p.m., then pack up and hustle on over to the King Street Coffeehouse in Northumberland, where they are the third act of the evening.
I’ve been privileged to hear the final mastering of their long-anticipated album, “Too Old to Start at the Bottom,” and it’s a keeper.
Lots going tonight. Jim Wetzel and Friends are at McGuigan’s Public House in Sunbury from 6:30-8:30, and as mentioned above, the King Street Coffeehouse is open, with music starting at 7 p.m. Featured at the 253 Front St. venue are Eric Sundberg and Antonio Andrade, along with Lawson and Disorder.
Also tonight, Ricky and Harv are holding down the fort at the Scarlet D on Chestnut Street in Mifflinburg from 8-11 p.m., and the Ann Kerstetter Trio, with Ann on vocals, Bryan Noaker on guitars, Bill Stetz on the bass and John Sweeney on the harmonica, are at the Berwick Brewery from 7-11 p.m.
The Dave Miller Band will perform at 6 p.m. Friday at The New Mountain Tavern in Montgomery. There is no cover.
The Blind Chitlin Kahunas will be doing their power blues and funk thing at The Links at Buckhorn from 8-11 p.m.
The Generoo Organization is holding two evenings of great music they call “Steppin’ Out: An Evening of Love Songs” tonight and Sunday. Tonight's show is at Shade Mountain Winery at 7 p.m., and the Sunday show is at the Paxtonville United Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Show tickets include lots of great music from a number of talented folks from the region and light refreshments. Call 541-3795 for tickets and more information.
