January blues got you down? Haven't seen live music for a while? Dying to spend a night in Roxborough? Enjoy the occasional libation with Pat Feeney? If you even answered ANY of those questions, come on out this Wednesday (1/14) to the brand new and comfortably cozy confines of Roxborough's Blinkin Lincoln for a night of free music, free music trivia, free giveaways and beer (alas, not free). It's the debut of Main Street Music Night at The Blinkin Lincoln!
The music starts at 9:30 with power pop maestro Frank Brown doing an acoustic set sure to thrill fans of The Replacements, Cheap Trick and NRBQ. Frank was the guiding light behind Philly favorites Flight of Mavis and Buzz Zeemer. God damn those bands had some great songs. And you can still purchase all their cds (plus Frank's sparkling 2005 solo cd) at CD Baby (cdbaby.com). Get 'em before they're gone.
Frank Brown - "She Just Wants To Be Loved"
Buzz Zeemer - "Crush"
Next up (around 10:30) is British roots rock troubadour James Maddock, whom you might recognize as the leader of Wood (Songs From Stamford Hill), whose "Stay You" was a staple on AAA radio and was featured on the Top 10 album Songs From Dawson's Creek. Maddock has been busy recording a new record (due later this year) and will appear with keyboardist and Ryko signee Leslie Mendelson. Maddock's soulful, craggy voice and heart-on-his-sleeve songwriting will make this intimate appearance one not to be missed.
Wood - "Stay You"
James Maddock - "Chance" (demo)
So come on out, hoist a few and show your E-A-G-L-E-S spirit!
