Love Canon’s Bids Adieu to 2011 Next Wednesday

Posted in Love Canon, Rapture with tags , , , on November 23, 2011 by jeyon

“What?!? No New Year’s Eve show?” you ask. Yes, actually Love Canon is playing NYE. In Massachusetts though, opening for good buddy Josh Ritter. Incidentally, their very first gig was as a trio playing Ritter’s wedding 2 years ago. True story. LC are calling 2011 “done-ski” on WED. NOV. 30th (Magnus’ birthday!) at RAPTURE for FREE. They’re taking December, and possibly January, off to concentrate on recording an LP (tentatively called “Greatest Hits Vol. 1”), get their website up-and-running and learn a whole new batch of ’80s gems for ya for Oh Twelve.

LOVE CANON @ RAPTURE
21 + / FREE / 10 pm

We’ve got a couple great Bluegrass acts playing Charlottesville tonight. First off is The Whiskey Rebellion, who host a regular First Wednesday gig at South Street Brewery. If you don’t know TWR, they’re pretty righteous players, recently returned from a mini tour in Oregon where they filmed a DVD they’re getting set to release. Here’s the trailer:

Also up tonight is LOVE CANON‘S fiddler and Old School Freight Train member, NATE LEATH bringing a crack squad of pickers over to RAPTURE. Players include Love Canon bassist Darrell Muller, Jay Starling from Fredericksburg reggae band The Transmitters on dobro and guitarist Jared Pool — whose actually been borrowed from The Whiskey Rebellion (see above) to play this gig — on guitar. It’s shameless! These dudes are gonna be ripping bluegrass standards in addition to “dawg” tunes, ethereal bluegrass tunes pioneered by one mister David “Dawg” Grisman. In fact, here’s a pic of Nate Leath sharing the stage with Mr Grisman.

Both these gigs are FREE and both of them start at 10 PM.
