The showcase featured four bands: Andrew Moore Trio, Harbour City Electric, The Thomas Oliver Band and Elston Gun. Today I will bring you Elston Gun, and some of their best songs. Working on the rest, who will be featured in the following posts.
The Blues night featured this time Darren Watson w/ Puba (aka Matt Swain) from OdESSA, Al Campbell and The Mighty Ramble, Random Russel – Man of mystery and Mercury Crowe performed The Blues of Jimi Hendrix.
And at an Elston Gun gig last month Seamus and Hayden presented their take on some Black Keys and White Stripes songs.
For today, well tomorrow as it is still Sunday night here, I have another reminder, wink wink, this WILL be happening every month: Thursday night is Blues Night at Bar Bodega again, and because it’s a school/work night we will be starting at 8pm.
Next up a review of last months Blues night, which was absolutely stunning! Thanks to EVERYONE who made it and contributed to a great night.
Second post and already/ again stuff that bothers and delays the process: I crashed the car and hurt my right arm. Fortunately nothing serious, but still painful and slow healing. As a result I’ve been able to do only a couple of things, first a short review of Bodegas’ Blues Night, a more detailed description of the individual acts still to come. And I’ll give you my thoughts on a new released CD, in tribute to Neu!, called ‘Brand Neu!‘ .
On top of that my video host has been having major problems and I had to go back to another one, accounting for the motley look in the video department from now on. Not to mention eating up my data allowance with unsuccessful uploads and wrecking my nerves in the process. Working on it, but haven’t found a reliable solution yet. Hopefully you will notice a difference once it is sorted.
Reminder: in Wellington the International Film Festival will start in about a week, and if all goes well, the next Bodega night will present the bluesey side of Led Zeppelin. WOOHOO!
