Back again for the first time…solo! We have the pleasure of getting to hang out with our good friend Scott Turek this week. Scott (formerly of Bazooka Zoo) comes to us this time around with a very special offering – sad, sad, sad songs on the acoustic guitar. Despite his playful and sunny exterior, inside this husk of a man is a brooding and tortured heart, bereft of hope. Just kidding…. there’s like ONE dance-y tune in here (but seriously, ladies and gents, someone hug this man!)
Scott does gift us with a great set of his own music, some planned for, some not, but all quite on point and mesmerizing. His voice oozes into your ears like smooth caramel, taking you along for the story, while his fingers dance on the strings, keeping the momentum going. This man is some serious songwriting and playing talent; enough that I question whether or not his soul has been left tied up at a crossroads somewhere. You’ll be able to catch him at the Midtown Art Walk stage at Statewide Lighting, on Virginia Street on June 28. You can also find him on his website.
Kim is still not with us this week, but I’ll do my best to keep up with the weekend roundup:
Continuing all weekend long, through Saturday, June 30, Merry War Theater is presenting The Taming of the Shrew on the steps of the Lear Theater at sundown.
Tonight June 21 has two great shows lined up for you:
At Shea’s is The Deadly Gallows, Sanderlings and Josiah Knight!
Also, at Clark Lane Mall you can catch Color TV, Marigold, Frankly Fictitious and Blunderbusst!
El Bowlritto 5 at the Skatehouse
Taipan, Contortion, Smooth Sailing at Jub Jub’s
The events just never stop people.
Thanks for listening.
