Is there anyone who has churned out such stellar songwriting over many genres as prolifically as Steve Earle has over the past few decades? We think not. And yet many music fans are still unfamiliar with his tunes, save for a few notable movie placements.
That’s why we have Steve Earle night. The third annual will be Fri Oct 24, 9:30 sharp at the Sportsmens. And what a line up. Joining McCarthyzm will be Dee Adams, Leroy Townes Band, Shaky Stage and Ten Cent Howl, all hardcore troubadours in there own right. Be there.
McCarthyizm is happy to announce that after a couple month break, we are returning to the best club in town, the Sportsmens Tavern. AND, our monthly residency night has changed to the FIRST Thursday of the month (just when you were getting used the 2nd Thursday, right?). So the return date, on our new night, is Thursday October 2. It will probably be the last show of the year that the upstairs outdoor patio will be open, so you can join us and still enjoy the quickly waning summer-like conditions. See y’all there.
The unofficial end of summer is here folks – the 14th annual Niagara County Celtic Heritage Festival and Highland Games is this weekend, Sat Sept 13 & Sun Sept 14! This amazing event up in Olcott, NY, on the beautiful banks of Lake Ontario, really does have something for everyone. There’s the Clan Village, the Highland feats of strength and the unique food and drinks, of course. But there’s also many special events including pony rides for the kids, a dog agility demo, a dart tournament, a magic show, rugby games and much more.
Oh yeah and music; lots of great music all day and into the night on three stages. McCarthyizm is suitably stoked to play the Saturday night Ceilidh on the main Pavilion Stage from 5:30 – 7:30 followed by the always entertaining and rocking Glengarry Bhoys.
