Two Big CD Release Events, WTF Fundraiser and Funky Mondays Highlight March Gigs
Things are heating up atmospherically and musically as we get into March and there are two CD release events that are noteworthy.
Lost Lakes will release their self-titled debut this Thursday, March 9th at the High Noon Saloon starting at 8pm. Boom Forest will support. Lost Lakes is a collaboration between Corey Mathew Hart and Paul Mitch. The album has gotten a lot of attention in the last week with reviews and mentions in nearly every music source, including ours. Read the review here.
On Sunday, March 12th the Wurst Times Festival will hold a fundraiser for its Memorial Day weekend event. This event is also at the High Noon at 6:30 pm. All proceeds from the event go to cover the operating expenses of the festival such as sound gear for the outdoor stage, generator rental, printing etc. The organizers hope to raise between $2K-$3K to cover the operating expenses of the Wurst Times VII Festival on May 27th. On the bill for March 12th are Katie Scullin, Major Vistas, Vets with Frets ( Feturing Madsion area veterans ), Jason Moon and Kelsey Miles.
Shawndell Marks will host her CD release on Sunday, March 19th, also at the High Noon. This is an afternoon presentation starting at 1:30pm. Support is provided by the Lower 5th, Lo Marie, Sam Ness and Derek Remnarace. Marks has just released her third recording, Broken Dam, and it’s a terrific album. Read the review here.
And don’t forget Funky Mondays at the High Noon on Monday, March 20th. The event starts at 6pm and runs until 10pm so you can still get your beauty sleep. The ongoing series honors the late, great Clyde Stubblefield and a portion of the proceeds go toward the MAMA Clyde Stubblefield Scholarship Fund. Joey Banks leads the all-star jam which is a city favorite. Come early or stand in line.
