Local Lansing folk will probably be hip to this now, but GTG is more-or-less booking and promoting the majority of the music at The Avenue Cafe these days. Here’s what we’ve got for the whole month of August:
That’s a good run there, eh? We’ve got the first full-length show by The Wild Honey Collective, the first public Lansing shows from Cavalcade and The Plurals in at least 18 months, a record release by the Cartridge Family(?!?!??), GTG Fest familiars like The Ryne Experience, LVRS, and Marsha, Mike Reed from Small Brown Bike… great stuff all around!
Shows are getting to be a little more commonplace – on top of the above listed we’ve got The Plurals playing Taste of Michigan City (Michigan City, IN) the afternoon of August 7, The Wild Honey Collective play from 5-9 at the Beer Garden at Horrocks Farm Market in Lansing on August 21 as well as an afternoon slot at Sundried Music Fest in Mason on August 28, and then The Stick Arounds take the Horrocks stage themselves on August 28 too. All of these events are free and promise great times. We need ’em! Stay safe out there everyone, masks are still a good thing!
The Soods did it again! Following up 2020’s excellent Ornaments of Affection, A Ray Rewired Volume 1 features 7 bursts of dreamy, jangly goodness. In addition to project mastermind Jason Roy and regular members Steven Meltzer, Chris Coble, Matt Ten Clay, Shane Tripp, and Haleigh Potter, A Ray Rewired features Ryne Clarke (The Ryne Experience) and Timmy Rodriguez (Wild Honey, Drinking Mercury, Sleeping, etc) among others.
