The Green Parrot bar, 601 Whitehead Street. Playing two shows tonight (at 5:30 and 10:00pm) Albert Castiglia will bring his bluesy rock n’ roll to our little island for what promises to be a crowd-stopper of a show. Having toured with rock gods such as ZZ Top and Elvin Bishop, Castiglia is a Florida native who was voted “Best Blues Guitarist” by New Times magazine. Get there early for a spot near the front!
The Hog’s Breath Saloon, 400 Front Street. Stellar opening acts like Kenny & George Victory (on stage from 1pm – 5pm) and the gorgeous Jessie Brown Trio (5:30pm – 9:30pm) will get the crowd riled up and ready to dance, but the act we’re most looking forward to is John Nemeth, a veritable blues prodigy whose swagger-drenched, toe-tapping music seems pulled from another era. A rising star with an unstoppable voice, Nemeth’s supernatural blend of retro-modern blues and soul music will enchant purists and hipsters alike. Bring your friends and we’ll see you there!
