Musical weekend plans

Tonight (that's Friday, Oct. 16), Jo Serrapere is having her final CD release party for her new disk Love Going South at the Cadieux Cafe in Detroit. I have this CD and it's maybe the best local CD I own; the production is outstanding and the songs are finely honed works of art, performed by a group of Ann Arbor and Detroit's best musicians. She'll be performing with her band the Willie Dunns.

The Cadieux Cafe is a great place to see local music. You may also have seen it on the Food Network show No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain; video clips are displayed on the Cadieux's website.

Saturday night (Oct. 17), Mama's Coffeehouse (at the Birmingham Unitarian Church) is hosting a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, which will be kind of a commemoration of two area musicians who passed away recently, Denise Marie Stein and Pamela Campau. The musical guests include Stewart Francke, Josh White Jr, Matt Watroba and Floyd King & the Bushwackers (Denise played with the Bushwackers). I think the place will be packed, and for a good reason too.

Sorry to say I'll miss both shows. I'm taking a needed rest this evening, as I spent yesterday and today freezing my nether regions off on a boom truck at our dental school. And tomorrow is a musical conflict - AJ's is presenting certificates to the folks who participated in the Assembly Line Concert earlier this year. Since I highly doubt the individual names are going to appear in a Guinness World Records book (and work at the venue to boot), I figured I should be there.

Of course, I'm not sure who scheduled which of the Saturday events first.. but only one of the two IS known for booking eccentricities! ;-

"booking eccentricities," heh heh heh ... well, Mama's would've been booked for something tomorrow night anyway, probably (they're usually the 3rd Saturday of the month). I think that it became a benefit relatively recently, though I could be wrong about that.

In any event, have fun! And have some recuperation first. Brrr.
