Founding Fathers, Casual Encounters @ Blue Arrow Records

Tomorrow night, don’t be shy and visit our fine neighbors, Blue Arrow Records, as they throw a very special shindig.  Two of Cleveland’s great new bands–Casual Encounters and Founding Fathers–will grace the Blue Arrow stage.  Genre-defying musician Sam Goldberg will attend to DJ duties.

Casual Encounters features members of Exit Stencil Recordings’ Hot Cha Cha, Good Morning Valentine, and Poor Sailor (last we checked).  Founding Fathers also includes a stellar lineup, with John Kalman (Roué), John Neely (Tokyo Storm Warning), Stanton Thatcher (Tall Pines), and Carol Anne Schumacher (Tough and Lovely, Reigning Sound, Detroit Cobras)

 The fun starts at 6 pm. There’ll be food, beverages, and discounts on Blue Arrow’s amazing selection of records and collectibles!  And admission, dear reader, is FREE.

Since we’ve mentioned Good Morning Valentine in passing, we thought we’d hip to their very special upcoming motorcycle tour. That’s right: GMV frontman Joey Beltram and his cohorts Wendy Howell and Pat Slabaugh are hitting the Midwest and West Coast, Easy-Rider Style.  Here are the dates:
