Last Minute Gig Alert: Roger Clyne @ The Beachland Tavern

Thanks to ATV pal Scott Banham for the heads up on this one!  If the combination of a frosty cerveza and the music of Roger Clyne sounds like a good time to you (and it should!), you'll want to nab yourself a ticket for the newly announced last minute Beachland show happening this upcoming Tuesday (3/1) IN THE TAVERN!

Normally, you'd find Clyne and his regular band of musical gypsies The Peacemakers in the larger Ballroom (for shows that often are packed to the gills), but Tuesday's show will be a more intimate affair with Clyne and fellow Peacemaker P.H. Naffah performing acoustically (ATV friend Jason Meyers will open up the show).  Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 day of show, but you're probably running a huge risk of a shutout if you wait that long.

The duo will barnstorm a smattering of cities starting with the Cleveland show on Tuesday, with stops in Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota (we're really starting to get cold now) prior to wrapping things up in Indianapolis on March 6th. I'm not sure what the exact reason is behind the dates (and hell, we ain't lookin' for an explanation), but the one thing that they all have in common is that it will give like minded individuals in each city the opportunity to come out and drink beer and enjoy some good old fashioned acoustic pickin' with a setlist that's sure to feature your favorites from both the Peacemakers catalog and ye olde Refreshments. Check out the complete run of tour dates here.

Clyne will be back on the road in April with the full band, celebrating the release of the latest Peacemakers opus Unida Cantina, which will be available on April 19th.  It's reasonable to guess that you'll probably hear at least a few of those new songs at the upcoming March dates. On top of that, each night is a guaranteed good time...the most fun you can have without actually being in Mexico!

Here's a recent live performance of "Maria," one of the tracks that will be featured on the upcoming album, recorded in January at the Music Fog studios in Steamboat Springs, CO.
