All You Need To Know About Saturday

So, about Saturday, July 11, 2015 …

If you haven’t heard by now, you might be under a rock (especially if you’re reading this site, because this site has been all 7/11, all the time for a bit now). But just in case that rock has stood between you and the outside world, let’s get the specifics out of the way. Saturday night at 200 East Patrick St. (or 200 East, or Frederick Arthouse, or Playlist Funhouse, depending on who you talk to), Seaknuckle is going to release their first-ever LP, “Get Over It.” That will be commemorated with a show featuring Rozwell Kid and Silent Old Mtns., who used to be broken up, but will now be all types of back together for this momentous occasion.

Video Of The Day: Silent Old Mtns. Performing ‘Old Man’

You must know all about Saturday by now, right? We’ll have a post with the full low-down on everything in a few hours (hopefully), but for now, check out the young men in Silent Old Mtns. performing “Old Man” from a few years ago. They were gone for a little while, but Saturday? 200 E. Patrick St.? They’re reuniting, like the kind dudes they are, and they are going to blow the roof off this brand new music venue downtown. You’ll be there, right? Fingers crossed.

Frederick Playlist Presents … Seaknuckle

Holy Moses, do we have something fun here. The lovely young men in Seaknuckle dropped by our super-secret Frederick Playlist offices recently to play two acoustic versions of their songs “Lost In The Shade” (above) and “Love” (below). The former is a brand new song you can find on their upcoming record, “Get Over It,” which will be released on Saturday at 200 E. Patrick St. in downtown Frederick. It’s the first Frederick Playlist show. History in the making, as Gorilla Monsoon would say. There will be a beer pong tournament with tons of prizes. Silent Old Mtns. will reunite. And then Rozwell Kid will rock faces and melt body parts.

You best believe we’re going to be hitting the Seaknuckle, Silent Old Mtns. and Rozwell Kid stuff hard this week. Saturday night will be historic! To commemorate as much, here’s a photo of Seaknuckle’s merchandise at Cafe Nola last year. And oh, you best believe that the band will have some merch on hand Saturday … when they release their first-ever LP at 200 E. Patrick St.! The excitement. It’s nuts.

The Weekend Playlist: 07/02/15

… And after being preempted for a week, we’re back. And, oh boy are we back! It’s been a week, that’s for sure. We premiered a brand new Frederick Playlist Presents … session with Silent Old Mtns. We talked with kids act Here Comes Trouble. We world premiered a music video from Seaknuckle. And, most importantly, we posted a photo of Alive@Five. Segue. Tonight, it appears as though Carroll Creek will be hippin’ and hoppin’ with Jem. Will you check it out? Because you should. Elsewhere this weekend … well, it’s the Fourth Of July! Duh. There’s a whole slew of things going down at Baker Park pretty much all day Saturday, and that includes (but is not limited to) a Tom Petty tribute band. So, there’s that. Time Columns and Kabob-O-Taj (above) probably hold the honor of the coolest show going down this weekend when they take the Cafe Nola stage tomorrow night. Levi Stephens is coming back to Bushwaller’s. There is the usual slate of open mics. Southern Charm is heading back to Champion Billiards. Jack Funk, who are some pretty great dudes, will be funking Olde Towne Tavern up until the Sunday morning sun rises (or something like that). And then, of course, Rated R, who are celebrating the Fourth of July at the Blue Sky. T-minus one week until we officially open the doors to 200 E. Patrick St. and allow the music and the art to wash over this great town for a few months. Are you excited? We are. In the meantime (and in between time) … viva la America!

Frederick Playlist Presents … Silent Old Mtns.

Oh, boy, do we have a treat. You’ve heard all about Saturday, July 11, right? Seaknuckle CD release show. Rozwell Kid rocking and rolling. And, of course. Silent Old Mtns. reuniting and getting back to their day job of ruling the world. We recently had a couple of those dudes into our super-secret Frederick Playlist Presents … studios and they were kind enough to perform two songs. Above is “Mine To Give.” Below is “The Most Logical Thing.” As always, a huge thank you to Mr. Graham Cullen for helping out.

Video Of The Day: Rozwell Kid’s ‘Kangaroo Pocket’

What a beautiful sunny and warm Thursday before the Fourth Of July! Oh, wait. It’s not? OK. Well, either way, check out this video of Rozwell Kid’s ‘Kangaroo Pocket.” We’ve been playing it on The Local Playlist each week on WSHC (listen online tomorrow at 1!). More importantly, though, Rozwell Kid will be playing at 200 E. Patrick St. in downtown Frederick as we open a brand new concert facility (or, as it’s unofficially known, the Playlist Funhouse) next Saturday, July 11. There’s going to be beer pong. There’s going to be fun. There’s going to be Rozwell Kid. We’ll be back in a few hours with some goodies. You’ll want to see what’s up.

Jeff Cosgrove: ‘Conversations With Owls’

JC

It’s just so hard to label Jeff Cosgrove a drummer. It feels unfair. As he proved with last year’s fantastic “Alternating Current,” the guy reaches so far beyond the parameters of mere beats and time signatures and groove that calling him a drummer is barely the beginning. He brings so much more. A wandering mind. A musical taste. An improvised approach. An unwavering fearlessness. Giving his recordings a listen means something far more than entertainment; it means a journey.

That’s probably why his most recent set, “Conversations With Owls,” feels like the perfect companion piece to the drummer’s aforementioned “Alternating Current,” 2014’s three-song set that featured an opening track doubling as a master class in improvisation, it running for nearly 40 minutes. That same excitement and complexity is here; it’s just toned down enough to make the end result seem more welcoming than its predecessor.

Photo Of The Day: Brooks Long

Brooks

Today’s photo features Brooks Long performing at the First Friday at The Park West Bazaar in Baltimore last month (yes, today means it’s July now). Even if he doesn’t return emails or Twitter messages about possible bookings, we still love us some Brooks Long, so this photo makes us happy. For those wondering, they will be in Manassas on July 7. Get hip. Photo courtesy of Cassandra Mullinix. For more of her photos, visit https://www.facebook.com/bucketofrock.

A Q&A With Here Comes Trouble

Well, here’s something different. The Summerfest Family Theatre. Do you know what we’re talking about? On Thursdays in June, July and August, events aimed at kids will go down in the Baker Park Bandshell. It’s free. It’s fun. It’s for the family. Up next is a set from area kids-act Here Comes Trouble on July 9. We recently caught up with Kelly Donohue and Jon Babu, who also happen to be lawyers, about their latest record, “Goo On My Shoe,” what it’s like to juggle two careers, and what lawyer-y things they can apply to being in a band. There’s a lot of interesting stuff in here, friends. Have a look:
