Still there's plenty of good music coming up. At the Cradle, Yo La Tengo Saturday Jan 23 is sold out (you can't have my ticket to that one either) but the Sunday show is still available. Alejandro Escovedo, who lived in the area for a while in the late 90s, early 00s, is back on Jan 27th. Down the road, our own Superchunk will play Mar 4th followed by Greg Brown the following night. Then there is a solo acoustic show from Citizen Cope (tix on sale this Friday the 14th) for an Apr 14th show.
At Local 506 Mandolin Orange plays Jan 22 followed by the wonderful, oddball Jonathan Richman who returns on Feb 25.
At the ArtsCenter you've got Solas on Jan 28 followed by Bettye LaVette the following night.
Okay, that's enough for now so I leave you with the Love Language doing sparxx on Wrightsville Beach under the pier....
