The Weekend in Music

Ah yes, another weekend looms, and, as is on the horizon. 

Plenty for you to check out on the local music scene, so don't even think about telling me you're bored!

Ken's Pick o' the Week #1: Music Friday
Since this is the third weekend of the month we have Music Friday in Lancaster. Lot's of great stuff around town. If I am able to make it down, I'll most likely be hanging at my usual spot, Building Character, where the Main Street Mystics will be belting out their jazzy sounds with my buddy Randy Bucksner on sax. 

Other highlights from Music Friday include a nice lineup at the Ad Lib Cafe hosted by Music For Everyone. Meanwhile talented young singer/songwriter Jordan Rast will be playing at Carmen & David's Creamery on Prince Street. (Haven't eaten their yet but have heard rave reviews from friends!). Meanwhile, The Cultivators will be at the Lancaster Dispensing Company, while The Reese Project plays at the Lancaster Arts Hotel

And the biggest show of the night is over at the Chameleon, featuring Lovedrug, along with York-based Kingsfoil.

You can get a full lineup for Music Friday over at Downtown Lancaster.

Ken's Pick o' the Week #2:
If you've been wondering where The Sleeping World has been, they've been holed up in a rehearsal space, breaking in a new line-up that I hear is going to be amazing. While the new version of the band won't be ready until April, Jessica Smucker will be performing with Jeff Bryson of the Vinegar Creek Constituency on Sunday, February 22nd at the Chestnut Hill Cafe in Lancaster. They'll be doing acoustic versions of songs from both of their bands, as well as some pretty cool covers. 

And now here's the rest of the weekend lineup throughout Central PA. Not exhaustive, but a good slice of what's going on.

Thursday, February 19th
XPN Welcomes the Neville Brothers & Dr. John to the American Music Theatre in Lancaster
The Sketties at Quips Pub in Lancaster

Friday, February 20th

And if you want to check out what else is going on in the area, or at your favorite haunt, check out the calendars at Fly Magazine, Spotobe, or PennLive, or my friend Sara Bozich's blog.
