The Bourgeois Residency

Friday night was the first show in a series of shows called The Bourgeois Residency at The Elevens in Northampton, MA.  Rub Wrongways recording artist, Jason Bourgeois, is putting together and hosting these events.  All of them begin at 7:00 and are FREE.
  • April 16, 2010 - "Rock Show" - music from Death to New England & the Claudia Malibu
  • April 23, 2010 - "Big Ideas"- A mathematics lecture by Penny Ridgdill with music from vibraphonist Jeannette Muzima & Glitter Guerrilla
  • April 30, 2010 - The Bourgeois Residency Volume IV - "Cover Versions" - Jason & friends perform the Kinks and ALOTTLE plays a roaring Monkees set. Special guest stars Serendipity (Jason's mom's band)
On this past Friday, the event was called A Song & A Guitar and it featured twenty one performers, each playing only one song on one guitar.  I'm not going to try to remember everyone who played or what they played.  I'll just say that all around the show received positive reviews.  I sat up front throughout the entirety and thoroughly enjoyed being able to hear all these songs.  Well played, everyone.  Someone was making videos and taking pictures, so keep your eyes peeled.

I'll see you on the next three Fridays.
