You know the season is upon us when there are 26 live shows over the weekend and most of the summer-only venues aren’t even open yet. (If you’re a summer business, stop what ever you’re doing, take Paul & RD’s advice and let him know when you open: see here).
And just in case you’ve missed my incessant plugs for taking kids to live music, here we go again … shows start as early as 7pm tonight and tomorrow. Then on Sunday it’s 8 different start-times in 8 1/2 hours: 11am, 2pm, 3, 5, 5:30, 6, 7 and 7:30. See the complete weekend live music schedule here.
One of this weekend’s shows features Noise publisher/editor T Max, who’s got a new CD out soon. And on that CD, is a new song Clickity Clack, which was inspired by a spontaneous burst of creativity from over a year ago, when we filmed his walk through Gloucester’s music scene (see the video series here). Now he’s turned it into a clever romantic tragedy with an edge (see lyrics and chords here).
Here’s the original spontaneous creative burst from February 2012
Here’s the new version a year later performed by T Max with Bird Mancini
