If you haven't heard Isbell perform, come get acquainted with one of the better singer-songwriters working in roots rock this Saturday at Chelsea's.
Speaking of getting acquainted, North Gate Tavern on West Chimes street is celebrating its fourth anniversary of offering a showcase for local talent. Places like the North Gate that are willing to give lesser-known bands a shot at building a following are key to keeping a music scene vibrant, and they are to be commended. Come out Saturday and run up a bar tab with Elsah, Borderline Cuckoo and Astereo Round, all in the name of getting acquainted.Link to original with local events calendar
