Kassini Hits The Road

Posted on Updated on

Next Monday, September 17th, Kassini kicks off their fall tour with a gig at the legendary Asbury Park club, The Saint. Their next show is one week from tonight, September 19th, at Columbia’s own Sonoma’s in the Owen Brown Village Center. 

This is a big deal for me personally since Columbia is my home town. I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to the show. It’s going to be an amazing night of music, as Kassini is really starting to heat up right now. After their Sonoma’s gig, they have a show in DC on Thursday night, A show in Richmond on Friday night and a headlining slot Saturday night at the world famous Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach, DE for the Dewey Beach Music Conference.

The following week sees them in NYC, Philly and Atlantic City. It’s a whirlwind for sure, but that’s the life of a touring band. I really hope you can come to the Sonoma’s gig. Sierra Nevada is sponsoring the evening with $3 cans of it’s delicious, cold pale ale, and I am really hoping for a good hometown crowd to see this amazing new band. 

If you haven’t heard of them yet, you soon will. Come on out and see them before they get huge. Here’s the video for their song, “Just Like Me”. See you at Sonoma’s!

The cool thing about this job is getting to be one of the first people to hear new music from our artists. Today, I had the pleasure of listening to Kassini’s  new album, which is almost completely finished, and I am not exaggerating when I say it’s a game changer. Get ready world. Kassini’s coming at ya!

The Turn have changed their name/identity to T.U.R.N., which stands for True Urban Rhythm Notion. Tomorrow night, they’ll be tearing it up at Michael’s in Kings Contrivance. Also on the bill are The Bumpin Uglies.

2 of Baltimore’s hottest bands under one roof in Columbia! What could be better than that? Oh, right. $3 Sierra Nevada drafts and free giveaways. See you there!

The Turn at Michael’s

The Turn are hot right now. Their highly anticipated debut album, Dega Lane, will be released later this month, they are headlining Sierra Nevada’s 30th Anniversary Party at RFD in DC on the 13th, and tomorrow night, they are playing at Michael’s Pub in Columbia.

Here they are playing, “Layers and Lines”. They go on at 9. See you there.

“Don’t give up the first word…

…for the last laugh.”

Layers and Lines by The Turn is the best song I’ve heard in long time. Lead singer and keyboardist Ian Macfie and guitarist George Cowan close the song by furiously repeating the quote above over and over while drummer J Watts keeps it all together with a tight, sweeping style.

Here they are playing it last weekend. Watch for Cowan’s solo starting at 2:36. It’s sick.

Another New Original From The Turn

As I mentioned in my previous 2 posts, The Turn had a busy day on Saturday. Here they are playing the inaugural Gilly’s Fine Craft Beer/Sierra Nevada/Urban BBQ Block Party in the afternoon. I didn’t catch the name of this song, but it has been in my head since Saturday. They said it’ll be on their upcoming album, so stay tuned for details….

1 Day, 2 Shows For The Turn

Posted on Updated on

True to their name, The Turn are starting to turn a lot of heads with their tight grooves and flowing lyrics. Tomorrow, you have 2 chances to catch this up and coming 3 piece out of The Dena.

First, they’re playing an outdoor charity event at Gilly’s in Rockville in the afternoon sponsored by Sierra Nevada. Then later that night, they’ll be back home at the Cheshire Crab in Pasadena.

Get out and see them now because before long, you’ll be paying big bucks to see these guys.
