If you like Bourbon and singing and instrument-playing Broads (and what’s not to like about either?), then the Neptune Theater will be a good place for you this Friday, September 16 as STG presents, obviously, Bourbon & Broads. There will be women playing music and bourbon reps on hand to provide all the infromation you’ll ever want to know about their bourbons, and there will be bourbon drink specials, flights, shots, cocktails at the bar and what not. All bourbon, all night. Just be careful driving home.
As for the music there will be Sera Cahoone, Betsy Olson, Maggie Bjorklund, Alessandra Rose, Shelby Earl and Side Saddle. I’ve seen Shelby a couple times, most recently at Bumbershoot, and she’s got that beaufitul country-indie-folk-pop thing going on, and I’ve seen Maggie Bjorklund perform with Rachel Flotard’s Cobird’s Unite (great show), but this will be my first time seeing her do her own thing. The others? Betsy Olson will be the most rocking act of the night, and I do quite like the groove of “Waitin’” … maybe even enough to mosey out on the dance floor should she play it.
A quick listen to most of the Broads promises a largely mellow evening though, and that’s fine with me. I like to sip my bourbon and relax, anyway, maybe carry on a conversation with a broad or two. And so you’ll find me back by the bar sipping, talking and taking notes, and letting the Broads, those singing and instrument-playing ones, do their thing. Should be a good time.
