I'm looking forward to the Monkey House concert tonight at Robyn and Jim Dubinsky's: Michigan blue grass band Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys from 6 to 8:30 preceded by a potluck dinner at 5.  It's sold out, but you can email Jim about the waiting list for any last minute cancellations at rhetoric73@yahoo.com.

Lindsay Lou has a bluesier voice than what you might be expecting, which gives her band a unique sound.  Here are a couple of samples.  First a video of  "The Fix" (recorded July 29, 2013 at Bending Sickle Farm in Stockbridge, MI by John Hanson) adds Patrick M'Gonigle on fiddle.

And from the latest (second) album, Release Your Shrouds, here's a video of the eleventh cut, "Lemon Squeezy" recorded at WYCE Radio, 

The entire playlist is as follows:

1. Hat's Off
2. My Side Of The Mountain
3. Tied Down to You
4. Leaves And Pods
5. Pass Me The Whiskey
6. Querida Tierra
7. The Leaves Are Changin'
8. Wonderful You Are
9. Barbarossa
10. The Power
11. Lemon Squeezy
12. All Day

Upcoming concerts at Monkey House include:

April 5, 2014:  Kelley McCrae

UPDATE:  What a show!  Actually Salem musician P. J. Brown was on bass and Keith Billik was MIA.  Here's P.J. playing Lemon Squeezy, but on piano:
