George Harrison's landmark 1970 triple-record "All Things Must Pass" is the selection for the first Gusto Vinyl Happy Hour, which takes place 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, May 14 at the Sportsmen's Tavern.
Buffalo News Music Critic Jeff Miers and 97 Rock DJ Anita West will co-host the event, the first in a monthly series on select Mondays throughout the summer.
Each month, Miers and West will pick a classic slab of vinyl from a variety of genres, spin portions of it live in the club, and then open the floor to discussion and questions. The evening will be capped by a live performance from a hand-picked selection of Buffalo's finest musicians, who will perform their own interpretations of selections from that month's album.
On May 14, it will be David Michael Miller (guitar and vocals), Naryan Padmanabha (sitar) and Eric Tyrone Crittenden (sax, keys, vocals) performing some "All Things Must Pass" classics.
No advance purchase necessary. There is a $7 cover at the door.
Come out for happy hour drinks, classic vinyl, an intelligent discussion and the finest local music, all at the club the annual Ameripolitan Awards recently decreed "the finest venue for Americana music in the world."
